NVIDIA to axe GeForce GTX 260 216 price

Posted on Monday, November 17 2008 @ 19:09:03 CET by

Bit Tech reports NVIDIA has cut the price of its GeForce GTX 260 with 216 shaders:
Novatech is listing Zotac's stock-clocked GeForce GTX 260 216 part at just over £210 including VAT. Before today, the GeForce GTX 260 216 cards have started at around £230 (inc. VAT) which meant that Nvidia has struggled to compete with AMD's ATI Radeon HD 4870 1GB as it has been aggressively priced against the competition from Nvidia's two GeForce GTX 260 variants.

As I'm sure you know, there are two versions of the GeForce GTX 260 – one with 192 stream processors, and a newer variant with 216 shaders – and it's the latter that's supposed to compete with the 4870 1GB.

In addition to the price drop, the release of the Forceware 180 series drivers, which deliver some fairly nice performance improvements, it looks like the GeForce GTX 260 216 could be an attractive option moving forwards.
