AMD Radeon R9 290X Gets a Price Cut

AMD have dug out the slashing-knife for another round of price cuts, as apparently AMD are working with their add-in board manufacturers and retailers to bring down the price on their current flagship graphics card; the AMD Radeon R9 290X. The prices are expected to settle between $450 and $500 and follows nicely with AMD’s recent move to cut a third of the price on their dual-GPU graphics card.

Nvidia are about to launch their new GeForce GTX 970 and 980 cards, so it could be seen as a preventive attempt from AMD to give more bang for the buck. Many users however see it as long overdue considering its age.

The cheapest version of the current single-GPU flagship can be had at newegg for just $449,99 as a reference model and another $40 for the cheapest after-market version. In the UK they’re even cheaper, with Scan listing the cheapest reference card for just £269.99 inc VAT. Adding an after-market cooling solution however increases the price to £336.35. Overclockers UK are offering the reference design at the same price of £269.99, while the cheapest after market solution can be had for £329.99 inc VAT.

Reports are coming in from users in many different areas around the world, that the cards have dropped there as well. So if you’re in the market for a new graphics solution, keep your eyes out for great Radeon R9 290X deals.
