GeForce 8600 Price Leaks
A complete launch strategy for NVIDIA's first mid-range GeForce 8-series cards has been leaked, say websites receiving their review units. The entire line will cost considerably less than the current 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS, selling at most for $229 with the 256MB GeForce 8600 GTS while starting at as little as $89 for the basic 128MB GeForce 8500 GT. There will also be less expensive, 400MHz GeForce 8300 GS and 450MHz GeForce 8400 GS cards available for larger system builders whose prices haven't revealed, the leak says.
All cards will be announced on April 17th and should be available almost immediately as stand-alone upgrades. Their use by system builders such as Apple and Dell hasn't been revealed and should vary in ship dates and price. [via DailyTech]
