AMD is slashng the price of the Radeon 5700 series - Gaming Today

I wanted to have weeks to write this review but after 18-hour days for the past couple of weeks to endure all of the industry events like Computex 2019 and AMD's own Next Horizon Gaming event in LA, I'm pooped. It has been a rough month.

Nvidia's RTX GeForce Super - a refresh of the GeForce RTX lineup of GPUs - was unveiled in early July. Within the "spirit" of competition that it says is "heating up" in the graphics market - specifically NVIDIA's "Gargantuan" recent RTX cards - all three variations of the graphics card would possibly maybe be more affordable than we thought.

In a statement, the company said: "AMD is focused on providing gamers with awesome experiences and access to the very best gaming technology at attractive price points".

The 50th Anniversary Edition AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will be now priced at $449, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT will be now priced at $399 and AMD Radeon RX 5700 will be now priced at $349. Now it seems that the Navi cards are once again the more attractive option, due to the lower pricing.

Secondly, it pisses me off that AMD did it this way. Nvidia is offering a bundle on the Super cards.

The price drop does smack a little of knee-jerk reaction from AMD.

The new Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 are based on the company's new RDNA graphics architecture, codenamed 'Navi', and use a new 7nm manufacturing process to raise performance while running more power efficiently.

Two of the new cards will be priced at the same level as their "non super" counterparts, but offer average performance gains of about 15 per cent, according to Nvidia.

Today is launch day for a whole salvo of AMD hardware.
