We got a confirmation that R7xx generation is on schedule for 2008 and it won't be shifted to 2009 as many journalist believe. Many journos made the assumption based on Mario Rivas presentation at Investor days.
Mario was talking about Leo platform and showed the slide with Leo platform that has R7xx based scheduled for 2009.
According to current plans R7xx parts in a platform are scheduled for 2009. This doesn’t mean that the discrete products will be late, but at least today it looks that ATI can deliver them on time, at least at some point in 2008.
