Radeon X1950 arriving September 14th, RD600 a month later

DailyTech previously reported ATI would launch its GDDR4 equipped Radeon X1950XT and X1950 CrossFire graphics cards on August 23rd. According to ATI's latest launch advisory, dated August 11, the launch date has now been pushed back to September 14th, 2006.

ATI has pushed back the launch of its Radeon X1950 and Radeon X1900 CrossFire cards due to availability issues. There’s no word if ATI will be hard launching Radeon X1950 cards, though it makes perfect sense given the later launch date. Previously released vendor benchmarks showed the Radeon X1950XT and X1950 CrossFire combination beating out a similarly configured NVIDIA Quad SLI system.

ATI’s upcoming CrossFire Xpress 3200 for Intel processors is expected to arrive a month after the Radeon X1950XT and X1950 CrossFire cards too. The upcoming CrossFire Xpress 3200 is expected to have two full speed PCI Express x16 slots for CrossFire dual-graphics technology. A third PCI Express x16 slot will be available for ATI’s Triple physics GPU accelerated Physics processing architecture. There will also be official support for DDR2-1066 memory and Intel’s Core 2 Conroe processors too.

Update 08/16/2006: The date we published is just for retail availability.  The embargo is scheduled for August 23, 2006.
