AMD Drops Price of Radeon RX Vega 56 Amid GTX 1660 Ti Launch

Just before NVIDIA released their new GTX Turing graphics card, the GTX 1660 Ti, AMD slashed the price of its Radeon Vega 56 by quite a bit. Originally, the card was priced at $400, but at the moment it is being sold for $279 across all major retailers. That’s the same as how much a GTX 1660 Ti costs.

As per AMD, this won’t be the permanent price of the RX Vega 56 and only a limited time offer. The card will come bundled with three major AAA titles even with the discount, namely Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 2 and The Division 2.

Currently, AMD doesn’t really have much in the way of competitive offerings in the GPU market. So, price cuts seem to be the only viable option, not that it’s a bad thing for gamers. Still, after all the fanfare of Vega VII, it’s hard to justify the existence of that GPU. For starters, the card is out-of-stock at most retailers, secondly it performs almost the same as NVIDIA’s RTX 2080 (in fact marginally slower at times), and on top of that doesn’t have any of the RTX, DLSS or adaptive shading technologies that come with Turing.

We’re hearing chatter that even the existing Polaris RX 500 series might also get a price cut to keep up with team green’s aggressive onslaught, we’ll have more on that soon.
