I would think February would still be fine, of course it's later than projected. I think it is close enough though. Are they launching it with anything else on the mobile platform is the big question! If so it will mess up a whole launch. If it is solo it does not matter much as it does not effect a projected platform. Either way it looks like a pretty impressive mobile addition especially with those low energy requirements, but still the extension of the brands capabilities.
I agree rapid, Nvidia doesn't seem to be releasing any new mobile chips (other than the rebranded 300M chips) anytime soon with the delays in their fermi desktop cards. So a month delay doesn't seem like much at all.
The Envy 15 from HP was supposed to be shipping out with the 5830 so it's a blow to them. It's a solo launch, everything else on the line up (except for the 5400 series) seems to have been released already.
@Soupstyle Nvidia's cards won't be out for quite some time, and even with the rebranded 300M series, nothing is in the same range of performance as the 5800 mobile line-up.
Yeah and the Envy is a specialty unit, so I bet it will just introduce the parts to the market. I doubt it will impact it much, but the Envy units sell in reduced numbers compare really.
So is the 5830 strictly a mobile chip, or can it be had in desktop cards as well?
