    Hope not! August is the latest I'm willing to wait, almost been 12 months with my 1090T as it is... And I have that blasted upgrade itch again.

    That comes from people speculating about delays on a release date that isn't even confirmed, so it doesn't sound particularly reliable.

    I do agree and it's coming from maybe 2 sources at the moment going by this article. http://news.softpedia.com/news/AMD-...each-Retail-Until-Q3-2011-Report-202051.shtml

    But it's safe to say it won't be getting a june release if HardOCP are doing a public demo in july. So August/Sept for a release wouldn't be too far of a stretch.

    Can't sleep :paranoid: Need benchies.

    But seriously, man. Go to bed. Most of the ones we're seeing turn out to be fake.

    Interested to see the benchmarks for this. I already have a Core i7 clocked at 4Ghz so my CPU upgrade is not necessary, but interesting none-the-less.
