It looks like NVIDIA was ready for AMD’s launch today and has cut the prices on two of their 600 series cards. The GTX 660 has been given a price cut down from $200 to $179. That means it can better compete with the R9 270X and the R7 260X as it will sit in between both cards.
NVIDIA has been the market leader when it comes to the super performing giant computers and workstations and in this department its sole ruler is the Tesla K20X which is one of the best in its category and has been featured in the world’s fastest Titan supercomputer. It is time to move a step forward and NVDIA has never been the one to stay behind. This time we are expecting a new release for this market of super computers and we will soon be viewing the NVIDIA Tesla K40 which has been codenamed as the ATLAS.
Rumors had been circulating around about NVIDIA working on a new graphics card ever since AMD launched its R9 290X at the GPU 14 event and claimed it to be faster than the Titan. This didn’t come as a surprise as the rumors were believed to be true as NVIDIA was not going to stay behind if AMD has challenged one of its contenders and now we have the peak into the most powerful GK110 Core.
I looks like we are getting a little more clarification on the new upcoming graphics card from NVIDIA. Information posted on the PCEVA forums lets us know that the card you see below is the GeForce GTX 760 SE or GTX 750 Ti. This is yet another GK106-based graphics card from NVIDIA.

Its crazy to think, but it has been 5 months since NVIDIA introduced their GeForce 700 series graphics cards. If you remember the first three cards in the series were launched very close to each other, the GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 arrived in late May followed by the GeForce 760 in mid-July. Since then NVIDIA has been pretty quiet and we thought that may have been it for the 700 series, but a report from ChinaDIY says that NVIDIA could be possibly preparing an entry level GeForce 700 Series graphics card.
