HD 5850?
 
Has anyone seen one of these on sale ANYWHERE?!?! I can't seem to find one.:censored:

Not out yet

SquattingDawg September 24, 2009 05:09 PM

Well... That would explain it... :doh:

We should see reviews coming out on the 29th, followed by retail availability.

Well, a quick search of a few Canadian sites shows that the 5850s will run from about 280$ - 300$ cdn (DirectCanada listings) to 329$ - 349$ cdn (NCIX).

Considering that US sites are listing them from around 259$ to 279$ (us), just under or above 300$ would seem about right at current exchange rates.

I look forward to SKYMTL's review of that XFX 5850 he probably been playing EveOnline with for the past week! LOL

Cheers!

I too await the 5850 reviews. Totally Outperforming the 285 in the <$300 price range makes the 5850 very tempting.
I'm just afraid that the 5000's still won't fold well.

Ok... what's all this "Folding" people are talking about in posts?

Only thing I know about folding is clothes and towels.

Most likely not.

Any Updates?
 
Hey. Any updates on these cards?

In this forum, NCIXFA said he figured Oct 1st, but in the NCIX forum, a staff member there said they expected them on the 28th or yesterday.

As well...

SKYMTL said he would have an XFX 5850 review up soon after he published his most timely Sapphire 5870 review.

Any news on that that you can share SKYMTL?

Cheers!
Canuck :)
