ZOTAC GeForce GTX 680 Listed for Pre-Order

Here comes one of the first online-store listings of the GeForce GTX 680. Branded by ZOTAC, this GTX 680 is listed on Dutch online-store ComCom.nl, for 426.20€ excluding taxes, and 507.18€ including it. The store is accepting orders, stating that it will begin shipping in 2-5 weeks. There's practically no quantity limit, so those picking four cards for 4-way SLI, can step right up. The ComCom listing doesn't reveal much about the card, except its clock speeds of 1006 MHz (core), 6008 MHz (memory effective), 2 GB memory amount, and display connectivity that includes two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. "In winkelwagentje" is Dutch for "Add to cart". Find the listing here.

Personally I think Nvidia should've just went ahead with their original plan and released this GK104 as the 660, but no, they noticed it performed on par with the 7970 so they decided to rename it 680 and price it accordingly. Sad really, that would've really shook AMD off their current early release throne and caused one hell of a price war.

Dunno about anyone else but I like seeing the companies topple each other over and over. :)
I'm pretty sure that both Nvidia and AMD discuss these things with each other.:ohwell:

Let's hope not. Price fixing tends to be frowned upon by the DOJ.

You realize that your DOJ is useless as both AMD and Nvidia are global companies and US is just another market, not even the biggest for profits.

It's also frowned upon by the ITC, that doesn't mean it doesn't happen though.

The DOJ here is useless? That's ripe. Look at what they were able to pull off on Megaupload, and Megaupload isn't even based in the US like both AMD and Nvidia are. Another example it the DOJ prosecution of non-US based companies in the LCD price fixing suits.

The US DOJ has very far reaching capabilities whether we like it or not.
