Last night we received an unexpected email from AMD regarding the launch of their new RX 5700 series graphics cards, specifically that the launch price has dropped by up to $50. This brings the new RX 5700 and RX 5700 XT in line with the already announced pricing for NVIDIA’s Super lineup.
Rather than summarising the info, here’s the email in full…
AMD is focused on providing gamers with amazing experiences and access to the very best gaming technology at attractive price points. As you have seen, competition is heating up in the GPU market. We embrace competition, which drives innovation to the benefit of gamers.
In that spirit, we are updating the pricing of our new Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards (available on July 7). The revised pricing is as follows:
- 50th Anniversary Edition AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card — $449 USD SEP
- AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT graphics card — $399 USD SEP
- AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics card — $349 USD SEP
Harnessing the all-new RDNA architecture, support for PCIe 4.0, and 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards raise the bar for 1440p gaming experiences, providing stunning visual fidelity and highly responsive gameplay.
Gamers who purchase the new Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards (and other select AMD products) from participating retailers will also receive complimentary, three-month access to Xbox Game Pass for PC, allowing them to play Gears 5 when it launches in fall 2019, and 100+ other high-quality PC games.

We know gamers will be thrilled once they experience the incredible performance and immersive experiences these graphics cards provide.
It’s sure going to be an interesting launch! Which team will you be backing with your cash, NVidia with its G-Sync and real-time ray tracing or AMD with Freesync and new PCIe 4.0 support?
