If you want a great graphics card and you want to spend under €200 you can go out and buy a Radeon 3870 from Gigabyte and it will cost you only €168.
This is an incredible price for a lot of graphics power and this will definitely put a lot of pressure on Nvidia’s 9600GT and 8800 series products.
At the same time 3850 512MB sunk down to just under €150, while Radeon 3850 256MB is available for €136. We expect that they will go even further down with the price, as RV670 is the only mainstream / performance chip that ATI planned for the first half of 2008.
ATI will now fight with prices as we expect that 9600GT should be a very successful chip. Nvidia’s problem now is that Geforce 9800 GX2 is still not launched and it might come even after Cebit.
