AMD this morning announced that the replacement for the Radeon HD7950, the R9 280, is getting a price cut to make the card more competitive in international markets. The card’s recommended retail price will drop down to $249, putting tremendous pressure on Nvidia and its partners to scrutinise their pricing, as the only competitor in the same price range is the Geforce GTX760. This won’t affect pricing locally for another month or two, but its still good news for buyers who previously held back on their purchases while waiting for a better deal.
