[Fud] nVidia to drop 280/260 price tomorrow 7/3! - Page 9

post #81 of 94
I am not biased to either Nvidia or ATI. It is simple though, right now there is no better deal then crossfiring two 4870's. Anyone who does anything different either doesn't have access to eBay to sell their current nvidia motherboard or is in denial.

No surprise. They are realising that they are in a post of bother this round.

Not only that but Nvidia cards are dreadfully priced anyway IMO. This is a pricecut that was needed years ago across the board.

You know it's all business and no company will do this kind of charity. We don't know for sure what is the actual production cost and will never know even in rough estimation. Sacrificing some profit from a card in order to sell more cards results in same total profit and is reasonable.

Uk the price drop was better than expected, but no enough to sway me from the HD4000 range, and the release premium on the 4000 range seems to going down.

HD4850: £117
HD4870: £179
GTX260: £217
GTX280: £359

Its much better, but still not cutting it. ... COME ON AMD, MAKE THOSE PRICES EVEN LOWER!!!! ^^ PRICE WAR!!!!

Assuming the 4870X2 murders the GTX 280 at a cheaper price, which card do you think, consumers will spend their money on?



Not really, most P35 motherboards feature PCI-E 1.1 released back in early 2007, support CrossFire and the new PCI-E 2.0 is backwards compatible with 1.1.
It's two HD4870 cards bolted together, therefore not a single card solution. Fail.

can you read? the 4870X2 is a single card solution that has 2 gpus on it. how you get it to be 2 cards bolted together is beyond me. the fanboyism has made you a tad bonkers.
It works
