We have gotten confirmation from AMD that the 5700 series will be seeing a significant price cut across the board in order to compete with NVIDIA’s newly launched SUPER-series GPUs – While the 5700, 5700 XT and 5700 XT 50th Anniversary edition were originally to launch at $379, $449, and $499 respectively, however, the company has decided to cut prices across the board by up to $50.
This new pricing will aim the RX 5700-Series squarely against the GeForce RTX 2060 and newly launched RTX 2060 SUPER. This is great news since NVIDIA’s SUPER GPUs could have invalidated the RX 5700 series’s value before it even launched had AMD kept the prices the same. We can’t say right now how the 5700 series performs (check back in on Sunday), but at the very least it is clear that the 5700 series will be more competitive than originally thought.
Overall, we’re happy to see AMD and NVIDIA launching at least moderately competitive GPUs after such a long period of both companies being highly non confrontational. The RX 5700 series and the SUPER series represent the most competitive GPUs we’ve seen in some time.
