    We already know that big Navi is expected early next year. It will fill in that 5800 spot. Small Navi comes in 1-2 months. Reply

    Why not round these multi-hundred dollar prices? Show $499 as $500 etc. What value are you bringing to the reader by going along with the obfuscation? You should be simplifying where possible, to help rather than hinder comparisons. We don't expect 0.25% precision in frame rates, watts, or temperatures, and it doesn't help to see it in prices.

    Because they are reporting MSRP set by the manufacturer, and the manufacturer sets prices ending in 99. Reply

    Um... yes, that is what Anandtech is doing. Obviously. But - unlike a retail outlet - they don't have to, and they can serve us better by *not* doing it. That was the entire point of my post. Reply

    Especially in the comparison tables. Reply

    So that's actually a really good question, and it's something I've been mulling around as well.

    The issue on my end essentially comes down to accuracy versus usefulness. Round numbers are far more useful. But I also don't want to post inaccurate numbers, especially in a specification table. The card is $699, not $700. Which is totally a pricing trick meant to fool buyers; but at the end of the day it's still the price.

    So let me flip things around here. You guys tell me: would you be okay if I listed a rounded price, even if it's not accurate?

    How about in the specs/pricing charts show the accurate price, but when referring to price in the body of the article, go with the useful number? Reply

    Please round! Reply

    Yes. Please do round. It takes effort for my eyes to recognize the 99 suffix and bump the leading digit in my head. Here in northern europe, it's almost impossible to get anything at the MSRP so the 99 number doesn't help me anyways. Reply
