Geforce GTX 295: New design is more expensive
Nvidia's new layout for the dual GPU Geforce GTX 295 is supposed to be cheaper in production, but currently the new graphics cards are more expensive than the dual PCB versions.
Although the new, single PCB layout of the Geforce GTX 295 is said to be much cheaper in production, the prices of the new graphics cards doesn't drop below those of the older variant.
Rather more it seems like the single PCB GTX 295 cost even more than the old layout. At least customers in Europe have to pay about 25 Euros more if they buy one of the dual GPU cards form Gigabyte, Gainward or Zotac. Time will have to tell if the prices will be adjusted in the next weeks or if the shops try to squeeze as much out of the new Geforce as possible.
Below you can see a list comparing the prices of the three mentioned manufacturers in Germany:
|Gigabyte||Geforce GTX 295||402 Euro|
|Geforce GTX 295 Single PCB||429 Euro|
|Zotac||Geforce GTX 295||389 Euro|
