NVIDIA is positioning itself to launch its new Maxwell-based GPUs within the next couple of days, with two new products to be launched: the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970, but now we're hearing more details on pricing.




We should expect NVIDIA to start the price of its GeForce GTX 980 at $599, while the GTX 970 is rumored to be priced at a damn competitive price of just $399. At $399, NVIDIA could start cutting into its own GTX 780 pricing, which could be seriously good for consumers and gamers. We are expecting a slew of non-reference GTX 980 and GTX 970 cards to be made available, with varying cooling setups.


When it comes to the specifications of the new GeForce GTX 980, it will be a Maxwell-based card on the 28nm process, with 2,048 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 32 ROPs. The GTX 970 will feature 1,664 CUDA cores, and 104 TMUs. Both variants will feature a 256-bit memory bus with 4GB of GDDR5 RAM.
