Finally a date appeared at the internet on that the huge launch of AMD/ATI's latest chip, the R600 will take place. And it won't happen anywhere near you I guess because someone decided to let all this happen in the capital of the North African state Tunisia, Tunis. The reason for that is unknown but I guess it makes it very hard for a potential thief to get away with one of the most sought-after graphics card in the world today. Either you have to swim right through the Mediterranean Sea or you end dried up to the bones in the Sahara Desert.
Anyway, TheInquirer still insists that the mass production of the R600 will be in 65nm whereas the GDDR3-cards at the launch were made using a 80nm process.

Public distribution may be disallowed but what about a random imageshack account? A imageshack based slideshow sent to some members would be awesome!

The only reason why I think they would have it in Tunisia is becuase there currently having a computer revolution, and are among the first countries in Africa to utilize computers as a teaching method, they do biology on the computer due to the visual nature its easier to understand.

Other countires don`t have to do it as they can afford laboratories to perform experiments in, they also got a huge donation to help there efforts, and after seeing the result decided to spend money on it.

Guess I can stop waiting by the mail box then:cry: I benefit no one,at least thats what the wife says.
They are going to give you a press package with stuff you can post right Like there benches,screen shots and arc details.
Do You think AMDs new proc will make and appearance in some of the test systems?

amd pays all expenses and you get to take a card home for preparing your article
