Graphics Cards 1673 Published by ImageLooks like actual volume availbiliuty of AMD's upcoming Radeon 6000 series prodyct will be available later then the launch date.  DigiTimes was told that mass shipments of AMD's new graphics cards are slated for November, and the site also reports that NVIDIA will cut the price of its GeForce GTX 460 768MB and introduce the entry-level GeForce GT 430 (GF108).

Nvidia is set to launch its new entry-level GeForce GT 430 (GF 108), which should have a large shipment share, around October 19 with its mainstream product, the GeForce GTX 460 768MB to see its price drop and attack AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5000-series.

As Nvidia started an attack with its Fermi-series and announced it has regained the lead over technologies at GTC 2010, AMD has started its counterattack. As Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) changed the schedule of its new manufacturing process causing AMD's Radeon HD 6000-series to continue adopting its 40nm process, rumors about the new GPU's lower-than-expected performance and launch schedule have been circulating in the IT market, therefore, AMD has decided to officially launch its Radeon HD 6000-series on October 19, a week later than the original schedule of October 12, with the Radeon HD 6870 possibly the first for launch.
