nVidia announced last week that it was going to slash prices
on it's most popular card, the GeForce 6800. It's been done, and now the “perfect-fit” of the high-end barrel is now an incredible $100 cheaper. This puts a lot of pressure on ATI to lower their prices as well, something that is good for all of us.
This puts the current lineup at $299 for a GeForce 6800 Ultra (from $399) and $199 for the 6800 GT. Not bad at all for a card that is right on par or sometimes surpasses the X800 series.
