AMD cuts Radeon 5700 GPU prices just two days before their release

Asus launches graphics card trade-in programme Cash waiting for those upgrading to new Nvidia boards

AMD claims the Ryzen 3000 series processors with Radeon Graphics carry higher clock speeds, new driver feature, and super-fast graphics. The Radeon, RX 5700 XT will be announced for $399 in order to be hooked up to the GeForce RTX 2060 Super, compared to $349 for the Radeon RX 5700, which is the same price as the GeForce RTX 2060. With added performance and a competitive price, these new Super cards seemed to torpedo AMD's upcoming launch before it had even gotten started.

The 2070 and 2080 lines will have the same price as their predecessors so that they will be sold for $499 and $699, respectively. The lineup has standard and Super versions which are slightly better.

That was in a world with no SUPER cards unveiled and just the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 on either side of Navi, but then the $449 price came out and I said it was too much.

However, the Romanian overclocker Bruno chose to go even further: he combined two powerful cards and showed what they are truly capable of. Those purchasing a qualifying graphics card - ranging from Nvidia GTX 1650s to Nvidia RTX 2080 Tis under Asus sub-brands including TUF Gaming and ROG Strix - can receive up to £270 back for their old graphics card, so long as it's on a list of accepted products. Let us know in the comments. AMD is having a hard time competing with current Nvidia GPUs so, how is it going to compete with the more powerful RTX SUPER refreshes are released?

Carl Blair might be just at the beginning of his career, but after attending a technical school, he has a fresh perspective on today's technology. The new prices will make the GPUs a more attractive option for people who liked the specs but were a little put out by the pricing.
