G80 was formerly a mysterious chip and now we know almost every single detail about it. Well, never mind that. Now it's everything to do with price, not performance, and we noticed that a Belgium based company has some listed for a "more reasonable" 669.
The firm wants that much money for the upcoming Nvidia PCIe GeForce 8800GTX 768MB PCI-Express TV-Out DVI.
We don't know who makes this card but I am sure Nvidia will force it down. As predicted, Nvidia did that here and the US prices are gone.
Again just for our safety we took a screenshot and we don't know why the Belgian chocolate people use the kangaroo for its logo.
It gets even better, because in Aussieland, the land of kangaroos and koalas, also listed the G80, Geforce 8800 GTX cards. The cheapest of them all is the Nvidia 8800GTS 640MB PCI-E x16 video card, 2x DVI, video out - no ETA yet, only Australian $737.00 or roughly American $565.00.
The second, the Nvidia 8800GTX 768mb PCI-E x16 video card, 2x DVI, video out - no ETA yet costs between $990.00 and $999.00 Australian - some $760 in American dollar. The most expensive one is the Asus Nvidia 8800GTX 768mb PCI-E x16 video card, 2x DVI, video out - no ETA yet listed for $1160 Australian, or around an astounding $892 in American dollar.
