US Radeon 5870s available from $379.99
News has arrived that some North American retailers have begun offering the Radeon HD5870 - as well as the Sapphire and Diamond cards - for general sale.

Sapphire are charging $379.99 for the SAPPHIRE 100281SR Radeon HD5870 (Cypress XT), specs: 1GB 256-bit GDDR5; PCI Express 2.0 x16; HDCP-Ready; CrossFire Supported Video. Meanwhile, Diamond is charging $384.99 for the DIAMOND 5870PE51G Radeon HD5870, with identical specs.

Tiggerdirect also has available the Diamond ATI Radeon HD5870, specs: 1GB GDDR5; PCIe; Dual Link; DVI. They are charging the slightly higher price of $394.99 to ship them to you today. If you can cough up $380 plus the shipping charge, and are in the States, then you can get your hands on an HD5870 in no time.

It's currently very difficult to obtain one of these cards in Europe at present, and those that can be found have been priced to the order of €380; €50 more than the RRP.

The US-retailed cards can be obtained from Newegg and TigerDirect.
