NVIDIA Kills the GTX 780 Ti, GTX 780, GTX 770, Cuts GTX 760 Pricing

Following the launch of its GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards, NVIDIA announced discontinuation of three of its top-selling high-end graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the GeForce GTX 780, and the GeForce GTX 770. The $549 GeForce GTX 980 cannibalizes the GTX 780 Ti and GTX 780; and is cheaper to make, with 2 billion fewer transistors, four fewer memory chips, and a lighter VRM; while the GTX 970 targets several key sub-$350 products, blasting the GTX 770 to irrelevance. NVIDIA also tweaked pricing of its GeForce GTX 760 performance-segment graphics card, which now starts at $219. The company is expected to launch its replacement, the GeForce GTX 960, some time in October, 2014.

Msrp should be around 260-280 us dollar after converted from chinese currency from some leak i've heard but you should really wait till october for it's performance review since no one knows it's exact performance right now.

Yup, I have a GTX 760 SC and am thinking I'll probably get a GTX 970 after MSI or EVGA gets their hands on it. I still game at 1080p (and plan to continue to for a long while) so it should be plenty.

I wish people would make up their minds on the 980. I hear its not that much better than the 780(Ti) and now this article is saying it "cannibalizes" them which means it blows the previous gen out of the water. So which is it?

By cannibalize, it means it's just performs better and is a better performance for the dollar, and has occupied, or "eaten" the 780 Ti's former glory place. No reason to have it around anymore.

In this instance cannibalizes means "eats up" the same market segment, as in the performance is close enough that the cards would be competing with each other in the same market segment.

I'll suffer with my extra 2 billion transistors, 780Ti is still one great card. Good luck Maxwell.
