AMD Cayman pushed back to December 13

Written by Slobodan Simic

Still before Christmas

We just got a nice little tip from one of our trusted sources that AMD just gave an official new date for Cayman launch, the 13th of December. This means that despite a brief delay, Cayman will still be on retail/e-tail shops before Christmas, and if the performance is right, will end up to be the fastest single GPU card this year.

The new date was given by AMD officially and probably sent to all partners and selected editors. It looks like the problem is quite real and partners mostly don't care about this delay as they have enough other cards to sell and as long as the card comes before Christmas. According to what we know, partners didn't recieve the final BIOS or the final driver for that matter, but that should hopefully change by the end of the month.

We are quite sure that we'll hear more about AMD's Cayman once it gets its final driver, as until then, the performance details are purely speculative and any early benchmark figures seen so far should be taken with a grain of salt, as proper drivers could squeeze out a bit more performance.

I do web development which while not exactly hardware does give me the perspective that delays are inevitable. I think all things considered AMD has been doing awesome to keep getting products out with minimal delays while getting this close to having Fusion and it's mobile counterpart very close to getting in to our hands.

Yes, poor AMD, they've only sold 90% of all DX11 chips and are only the market leader in discrete graphics… They really suck!

That's unfortunate. I was looking forward to the reviews and finding out how much they cost, this month. I hope they won't delay the cards too much.
