AMD Slashes Radeon HD 3850 and HD 3870 512MB Card Prices

Just one day before the release of the GeForce 9600 GT, AMD has decided to cut the prices of the Radeon HD 3850 and HD 3870 512MB versions. The price cuts will first be felt in the US followed by the rest of the world and will see the HD 3870 go from $244 to $189 and the 512MB HD 3850 from $199 to $169. Earlier today Advanced Micro Devices also pointed out that AMD offers better performance with its HD 3870 Series, compared to GeForce 9600 GT, based on the preliminary benchmark results posted on the net. After tomorrow we'll see about that for real. Sources: TechConnect Magazine, DigiTimes

HD 3870's are 170$ for the cheap-o sapphire cooler and 180$ for nice coolers.

HD 3850's are 130$ for 256mb and 150-160$ for 512mb versions.

Kinda makes me cry that I payed 220$ for my HD 3850 512mb :(

I feel sad... my 3850 was one of the cheapest, and I paid I think it was 114 for it, now that 3870 is around for 10 quid cheaper... :(
