Though we already had some of the Gigabyte Graphics cards in the market. Now Gigabyte has entered the Indian market officially with Graphics cards by partnering with Ingram Micro to sell Nvidia GeForce Graphics cards. So far the arrangement is between Nvidia and Gigabyte only, yet it is to be seen whether Gigabyte also starts selling AMD based cards. Gigabyte globally sells AMD graphics cards as well.

Gigabyte launches New Graphics Cards in India: When we checked with Snapdeal, Amazon, and Flipkart the number of Gigabyte graphics cards listed with them are very less but it is likely that we see a lot of aggression from Gigabyte to expand the current sales volume of graphics Cards from Online sellers.
Also Indian market has a strong presence of Zotac, Asus, Sapphire, and Gainward for graphics card segment. We expect to see some of the top line graphics cards like Nvidia GTX 980 and GTX 970 to be listed soon by Gigabyte.
We already expect the graphics card prices to correct and become cheaper by 30% with Gigabyte showing some aggression we may see some more decline in graphics card prices in Indian Subcontinent.
