[FUD] Geforce 9800 GTX+ to sell for $229 (GTX $199) (4870 $230) (4850 $190)

Not only that Geforce 9800GTX+ is powered by 55nm G92 chip, it will also come at an incredibly low prices. As Radeon HD 4850 comes dangerously close to Geforce 9800 GTX 65nm-based performance, Nvidia has divided to launch a new chip / card. Radeon HD 4850 has suggested e-tail price of $199 in the U.S. and close to €150 in Euroland with VAT.

Geforce 9800GTX+ GPU works at 738MHz and has significantly faster Shaders at 1836 with up to 15 percent of performance boost compared to Geforce 9800GTX. At the same time, 9800 GTX+ will launch at amazing $229 suggested e-tail price and should be available by July 15th.

At the same time, Nvidia plans to drop the Geforce 9800 GTX price all the way to $199 to make it more attractive. The question that remains is how Nvidia plans to finance such a move as there is still a load of 9800GTX 65nm cards in the channel, and especially after last week we don’t think many are considering to buy one.

I've look at some benchmarks, against the 4870, and they seem extremely close. I was going to get a 4870, but I think I might change my mind... What are your opinions?

Edit: It depends what kind of brands make the 4870. The cheapest 4870 I could find was $230 by Asus. I'm not quite sure about that company, like I have no pas purchases from them. But they could release fixes later on that improve the performance?

Edit2: Here's the American company that's selling for $190:

It's a 4850, though.

you can already get a 9800GTX for $199 on newegg...

The only way the $30 price difference would be worth it is if the + OC's better. Which may be the case because of the die shrink...

only time will tell!!
good enough

$230 is a good price for it, but if the 4850 drops to like $179 and lower then not a good buy

Here you go: http://www.mix-computer.de/html/prod...l?artNo=JBXVU1
Price conversion: €147.31 --> $230.01

Also, http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=GX-170-AS
(£136.99 --> $270.56. With VAT, it's more.)

Also... I found some American company that had it, selling around for under or around $200. (Sold out, now.) I don't have the URL at the moment.

Edit: More prices: http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?op...=8019&Itemid=1 (£136.99 --> $271)

You can find a 4850 for $150 at some places. My friend got one for $140 at bestbuy with a rebate.
