NVIDIA Accused Of Using Marketing Shills
Regardless of NV's marketing shills, if there is any truth to the $299 price tag then NVIDIA is in big trouble. This shows the new cards are not going to perform as once thought.
I say BS.
If NVIDIA can come out with a powerhouse card for $300 then I'll buy it.
However, I strongly suspect the typical $400-600 depending on the model.
If NVIDIA can command 580 prices, then they will.
Smart. But classless. Is Nvidia that desparate that they need to do this? Then again, there's some folks on the forums who I swear work for AMD (CPU's mainly) the way they talk.
Not the first time Nivdia tried stuff like this, always playing ketchup to Ati....
wtf are you talking about. the GK104 chip is suppose to replace the GTX560ti and be the GTX660 or 680 and they are targetting the 79xx series with there mid end chip. WIth its 768 cores i think itll be pretty good
That's what they say. It seems to me that this is all they have right now. Where's their "high-end" card then?
a 780 thats suppose to be on the GK112 with rumored 1024 cores 2nd or 3rd QTR 2012 and then the GK110 is suppose to be the dual GK104s.
So basicallly, they'll pobablly get around to it around the end of the year. In the meantime they have this card to crutch them along. Don't get me wrong, if it's around as good as a 7970/7950 at a greatly reduced cost, it's a win. I just hope they have other things coming out soon to go with it or they'll be bleeding money. There's much more to the video card market than users like TPU people.
I think thats what the GK106 is. the Low mid end stuff like the GTX550 etc
