AMD has once again cut the prices of their R9 290 Series and R9 280 Series graphics cards. We of course assume this is better to compete with NVIDIA. The R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280 and R9 285 all see price cuts.
These new price cuts see the flagship R9 290X drop down to $399, which is a $150 overall drop from its launch price of $549. The R9 290 has been cut down to $299 this is from its launch price of $399. The R9 280X is down to $270, that is just $30 less than the R9 290. The R9 295, which was only launched just 2 months ago sees its price go down to $229, just $10 more than NVIDIA’s GTX 760. It looks like you have a lot more options now when looking for a graphics card.
