AMD Stays in the Game with Another Round of Radeon HD 7000 Series Price Cuts

Paul Lilly

Talk about a buyer's market if you're a gamer. It's great to time to go videocard shopping, both because there are new GPUs landing on store shelves, and also due to the fact that prices are coming down. Perhaps looking to steal some thunder from Nvidia's Kepler-based GeForce GTX 660 and GTX 650 launch, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is reportedly reducing the price of its Radeon HD 7000 series.

Here's how it breaks down, according to Softpedia :

  • Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition: $430 and up
  • Radeon HD 7970: $410 and up
  • Radeon HD 7950 Boost Edition: $300 and up
  • Radeon HD 7950: $290 and up
  • Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition: $240 and up
  • Radeon HD 7850: $200 and up

Outside of mail-in-rebates, we saw prices that were slightly higher online in most cases, but not by much. And if you are willing to play the MIR game (your mileage may vary), the deals get even better. Either way, there are a lot of capable GPUs out there that are more than up to the task of playing today's games without putting you in the poorhouse.
