Anyone shipped a Geforce 6800DDL yet?

Has anyone even been notified yet? I ordered on 6/29 and I have a ship date of on or before 8/25. I called one online store and they are not set to receive any until 2nd week of September. The PC versions are starting to appear in quantity online so I am hoping Apple will not be delaying for too long.

Don't worry the GPUs for the 6800 are coming out of the same 300mm fab that the PPC970FX is coming out of.

Which should make you feel real good about possibly getting it in a reasonable time period.

I was worried about the chip supply until I saw at Pricewatch so many resellers with 6800 ultras in stock.

I will post when I know more on my order.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

What was the last product that Apple announced that they were able to ship in volume immediately after the announcement? Serious question...can anyone name something?

At least iPod minis have finally started turning up in decent volumes here in Australia over the last 2-3 weeks...

The eMac shipped in volume to the public the day they announced they'd sell it to them.

Thanks, I'd forgotten about the eMac.

Now if only it could have also been the iPod mini, PowerMac G5 (both Rev A and Rev B), GeForce 6800, PowerBooks, iMac G5s....
