ATI Radeon HD 4890 Launches April 6

Drops prices on Radeon 4800's in preparation

| Video Cards News | Posted: Mar 3, 2009 2:31 am

With NVIDIA getting ready to launch the GTS 250, ATI is slashing prices on its HD

 

4870 and HD 4850 cards. The price cuts will drop the 4870 down to $149 and the 4850 will go down to $129. If the price cuts hit later in the week, this should really give NVIDIA a run for its money.

 

ATI Radeon HD 4890 Launches April 6

 

ATI's dual GPU offerings, the HD4850 X2 and HD4870 X2, don't seem to be getting the price cut at all and the HD 4830 will also stay the same price. The HD 4830 will soon be replaced by the upcomming RV740, which is also expected to launch along side the RV790 chip.

 

More importantly is that this adds some evidence to earlier rumors on the Radeon HD 4890 launch date of April 6.

 

If everything holds true, the next month or so will prove very interesting for everyone in the video card market. Both desktop and mobile users are getting new chips and with lots of new numbers flying around, the fight for title of king will surely be a heated one.
