The Inquirer writes the G71 GPU is having great yields in TSMC's fabs, allowing NVIDIA to drop prices of its products.
This also helps the GeForce 7950GX2, which will be launched later this month:
Now, we learn that a 1GB GDDR-3, two-G71-GPU-powered product will be available at least from one manufacturer at amazingly low $600, or Euros, in the Eurozone. We expect the UK price to end up in between 399 or 449 squids.
The only problem which comes to my mind is that shelling out $600 for a DX9 GPU in a year in which at least one manufacturer will launch a DirectX 10 capable product... may not be the smartest thing if you're gunning for the absolute performance. Even if it is double-barrelled.
