Industry sources claim AMD is getting better yields for its RV670 series chips. This will allow them to cut prices and there's also a rumour that the firm is working on a card with two Radeon HD 3850 GPUs:
RV670 chips, fabbed under Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company's (TSMC's) 55nm process, have seen a noticeable increase in yields recently, the sources noted, which will enable AMD to be more price competitive, they believe.

AMD is scheduled introduce the RV670-based Radeon HD 3830 for the entry-level market in April or May priced around US$99-149. The company is also planning to launch a second dual-GPU solution, the Radeon HD 3850 X2, in May, with a price tag of US$299-379. The Radeon HD 3850 X2 will support 512MB to 1GB GDDR3 or 1.8GHz DDR memory and will be positioned as a competitor to Nvidia's GeForce 8800GTS, the sources noted.
