Default A Video Card War? . . .

Digitimes reports that AMD will cut the prices of its HD 3850 and 3870 by $20.
Given that the price of the GPU is probably around $75-100, this is a substantial cut.

nVidia may follow, indeed, prices on the 8800GT will go down once there's a decent supply of them, nVidia GPU cut or not.

While I certainly have nothing against a video card price war, why is AMD pulling the price trigger just two weeks after product introduction, especially since the price had been lowered just before launch?
