It will, we think, be introduced in the first week of March and we reckon that's intended to throw dust into Nvidia's eyes
from the Inquirer

This will be a huge blow to Nvidia but it will be a great time to buy a new card :)

Either way, I hope it's not a paper launch. I would't be surprised if they pulled one of those just so they could compete with NVIDIA's flagship.

More on R350 - Joe "Steejee" West - Hardware: ATI - (108)
[Spicy Story] Sounds like ATI has an Ace up their sleave: a top dog at ATI has told us that the R350 will debut in march, and as told before will be 10% faster than the FX, but the kicker will be that it's also $150 cheaper. The massive price difference is due to the fact the R350 will be a 10 layer PCB, while Nvidia's fastest will require 12 layers. Graphics wars are gonna be interesting in the coming months to say the least...

$150 cheaper LOL. I imagine that was based on the rumors of a $500>$600 price point on the NV30. Currently, that would put the R350 at $250 which would be roughly $100 less than the R300.

How much less does 10 layer pcb cost than 12 layer ? A couple of bucks ? I have no doubt the R350 is ready but it ain't gonna be $250.

500-150=350
600-150=450

Ummm. The FX is $399. So subtracting $150 would be $249.
