    While reading a review of the 3GB MSI GTX 580 Lightning i found this line in the conclusion:

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/graphics/display/msi-n580-gtx-lightning-xtreme_6.html#sect4

    Is there any concrete news to support such an 'out there' claim? I didn't think there were any high end green GPU's out till later next year, so why a price drop?

    Like i say, it is a rumour but it is from another website.

    Maybe sales are down. Then again, too many rumors don't come true.

    BTW, Lightning XE FTW. eVGA can choke on a donkey with the garbage they're shoving off... what was it again last time, erm, a GTX 585? lol...

    It wouldn't surprise me if prices are gonna drop. Perhaps with the weak economy sales are dropping? Also, the price of technology tends to drop over time anyway and the GTX 580 is a year old now, so the possibility isn't that much of a stretch.

    With a bit more concrete evidence, this sounds like the basis of a hot news story... :D

    Excellent - you've made me spill my coffee with that one. :laugh:
