AMD Radeon HD 6850 and 6870 hard to get at MSRP

Posted on Friday, November 12 2010 @ 18:11:41 CET by

The Tech Report checked the retail availability of AMD's Radeon HD 6850 and Radeon HD 6870 and discovered that almost no cards are sold at AMD's official launch price. Median prices for both cards are about $20 over AMD's suggested pricing.
Yikes! Radeon HD 6850 availability looks somewhat spotty, and we only found a single card in stock at the official launch price. Among all of the models we tracked down in the U.S., the median asking price is $199.99. Amazon charges as much as $224 for one model, although that one's out of stock.

Next up, the Radeon HD 6870, which has a $239 suggested e-tail price.. The availability picture looks much better here, but again, median prices are a solid 20 bucks over AMD's suggested pricing. One of the 6870s listed at Newegg costs an eye-popping $299.99. That card does have higher-than-normal clock speeds and double-lifetime warranty coverage, but I don't know if those perks are really worth a $60 premium.
