According to the The Inq, ATI has a big lead of next-gen GPUs as the R580 is supposedly nearly ready and the G71 is still some time off.
IT SEEMS that Nvidia might not be out with its G71 as soon as expected. We heard that it might sample as soon as next week, but major OEMs and partners confirmed that they still haven't seen the hardware and that they've all had R580, Radeon X1900 XTX for some times now.

We also heard that the chip should work around 700 MHz frequency and as we reported before it should feature 32 pixel pipelines.

Do they really think people are falling for this?
Its Platinum Edition, or PE, appeared in such short supply it became known as the 'Press Edition' or even 'Pathetic Edition' such was its scarcity. It was so rare that you could barely get it. We'll applaud ATI for actually learning something from past mistakes.
Competitor Nvidia had a similar branding problem with its Ultra line, which was dumped in favour of the GTX label.
