AMD lowers prices of its graphics cards once again

A few weeks ago the launch of the Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards prompted AMD to cut the prices of its own high-end models. Apparently the price cut has not been enough as the US company has lowered the prices of the R9 290 series and R9 280 series once again.

The company’s flagship single-GPU Radeon R9 290X now sells for USD 399, down from USD 449 wanted until now; the card has gone down by USD 150 since its launch price of USD 549. The Radeon R9 290 gets cheaper too – AMD charges USD 299 for it, down from its launch price of USD 399. The R9 280X now sells for USD 270, which is just USD 30 from the R9 290. The R9 285 is also affected – the card now costs USD 229, which is just USD 10 more than the GeForce GTX 760.

This numbers game may take a toll on your brain but after all it is good that now there are tons of cards to choose from, especially if you do not want to spend more than USD 300 on one of them.
