Default AMD Radeon HD 6850, 6870 prices on the rise

About two and a half weeks have passed since AMD unveiled its Radeon HD 6850 and 6870 graphics cards. The new GPUs are formidable performers, and their aggressive introductory pricing led Nvidia to enact some price cuts of its own, making cards of that caliber more affordable all around. Good news, right? Yes, at least in theory.

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.
