NVIDIA has just cut their budget GPU prices according to Digitimes today perhaps an indication of their upcoming new GPU launch this month. Hopefully we'll see the same kind of price reductions on the 6800 series of cards soon too.
Nvidia recently lowered the price of its GeForce 6200 with TurboCache by US$15, according to sources at Taiwan graphics-card makers. In addition, the company cut the price on its GeForce 6600 series US$5 and the prices for all parts from its GeForce 6200, GeForce FX5200 and GeForce MX4000 series were reduced US$1-2, indicated the sources.
The price cuts are aimed to drive market demand during the traditional off-season, as Taiwan-based graphics card makers are reporting sequential drops in their May shipments, sources at graphics-card makers commented.
