More and more rumors surface regarding NVIDIA's pending GeForce graphics processor release under codename kepler.
The GK104 GPU will be priced at $299 (about 230 EUR) as sources now claim, the sources being various Nvidia AIB partners.
From what we can tell this is only a preliminary price so Nvidia could change it a slightly until the final GK104 parts are shipped depending on chip volume and yields.
GK104 indicates the mid-range product (expected to perorm at current high-end level). Last week a Chinese publication claimed that the upcoming GK104 core would feature a 256-bit wide memory bus, which would be connected to 2GB of video buffer. While the shader count and operating clocks were not provided, the Thermal Design Power (TDP) of GK1104 cards seems to be set at 225W, which is quite close to the GTX 570 (219W).
