Try to remember that, last week we covered a report that was “NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Specifications And Images Revealed”. Today we want to say you, NVIDIA has just fixed the retail price of their new graphic card GeForce GTX 680. The new retail price is $499 but it is not available at any online shope till now.
There is so much confusions because of the official “Recommended Retail Price” or RRP and European price is still unknown. It seems that the European price will be bit higher.
According to the fudzilla – Either Nvidia has seen the general opinion on the GTX 680 higher than expected price tag, or simply dropped the $549 price tag to see AMD’s reaction and force another round of price wars. Only Nvidia knows the back story and it is hard to confirm anything, but for now, partners have started hearing talk of a new $499 price tag.
At $499, the GTX 680 certainly sounds like a much better deal and we are sure that AMD will respond with a similar cut. Until today, AMD wasn’t worried about GTX 680 due to its $549 price tag and, unofficially, focused on factory overclocked HD 7970 that should end up on a par with the GTX 680.
