Report: NVIDIA To Cut GeForce GTX 900 Series GPU Prices

by Sebastian Peak |
www.pcper.com
We’ve already seen prices come down during various black Friday sales on several GPUs, but the potential for a permanent price cut makes for interesting speculation if nothing else.
Of course, we could see an answer from AMD in the form of a price reduction from their R9 300-series or Fury/Nano..
The Project Sky-Bridge will feature the new family of APUs and SOCs based on the low-power 20nm Cortex A57 cores with AMD’s GCN core architecture.
The ARM K12 Cores would be targeted towards server, embedded and semi-custom markets so its clear that AMD is once again looking for the dense market to make an approach for the new APUs/SOCs..
