    Indeed, but does donanimhaber tend to be legit? And it mentions that they spoke with Elaine Liao from PowerColour, not AMD officials themselves.

    Did you actually read the link to Donanimhaber? There was no mention of a 2012 release at all in the original link.
     
    Jegergrim says thanks.

    Thanks, I blindfoldedly took the word of the danish forum, turns out they must have had a wrong translation

    anyways I used google translate for "serisi ekran kartlarının son çeyrekte pazarda olacağını belirtiyor."

    Turns Elaine also announced that it will be coming late Q4 ;), thanks for the clarifcation EastCoast

    Well for me personally I intentionally kept my 5870 when I built my SB rig. I know the next gen 6xxx series don't give any significant gains over my current card. I still have more "horsepower" so to speak over the 6xxx's So I will sit on this 5870 until the next gen 7xxx's come out.

    Looks like the Radeon 7000 series will be out in Q1 2012...

    PowerColor Finalizes AMD Radeon HD 7000 series Release Date

    Interview with Elaine Liao, Director of Sales of Powercolor – Regarding HD 7000 series Graphic Cards

    PowerColor has confirmed, about the launch of the next generation AMD HD 7000 series graphics cards. In an interview by the people of DonanimHaber, with Elaine Liao, Director of Sales for the brand, said that the new cards can be expected in the first quarter of 2012, as opposed to earlier rumors, which placed the launch of AMD HD 7000 series Graphic cards in the last section of this year.

    Other current articles are placing the HD 7000 series late this year and the HD 7000 APU "Trinity" in Q1 2012.

    The story you post is actually old. Lenzfire is nothing but a site that rips articles from other sites for traffic.

    That article (donanimhaber) was actually misunderstood by most referring to it, it stated that the HD 7000 series was due Q4 2011, and not Q1 2012.

    Well, in any case I think it's a safe bet that the 7K series will be coming out within the next 6 months - 1 year based on all these rumors :laugh:

    Not exactly man. I would expect more changes than just a further shrink/optimization of 5k/6k

    Long live the 9600!!!!

    (The nVidia of course!)

    The future no only is unwritten, but it is unknown. And it is more and more less 'better' and more 'milking'...

    ye too bad some sources online(google it) says the 7xxx architecture due out q4 2011 would be the shit-box models sorry to rain on your parade, if your building a system don't hold your breath, the high end versions wont be out till the quarter following the 7xxx's debut, so whenever that happens, add 3month on top of it, assuming no delays(pretty optimistic imho to assume that)

    Grab the sweetest Xmas shopping season deal, be done with it. The GTX 560 Ti 448core is shaping up to be good.
