Cheap ultra-high end Radeons are upon us

For those of you who can't wait until the Radeon X1950 to debut on the 23rd, ATI has already started to cut pricing on the ASICs for the Radeon X1900 series cards: Radeon X1900 CrossFire, X1900XTX, X1900XT and X1900GT.  Essentially, all of the ATI cards have shifted down a price tier, leaving the top $500 price tag open for the Radeon X1950. 

The pricing change began to affect some merchants early this week, with the majority of the merchants following suit now.  Here are a few of the average price changes over the last few days:
Although the price reduction has mostly affected built-by-ATI cards, Sapphire and PowerColor are also starting to see some movement on the new pricing.  Expect to see the rest of the industry follow shortly, and definitely expect to see all pricing adjusted before August 23th.  ATI distributors claim there will be some availability of Radeon X1950 on the launch day.

The Radeon X1950 is ATI's first GDDR4 graphics card.  The card is expected to fill in the pricing tier of the older Radeon X1900s. 

Update 08/09/2006:
We originally published the release date for Radeon X1950XTX was August 27.  This was a typo and the correct date is in fact August 23.
