Well it seems like the only good thing to come out of all this bad Nvidia publicity is that the prices for Geforce FX 5900 Ultra video cards is slowly but surely going down. You can now get a 5900 Ultra for about $415. Thats at least a $50 drop in price in the last 2 weeks. Hopely retailers will continue this trend.

As posted by Ante P (Nordic Hardware) at B3D on Sun. :


"Just spoke to nVidia Europe today at a small comp show here in Sweden.
The representative there spoke about the 5950 Ultra.
He said late october launch, november availability.

Sounds pretty late to me compared to their competitors.

The good thing about the board is that it'll be introduced at 299 USD compared to the 5800 Ultra and then 5900 Ultra which were both introduced at 399 USD IIRC(?)

Though like other videocards this fall/winter it's a very incremental speed bump, no more no less. At least that's the impression he gave me."


I read a rumour posted on NFI that said they were doing some last minute changes to NV38, none of which were specified. This rumour has since been removed from NFI.

Interesting to say the least about the price drop. Thats quite a drop for thier latest revision.
