NVIDIA is having their day in the sun with the successful launch of the GTX 460, but according to Peter Chow from HIS, ATI is readying to announce a whole new graphics series around Q4 2010.
“At present, we're concentrating on AMD/ATI Radeon 5xxx Series. We have been pushing our products with our own in-house designed coolers ... and it's selling very well. Next, we're expecting the new AMD/ATI Radeon 6xxx Series to be announced later this year around Q4 2010. After which, we will be releasing our own Radeon HD 6xxx series early next year."
A Q4 2010 release for the new series of Radeon cards really shows just how large of a head start the Fermi delay gave ATI. Of course, NVIDIA will try to have a strong counter-option to ATI’s 6xxx series. With this revelation, it is starting to look as if 2011 might be another great year for PC gamers.
