As we noted earlier this week, AMD has cut prices for both 512MB and 1GB variants of its flagship single-GPU graphics card—the Radeon HD 4870. We've found four of these puppies selling at (or technically below) their new suggested prices and brought them to you here.
Starting with the cheapest two, Newegg sells a PowerColor Radeon HD 4870 512MB for $200 and an HIS version of the same card for $200 with free shipping. Both models also come with $10 mail-in rebates, and the e-tailer offers a $20 combo discount with OCZ RAM for the HIS card. The PowerColor variant is "factory overclocked," though.
If you have a little more cash kicking around, Newegg also has PowerColor and HIS variants of the speedier Radeon HD 4870 1GB selling for $240. In this case, the PowerColor card clearly looks like the better choice, because it comes with free shipping, a meatier $20 MIR, and higher-than-normal clock speeds.
To see how these cards perform against each other (and the competition), make sure to check out our review of the Radeon HD 4870 1GB and GeForce GTX 260 reloaded.
