ATI has informed its bellowed partners that it will launch Radeon HD 4870 cards next week with a new suggested e-tail price. Instead of going for $329, ATI will launch its cards at $299, as it wants to position this card better than GTX 260, its main competitor.
Geforce 9800 GTX is listed in American e-tail for as low as $259.99 after a mail- in rebate, but the first information we've gathered confirms that Radeon HD 4870 is faster than 9800GTX.
Nvidia has new driver and 9800 GTX+ card to fix the situation, but Geforce GTX 260 is still not available, and when it becomes available it will be selling for $399.
What else can we say if not price wars?
