AMD’s domination in the sub-$200 market is rattled with NVIDIA’s introduction of the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, and the GTX 1050. In addition to sending out media flyers pointing out what makes its GPUs better consumer choices than NVIDIA’s, the company cut prices of two key SKUs – Radeon RX 470 4GB, and Radeon RX 460.
Pricing of the Radeon RX 470 4 GB is cut down to $159.99, from its $169.99 launch price. This puts the SKU just $20 above the GTX 1050 Ti. For $20 more you get double the memory bandwidth and higher performance, says AMD. Price of the Radeon RX 460 2 GB is cut down to $99.99, from $109.99, making it $10 cheaper than the GTX 1050 (non-Ti). The GeForce GTX 1050 series goes on sale from the 25th October, 2016.
