AMD's HD 7000 series are being released at the moment, the HD 7970, HD 7950, HD 7770 and HD 7750 are already out and the HD 7870 and HD 7850 will be around shortly. They will then be followed by the lower end cards and some kind of dual chip card.

Nvidia's 600 series were due around April to coincide with Ivy Bridge but now Ivy Bridge has been held back until June so who knows when they will release them now. Probably sometime between April and June though.

Nobody knows for sure what the prices are going to be. There has been a lot of rumors going around but nothing I would call creditable. But it would stand to reason that the prices should be inline with AMD's 7xxx series.

I'm impressed with the performance and low power consumption of the HD 7850, if a passively cooled version is released I'm gonna snap that up.

will the 7850 be able to play games sutch as skyrim and bf3 at ultra quaility on a 1080x1920 display?

Depending on size of screen, yes they will, My hd 5770 can manage skyrim on ultra on a lower res so the 7850 should be able to manage this no bother

My GTX 460 does both of those fine at 1920x1200 at ultra high but with the AA and AF toned down slightly and the HD 7850 is a lot better. About the same as a GTX 570 IIRC.
