Nvidia drops GTX 590 pricing

Written by Slobodan Simic
nvidia

To launch at US $699/€649
We already heard a couple of rumours regarding the price of the upcoming Nvidia Geforce GTX 590 dual-GPU card that was originally planed to be launched at around €749 or so depending on the region, but we restrained ourselves due to the fact that we also heard that there might be some last minute adjustments to the price. It looks like our sources were spot on with that info as the new price, or to be precise, the real launch price will be set at US $699/€649 incl. VAT.

The price will, of course, depend on the region, retailer/e-tailer, as well as the partner, but Nvidia's price is set at €540 + VAT, which drops exactly somewhere around €649. This is of course a massive drop from the expected and earlier rumoured price. There are still no reliable leaked benchmarks and it is still left to be seen if the GTX 590 would end up faster than the competition.

Bear in mind that the Radeon HD 6990 can be picked up in Europe for as low as €550, but we'll leave our final judgement for tomorrow.
