After paper launching the Radeon HD 7970 in late-December, it was rumored that AMD's slightly cheaper Radeon HD 7950 would launch in February, but according to DigiTimes, this isn't true. DigiTimes reports that the Radeon HD 7950 will launch at the end of January.
It was previously rumored to launch in February, but with NVIDIA possibly launching in March-April, AMD could have pulled their plans in quicker to stop Team Green from taking the field and running with the GPU ball. NVIDIA will now have to fight AMD, but whether they can successfully launch and not have issues moving to a new process like they did with Fermi, is the question.
This news was bought to you by the "sources within add-in board (AIB) partners" who told DigiTimes. Those pesky sources, upstream and downstream always have some good info. If this is true, we could see the launch of a (hopefully) decently priced HD 7950 in just a couple of weeks time.
Are you waiting for an HD 7950? Or are you proudly wearing Team Green and waiting for a next-gen GTX 560 Ti?
