In an unanticipated move, Nvidia Corp suggested the price of its graphics cards following the introduction of its GeForce GTX 980 Ti at its onset Monday. Sadly, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti will likely be significantly more pricey in Europe than in the U.S.
Nvidia are going to sell GeForce GTX 980 Ti for $649 in the U.S, not $799 as revealed previous week citing an online store. Furthermore, the company is going to lower the cost of the GeForce GTX 980 to $499 from $549. The price of the GeForce GTX 970 will stay at $329, while the GeForce GTX 960 will keep its suggested retail price at $199.
Although the MSRP of each GeForce GTX 980 Ti and GeForce GTX 980 appears to be really competitive in the U.S, the same can not be said about the price ranges in Europe. The official manufacturer’s recommended about the retail price of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 980 Ti for the U .K is £549 having value added tax (VAT), that is $752. The MSRP of the GeForce GTX 980 Ti for Eurozone is €739 – €749 ( $824 to $835), based on the country, which is significantly higher in comparison to the price in the U.S.
The real cause why Nvidia chose to set the cost of its new GeForce GTX 980 Ti so high in Europe is totally unclear. The price of Nvidia’s single-chip flagship – GeForce GTX Titan X – has been decreasing and gamers with limitless budgets will prefer to obtain the top-of-the-range solution although it is more expensive.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti is based upon the GM200 graphics processing unit with 2816 stream processors, 176 texture mapping units, 96 raster operations pipelines and 384-bit memory bus. The new graphics cards bear 6GB of GDDR5 memory operating at 7GHz.
