NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 770 could end up being the product we expected it to be specifications-wise, but could surprise with pricing, according to retailers in Tokyo's Akihabara electronics shopping district. On paper, the GTX 770 is virtually identical to the GeForce GTX 680, albeit with higher core clocks, and a record memory frequency. The chip features 1046 MHz core, 1085 MHz of GPU Boost, and a staggering 7.00 GHz (1750 MHz actual) memory.

I'm having a hard time believing the price estimates as that would leave a disparity in pricing between it and the GTX 780 in pricing...unless they are going to fill the ~$250 gap with a GTX 770 Ultra, 775...etc. Fk conventional naming.

Why is what is essentially an O/C'd GTX-680 @ $400 such a great deal? GTX-680's are already available for $420.00. There are already HD7970's available for $360 (AR) with 4 free games. :confused:

Isn't the GTX 770 supposed to be released tomorrow?

I don't think so. There probably isn't that great a performance gap between the 780 and 770 to warrant another SKU (not that that has hindered IHV's in the past), and the GTX 770 is still basically a juiced 680, and as such still faces competition from the HD 7970GE. A GTX 770 isn't suddenly going to beat out the 7970GE in AMD-centric titles such as Sleeping Dogs.

The GTX 780 on the other hand doesn't really have the same problem with a direct competitor (multi-GPU notwithstanding)- the distance between it and the 7970GE may not be that great in every title, but is probably far enough ahead overall to not invite such a close examination as the 770. There's also the "Hey, its almost a Titan" factor to consider- and that does seem to be a tangible motivator from what I've seen on forums.

31st May I think.

If you can get a 4GB version @ under 400 euros... than it might just be a very decent deal. Otherwise, F off nVidia.

So its a rebranded 680 with higher clock speeds? Most current 670s use a 6+6pin so I was hoping they could have kept the same power usage with a small performace bump or what was left to squeeze out of the kepler. Disappointing if it turns out to be true... :ohwell:

Well, of course it is, Maxwell is still way off as I expected it awhile back to be, and AMD is stalling... So nothing noteworthy around this period of time. That's why I was hoping it could at least be offered at a good price.

I mean, there are some rumors on ChipHell about some new desktop Radeon HD 8000 that just showed up... Those look pretty good...

Don't see how this is surprising.

It has to be priced similar-to-below 7970GE because of absolute performance and similar market (size/power requirements), something 680 could write off as an advantage versus the original 7970. They will be very similar though because of tdp/buffer allowance and playable resolutions...especially against voltage-limited 7970s...inefficiency at higher voltage (770) versus slight efficiency in shader/bw vs rops (7970) evening it all out. It seems 7970 was always meant to die around $400, so it sounds right they shoot for 400-450(4gb) now, ~350-400 later as the market progresses. More expensive than a 7950/hainan but more performance, competitive with 7970 to slightly cheaper.

It seems clear to me they are positioning themselves (because of >225w tdp) in a slim spot that allows them to attempt to use this highly-profitable little chip to attempt to not only compete in a higher market against 7970 at whatever measure so GK110 doesn't have to, but also give just enough oomf to surpass anything AMD could muster below 225w, be that 7950 or a future product which are/will be around $300.

I'm sure it will be nice, efficient and all that, but in the scheme of things it seems inevitably niche between more powerful or compact/efficient current/future radeons (or other current geforces) without a tangible advantage over.

IOW, 680 did it right (1080p/225w). Hainan will probably do it right. 780 did it right (>225/2560). Tahiti is an interesting 'just good-enough to justify not being built for under 225w' experiment (which would make more sense if xfire wasn't broken) with thoughtful salvage options. 770 is just a market necessity for a chip likely not efficient enough to compete against a similar chip (hainan) in the same <225w tdp, nor have the ipc/bw to compete with Tahiti over it given like voltage. Given margins though, and the power needed to make 4GB (and therefore sli) make sense while still giving 7970 a decent run, they probably made the right business decision. Still...it's odd.

Another rebrand from NV. Seeing as this is just a 680 with a decent OC and a sexier cooler, it'll be interesting to see how far the price of a 680 drops when this is released.

That isn't the cool bit, the pricing is the cherry here.

That's what I was getting at. No way they'll leave the 680 more expensive than the 770.

Get logical!
If you look at Newegg and see the number of SKU's (28 listed) and if you run their pricing that ranges before rebates from $420 up to $590 for a EVGA Classified 4GB. So throw out the low/high and the price averages out to $504! While of the 13 "with rebates" they average reduction a between a 4-8%. So on average the price just a couple of days before the release, the going price most often is $470'ish! :slap:

There's no way Nvidia will drop a better nicer Faux Titan in the mix for $400. Or, do you imagine there's only like 40 something?... GTX 680's in stock all-together today in Newegg's inventory!

The price is $500… luv it, or wait and get the last of the GTX680’s at say a 15% from their original MSRP in a couple of weeks.

Well this is a bummer. I was just about to put up my RMA received EVGA GTX 680 for sale for $420 shipped. Now it's barely going to be worth $400. Cards are coming out way to fast nowadays. Sheesh.

While I kind of understood the reason behind putting the midrange chip in a GTX680 and asking $500 I find it outrageous that the high-end chip which should have been used in the GTX780 and 770 (like the previous generations did) is now in a card that's called Titan and it's sold for $1000 and in a card that instead of being the 770 is called 780 and sold for $650 (I don't even ask myself why in hell it is $150 more expensive than the MSRP of the last three generations flagship).
So in this wonderful PC world which we are been told is crumbling these guys ask 4-500$ for midrange cards because this 770 is just that, nothing more than an overclocked 256 bit 2GB RAM GTX760 which should go for $250.

And all of this because AMD released their 7970 with conservative clocks way back in what, Dec 2011? and priced it on release at over $500.

If:

A) AMD had released a higher clocked 7970 with better release drivers the 680 would not have beaten it which means;
B) Nvidia would have sold a lower priced GTX 680 (which I think JSH would have despised the thought of) or;
B part 2) Nvidia would have released a very crippled GK100 and sold it at a high price anyway.

This all boils down to historical pricing and the piss poor fact is AMD caused an upset when thy released the 7970 at >$500 and the greedy engineering inept* Nvidia took full advantage of it.

*I say inept because they tend to get their shrinks done way after AMD and always tend to lop of cores to make it work. It takes a full year to get GK100 to market in the GK110 guise.

Pfft.

AMD can either control this situation or exacerbate it with the HD8xxx release.

I don't understand why people find this card exciting. It's no different than a slight price cut on the GTX 680.

I mean, price cuts are great and all, but I just find this one kinda "meh".
