As we reported recently, ATI and NVIDIA may very well introduce their next generation of GPUs at Computex this year. Along with that, ATI may also unveil their Multi-VPU or "SLI" technology at the world's largest hardware tradeshow as well.
After some of our sources disclosed that information, we were immediately interested in product availability and pricing information on ATI's upcoming R520 based cards. A source close to ATI's board partners revealed that R520 based graphics adapters will start appearing on shelves sometime in Q3 or between July - September timeframe. This would mean that if ATI introduces their R520 at Computex, which will take place in Taipei, Taiwan from May 31st - June 4th, there's a minimum of one-month delay before actual products appear on retail shelves.
