Will Radeon HD 4870 turn up the heat on the GTX 280?
If AMD's HD 4870 can come to within 85-90% of the performance of the GTX 280, it may really force NVIDIA to drop the price on its flagship card. Who would buy a $649 card when they can get a card almost as good for less than half the price? NVIDIA has already announced a cheaper 9800 GTX and a $229 9800 GTX+ to compete with Radeon HD 4850. Let's hope the price comes down. I wouldn't mind a refund from Newegg!
