I don't understand why AMD keeps 'launching' products they clearly haven't manufactured. They need to stop making excuses, and start making cards!
Probably because they have a few that pass the quality test to make a 6900XT so they make a bit more profit. Yeah enough to buy the CEO lunch probably with the numbers involved!
It's silly though, they're just going to look even more incompetent than they already do. Maybe they don't care about their image any more?
Read some where that one of the biggest online retailers in Europe only has 35 - 6900XT cards to sell at launch.
So I wouldn't get your hopes up.
Since launch we have only managed to get hold of 10 - 6800's where I work and no 6800XT's at all.
Stock availability is just really bad.
