R600 is delayed until Q2. There's no suggestion on when in Q2 yet, though.
We have just learned that AMD's upcoming and eagerly anticipated R600 graphics processor has been delayed until the second quarter.
Something drastic enough to prevent AMD from launching this quarter has gone wrong, but the company didn't really go into the specific cause of the delay.
We could speculate all day long, but we'll leave that to someone else.
The chip was scheduled to get its first public outing under the lights in the Hanover Messe at this year's CeBIT trade show, but that is starting to look unlikely given this news.
