Nvidia may have decided to give off its GeForce GTX1070 which is a super graphics card for $380, but that approach has been countered by its longtime competitor AMD. AMD decided to bring down the price of its own graphics card to about half of the price tag Nvidia put on its own graphics card.
At the Computex press conference, AMD revealed the Radeon RX480 Video Card which is powerful enough to run VR games for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive headsets. The company also announced that its own graphics card will be retailing for just $199, making it the cheapest graphics card to come with VR support.
AMD has proven that it intends to bring its video card, not just to some hardcore gamers, but to everyone, and that has been the force behind the price difference as compared to its rival. The RX480 comes with 5 teraflops of computing power while we find 6 teraflops on Nvidia’s GTX1070 that’s retailing for $380, so AMD’s RX480 comes with more power at a reduced price. This will make it very hard for Nvidia to challenge AMD without reducing the prices of its own graphics cards.
