"AMD certainly has set a aggressive pace, and so far we have not seen any
information from NVIDIA that they have a working DX11 part in house (all
rumors point to them NOT having any working silicon at this time). If TSMC
can fix its 40nm issues, and AMD can ramp these parts in a timely manner,
then it is not unreasonable to expect actual product to be available for the
October launch of Windows 7. Windows 7 will be the enabler of DX11 and Stream Compute for the desktop, and AMD is hoping (and is likely to be) the only launch partner with DX11 products for sale when Windows 7 launches. "
