HD 38x0 top end to sell for $199

RV670XT price is less than expected


We’ve received a short update and learned that RV670XT, the card that might end up branded as Radeon HD 3870, will sell for US$199 at launch.

Nvidia expected a US$249 price for the new RV670XT, but ATI realized that G92/D8M is a better performer and that it had to drop the price to be competitive.

The big advantage that ATI has is that its chips are smaller and the manufacturing costs are less, but even that won’t help much if they fail to sell a lot of them. We suspect that toward the holidays this $199 price might go even lower to put even more pressure on Nvidia.
