When will the 8970 be released?

I was just thinking whether i should wait for the 8970 to be released or get the 7970, anybody have any idea when the 8970 will be released? some people say december. anybody have any idea?

In my life time. 

The 670 I have is good enough LOL

Well no one really knows for sure at this point, but I've been hearing rumors about either the first or second quarter of 2013.

Im assuming it will be similar to the time the 7970 was relased?
