I don't think there are any official prices yet, but I'll guess somewhere in the neighborhood of $550 at launch.

well, using AUD as my estimate..

when the 3870X2 came out, it retailed for about $500 AUD, as opposed to the 3870's ~$300

so my guess, $550-$600 AUD retail for down under. the 4870 currently retails for $380-$400, depending on brand/where you go.

My personal guess is US$550. The other interesting thing is that it hasn't been officially named the HD4870X2 yet, even on this slide. Maybe they're going to go for an HD4900 series branding.

$550? You save atleast $50 bucks for 15% the performance of crossfire 4870s. Not bad if that manages to be the price. :x

I think the most expensive ATI card to date has been the X1900XTX, if I'm not mistaken, that card used to be in the $800USD range. Nowadays, I really can't see any of their new products breaking $600. Besides, the price of the 4870 will probably be below $250 by the time the X2 is released.

thats how im looking at it.

~$600 AUD on a guess for a 4870X2 (or whatever they call it )

or $690 at the very best for Crossfire 4870's .. and the 4870X2 is rumoured to perform better.

my next question then is...driver issues? lets face it, ATI SUCK for providing release-date drivers. lets hope they change that this time. that sounds old.

Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see. I dont believe any of these sites until users here start benching. This hype rolls around with every AMD launch.

ahhh, the skeptic.

to be honest, after seeing the results of the 4870 live up to and imo past expectations, i have very high hopes for this new round of monsters.

im not gonna get too excited obviously. and besides, by the time i get back from my trip and consider a 4870X2, mature drivers should hopefully be on the rise.

I've been skeptical of every AMD launch since the 2900 series. I hope the new x2 rocks, believe me. But the 3870x2 left much to be desired And I just think OCNers are more reliable than any other place

From Fudzilla:
Quote:
The dual RV770-based R700 card is supposed to launch in August time, rather late than early, and the hardware is ready; it is now all up to the drivers.
Seeing as there's pictures of the hardware, I have no reason to doubt what they're saying. I'm hoping this means that they want the drivers to be good on launch day, and not that they're broken enough that they need extra work. After being so outright impressed at how the HD4k series shatterd my expectations, I'm going to remain optimistic. Given past AMD launches, this one has been executed damn near flawlessly, and I'm confident that they really know what they're doing.
