FUD Zilla heard from its anonymous sources that AMD's Pitcairn GPU (aka Radeon HD 7850/7870) will arrive after Chinese New Year, making a launch around February 20th seem likely, while the dual-GPU "New Zealand" Radeon HD 7990 card is anticipated at CeBIT around the 6th of March.
According to the current AMD schedule, Pitcairn is scheduled to launch after Chinese New Year. Since the Chinese New Year starts on February 3rd this year, and ends with Lantern Festival on the 15th day, you can expect the Pitcairn to be launched somewhere around the 20th of February, or simply a week after Chinese New Year.
There has been no talk regarding the price of these cards and the recently rumoured prices are simply an educated guess as if you have Tahiti prices, which are still not set in stone according to our sources, it is pretty easy to guess the pricing of mid-range cards. The rumoured pricing, put Pitcairn cards at US $299 and US $199. It is expected that Pitcairn will be branded as Radeon HD 7870 and HD 7850.
