AMD to Slash Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" Series Prices Ahead of Launch: $399 & $349

NVIDIA attempted to torpedo the Radeon RX 5700 "Navi" series graphics card launch with the introduction of its $499 GeForce RTX 2070 Super and $399 RTX 2060 Super. AMD claimed that its upcoming Radeon RX 5700 XT outperformed the original RTX 2070, while its smaller sibling, the RX 5700 outperforms the original RTX 2060. In its E3-2019 reveal, AMD disclosed launch prices of the RX 5700 XT and the RX 5700 to be USD $449 and $379, respectively. The RTX Super launch jeopardizes this, and so, according to VideoCardz, AMD is revising its launch prices.

The Radeon RX 5700 XT now reportedly launches at just $399, while the Radeon RX 5700 is priced at $349. The RX 5700 XT is claimed to beat the original RTX 2070, while the $399 RTX 2060 Super is slower than the RTX 2070. On the other hand, the RX 5700, which was claimed to beat the $349 original RTX 2060, is now price-matched with it, unless NVIDIA comes up with price-cuts. Older reports suggested that with the advent of the RTX Super series, NVIDIA would retire the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070, after the market digests inventories left in the channel. AMD's latest move is sure to disturb that digestion.

Update Jul 6th: This has been confirmed officially by AMD here.

EVGA RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super Pictured

Ahead of formal launch tomorrow (2nd July), followed by a 9th July market availability, pictures of EVGA's custom-design GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super graphics cards were leaked to the web by an early listing on Amazon. The RTX 2060 Super XC Ultra is a triple-slot monstrosity, which uses a thicker heatsink ventilated by a pair of spinners; while the RTX 2070 Super XC is the base variant of an entire stack of cards based on this chip. The boxes have clear "Super" branding in the SKU detail corners. This branding is also found on metal decals on the cooler shrouds, and printed on the back-plates.

The listing also confirms that the RTX 2060 Super features 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. This move was necessitated by AMD equipping its Radeon RX 5700 graphics card with 8 GB of 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory. The RTX 2060 Super makes full use of the 256-bit memory bus width of the "TU106" silicon. The RTX 2070 Super, on the other hand, is based on the larger "TU104" chip, and has 2,560 of the 3,072 CUDA cores present on the chip enabled. This SKU is designed to compete with the RX 5700 XT. We'll find pictures of custom-design RTX 2080 Super as we inch closer to its July 23 market availability date.
