The last rumor predicting the launch date of AMD's Radeon HD 6000 series pointed to a vague November release. However, AnandTech noticed that AMD CEO Dirk Meyer was quite a bit more specific during yesterday's earnings call: "We will be launching our second-generation DX11 graphics offerings next week." Well, that settles it.
Of course, retail availability will lag behind the official launch. Meyer only committed to having all members of the 6000 line shipping by the end of this quarter. Volume is expected to be in the "hundreds of thousands" of units, though. I suspect we'll see at least one member of the new line emerge well before the end of the quarter. AMD wouldn't want to miss out on the holiday buying season, now would it?
