Default ATI cuts prices on the 3850 and 3870

Price warfare
By Charlie Demerjian: Wednesday, 19 March 2008, 9:25 AM

ATI IS GOING TO drop prices on the 3850 and 3870 in the next day or two. This is not a short term thing, it is a permanent cut.

The price on the 3850/512 is going to sink to $145 or below, and the 3870/512 should hit $159 or less. At that money, many may ask, why bother with the 3850?

In any case, these are screamingly good deals. You can buy three 3870s for the price of a 3870X2, or three and a mobo for less than a GX2. Not bad.

I wonder when I get my new 3870 X2 and a tax refund Maybe I should get a different mobo and a 3870 and crossfire them?

Twin 3870's Hmmmmm, looking good, I still want to wait until the 4870s come out but at that price waiting will be hard.

Yeah, the 3870s dropped down to $199 on some models for a while, but I'm guessing that supply/demand is still keeping the prices up.
