ATI Radeon HD 5850 to launch early October?
A little bird has revealed that the lesser HD 5850 will launch 'very early October' so it looks like we won't have to wait long. We should clarify that the pictures used in this article don't necessarily reflect our source, the images are merely for illustrative purposes.

Judging by the pre-order prices, the HD 5850 looks to be around 200-220 when it does finally launch, and the specs don't look so dissimilar to those of the HD 5870. The lesser GPU may 'only' 1,440 stream processors (rather than the 1,600 of the HD 5870) and operate at 725MHz rather than 850MHz, but it still connects via a 256-bit memory interface to 1GB of GDDR5 memory.

If the Asus voltage tweak version of the HD 5850 is priced also near the €200 mark, it will be quite a success :)
