NVIDIA GeForce GTX not as costly as believed?

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 480 graphics hardware will not be as costly as initially expected, according to a Monday Fudzilla rumor. The company is rumored to price the card at 450 euros, which should also mean a roughly $450 price in the US; early estimates and indications had pricing set at closer to $680.

The 480 would be followed in the future by a dual-chip card sometime in the next few months. Prices for the single-chip GeForce could change if shortages make demand exceed supply.

NVIDIA's Fermi architecture is said to improve overall performance while having specifically added support for general-purpose computing standards like OpenCL and PhysX, along with DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3.2 visual effects. They should also have more shader cores than current GTX275 and GTX285s.
