GTX295 deactivated on Newegg

Why is it deactivated? Only the BFG water cooling version is available. Is this just a stock problem or something else?

  1. I don't know, but my BFG GTX 295 which I bought from newegg is toast. Not happy.
  2. I haven't been able to find them on another site I regularly order from either. Actually, I'm noticing that the 285's are having stock issues as well.

    I wonder what the deal is?
  3. Me senses a scandal!

    Say it is not so!

    My heart doth yearn for the truth, but alas the silicon leaves us in denial!

    Folly!
  4. the rumors stated a while back that this card was very limited, would this come as a surprise if this were the case?

    If it was just a shot across the bow to claim a short term "fastest card out" moniker?
  5. It would kind of make sense since all of the consumer whores who would buy a GTX 295 and small market who actually benefited from the card's existence likely have purchased it already and the GTX 295 costs nVidia so much to produce to begin with when compared to the price. I am still a bit surprised, though the 4870 X2 is starting to get stock back so it may just be temporary.
  6. Or they saw the downturn in the global economy, cut production a little too much, ran out, and will therefore go make some more.
  7. Well, the Asus is back with a limit of 10 per customer.
  8. Can't imagine anyone paying $750 for a single card.
  9. well that was what some cards cost back in the days.

    how much does it cost for them to make the 295?

    sigh, what's the point of making something that does not return profit?
  11. Probably deactivated due to lack of stock and they do not know when more is coming.

    I saw Newegg deactivate the Planar PX2611w a couple of times due to lack of stock.

    Coming from a Marketing Major : ) It was to get the "most powerful graphics card crown". It gets Nvidia attention and a lot of coverage from sites like this one. People will read that the gtx 295 is the most powerful card and think Nvidia is "better" than ATI. They want to position its product as the best on the market. Nvidia receives a lot of publicity because of this. Publicity is important, because it comes from a 3rd party source. People trust what 3rd party sources say. This site is a 3rd party source. Nvidia and ATI are in a highly competitive industry strongly influenced by technology. It is important to have the best flagship card.
  13. Have we forgot theres going to be no more sandwiches? The new model should be coming soon
  14. i think the reason you cant find to many 295's is because they probably stopped making them to give place to the new single pcb versions, and that way get rid of all the "old" 295's...
  15. it´s called economic calculation of risks, which probably in GTX 295 wasn’t managed properly. This card is top-end product, costly and Nvidia, hit by the economic crisis, experienced significant downfall in sales in q3 and q4 2008, absolutely same as ATI. Nvidia partners/manufacturers were cautious and did not start mass production of this card (high price tag) but sales numbers have been much better than expected and in US, CAN and Western Europe is still kind of dropout. Germany was completely out of stock in February and March and now you can mostly get Gainward because there is a factory in south Germany. Situation is much better in UK with 3 producers (…I think). US market is having its GPUs (Nvidia/ATI) imported from China/Taiwan...

    Moreover it’s great GPU….I can confirm it because I have one.
