No one is sure as of right now. There have been rumors that it will come out during summer, after summer, soon, lol. As for price, there are currently rumors floating around that it will be ~$300-320.

Honestly, this generation's pricing is so messed up thanks to amd gouging consumers while NVIDIA didn't have any new cards out. Prices started out high and are going to take a long time to come back down, especially with demand so high that NVIDIA can't even get enough supply to market.

As long as there isn't enough supply, prices will remain higher than usual.

Honest question, why are you excited? May as well just buy a GTX580 lol.

Before 680 is released, people are excited for it.

Once 680 is released, people are excited for 670.

Once 670 is released people are excited for the 660 ti... once it gets to this point the boost in performance is not that much higher above a 580. Stupid.

I wish i was living in USA, GTX 580 cost over 400€ in our country 400 € = 516.96 U.S. dollars
Now lets take a look at newegg GTX 580

360$ - 360 U.S. dollars = 278.551532 Euros

Because a 580 is old, worse architecture, eats a tons more watts, the driver software will stay updated longer for the 6xx series. You know for like every damn reason people to continue to buy new generation PC hardware. Someone woke up and had herp derp and milk for breakfast.
