AMD Cuts Radeon HD 7990 Price by $200, Now $799 (or Less)

You may have noticed that AMD's Radeon HD 7990 graphics card is selling for less money these days. That's because the Sunnyvale chip designer issued a generous price cut to its flagship part, and the end result is that you can get your mitts on what was once a $1,000 card for around $700 or less. Shop around a little and you could save even more.

Granted, $700 is hardly cheap, but we're talking about a dual-GPU graphics card that's capable of performing like two Radeon HD 7970 cards when properly scaled (see our full review). Equally important, there's a value proposition at the $700 price point that didn't exist at the $1,000 mark.

AMD Radeon HD 7990

Officially, AMD knocked $200 off the MSRP. We reached out to one of our contacts at AMD who confirmed the price cut.

"AMD has worked with its partners to enable an incredible US$799 SEP for the world's fastest graphics card, the AMD Radeon HD 7990," AMD told HotHardware in a statement. "In combination with the Never Settle Reloaded bundle, which provides 8 AMD Gaming Evolved titles right in the product box, the HD 7990 is the most amazing graphics deal in the market today."

While $799 is the new official MSRP, AMD's hardware partners are paying less, and as a result, street prices are lower too, albeit usually by way of a mail-in-rebate. One example is the XFX Radeon HD 7990, which is marked down to $699 after rebate on Newegg. It also comes with 8 free games courtesy of AMD's Never Settle Reloaded bundle referenced above.

A quick peek online shows several other cards priced around $730 street, though some SKUs have been spotted for as low as $630 (after rebate). Those tend to sell out quickly, however, so if you spot one and are in the market for such a card, you'll want to pull the trigger before it's sniped by someone else.

So, except for a minimal number of games and benchmarks, you can get a card that performs better than the Titan and the GTX 690 for between 200 and 300 less. This should be making headlines.

For reference, the GTX 780 is currently going for anywhere from $650-700. If you have the money, hey. Though I also agree with you on that "Still $700".

Don't matter one bit for clixxer :D

He's got a rig with a 7990 on its way to him already! Congratulations again bud! :)

I also could have sworn this morning I saw 300$ off, which is just as insane, but I'm glad to see the price drop down to what is now pretty reasonable for some enthusiasts. The 8 freaking free games help as well!

Thanks man! 

Well I think the $300 off came from the some were selling at the $999 and since the powercolor one is $699 it is $300 off dependings.
