Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD) and Nvidia on Thursday launched competing graphics cards that the companies claim offer the best performance for the price.

AMD introduced the ATI Radeon HD 4890 and Nvidia unveiled the GeForce GTX 275. Both cards sell for less than $260 and are aimed at PC gamers.
The AMD product has an 850-MHz core clock speed, a memory clock speed of 975 MHz, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory. The card has a maximum board power of 190 watts and consumes 60 watts during idle. The Radeon HD 4890 GPU is available through AMD partner products. Diamond Multimedia, for example, is selling on a card based on the AMD processor for $230, after a $20 mail-in rebate. [Comments...]
