Radeon HD 6870 available for €199

Update: Radeon HD 6850 available for €149.99
A quick look at our favourite price search engine has revealed that Radeon HD 6870 is already available for €199 end user etail price. The official price of the card is $239 which means that etailers are really pushing it on the price. The price was set only last night as AMD had to react on Nvidia’s last night's price drop here.

Austria's biggest retail chain has Sapphire Radeon HD 6870, 1024MB GDDR5, 2x DVI, Mini-HDMI, PCIe 2.1 cards in stock but it looks like the company got some 50 pieces. It looks like that they can quickly run out of stock.

Alternate in Germany also has cards but it doesn’t look like anyone has many of them. If you want one better buy it now, as it might be too late in a few hours.

Other partners including Asus, PowerColor, MSI, XFX still don’t have cards listed in DACH and some of them claim to have cards in two to three days.

At €199 Radeon HD 6870 sounds like a great deal but bear in mind that with recent price drop GTX 470 sells for only €10 more, and it surely offers more performance.

You can find the listing here and Sapphire available cards here.

Update: Sapphire's Radeon HD 5850 is also available for €149.99 here, and XFX has informed us that they sold out in Alternate.de and that the second batch is on the way to them and should be there next week.
