AMD Prepares Yet Another Round of Radeon HD 7000 Series Price Cuts

With NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 660 and GTX 650 threatening to make things messy in the sub-$250 market, and competitive pricing between NVIDIA partners with high-end SKUs, AMD is preparing yet another round of price cuts to its Radeon HD 7000 GPU series. Its last round followed the launch of GeForce GTX 660 Ti. According to the source, this is what AMD's lineup could look like, when it's done resetting prices:
  • Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition - starts at $430
  • Radeon HD 7970 standard - starts at $410
  • Radeon HD 7950 Boost - starts at $300
  • Radeon HD 7950 standard - starts at $290
  • Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition - starts at $240
  • Radeon HD 7850 2 GB - starts at $200


Some of these new prices have already taken effect in leading online stores. The new pricing sees "new and improved" SKUs such as the HD 7970 GHz Edition and HD 7950 Boost get closer to their respective standard SKUs. The Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition appears to have its price-tag trained on GeForce GTX 660. The Radeon HD 7850, on the other hand, could dig into the $150-$200 price range, which is yet to be addressed by NVIDIA's GeForce 600 family.Source: Softpedia

Yeah, it's not even close. OC the 7950 to 1200 mhz (maybe more if you're lucky) and it picks a fight with the 680 no problem :)

660/670 is a waste of money (especially with the 7950 prices going low).

Having a 2 card setup is always going to have a higher chance to cause more problems than a 1 card setup.
But if you really would want a 2 card setup, another 7970 would be the way to go.
AMD drivers have gotten a lot better I wouldn't hesitate to run a dual set up again, but then again I currently run two setups with 4 GPU's of old.

I see this as a win for the consumers:toast:
I will stick with my GTX 580's, however the 7970's are looking really nice for their price (especially the 7950's)!!!
