HD4870 dropping a bit in price on Newegg Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Product Last response: July 12, 2008 8:56 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Dalyinx July 11, 2008 8:44:59 PM http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... Is this indicative of higher availability? More about : hd4870 dropping bit price newegg huron a b U Graphics card July 11, 2008 9:04:01 PM I thought that ~$300 was the retail price of them. You could find them for awhile with rebates, so to me it seems about the same. yadge July 11, 2008 9:07:44 PM Yeah, but they were $310 for a while, and now Visiontek has it for $295. It's pretty exciting, I hope the price continues to drop. Related resources GTX 260 vs HD4870 - Forum GTX 260 216 or HD4870 1GB?

They didn't even need to drop prices - they already beat Nvidia's price/performance! spathotan July 11, 2008 10:58:20 PM Probably due to more stock and the GDDR5 shortage easing up a bit. homerdog July 11, 2008 11:31:13 PM Dalyinx said:http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=E... Is this indicative of higher availability? I'd say the higher availability is indicative of higher availability And yes it probably has something to do with GDDR5; AMD has been pumping out RV770s for a while. zipz0p July 12, 2008 8:36:42 AM And it's just in time to counter the $300 (after rebate) GTX260, which they continue to trump both in price and performance.
