The Radeon HD3800 series will launch in the U.S. late in the evening on the 14th, California time (called Pacific Time, or P.S.T.). Depending on where you live, some of you might see the first reviews at night on the 14th, while we in the Euroland will see the first reviews in the early hours of the morning on the 15th.
The RV670XT and RV670PRO cards have been sampled, the driver is out and the cards should be rocking on some reviewers' test setups, getting ready for their big introduction next week.
A week from now you will see the first official scores on how good/bad this card really is and how it compares to the super fast 8800 GT. We have already told you it will be slower than the 8800 GT, but the real question is how much slower, and how much less its price will be.
