The Radeon 7000 series will be sticking around a bit longer than we expected.
The GPU nuclear arm’s race between AMD and Nvidia over the last several years has been amazing for consumers, however the R&D costs associated with this competition must have been astronomical. Both companies have been trading blows at different price points for the last few generations, and AMD is finally throwing up the white flag. According to AMD Product Manager Devon Nekechuk, the company will be sticking with its HD 7000 series for the bulk of 2013, and will use promos and software bundles to remain competitive against the green team.
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.
