GeForce GTX 460 and 470 Video Cards Getting Price Cuts

Postby Apoptosis » Thu Oct 21, 2010 9:56 am

We got a GeForce GTX 400 Series Pricing Update from NVIDIA today!! The e-mail was not under NDA, so I wanted to share it with you:

As you are likely writing about the upcoming Radeon 6800 series launch, we felt it was important that you’re up to date on the latest GeForce GTX 400 series pricing.

We’d like to inform you of new suggested etail pricing (SEP) for one of our most popular GPUs, the GeForce GTX 460 1GB. The new SEP for the GTX 460 1GB is $199.99. As always, the SEP is just a suggestion and you’ll likely find retail boards from our partners at multiple price points. We expect many standard boards to sell in the $180s-$190s, and OC boards to sell for $209+.

In addition to the GeForce GTX 460 1GB, we’d also like to mention new pricing on the GeForce GTX 470. The SEP of this GPU is now $259.99. The GeForce GTX 470 offers more tessellation engines than GTX 460, making it ready for the most demanding DX11 games on the market today, and just as important, the games of tomorrow.

These new SEPs will be reflected at the e-tail level in the next couple of days.

AMD is currently positioning the $179.99 Radeon 6850 against the GeForce GTX 460 768MB, which currently has a SEP of $169.99. However, GTX 460 768MB boards can be found for as low as $159.99 online. As a result, we feel that the stock GeForce GTX 460 1GB will ultimately be the Radeon 6850’s closest competitor.

Priced at $239.99, the Radeon 6870 will be competing with GeForce GTX 460 1GB OC boards running at speeds in excess of 800MHz graphics clock from our partners. And for a few dollars more, users may also consider the GeForce GTX 470.

AMD's response:

Now just as a FYI, as many of you have already been notified recently, Nvidia has been kind enough to provide a big price drop on the GeForce GTX 470 and a slightly smaller one on the GTX 460 1GB. These are temporary price drops and run from October 21st to November 14th as indicated in the below note sent by Nvidia to a retail customer. I’m sure you are aware of why Nvidia has timed this generous sale for right now.

NVIDIA's response to that:

Further to our email last night about the GeForce GTX 460 1GB/GTX 470 price adjustment, please rest assured that our price adjustments are in fact permanent. Any claims that our pricing update is temporary are patently false.

The price adjustments we made are not temporary, and are reflective of an upcoming change in our product lineup.

AMD's latest counter:

I suppose we will have to wait and see then. Just makes things interesting. This wasn’t an email we just made up We’ve seen temporary moves before to derail product launches before and then they crept up again a few weeks later.

Awh Snap. :snakeman:

Good stuff right there. The 6870 should be around 5850 performance if what I read is correct, so if Nvidia puts the GTX 470 close in price it would be competitive. Perhaps even better to go with dual 470s in SLI over dual 6870s since Xfire scaling seems to lag behind a bit.
