AMD Also Preparing Price-Cuts for HD 7000 Series
According to Softpedia, AMD will slash the prices for its Radeon HD 7000 series next week. This is AMD’s response to upcoming GeForce GTX 650 and 660, which arrives tomorrow.

Most importantly, there will be price-cuts for a whole series, not only for mid-range or entry-level cards. First we have Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, which costs around $430 (€335), but AMD decided to lower the price to $410 (€319). The HD 7950 will now cost $290 (€227), current price is $300 (€234), the Boost Edition will cost $300.

Mid-range segment will also receive pricing modification. Actually here’s the the most interesting change — Radeon HD 7870 will cost $240 (€187), while HD 7850 is now priced at $200 (€156) – that’s great news, especially since this card loves overclocking.

Let’s not forget about HD 7750, which is now for $100, later to receive $5 price-cut.

It’s worth noticing the price for Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition, probably the best card for the buck in this price tag.

UPDATE: Also NVIDIA cards received further price cuts:

  • Gigabyte WF3X and EVGA GTX 680 SC:$480
  • EVGA/Galaxy GTX 670: $380
  • Gigabyte GTX 660 Ti WF2X: $285
  • MSI GeForce GT 640 1GB: $80
  • MSI GeForce GT 640 2GB: $85
