Top-End Nvidia GeForce GTX 280, 260 Graphics Cards Get Huge Price Cut

Illustration for article titled Top-End Nvidia GeForce GTX 280, 260 Graphics Cards Get Huge Price Cut

Nvidia's top end GeForce GTX 260 and 280 graphics cards-whose power borders on sorcery-launched for $399 and $650, respectively, less than a month ago. But pressure from ATI has driven Nvidia to already cut the price, hard. The GTX 280 is now only $399, while the GTX 260 is $299, the same price as ATI's HD 4870. Good to see ATI back in the fight. Anyone already buy this and feel hosed though? Competition is a lovely thing. [CNET]

AMD might need another generation or so to get back in the game, but at least now they can say their acquisition of ATI was a good idea. ATI really hasn't made a superior product since the the 9700/9800 days, but now I can definitely see buying ATI if you top notch graphics. AMD... pleeease make another hit like your opteron 165/170. Those were server class chips at a consumer pricepoint, and they absolutely crushed anything at that pricepoint at the time. My opteron is still going just fine and able to keep up with any game I can throw at it (with my 8800GT's help).
