AMD Radeon HD 7900 price cuts in effect

Posted on Monday, April 16 2012 @ 15:27:03 CEST by

The Tech Report writes AMD's Radeon HD 7900 series has received a price cut, the Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 can now be found for $479 and $399, respectively. Additionally, the site also received word that select etailers and retail partners will be offering the cards with a "Three for Free" promotion, as customers will receive Codemasters' Dirt: Showdown, Alientrap's Nexuiz, and Ubisoft's Deus Ex: Human Revolution for free.

The Radeon HD 7800 series' pricing remains the same, but the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition should now be available for as low as $139.
Considering the the 7970 and 7950 launched at a respective $549 and $449, those price cuts are sizable. Not to mention appropriate. The 7970 should now be slightly cheaper than Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 680, which outperforms the AMD card overall and costs $499. Yes, the GTX 680 still isn't in stock at Newegg, and that spoils its competitive position somewhat—but still.

AMD also tells us its Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition should now be available "as low as $139," which is a good $20 below the launch price. I always thought the 7770 was a tad overpriced compared to previous-gen offerings, so that's another welcome adjustment.
