Ladies & gentlemen, the price wars are about to be in full swing! In trying to get ahead of AMD in the news cycle, NVIDIA has decided to cut prices on its lower tier GPUs.
- GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 1GB: $129 (down from $139)
- GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB: $149 (down from $169)
- GeForce GTX 660: $179 (down from $199)
So far they have chosen to maintain current pricing on the GTX 760 & GTX 770, both starting at $249 & $399, respectively, for reference models. This pricing should be live effective today on the big etailers (Newegg, TigerDirect & NCIX).
Now it’s AMD’s turn. They have already announced pricing of their soon-to-come R7 260X ($139), R9 270X ($199) & R9 280X ($299) cards. Rumor has it they’re supposed to launch this week, so we’ll see what they bring to the table. Price wars are always good for consumers, so let’s hope they keep it up!
