AMD Radeon RX 590, RX Vega 56 Prices Slashed Amid NVIDIA’s GTX Turing Onslaught

- Advertisement -

Just yesterday, we posted an article comparing the newly released GeForce GTX 1660 to its AMD competitor, the Radeon RX 590. The GTX 1660 pretty much beats the 590 in every game (at a lower price). It became apparent that AMD needed to either come up with the Navi cards ASAP or further reduce the prices of the existing RX 500 series, mainly the RX 590. And well, what do you know, that is exactly what happened.

Amazon is selling the RX 590 for a price tag of $220, same as that of the GTX 1660 along with three AAA games bundled with the card (DmC5, RE2 and The Division 2). At this price, the card is actually quite competitive, and the free games are an added bonus.

If you want the latest architecture with maximum power efficiency and some extra technologies like Adaptive Shading as well as Mesh Shaders, then the GTX 1660/1660 Ti should be your go-to budget cards. However, if you don’t really care about the power consumption, heat or the fancy DX12 do-dads, then there’s nothing wrong in opting for AMD’s Radeon RX 590. The game bundle is worth almost $200 and can be quite enticing if you are short on games.

At Amazon, the Radeon RX 590 (Sapphire version) has been reduced to a price of $219.99. Newegg, on the other hand, has made price cuts when it comes to the mid-range Vega 56, bringing it down to $279.99. Both the cards qualify for the triple game bundle.
