KitGuru claims NVIDIA has lowered the launch price of the GeForce GTX 560 from $299 to $279:
Graphics is a competitive business. Tell us something we don’t know. Pricing is important anyway, but even more so around a launch. Fine-tuning the price is important most of the time. Around the launch of a new product, it is crucial. nVidia is aiming to sit the GTX560 on a very thin fence. Slip either way and profits or unit sales will plummet. KitGuru has spent all morning with its ear to the ground, this is what we heard.
When KitGuru’s bored, we sometimes monitor our web traffic – you know – flip a few IPs and see where they come from. It’s always fun to run a story on, say, the price of the GTX 560 being too high at $299 – then seeing a load of IP activity in the Santa Clara area – followed by nVidia settling on $279 as the final street price.
