Default HD 5830 is out

ATI released yet another card. Just popped up on newegg.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...scription=5830

For $240 it isn't bad but I think a 5850 would be a better deal. I have a feeling these prices will drop to more like $200 when fermi drops.

Its 800/1000 MHz with three SP clusters disabled, giving it 1120.

EDIT: It seems to perform slightly slower than a 4850 x2.

ATI has every gap filled it seems.

Yeah pretty much. They still don't have any uber budget cards though. I think the 5450 is the cheapest at $50.

They need a 5950 too. There's a pretty massive gap between 5870 and 5970.

EDIT: Holy crap the HD 6000 series is set to be released in 3-4 months. WTF?!?!

The video card market is turning into a disaster...

Looks like I might be keeping my 5770 for a bit longer. It rips through the only two games I play anyway.

I don't like how the pace of graphics are going. I think they should slow it down. This is why I am trying harder to get an 8800GT to SLI than to just get an 5770. No matter what I get, I'll be outdated in a month or two.

So what if there are newer cards? If it performs how you want, it really doesn't matter.

I just bought a 5750 for $130 the other day. Pretty awesome deal.

I was exaggerating a bit. ATI's 5xxx series hasn't been out that long and it seems that they're talking about releasing next gen (confirmation?).then you have Nvidia's renaming brigade and Fermi delays.

What's it matter if ATI is about to release next-gen chips though?
