Default Radeon HD 5870 hits the market at $379.99!

Radeon HD 5870 on NewEgg.


Must... get... one...



Looks like I wont ever be getting a Radeon HD 4890 lol... I've still been holding out on that last piece waiting for the price to drop, and now just seeing the 5870 I'm gonna end up shelling out for that beast instead.

Reading at the moment so don't know what performance is like yet (Although I think we all have a pretty good idea! )

EDIT: Trades blows with the GTX 295. Most power hungry single GPU card though, LOL

RE-EDIT: Reading these latest reviews show how far the HD 4870 X2 has come since the 295's launch, they're almost neck and neck now.

Wow the 5800 series out already...
I would say the 5800 series are roughly equivalent to high end GeForce 200 series in terms of performance.

ATI however, does have a really good pricing.
This is going to prob drop prices for all GPUs right now.

Neways, when is the GeForce 300 series coming...
