AMD has cut prices on their MSRP for the RX 460 and RX 470 video cards.
AMD says that it is positioning the RX 470 directly against the GTX 1050 Ti and previous gen GTX 960 cards. It doesn’t just beat the opponent cards on speeds, the Polaris card also surpasses the competition on technology; supporting dual-GPU, Asynchronous Compute, improved memory bandwidth, Adaptive Sync (FreeSync), and HDR visuals.
This price cut combined with better DX12 performance will gave AMD a solid position in the very competitive segment of the market. The AMD Polaris will be a rough contestant this year.
