This means the chips are ready and that you'll be able to buy these cards within a couple of weeks.

Graphics cards based on these processors are expected to be available at online retailers within a few weeks from board customers including Asustek Computer, Club 3D, Diamond Multimedia, Gecube, Gigabyte Technology, HIS, Micro-Star International (MSI), Palit, PowerColor, Sapphire and VisionTek, said AMD.
