When AMD announced its next-gen Navi-based Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards [theverge.com] last month, the news was just slightly underwhelming [theverge.com] because the prices didn't necessarily make them the obvious alternative to Nvidia's rival chips.
But just two days before their July 7th launch date, AMD has taken the drastic step of dropping the prices on these new GPUs.
The Radeon 5700 XT, previously listed at $450, will now cost $400, and the Radeon 5700, previously $380, will be priced at $350. (There's also a $500 Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition that'll retail for $450.)
That's just super.
