While rumors about a December launch date for AMD's dual-GPU Radeon R9 Fury X2 have been going around for some time, it appears actual retail availability of the card may take a bit longer. Rumor site WCCF Tech picked up news that AMD is planning to paperlaunch the card later this month and that retail market availability won't happen until later in Q1 2016. The dual-GPU beast is reportedly suffering from scheduling issues in production and may not be on shelves until after January 2016.
Benchlife.info claims that while AMD has delivered engineering samples for testing, it has yet to begun AIB seeding and full fledged mass production. Which if true, could mean a delay in the order of months, not weeks. Although the source in question is reliable and has been accurate in the past, I would still urge the usual grain of salt with this – just in case. While we are on the topic, I would also like to report that AMD’s Fury X2 was recently spotted on Zauba. AMD has decided to scrub the identifying information from GPU shipments but the timing and pricing of the item makes it pretty obvious.
More news and rumors will likely follow in the coming days/weeks.
