Among a broad range of exclusive products and prototypes, Noctua’s award-winning A-series fans took centre stage: the highlight of this year’s line-up was a live performance demonstration of the upcoming 120x25mm model that features a record tight 0.5mm tip clearance and will be manufactured from Noctua’s novel Sterrox® liquid-crystal polymer (LCP) compound. Pitted against two of the renowned NF-F12 fans on an NH-U12S heatsink at a heatload of 190W, just one of the new fans was shown to provide the same or slightly lower temperatures. At the same time, the single fan configuration produces lower noise levels and a more pleasant acoustic profile. The new fan is currently undergoing extensive pre-production tests and should be available in Q3/Q4.

-- Noctua press release in June 2017.

Has there been any further word on these fans? They seem to have disappeared off the radar since their initial preview at Computex 2017.

The latest information from Noctua is their tweet of 30 December 2017 which says "Leider gibt es noch eine weitere Verzögerung in der Produktion, daher ist der Release nun erst im weiteren Verlauf des ersten Quartals geplant". Google translates this as "Unfortunately, there is another delay in production, so the release is scheduled for the remainder of the first quarter" which I think means late Q1 2018.

According to this tweet, the new fans are only "a few weeks" away.
