AMD’s RDNA 3 graphics cards have witnessed a significant price drop following the launch of Nvidia’s RTX Super refresh lineup. Two notable GPUs from the RX 7000 family, the RX 7700 XT and RX 7900 XT, have reached new lows, making them highly attractive options for consumers.
The mid-range RX 7700 XT is now available at $352 on Amazon.com and $356 on Newegg, representing a compelling value proposition for budget-conscious gamers. However, these cards quickly sold out, highlighting their popularity.
The high-end RX 7900 XT has also received a price cut, dropping to $699 on both Amazon.com and Newegg. This price applies to the Sapphire Pulse model, which is still in stock at the time of writing.
These price reductions are substantial, especially considering that some custom models were previously priced above the MSRP. For instance, the PowerColor Hellhound 7700 XT is now 25% off at Newegg, making it an exceptional deal.
The price cuts are largely attributed to the competitive pressure exerted by Nvidia’s RTX Super refresh cards. AMD’s RX 7800 XT has also seen its price drop to as low as $480 in the US, making it a compelling choice for those seeking a balance between performance and affordability.
The price drops have created a ripple effect, with other 7700 XT graphics cards expected to follow suit. This price war benefits consumers, offering more options and better value for their money.
The pricing pressure has also impacted Nvidia’s existing Lovelace GPUs, including the RTX 4070 Ti, which has experienced a recent price reduction. Rumors suggest that the RTX 4070 Ti may be phased out in favor of the upcoming 4070 Ti Super refresh, leading to inventory clearance sales.
Hopefully, these price cuts will extend to other AMD models and regions, providing consumers with a wider selection of affordable and powerful graphics cards.
