GeForce FX is coming in late January
The online magazine 'The Inquirer' claims to have found out from reliable sources that Creative Labs will be the first provider in Europe to bring graphics cards with nVidia's GeForce FX chipset onto the market towards the end of January 2003.
A few days ago it was assumed that the first batches of chips would only be delivered to selected manufacturers and Creative Labs seems to have won the race. In particular, the extremely high degree of distribution due to a good infrastructure should have been decisive for nVidia's choice. Creative says they will be able to deliver products to over 20,000 stores within a week. Whether the initial monopoly position arises, however, the 'price question'. After all, Creative Labs will not just give up on this competitive advantage. The Inquirer estimates an MSRP of $ 499. In the USA, the manufacturer PNY is said to have been awarded the contract for the first few weeks of sales.
