Default Tomorrow is a Radeon 3850 / 3870 day

Radeon 3870, or RV670XT, and Radeon 3850 aka RV670PRO, will be launched tomorrow. We can tell you that Revival and Gladiator cards will be out and that you will see the cards with two DVI's, DVI and native HDMI, and later on you will see these cards with DVI + DisplayPort. It's all possible.

The Radeon HD3850 512MB card will score some 20 30 percent lower than a Geforce 8800GT 512MB and as we said before it will end up slower.

I think this card is the comeback for AMDATI, good value, good production costs AND good supply (250k units promised against 40k 8800GT delivered)

still, promised != delivered either

will be interesting to see best value at €150, HD 3850 or 8800 GT, both with 256Mb
HD 3870 has no chance if its €200+ against 512Mb 8800 GT

Aye, it will be key to see if or how much ATI will undercut $160 256mb 8800GT cards, and they will have to undercut since 256 vs 256mb parts 8800GT still wins at $160.

that was an expected outcome, see my post above; the HD3850 vs 8800 GT 256Mb at €150 price point will be more interesting!

the HD3850 is like a car that can only do 80, no matter how much it costs it is too slow
