Radeon HD price cut?

In publicizing its new Radeon HD 2400 and 2600 video cards, announced as shipping earlier this month, AMD has apparently exposed lower prices. Whereas the 2400 series was previously intended to debut at a base of about $99, new figures suggest a range of $50 to $85; the 2600 cards, meanwhile, should cost no more than $149, rather than the former $199 limit.

No reason for the price change has been given, but competition from Nvidia may be the most likely incentive. The company recently released the GeForce 8400 GS, a comparable low-end card that costs just $69. In the mid-range, the 8500 GT is $89, and the 8600 GT is $150.
