NVIDIA is planning to slash prices off of their flagship graphic cards which include the might GeForce GTX Titan, GeForce GTX 780 and the GeForce GTX 770. AMD recently announced their latest Radeon R9 and Radeon R7 graphic cards at competitive price ranges which is a main reason behind the price cut from the green team.
NVIDIA Plans Price Cuts For GeForce GTX Titan and GeForce 700 Series
The price cuts would pave way for NVIDIA to introduce a new GK110 based graphic card for the consumers though we cannot confirm its specifications but would have a follow up article to that in a short moment to talk about that and another high-end product from NVIDIA that wouldn’t be aimed towards the consumer market.
The price cuts for the GeForce GTX Titan would come six months after its launch in February 2013. The GeForce GTX Titan set new standards in the graphics industry in terms of performance and price. Being the first GK110 based GPU, the graphic card launched at a ultra-enthusiast price range of $999 US. Sweclockers mentions that three of the high-end GeForce 700 series graphic cards would get a price cut though our own sources reveals that the GeForce GTX Titan would get the most significant price cut. AMD recently made a brutal price cut on their Radeon HD 7990 slashing it from $999 US to $699 US (Although its still nothing compared to their FX-9590 CPU price cut which witnessed a price drop from $900+ to around $300 in less than four months of its launch. NVIDIA could go the same route though this means that we will be looking at a $50 price cut for the GeForce GTX 780 and $30-$50 for the GeForce GTX 770.
This leaves a huge gap hole between the GeForce GTX 770 and GeForce GTX 780 which may be filled later on with the rumored GeForce GTX 770 Ti which is going to feature a cut down GK110 core and a price of $449 to $499. While the battle of the Titan’s aka GeForce GTX Titan and Radeon R9 290X is just neck to neck, the main battle is within the sub-$299 price range market where AMD has rebranded their Tahiti core to such an extent that it would even be featured inside their $199 US Radeon R9 270X GPU. NVIDIA is preparing to tackle those with their sub-$199 US GeForce GTX 750 Ti which was unveiled and becnhmarked yesterday.
It would be nice to see the price wars that stir up during the next few months in the mid-range market since that’s the market that earns the most for each GPU maker. Till then, we will keep you updated with the latest bits regarding the upcoming graphic cards from NVIDIA and AMD.
