Dual HD 4850’s set to swallow GTX 280?
It’s also worth noting that AMD’s HD 4870 and Nvidia’s GTX 260 are eventually going to be evenly priced.
We also know that AMD is aware that the RV770 as a single core is not enough to match the GT200 core from NVIDIA. Not surprisingly, AMD is going to play its trump of price/performance, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no raw performance to play with.
RV670 and the Radeon HD 3800 series offered a decent price/performance ratio, but it was rather weak compared to NVIDIA’s best cards. RV770 is a mainstream chip, but unlike RV670, RV770 is going to play in the upper mainstream and performance segments and is a much more worthy opponent to NVIDIA’s high-end GPUs.
