Default AMD Announces HD3800 Price Drops

AMD Announces HD3800 Price Drops
February 20, 2008 12:46

AMD called us to announce new prices for the Radeon HD 3850 512 MB and HD 3870. In the USA tonight (and everywhere else soon after), e-tailer prices for the HD 3870 should drop from $245 to $189; The price of the HD 3850 512 MB should drop from $199 to $169.

Could this mean that something new is coming in the graphics world? Stay tuned.

That's a major price drop on the 3870 - 4x3870 CrossfireX for $756!

I think the reason is that AMD probably wants to stay competitive with the 9600GT, which will be lower than the current prices of the 3850 but faster too.

$190 for a 3870 has WIN written all over it. That's an awesome deal! But why bother with the 3850 if it's only $20 cheaper? It should be like $150 not $170.
