Shops cutting Radeon HD 5800 prices

Posted on Wednesday, July 14 2010 @ 21:14:17 CEST by

The launch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 delivers a great value gaming card to consumers, and as an added bonus it's also spurring retailers to lower prices of Radeon HD 5800 series cards, making it a double win for the consumer.
For example, HD 5830 prices on Newegg appear to be going down and several cards are listed at $199. This is not a major cut, just $10 to $20, but it doesn’t have to be, as Nvidia’s GTX 768MB cards are selling for $199. However, the HD 5830 ships with 1GB of memory and it features a 256-bit bus, so it has a bit of an advantage over Nvidia’s 192-bit card. EU prices appear to be following suit, but bear in mind that some EU retailers were offering HD 5830 for less than €199 more than a month ago.

The situation is somewhat more blurry when it comes to the HD 5850. A British e-tailer is apparently shipping them at €239, but most prices on the mainland remain unchanged. Amazon.de is listing HD 5850 cards at €243, but they are still not available at the list price. Stateside there are no major changes, but there were some slight drops and the HD 5850 can be yours for $299.
