    IIRC That's a much higher introduction price than the 4870?

    AMD must be very confident on the speed of this thing...

    Or they're simply releasing it before the competition, rather than competing with an already existing product.

    It's about right for launch of a premium card at the head of the market.

    Looks like I am holding out for the 5850 then, I can't justify that.

    It's an exact translation of the advertised USD price.
    USD400 x FX + VAT = GBP 282.20.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.

    the price will be lower than £280 at retailers, one hint is that the official 5870 price is US$349 not $399 and also that retailers who set up pre-orders before NDA is lifted usually put inflated pruces on the product, normally 10 to 25%.

    Going to stop myself buying on launch day this time, Want to wait for the X2 , Why? Well I run 1900 x 1200 and want to have all details at max with silly AA and AF levels.
    Oh and most importantly, massive e-peen

    Still more interested to see what kind of performance a passively cooled 5xxx card can give, so roll on the 57xx series (hopefully, if not a 56xx).

    Plenty of suitably good videocards out there for a lot less than £320...

    I could justify £285 but I bet the UK price is higher

    I was dissappointed with my dual Xfire passively cooled 4850's, even with multi core supported games. They were obviously silent but my single card Geforce 285, which was cheaper than 2 4850's, is quiet and a hell of a lot more powerful.

    I would still be interested in the 5850 performance gains with the enhanced chip design and coupled with GDDR5.

    However, I think im gonna hang on til the 5890's.

    Aye - I'll be swapping my 4890 Vapor X for a 5890 (or a pair of them)

    That's €, not £. And there's a lot more even less suitable cards for more than £320.
