Posted by at 1:56 pm on October 6, 2014

Competition is fierce in the graphics card market, and while we’ve seen AMD and Nvidia duke it out with bundled game offers, it’s the price wars that truly get our attention. Speaking of which, Nvidia certainly got AMD’s attention when it launched Maxwell during the company’s GAME24 event, which saw the release of the GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 for $329 and $549, respectively (MSRPs). AMD has just responded by cutting the price of its Radeon R9 290 and 290X Hawaii cards.


AMD is also planning to slash the price of its Radeon R9 280 graphics card, though at present, it’s the other two cards that are marked down. Specifically, you can now find the Radeon R9 290X selling for $399 at Newegg, down from its original launch price of $549, and the Radeon R9 290 going for $299, down from $399. In some cases, prices are even lower if you factor in mail-in-rebate offers.

As for the Radeon R9 280X, rumor has it dropping to as low as $229, though at the time of this writing, the cheapest we found one selling for new is $270 ($250 after mail-in-rebate).
