Hardware.info managed to find Radeon's HD 5870 at an European e-tail shop Salland.eu for €319. Although, the price for the HD 5870 1GB card was set at US $399, the European price was never mentioned.
The card that will be at Salland.eu is from a partner, and the pictures show a reference card with 1GB of memory, but we are quite sure that some partners might at least place a sticker over the fan. The model number is 21161-00-50R and we believe that the price might be even lower once other retail/e-tail shops start listing it.
The link is here, and if, or to be precise when, Salland.eu decide to pull the listing off you can check out the picture below. AMD doesn't not allow any mention of the card before September 23rd, but not everyone obeys.
