ECTS Report on Radeon 8500
12:36 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
In a very brief but interesting report, The Inquirer -- a hardware-oriented web site that always seems to be the source of the latest industry gossip -- has described their experience with the ATI Radeon 8500 at the ECTS Expo. It seems they were very impressed by the product demos that they saw, and quote ATI reps as say the card "is faster than the GeForce 3" with the most recent version of the card drivers.
More importantly the ATI reps stated that the cards will be available the second week of October in the UK, which means that ATI should hit their target date of the end of September in the US as we tend to get things first. That would be the launch date for the PC version of the cards, of course -- the release date for the Radeon 8500 Mac Edition is still not known, though we have been promised by ATI that it would not be a long wait.
Preview: ATI Radeon 8500
IMG's representative at the ECTS expo got his own eyefull of the 8500 in action, and he was quite impressed to say the very least. We hope to bring you a detailed report on his experience very soon. Stay tuned!
