Nvidia to Release GT 430 to Rain on AMD Launch?

Rumor has it that AMD will be launching its Radeon HD 6000 series AMD Technical Forum and Exhibition 2010 in Taiwan on October 19, but word is that it won't be the only new GPU on the block.

Digitimes reports that Nvidia also has a launch planned for that very same day. Nvidia is planning to launch the new entry-level GeForce GT 430, based on the GF108, on October 19. Along with that will also come a price drop of the GeForce GTX 460 768MB to go up against the new Radeon HD "Barts" mid-range product.

While the launch of a low-end GeForce GT 430 GPU won't do much to threaten the much faster Barts line, the lure of an even more competitively priced GF104 could drizzle a little bit on the AMD's parade.

    I seriously doubt either of those card are gonna rain on AMD's parade.
    What are we gonna hear next? Nvidia renaming half their current 4XX series to 5xx so they can trick people into thinking they having something "new" to compete against AMD's new offerings? It wouldnt surprise me one bit, I mean seriously, how many times was the 8800 renamed before they finally made something truly new?

    Quoted "How many times was the 8800 renamed?"

    I lost count, then I stopped buying Nvidia.

    If nVidia goes down, AMD/ATI cards will start at $1000.

    8800 GTX series was so ahead of the competition back then so they didn't had to work had to earn their money, they became decadent like most companies who lack competetion just like intel did when amd overtook them. Look what happened to intel after - they kicked their R&D into overgear and came out with their best product upgrade in a long time. Bet nvidia will do the same.

    The thing is that we customers should be really happy that there are some real competition, better hardware for less prices than thoose microupgrades for higher prices when a single company is dominant.

    Trust me, Im all about competition. It would mean a nice, cheap 5770 for me to Crossfire with the one I already have. Im just leery of the stunts Nvidia has pulled in the past, along with the whole defective GPU debacle. It will take a lot for me to consider them again when it comes time to upgrade my GPU's.
