Radeon 8500 falls in price
The selling price for the ATI Radeon 8500 is astonishing. Contrary to expectations, it is sold in the USA for only 299 dollars. In Germany, the ATI Radeon 8500 will probably also be sold at a lower price.
As ATI spokeswoman Nicole Dortans said, the price reductions are a general adjustment of prices to the market level in order to be competitive to stay. As planned, the ATI Radeon 8500 should be available in Germany at the end of October, at the same time as the new Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti 500 cards. Instead of DM 899.00 as planned, the ATI Radeon 8500 is to be sold for only DM 749.00.
