I was planning on buying the XFX XXX 570mhz version of the 7950GX2, called my Region Distribution to plan the order, and he informed me that theres a newer version scheduled to ship to their warehouses Mid-July, having vendor/distribution privledged information, and suggested I wait a little bit longer.

I have not seen anything official on XFX's website, or anywhere for that matter reguarding this, and was curious if anything has heard anything, or seen anything that can direct to me offically to some specs/information, and what to look for even?

The only similar information I found was here in this thread,

"XFX also told me to hold off until mid July for a newer version of the 7950, but elected to get one now.

Maybe the new ones have better cooling?

I bet they are just adding a HDMI connector.
