I was only being semi-serious with my statement. I defintely don't believe ATI paper launching the r9600 and r9200 is doing anyone a service. if you can even call it a paper launch, since there have been no benchmarks. I heard there were going to be benchmarks today....so far there is nothing.
I certainly think you have a point here - After ATi's commitment to launching products quickly after paper launches (which they certainly delivered with the R300-series cards), they do seem to have slipped up somewhat, especially in the case of the 9600.
The lack of seeing anything to do with the 9200 is even more baffling really - It's only an AGP 9100 after all.
I'd love to know the reason for the delays, particularly in the case of the 9600, seeing as we have seen working silicon of the Mobility Radeon 9600 tested and benchmarked.
