AMD's R600 event – THG are packing their bags for Tunisia

AMD will be showing off their next-generation R600 graphics card for both desktops and mobile platforms. Most of the journalists should land sometime on April 22nd and the actual briefings will occur on the 23rd and 24th.

Unfortunately, you'll have to wait for all the juicy technical details because the reporters have signed a non-disclosure agreement that forbids them to talk for several weeks. Of course that could prove difficult with hundreds of reporters in one spot. Maybe AMD will sic the lions and cheetahs on reporters who get out of line.

The R600 launch comes at a crucial point in AMD's history because it's hemorrhaging money. The chip maker reported a $611 million dollar quarterly loss yesterday and this launch could help turn things around.

The actual launch of the card will happen late May early June.

The story is too old to be commented.

I can't wait to see what the R600 is capable of. If it's to smoke the G80, then obviously I'd just get an R600. I'm gonna upgrade this summer, so I'm just waiting for a tech showdown comparison from Then I'll know what to get. ^__^

Anybody with me on this?
