According to our sources close to AMD AIBs in the Far East, the upcoming Antilles dual-GPU card should ship shortly after Chinese New Year.

This is hardly a surprise, as we expected it to appear in this timeframe. If all goes well the new card should appear in late February, or early March in smaller markets. As usual, Nvidia will also introduce its dual-GPU card at about the same time.

Until then AMD's HD 5970 will be the king of the hill. Despite its age, it's a lightning fast card and several weeks ago AMD slashed its price to €399. Sadly, this tempting price has gone out the window and the HD 5970 is currently selling for upwards of €460 in the EU.
