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.

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.

I like people who pay that much for those cards because those people singlehandedly fund the R&D of next generation of cards for us :D

I gotta say, I'm still not believing anything until I see it all the way, but if this comes out at that price range then the 4870x2 really does beat it at about half the price, I will be :roll: and nvidia will be :cry:.

It could actually be worse if this turns out to be true:
In 3DMark06 reached the HD 4850, according to "Fudzilla" a score of 11,760, while the Nvidia card compared to 10,800 3DMarks came - two values that only by a factor of 1088 separately. At this point not tested 9800 GTX would probably come around 12,500 points.
Similarly, results in the colleagues of "ITOCP" emerged that the HD 4850 P5847 points in 3DMark Vantage has achieved. At the same system, a 9800 GTX P5816 points obtained. So far so good: It is interesting, however, that the X-mode, in 1920x1200 instead of 1280x1024 and there is also the default 4-times anti-aliasing and 16 times anisotropische filtering active, the score against a 9800 GTX with points instead X2609 X2104 points, 24 percent higher.

If this really does happen with a 4850, i would assume the same would be true for 4870 and 4870x2 and, if the 4870x2 really can beat the GTX 280 in ... say ... 1920x1200, with a bigger resolution and / or higher AA / AF, ... WOW ...

Yeah, I don't know, once again, I'll believe what I see when everything is out and running. Until then, I'm reserving judgement. But nvidia may need to answer these rumors soon if they can, the bad press is starting to build.

That was my sentiments for the last month. NV better hope this thing pwns the sky. It might be near $700 at the US release but even so, if it don't pwn all comers @ that price, I see NV's sandbagging world crashing down around them.

I think too many people are getting bent out of shape over ONE price that has been released by an unknown retailer. Still, they well be on the expensive side. I'd bet no more than $800, perhaps $599 on the low side.
