AMD's HD 6800 series gets listed

Written by Slobodan Simic

HD 6850 at €189, HD 6870 at €255

Thanks to early listings of HD 6850 we can see initial pricing and confirm the clocks that were already leaked a while back. The listing, which was noticed by the guys from Dinoxpc.com, comes from Dutch based e-tailer and shows Sapphire's HD 6850 and HD 6870 cards.

The HD 6850 works at 725MHz for the GPU, comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4000MHz and is paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The picture is unfortunately unavailable but we doubt that it will be any different than earlier pixellized cards, and partners will probably show their own versions at a later date. This one is priced at €189, which should rougly translate to US$199.99.

HD 6870 is listed at €255 and we honestly hope that US pricing upon launch will be set at $249.99 but bear in mind that these are early listings and that pricing might end up even lower. 

You can check out the original post here and you can find the cards listed here and here. And yes, we stashed a screenshot just in case AMD decides to give a nice phone call to either Sapphire or the mentioned e-tailer.
