As a new line of graphics adapters from NVIDIA approaches, the old shall have to step aside, given that the price points they cover are pretty much the same.
By now, people should well know when and where NVIDIA will release its new batch of graphics adapters based on 28nm GPUs.
Just in case some missed it though, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti
, GTX 660
and GTX 650
will start shipping in August/September.
According to DonanimHaber
, the Santa Clara, California-based company will stop selling the GeForce 560 Ti, GTX 560, and GTX 550 Ti soon after.
The GeForce GTX 560 has a price of $149.99 at the moment, or 130 Euro in Europe (depending on model, manufacturer and retailer).
The GeForce GTX 560 Ti goes for $179.99 (after a rebate), or just as many Euro on the old continent.
As for the GTX 550 Ti, it can be found for $114.99 (with luck), which corresponds to 99.95 Euro in Europe.
The above equivalents are not exchange rate conversions, but the prices we discovered after checking online stores. There are many models that cost a lot more as well.
GTX 660/ 660 Ti and 650 Ti will use graphics processors based on the 28nm manufacturing process, such as it is.
Thus, the initial prices might be a bit higher than those of their counterparts, due to shortages of chips. TSMC may have increased its production output by 70%
in the second quarter, but the shortages won't truly go away until next year
We will provide the prices, clock speeds and everything else of import as soon as we stumble upon them. Perhaps there will even be some card demos and launches at the upcoming IFA 2012 trade show in Berlin, Germany.
AMD will be on site to talk about the Trinity APU so, naturally, NVIDIA won't be absent either. We'll be sure to bring you news straight from the event.
