AMD will launch its new generation of graphics cards on December 15th. The new cards that launches as the Radeon HD 6900 series have been delayed from November and is said to have a hard time keeping up with NVIDIA's latest monster, the answer will be a new price war.

The solution will be a new price war where HD 6970 will be between 50-70 USD cheaper than the flagship from NVIDIA. NVIDIA's reply and exactly how the four cards match up (HD 6970/6950 and GTX 570/580) will have to wait until next week

DigiTimes says that sources at graphics card makers confirms that availability will be limited to begin with, which comes at anything but a surprise.
