Prices on AMD’s fastest Radeons get slashed

Icrontic reports:

"After falling in April under competitive pressure from NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX 600 Series, AMD has announced slashed prices on Radeon HD 7900 Series products." (AMD, NVIDIA, PC, Tech)

I have to give AMD credit for making adjustments and staying competitive at the top end. Nvidia's Kepler GK104 cards looked like they were going to crush AMD, but I have to admit I had to carefully consider the 7970 Lightning/ GHz before I finally bought my GTX 670 4GB. The recent high end editions of the 7970 have been powerhouses and are competitively priced at the high end. I paid nearly $500 for my GTX 670 4GB, and now the 7970s GHz editions are dropping to that price and have more raw power. Good choices are avilable from either the green or red teams.

HD 7970 GHZ is a B.E.A.S.T.!

Most AMD 7900 series cards come with Two Free Games! Nice!

Any way just stay within your budget and buy Nvidia or AMD, either way you will win!

Yes, I agree. Good choices either way. The biggest reason that I went with the GTX 670 4GB was probably the fact that the 7970 is 1 ft. long. I don't know that I can squeeze 2 of those onto my poor board (I may go dual card again eventually; I had dual 6950s before I bought my most recent card). I also really liked the features of the new Nvidia cards (adaptive vsync, power efficiency), but I did have to think about it for awhile.

The factory OC'd versions of 670 are faster all around than the 7970, and retailing for less money, so hopefully AMD prices their cards accordingly. They are also faster than stock GTX 680 so kind of confused about what they were going for there.. maybe because GTX 680 had such low supply.

I got my 7950 last week, replacing my 6950. I like it. Plus I got 3 free games, lol. I gave the Deus Ex game to a friend because I already had it. But I can see some FPS improvements, especially in Crysis 2. Not too big of an improvement, but an improvement none the less. Plus 3gb of memory. How in the hell can these pc games come out on pc's with 8+gb ram then massive amounts of GPU memory these days and some still look like crap?.

My opinion is that I shouldn't have to buy a 300.00+ gpu for my pc to put out good graphics and atleast get 30fps. I know the target is 60fps but metro and crysis 2 make it pretty hard at 1200p resolutions.

We need some type of pc standard, but then I guess we would just have a console.

Practically in love with my 7970 Black Edition, so happy to hear more people will get to experience it.
