There's a $200 HD5850, and $300 HD5850's. AIBs were a bit late to the party.

Prices are not bad, as expected the average difference in price when comparing the 5850 to the 6870 is about 60.00$ give or take depending on model. Now we need some non synthetic benchies to see what the card can achieve. The minimum frame drop was improved, now all we need to find out is what they did in the tessellation dept.

so the 6850 falls below the 5850 in performance and the 6870 does the same with the 5870....did ATI hire a bunch of Nvidia sales guys to name their new cards?


+1

I guess it necessary since AMD was not able to pull a rabbit out of the hat like we expected.

The 69xx series should surprise us, but who knows when those cards will be launched (AMD says Q4 around X-mas). Im just happy the 5850 is at a ridiculous cheap price ATM, and with things going they way they are I bet the price will keep dropping. Right now is the best time to upgrade (if needed), I have never seen so much performance at such a low price.

I think in late november theres going to be a second release with a 69xx series of cards that is pretty much going to blow everything away. My guess would be a 6950 at around 300 dollars and a 6970 for close to 400 bucks.
