AMD Radeon HD 7000 series priced

To hit market with US $449/549 price tag


We hear whispers of the final launch price of AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 7000 series cards and it looks as though the faster variation of the Tahiti chip will hit US $549 price tag while the slower one should be priced at US $449.

Of course, bear in mind that nothing is carved in stone here as AMD still has the option and ample time to change the price, or as they call it, adjust it, even a few days before the actual launch. The same thing goes for the name of the card as these are only finallized when partners boxes are sent for printing. But for now, the HD 7950 and the HD 7970 are the names most partners are using and these US $449/549 are the prices that came from AMD.

As you already know, AMD planned to ship the cards in the first week of December as holiday shopping is always a nice timeframe for a launch. Unfortunately, TSMC is the one to blame as we are hearing that even the yields of the 40nm HD 6900 series are still not great and TSMC is also the reason why HD 7000 got pushed to early-January shipping date, or in time for CES 2012.

In any case, we'll keep our eyes and ears ready in case AMD decides to change these anytime soon.

Those prices are very steep, but i heard that the 7900 series is dual gpu based cards, so if that's the case then it's ok, but if these are single gpu cards then they are expensive.

7900 series all dual GPU cards?! Do you look at roadmaps or watch keynotes at all? [censored] that, where were you the last 10 years to come up with that?! And God knows why your post got thumbed up... even once!

Oh i cant wait for the other rebrands, i mean entries that will complete the 7000 series lineup. I love how all the bs the AMD fanboys said would happen to nVIDIA nearly happened to AMD. Soooo glad i'm not a brain-dead fanboy!

and whats wrong with that? if they will be good,i will get one,its that some kinda sin to humanity?
you saying its matter who made vga card you can afford and you like? for me,doesnt matter who make card - Nv or amd - unless there is no engineers who made $hitdozzer.
Only idiots sticking with one company without reason and paying whatever card costs just because he is the fagboy.Im buying what i like and what suits me
amd video cards not amd cpu's,at least i hope
Im not gonna rush and buy until both camps will have cards out,simple

Whats wrong? You constant bitching "amd fagboys" and on AMD graphics, and now it doesnt matter who makes the card.. You cant even spell Bulldozer without writing "$hit", how do you expect people to take you serious?

More serious:
Any information how much bandwidth XDR2 would have and its performance vs the GDDR5 they chose?
