GTX 470 available for €207 in DACH

Written by Fuad Abazovic
geforce

In Holland below €190
Nvidia is either intimidated of Radeon HD 6870 or it has plenty Geforce GTX 470 cards it wants to flash. It is probably a combination of two, but in last two days Asus GTX 470 has dropped in price from €238.32 to current €206.99 + shipping cost.

Slashing prices dramatically usually means that you have a new thing around the corner. €207 is the price for Germany whereas DACH stands for German, Austria and Switzerland market. Our Dutch colleagues have informed us that this drop is even more dramatic as the price went down all the way to €190 and you can check that one here.

Radeon HD 6870 is supposed to debut at €250 but AMD can adjust the price up to the last minute, especially considering the fact that this card cannot really compete with much faster Geforce GTX 470 at the given price. We expect the pricing on Radeon 6870 and 6850 cards to get final later today.

It's the end users who will win with this recent price drop. Of course GTX 470 will need more power and will end up hotter, but it still easily outperforms Radeon HD 6870 and of course the slower HD 6850.

Such a move seems to indicate Nvidia has something new to counter Radeon HD 6870, which could launch this season.

You can get more details and order one here or check the recent price development here.

"much faster Geforce GTX 470"

Much faster, really? Come on, Fuad…

Pretty huge drop, though. I smell good deals coming.

Jen-Hsun wet his pants when he saw the HD6800 results.

The 470 will be like 5-10% faster than 6870.
An 529mm2 chip manages to outperform an 255mm2 chip. How nice!
Also 470 consume 200-220 watt when 6870 will consume just 150-160.
Also 6870 will be far more efficient than 470 at idle. And will end up much more cheap than 250 euros (was 470 priced at 200 euros when it was launched?)

The 470 cannot compete with 6870. Naturally as 470 is an 529mm2 chip. If Nvidia can sell 470 at 200 and at the same time not losing money then amd can sell 6870 for less than 100 euros. But this is not the case (although it would be better for the consumers).

That's just awesome and Christmas is still a month away. By the time i'll have the money to buy new parts for my PC the market will be flooded with awesome cards in the mid range (price wise since the performance is truelly high end). I'm loving this trend.

"much faster Geforce GTX 470"

Oh is that So?! I'll keep that in mind when I read Anand's review tommorow.
if (Fuad.getStatement() == FALSE)
{
delete Fuad;
Fuad = NULL;
} //End threat

You can also try this:
if(mynamespace: :Form1::Fuad::getStat ement() == FALSE)
{
mynamespace::Fo rm1::~Fuad();
}
return 0;

Also do not forget to dealocate other memory resources used by Fuad().

Oh dear Fuad seems you got it badly wrong and the 6870 is faster than the gtx 470. :D
