It seems like MSI has some cheaper Kepler based NVIDIA graphics cards coming soon if this photo from Malaysian retailer Cycom turns out to be legitimate. Spotted by Lowyat user Chapree, the photo appears to be an MSI GTX 670 graphics card. Further, the card appeared on the company’s website at a price of 1399 Malaysian ringgits which translates to just under $462 USD.

Interestingly, the box contains a typo for Displayport in the form of “DispalyPort.” While that may indicate a fake card, it doesn’t totally rule it out either. The NVIDIA GTX 680 is the only available Kepler card (if you can find one to buy that is!), and many users are clamoring for some cheaper options. Here’s hoping they are coming sooner rather than later!

So 450$ msrp? I wonder if it will be competitive with the 7950 which is sitting at 400$ now.

I honestly haven't heard anything official on MSRP but that's what it's looking like.

quite possible, judging how nVidia loves to rebadge old GPUs.

thankfully, rumors are suggesting otherwise! It is looking like a GTX 680 Kepler architecture based card with a few things scaled down. (I really #$()#*@ hate when they rebadge older cards to newer ones, esp on the mobile side of things where shit really doesn't line up and it requires a lot of research to make sure you're getting what you think you are, both AMD and NV are guilty of that tbh).

what we need is for the products to get out and for price drops. both companies are still competing with their own last gen products.
