AMD Pushes Launch of HD 7950 to February

Just a few days removed from the possible specifications leak of the AMD HD 7950 video card comes the news it will not be available next week. The HD 7970 will be launching next week, January 9th, but the HD 7950 will not launch until the first week of February. The AMD HD 7970 had a paper launch before Christmas, but only review samples were sent out. To avoid another paper launch for the 7950, AMD decided it will release it at the same time as review samples are sent out. This could be good news for some, since NVIDIA is expected to launch its 28nm Kepler products around the end of January or first of February. It could give AMD a leg up with the HD 7970 launching a few weeks prior to the rest, and then the HD 7950 will be competing directly with the NVIDIA products. Whatever the case will be, it looks like the beginning of 2012 will renew the video card rivalry all over again.
