Retailers apparently cutting HD 5800 prices
It appears that some retailers and/or AMD AIBs are preparing to cut HD 5800 prices in order to maintain their lead over Nvidia and fend off the GTX 460. Bear in mind that there is still no official confirmation on any price cuts and we are merely monitoring some early listings in the US and EU.
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.
