NVIDIA Drops Prices on GeForce 9800 GTX to $199


#1

Nvidia today urgently informed their partners about the corrections made to their last generation G92 based single-chip solutions line-up, because they were expecting the competition in the mainstream segment to get more aggressive. First of all, they reduced the recommended prices on their GeForce 9800 GTX solution that will now be available for $199.

A newer modification of this graphics card, GeForce 9800 GTX+, will be competing against the new Radeon HD 4850. According to the report on Tweaktown site, the new solution will have its chip frequency increased from 675/1688MHz to 738/1836MHz. As a result, GTX+ model should be about 10% faster than the regular GeForce 9800 GTX. GeForce 9800 GTX+ should supposedly be available in the market for something around $229 retail price.

Among the innovative features of the new GeForce 9800 GTX+ the manufacturer lists support of PhysX and Folding@Home as well as some other CUDA optimized applications, however, this advantage may be available to other Nvidia graphics cards, too. Of course, GeForce 9800 GTX+ will continue to support SLI and 3-Way SLI.

doesn't matter, the local sellers like galaxy etc will keep selling the product at inflatted prices.

local gamers will be paying the original price (when the card came out) for the next few yrs in pakistan.

agrees with abbas jin,,oh they are quick to INCREASE the price of the product if the dollar fluctuates,,,but reduce it, never,,,i have myself gone to Marsons (the people who control the intel processor prices in pakistan) and these guys are always calling people abroad and increasing prices,,,the new computer prices are sligthly more more inflated in lahore in karachi as well..

the only way the consumer can win is to find a juggar in one of the big dealors here and then they can find a lower price,,,for eg, this guy i know buys core 2duo processor e4500 for rs 6500, while the actual price is 7800,,,

its juggary world and you must be a juggary to save money
