Nvidia Cutting Graphics Card Prices
If you're looking for a new graphics card, now might be the time to buy. Nvidia is reportedly considering lowering the cost of many of its GPUs (Graphic Processing Unit).
Many are speculating that this is in response to AMD's competition, targeting the release of AMD's Radeon R9 280x. The R9 series, announced two days ago by AMD, is targeted towards the gamers looking for "ultra resolution" and "hyper realism" and is intended to retail for $299.
Nvidia has offered price cuts for the GTX 660 and the GTX 650Ti Boost, as well as announcing the release of a GTX 760. Speculation is that the GTX 760 is targeted as direct competition to AMD's Radeon R9 280x.
New prices are as follows:
GeForce GTX 780: $649
GeForce GTX 770: $399
GeForce GTX 760: $249
GeForce GTX 660: $179
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB: $149
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 1GB: $129
So if you're in the market for a new graphics card, now is probably the time to buy. However, speculation is that Nvidia will again lower its prices in November of this year.
