Exactly, that's what i said... they want to capture more of the market.. = mo $$$ for them and decreasing power but still at a good margin and decreasing price over AMD = Increase in sales and profits. If they can produce a cheaper product, better and at a cheaper market price than the 7800s then common economic principles apply and they should sell more.
PS this quote comes from the latest GTX 670 review from Anandtech: "Like its predecessors, GTX 670 will fill in the obligatory role as a cheaper, slower, and less power-hungry version of NVIDIA’s leading video card
And the GTX 660 will be even further in the less is more direction.
PSS... i was planing on $300 for a 448 core classified ultra anyways so $300 for the 660 TI will not be a boo whoo moment for me I'm sure.
PSss... May 10th has come and went so jokes on me
guess OCUK was correct. bummer
