[softpedia] Gigabyte's HD4000-Series Cards Get Priced

$199 and $372.43 for the HD 4850 and HD 4870, respectively

Only two days left until AMD is expected to officially release their next-generation Radeon graphics cards, but even so, users can already place their orders for one of these cards. Besides the three manufacturers that have already rushed to make public the specification list for their Radeon HD 4000-series cards, one online shop from Europe has even put a price tag on Gigabyte's version of the high-end HD 4870 GPU.

What is interesting is that on Gigabyte's official web site, you can only find the HD 4850 card and no high-end HD 4870 model. Still, the grafikkartenpower.de website gives out a general specification list for this 239 EUR card and even offers pictures of the product.

According to the featured spec list, the high-performance card provides a GPU speed of 750MHz and comes equipped with 512MB of GDDR5 memory running at 1800MHz on a 256-bit memory bus. The clock speed for the 800 available stream processors isn't specified and the site doesn't mention any game bundles.

If the price tag of the card is anywhere near its true value, then we can draw one conclusion: AMD will respond to NVIDIA's price cut strategy and is going to sell its high-end graphics card for roughly the same price as NVIDIA's GeForce 9800GTX+ card.

At this moment we cannot say for certain if the listed card is really one of Gigabyte's products or even if the featured price is really what this card is going to sell for. All we know for certain is that Gigabyte has listed its version of a Radeon HD 4850 card, which comes equipped with a standard single slot cooling system and is featured at $199.99 on the newegg shopping site. According to this website, the card is in stock and will arrive to users in 3 working days.

372 is expensive but it seems fair after seeing the different "leaked" benchmark results. Once the X2 version comes out the price is surely going to easy up a bit. I don't see any reason to stay with Nvidia this time around.

My only complaint is the that they need to fix folding performance 100%.

I'll definately wait for some confirmation on the price. The past few days I've seen the 4870 for $229, $299, and now $372 haha.

Calm down guys... That $372 is what it costs @ grafikkartenpower.de just converted from EUROs into USD. We all know that Germans pay 19% Value added tax as well and I'm sure they suffer from price gouging just as we do here in the states. (Excluding VAT that's ~$312USD)

Hmmm, I would take all this with a pinch of salt. I would only wait for OFFICIAL product and price info from the manufacturers themselves. I do not think this is anything to go by.

229$ is for the 9800GTX+ 299$ was supposed to be for the 4870. It still should be.
