[Fud] Radeon HD 4870 to sell for $329

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I think this was to be expected but I thought I would post it. I bet they end up cheaper by the time they come out.

Soon to drop

"Nvidia will price its Geforce GTX 260 to $399 with a strong possibility to drop it even further. At the same time ATI will position its Radeon HD 4870 to $329 as this will bring ATI to desired price / performance level. GTX 260 should be a bit faster but it will, at the same time, cost more.

The original plan was to price RV770XT closer to $229 but we believe ATI wants to probe the market and that RV770XT ended up faster compared to GT200 than people would have expected.

If Nvidia drops the GTX 260 prices to $329 or close to that ATI can definitely go down with the price and still make some money.

This definitely means that at some point you will be able to buy RV770XT based card to close to $200 but this might take a month or two.

Over all we believe that this will be a great buy for the money but $399 GTX 260 looks like an attractive offering."

I love the smell of price wars in the morning.

Pity, this used to happen in the CPU arena also.

Im thinking about grabbing two of those. Thats a good price but I want to see the official nvidia benches (as well as the 4850/4870) before I make a decision. I wish they would hurry up and get some benches out.

I really want to some a fair unbiased review os these cards against the GT200. So 4850/4870 vs. GTX260/GTX280. Ofcourse that kind of review will be hard to come by. Not going to make a decsion till I see that from a reputable site.

The 70 and 260 should be neck and neck with the 260 ahead slightly. If the 280 is 50% faster than the 260, the 4870x2 should beat it. The 50 is for the low end, it's going to be going against the current gen cards.
