Lower Prices For Radeon HD 7000 Series Graphics Cards
AMD annoucnes the new prices for their flagship models. This is few weeks after the previous cuts and it looks like AMD is preparing their lineup for NVIDIA’s upcoming mid-range lineup, so that people will still grab some AMD products before that.
Prices will go into effect on Monday, July 16:
- Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition – $499
- Radeon HD 7970 – $429
- Radeon HD 7950 – $349
- Radeon HD 7870 – $299
Here’s the comparison to the launch prices and the cheapest offers I could find on Newegg.
|Launch Price||New price||Newegg Offers|
|Radeon HD 7970||$549||$429||$429|
|Radeon HD 7950||$449||$349||$339|
|Radeon HD 7870||$349||$299||$289|
If you were waiting for GeForce GTX 660, then you might find this offers attractive. Nevertheless, it’s always better to wait those three weeks to see how GTX 660 performs.
