Default ATI 5870 shows up at Newegg.ca for $400 CAD

Wow what an awesome price for a new generation card.

get them while there hot or wait for the nvidia gtx300 launch and amd might do a price drop but i won't expect nvidia will sell there fresh out of the oven silicon under $400CAD

Newegg.ca - SAPPHIRE 100281SR Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

I thought Eyefinity meant it would have 6 mini-Display Ports... false advertising?

The 5870 and 5850 can do 3 displays. The 5870x2 will do 6 displays. There's 2 levels of Eyefinity.

Hey.

I trolled through the card partners sites that I could think of for product specs on the new 5000 series cards and had a bit of luck. I found some info at Sapphire and some images at Diamond. No others had any information I could find.

Here is the stuff I tracked down...

Sapphire:

5870 - SAPPHIRE- HOME

5850 - SAPPHIRE- HOME


Diamond: No specs, just images

5870 - http://www.diamondmm.com/images/mate...retail_box.jpg

5850 - http://www.diamondmm.com/images/mate...retail_box.jpg

Anyhow, if anyone has anything from XFX, Asus, MSI, HIS or Gygabyte, I'd like to have a look.

*looks at the clock because George is done on the CBC*

Nearly midnight!
Cheers
Canuck :)

Pretty decent compared to NCix which is at like $450 (they're starting to be pretty pathetic with price increases on everything with our dollar getting stronger by the month).

*Looks like they just gave in and put a -$40 instant rebate so that's at least less-money gouging.

** And like two minutes after seeing that, the discount drops in half and it's back up to $429.

I pray to something godlike that more cards are left blank or with simple colour accents and not faces, images and flaming designs.
