AMD Radeon graphics cards get another price cut

Partners behind it this time


Some of AMD's Radeon graphics cards, or to be precise, the Radeon HD 7850 and Radeon HD 7770 have recently received yet another price cut.

This price cut can be considered AMD's response to recent introduction of Nvidia graphics cards in the sub-$200 price range. The AMD Radeon HD 7850 1GB has been dropped down to US $159 (after rebate) while the 2GB version will be selling for US $189.

In addition to the Radeon HD 7850, the Radeon HD 7770 also got the new US $119 suggested retail price which will make the market positioning of the upcoming GTX 650 Ti much more difficult.

According to a post over at the XBitlabs.com, the new price cuts do not come directly from AMD but rather partners themselves. Although AMD did issue a statement that this price cut is aimed at holiday gaming season and value/performance market, it is quite clear that they simply want to make the life of Nvidia partners just a tad bit harder.
