ATI ships R580 for under $300

We've received word that Sapphire, GECUBE and PowerColor all have announced latest editions for the high end line of X1900 graphics cards.  The ATI Radeon X1900 GT is a single-slot video card that uses the ATI Radeon R580 core, with a stock clock speed of 575MHz, 256MB of DDR3 and a 1.2 GHz memory clock.

The card was not supposed to be made available until May 9, to coincide with E3, but several Best Buy stores mistakenly made the card available to consumers last week.  Even before being released publicly, the cost of the card has been slashed by several manufacturers.  The PowerColor X1900 GT will cost $299, with Sapphire and GECUBE within a buck or two.  Expect to see the cards on sale at the major online retailers this week, and at B&M stores immediately.

Good point, but unfortunately AGP Quadro doesn't have enough horsepower compared to x800 for driving one screen in DirectX at high FPS.

I would still prefer to have a new generation AGP card for the main screen, rather than the X800. The secondary (and third) display just needs high quality 2D. Not used in 3D.

Perversely the Quadro PCI makes a perfect secondary controller, except it cannot drive > 1600x1200.

I would still prefer a x1800 or x1900 on the main screen for, you know, after work-hours entertainment ;-)
