A few weeks ago, news came out that AMD's Radeon HD 7950 would be delayed until possibly mid-February for unknown reasons. This saddened a lot of people, but since it's only a month or so wait it didn't matter all that much. Well, it's recently been "overheard" that AMD will start shipping the card on January 31, 2012. Fudzilla, the source who overheard the release date, is speculating that they're using this date to coincide with NVIDIA's launch of the 28nm Kepler based GK104 GPU, but the real reasons are not known. With the launch of NVIDIA's new card, I wonder how many people will wait for benchmarks to come out and compare the two instead of just buying the AMD card on day one. Only time will tell.
