AMD HD 6900 series gets a price cut
by Slobodan Simic on02 December 2011
XFX cards US $30.00 cheaper
While looking at current prices of AMD's HD 6900 series cards we noticed a nice price cut for both the HD 6950 and the HD 6970 XFX cards at Newegg.com.
Of course, since we are talking about Newegg.com, all of these price cuts are with a mail-in-rebate and include free shipping, as well as Dirt 3 download code in a limited time offer. The XFX HD 6970 was previously priced at US $349.99 and dropped to US $329.99, which translates to US $299.99 with a US $30 mail-in-rebate.
The XFX HD 6950 is currently priced at US $239.99 but with the same mail-in-rebate it translates to US $209.99. There are also some US $20 mail-in-rebates with Radeon HD 6800 series cards and we are pretty sure that all other AMD partners will pretty soon join in.
Of course, such price cut/deals were expected as Nvidia did put some pressure on Radeon HD 6950 cards with its limited edition GTX 560 Ti 448.
You can check out the deals over at Newegg.com.
