AMD's Radeon HD 7900 series has received a price cut, the Radeon HD 7970 and 7950 can now be found for $479 and $399, respectively. Additionally, the site also received word that select etailers and retail partners will be offering the cards with a "Three for Free" promotion, as customers will receive Codemasters' Dirt: Showdown, Alientrap's Nexuiz, and Ubisoft's Deus Ex: Human Revolution for free.
The Radeon HD 7800 series' pricing remains the same, but the Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition should now be available for as low as $139.
Considering the the 7970 and 7950 launched at a respective $549 and $449, those price cuts are sizable. Not to mention appropriate. The 7970 should now be slightly cheaper than Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 680, which outperforms the AMD card overall and costs $499. Yes, the GTX 680 still isn't in stock at Newegg, and that spoils its competitive position somewhat
