    Wtf is a black edition?
    -----

    Phenom!? Does this mean the current offerings are going to be even cheaper? God I hope, I may have to dump my plans and go back to using AMD.

    I hope it is the AVAILABILTY of the Phenom's and 790's, and not just an announcement.

    @error force: I totally agree, I hadn't even realized the whole same day release as Halo 3...I think they were attempting to ride the hype wave with H3 but I can only imagine them getting blotted out because of it...

    @JR: The X2 6400+ AMD released recently is dubbed the Black Edition and by the looks of the web site and what it says people are expecting more Black Editions of whatever, maybe CPU maybe GPU, we'll see :)

    Crysis public single player demo comes out the same day, so maybe they are releasing some bad ass Crysis drivers that put the hd 2900xt in direct competition with the 8800gtx and the hd 2600xt in direct competition with the 8600gts (Hey, I can dream, can't I?).

    no chance on the 2600XT matching up to any of the 8800GTS'...that's what the 2900Pro will be for, to fill the gap
    as for the 2900XT facing up to the GTX it's certainly possible, the XT has the potential for sure, they just have to keep tweaking the drivers to keep tapping it's potential more and more

    maybe the HD series cards will smash the nvidias in real world dx10 performance when the crysis demo comes out because they have quietly been working on the dx10 drivers for months now just like nvidia released there dx10 cards but it took them a while to get the dx10 parts of the drivers running aceptably

    What if AMD is planing to release this movie on the 25th, and it will be called: Snakes on AMD's plane! How about that!

    Hopefully, AMD's dark side can beat intel's dark side. Because currently, Darth Conroe is beating the crap out of Master Brisbane.

    You are close,..but the clue to this mystery is the KIND of snake it is.Look closely.
    Just do a little snake research, put 2 and 2 together, and you too will figure what AMD is about to "UNLEASH" to the public.

    Hmm, I am fairly adept at snakes, but I don't recognize this one. It looks almost like the copperheads we have around here, but I can't be sure. Care to give me a clue :confused:

    I'd like to know what the traffic has been on the site :)
    I bet that was one reason they did this, to see what kind of traffic it would get
    I bet it's been growing exponentially

    There using dark magic to summon satan[ snake in the garden of eden] and unlease him on the world. The apocalypses powered by AMD thats something Intel can't beat.

    It's going to be the release of the AMD 6600X2 3.4GHz Really Really Black edition.
