The Inquirer was told by a senior executive from ATI that the Radeon X1800XT will be available in November.
He also claimed ATI still has some headroom to launch a new Radeon X1800 clocked higher than 625MHz (core) /1500MHz (memory).
The company confirmed that it can and will ship volumes of X1800XT in November and I believe that our US readers should be able to easily buy one for Thanksgiving shopping in quantities. Bear in mind that Radeon X1800XT cards will start appearing on the 10th of November, even before Thanksgiving but those cards might be already sold by pre-order.
The slower Radeon X1800XL are already finished and should be available real soon.
