ATI has once again delayed two of its products. Now we are talking about the entry level and mainstream products, the Radeon HD 2600 and 2400 cards. ATI blames a huge demand from HP, Dell and FSC (Fujitsu Siemens), but it actually cannot ramp up enough 65 nanometre chips on time.
The RV630 and R610 won't go into production untill late May. The samples are out, but the samples are not based on the final A14 silicon. ATI is now approximately four weeks behind its original agenda.
The original plan was to launch and have RV 630 and RV610 available in volumes at the end of May. There might be some cards but the real volume production and availability is expected in late June now.
