Radeon HD 7970 shows up at Amazon.de

Written by Slobodan Simic

Listed at €529


Just a day before it should officially show up in retail/e-tail, German/Austrian Amazon has jumped the gun and listed AMD's HD 7970 with a price set at €529.

According to our sources, the final price of the card for Europe is set €499. The FOB price is set at around US $480 but when you add tax and some retail margins you end up at around €499/US $549. Of course, Amazon was never one of the cheapest and you can expect at least some of the retailers/e-tailers to sell the card for €499.

The rest of the e-tail/retail should start to list the cards tomorrow and you can check out the Amazon listing here.

Thumbs down AMD.

And gtx 780 or whatever they name it will cost $700 +.

It will depend on Nvidia's answer to HD 7000 series. If they release a Fermi v1 product again, a 700Euro 8970 is possible and it's will be a nightmare for us.

When everybody is depending on Nvidia for lower prices and this being 2012. Who knows, maybe the world really is coming to an end.

What exactly was wrong with v1 Fermi other than it was power hungry. It is roughly 2 times faster than the GTX280. when investing in new graphics its really not worth buying into unless there is a huge jump in performance. 2 times the performance is what you'd expect these days.

Looking at the performance/price of the HD 6970 vs. the HD 7970, the HD 7970 should be selling for no more than $450, becaue the HD 6970 is selling for approx: $339 to $389.

Drop the prices AMD because you don't have anything to compare the HD 7970 with.

@saneblane Depending but disappointed... I doubt nv will release a "cheap" product.

Let them make money of the kids with dads with deep pockets... then the prices will drop for the rest of us.

If power consumption is not that important then review sites must not include the power consumption in their review. Heat is also v1 problem I remember seeing a pix of someone frying an egg over a GTX 480.

He didn't say it doesn't matter to everyone, merely that it's not that important. But the fact that a few people care a bit about power consumption means the review sites need to include it.

Will you accept this fact when it comes to new FX series CPUs? Will you accept that the current bulldozer series are same like Fermi v.1? Then why did AMD fanboys said FX CPUs are performing well, even after reading those reviews? ;)
