Even though a small delay was predicted for Radeon 9800 boards, ATI announced today they have started shipping the cards already, leaving no room for NVIDIA to get at least some attention when their cards start appearing on retail.

ATI also claims they will deliver the promise and will be shipping 9200 and 9600 Radeons later this month; I wonder what is going to happen with those manufacturers that just recently announced products based on the 9500 Pro chip.
