Nvidia releases low-cost G80 series cards today

By Justin Mann on
Nvidia promised and Nvidia delivered. Today, Nvidia released three new DX10 parts, all tailored to be a more affordable G80 solution than the existing cards. The GeForce 8600 GTS, 8600 GT and 8500GT were made available today, ranging from $90 to $230, all with the DirectX 10 support enthusiasts so crave (only available in Vista currently!). In a world that is often plagued by paper releases, it's comforting to see a company sticking to their promised releases.

This is another blow towards AMD, who has yet to make any R600 units available, let alone mid-range cards that most people can afford. On top of that, Nvidia is planning yet another iteration of G80 in the coming months that will lower the prices further.
