Windows 7: AMD to launch DX11 GPUs in 7 weeks.

AMD to launch DX11 GPUs in 7 weeks.

For the past week and a half, we've been hearing rumors citing various dates for the launch of AMD's DirectX 11 graphics cards… ranging from GDC in China to newly invented delays that would push the launch window in to November.

However, all of these rumors are false, given that AMD has firmed its "Cinema 3.0/DirectX 11" launch. As tradition goes, the North American launch will happen in seven weeks in San Francisco on a very special place indeed - but we're not at liberty to say where the event will take place. All we can say is that it will be someplace that neither Intel nor nVidia would even remember.

these DX11 cards are causing quite a stir, its reported the difference is ''supposed'' to be huge.

shame.......i wont be upgrading for quite some time

Unfortunately I was under the impression that these were another 5-6 months away - otherwise I would have held off buying the 4890's

I was also under the impression that DX11 game support would take as long DX10 did to take off...
