I was looking at newegg day before yesterday and the prices were exactly same what they have mentioned now...

They seem to have been shattered for many Aussie sites, perhaps not JUST newegg?

MSRP on the 7970 atm is 429, and typical online prices at or slightly under that. They're just dropping it another 10 bucks, but that will push typical prices below 400 is what I'm guessing.

which means more price cuts for retailers like newegg. it doesn't take a genius to figure this out tbh.

Oh, alright.
I live outside US but refer to newegg for pricing. If they r retailers then they would further drop the price..
But i think its just 10 dollars this time.... ANd honestly speaking AMD didnt have to drop prices anymore ... They already offer more performance/dollar.

Look at the prices of the 7870 and 7850 O.0

They are lower than what some people dare to ask for used last gen cards that are weaker and use more power.

AMD is doing well. This sounds like I am going to sell my trusty 560 and go to the read team. I love how well the 7850 can be overclocked to performance over a 570. And still be cooler, more silent and use less power. thumb.gif

Maybe now people will stop asking $200+ for 6970's and $300 for 580's now.

actually 7850 can be overclocked to be on par with its big brother 7870... which is already faster than gtx580. rolleyes.gif

But like i said, i've not owned AMD since the mid 90's. So i can't really comment on how true this is today....

I used ATi/AMD since the Radeon 9000 until today and personally I never had any issues with drivers, though always with single cards.

HD 7970
- $410

GTX 670
- $400

HD 7950
- $290

GTX 660 Ti
- $300

So basically 7970 is now competing against 670 and the 7950 against 660.

nVidia, your move.
