And I thought that the 28nm process was cheaper to manufacture? But these prices surely do not reflect how much it actually costs them, it is supply and demand for sure. Since these cards will wipe the floor with the 5xx series from nvidia.

I'm gonna go for ~$300 on the 7870 and ~$230 on the 7850. I know I will personally be selling my 6970 and picking up a 7870 thought because apparently they have the same performance. I wouldn't mind lower power consumption though.

Each wafer costs more, and yields are going to be poor initially. TSMC also has a lot of demand for their 28nm process. Eventually as yields pick up and production ramps up, prices should drop a bit. Also, the cost benefits from moving to a smaller process only work when the die shrinks, so there's more dies on a wafer. The 79xx dies are going to be roughly the same as 69xx, perhaps slightly bigger.

Their pricing for their 79xx cards is pretty well justified, IMO.

Do we know if HD7850 will come as 1.5 GB version or just 1GB? 1.5 GB would be perfect for GTA IV

78xx is 256 bit. It's a die shrunk 6970 though, so I'd expect 2GB of VRAM.

2gb Vram doesnt make sense when 7950 may be 1.5gb or even come in 1.5gb flavors. We will see.

Neither does 1GB of VRAM on bottom of the food chain cards tongue.gif

Awesome. I have high hopes for this card, I love pulling for the underdog.

I'm team green nvidia right now but I think this is great news for everyone -- if the projected performance is true, this will be the first
single chip GPU that can handle 1440p and 1600p respectably in games. No more SLI / xfire required for those resolutions!

Good for competition, good for enthusiasts thumb.gif

They will drop down to mid 300s for 70 and low 300 to high 200s for the 50. The 90 will def be 700 again.

What? If it meets the projected performance it most certainly will not. Remember the 5870? AMD had a ridiculously large lead on nvidia and their card prices reflected it. There was a price premium that remained until fermi was released many months later.

If 7970 matches 6990, I expect it to sell for 500$ firm.

If they release the cards at CES I wonder if they'll be selling them there...

I'll be at the show and it'd be great to pick one or two up while I am there.
