NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 Available for Pre-order in Europe

A week ahead of its release date, NVIDIA's next generation flagman the GeForce GTX 280 1GB is already starting to appear on various European etailers. Both the French TDShop.fr and the German HW ELEKTRONIK are now offering the card for roughly 590 Euro ($912). I sincerely hope the price will drop after the cards are out.

Well that's out of my budget range...:)

It would be funny indeed if it were only 110% more powerful than ATi's 4870, yet 200% the price.
Funnier still in the rare event that the 4870 matches or beats it...

TBH - i don't think the price will come down until ATI launches the 4870x2.

I think nVidia is sandbagging the whole new launch - they're starting with their top performer for the time being, knowing that ATI's 4870x2 is still a ways away.

Meaning if you want the best performing card on the market out of both camps current next gens, you'll have to have a ton of disposable income, or be patient enough to wait until the 70x2 rolls out.

If the 4870x2 comes out and nVidia still tromps it, price will stay up; if the 70x2 is performing equal or better, nVidia will lower their prices to compete.


that price is insane, though :twitch:

I hope this doesn't end up raising the price of 4800 series. Two 4870's should be cheaper.

Oh please, for the time beeing the HD3870, for $200, can play any game at irreproachable quallity. It would probably do so for at least 1 year.

For that price does the card make toast, tea, make dinner, clean the house, solve global warming and reduce oil prices.

I think Nvidia messed up in our favor. When 2 9600GTs play practically any game at max for $250 what the heck is the other $650 for?

the other $650 is for "future-de-proofing"

because once you've paid that price, you won't want to upgrade your rig for a long while to come . . .

Unless your one of those guys who just buys the best because they can afford it then throw it out because a "better" one comes out.
