NVIDIA is expected to introduce its new GeForce GTX 1050 series later this month, with prices anticipated to be around $149 for the Ti edition. Performance of the regular GTX 1050 is expected to be in-line with the AMD Radeon RX 460, while the Ti version should be a bit faster.

To combat the arrival of the mainstream Pascal GPUs from NVIDIA, AMD is expected to announce a price cut for its Radeon RX 470 video card. TweakTown claims AMD will lower the MSRP to $169, a price cut of $10.

So gamers on a budget will have the choice between a $149 GeForce GTX 1050 Ti or a $20 more expensive Radeon RX 470, which is believed to be about 30 percent faster than the 1050 Ti.
AMD launched the Radeon RX 470 at around $179, but will be dropping the price of the RX 470 by $10, with a fresh new price of $169, according to my industry sources. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1050 Ti won't match the speed of the Polaris-based Radeon RX 470, which will be 30% faster - and fully VR-ready (with more performance on the Oculus Rift, thanks to the latest updates unveiled from Oculus during their developer conference, Oculus Connect 3 last week).
