After numerous delays, it looks like AMD has picked May 14th to launch their Radeon HD 2900 XT GPU.

The plan appears to be to invite about 200 people to the Sheraton hotel in Tunis.
The problem is that company then plans a three-week silence period in the run up to launch. Nothingh from teh shindig should be posted until May 14th, our sources reveal. In today's world of immediate information, the three weeks in question sound very weird.

We learned that this could be due to late delivery of 65nm RV610LE/610XT/630Pro/630XT chips, but everything should be available in massive quantities. Of course, if there isn't for another mysterious delay that seems to happen regulary to AMD crew these days.
