Default Nvidia prepares for price wars

Quote:
GTX 280, 9800GTX prices to drop

Nvidia
has already dropped the prices of GTX 280 and GTX 260 and it doesn’t plans to let ATI rest. ATI started this nasty game with RV670, Radeon 3870 and 3850 cards and Nvidia now wants to put a lot of pressure on soon to be launched Radeon HD 4870.

Radeon 4870 was supposed to launch at $329 but it will probably drop to $299 very fast and at the same time GTX 260 is going to drop to way under $399. (Revs approves of this price drop)

This is not the last of it as we believe that this card will rapidly drop to at least $349 very soon (and this one). With such pricing Nvidia will put a lot of pressure on Radeon HD 4870.

This is not all as 9800GTX will drop to way under $299 to put some pressure on the Radeon HD 4850 and we believe that Geforce 9800 GTX should very soon start selling for $249 and later drop even more.

I agree nekro I would love to have one, but until I need a better card than my 8 series nvidia won't get a sell. Hopefully they will drop below 6 bills.

I don't upgrade cause I can and am still running my x2 6400 because it is still a very fast processor. I think I will spend my money on a nice media server.

would be hilarious if 4780 would wipe the floor with GTX 280. buying gtx 280 now seems rather pointless not knowing what the other card will be like.

GTX 280 should cost no more then $450

I have yet to see a single GTX 280 price drop and I can also get a 9800GTX for right at $250 right now so whatever Nvidia.

For me it doesn't need to wipe the floor with it. If performance is close to GTX 260, the chance to put two x2 cards on an Intel mobo is more than enough to kiss nVidia bye bye
