NVIDIA is offering discounts of 10 to 20% to graphics card makers, with the goal of clearing out several million GPUs from inventory before the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2005, which ends April 30 this year. NVIDIA is offering till the end of this month, the GeForce FX5200 will be bundled with the GeForce FX5700LE for just US$ 87, an approximate 10% off their combined normal prices. The move will also help Taiwanese graphic card makers lower their production costs, which have recently been pushed up due to rising DRAM prices. However, the ample supply of GPUs may flare up makers’ demand for DRAM and therefore, push up DRAM prices further.
