NVIDIA tried to steal some of the thunder from AMD and its NAVI based Radeon RX 5700 series GPUs by unveiling its own GeForce RTX SUPER series cards just days before AMD’s cards were supposed to hit the market. Now, maybe because of this, or maybe some other reason, AMD has decided to lower the prices of its upcoming graphics cards, before they are even launched in the market.
According to multiple sources, the company has decided to reduce the prices of its Radeon RX 5700, RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary graphics cards just two days before their official launch. Although still not confirmed, we can see price drops of up to $50.
The Radeon RX 5700, which was earlier priced at $379, is now expected to cost $30 less at $349. The Radeon RX 5700 XT is expected to get a $50 price cut from $449 to $399. Meanwhile, the special Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition card will now cost $449, down $50 from its initial price of $499. These prices have been confirmed by one source so far, according to Videocardz.
These cards are manufactured on the 7nm process and were unveiled by AMD earlier this year at Computex. They are going to hit the market starting from July 7th.
This battle between AMD and NVIDIA to crack the low to mid-range GPU market just got a lot more interesting, and obviously, the consumer is the clear winner here.
