Launch of NVIDIA GTX 1660 cards Resurrected the middle market in graphics processing, thanks to positive cost-effectiveness and efficiency that managed to make even the popular Radeon RX 580 pale - and now the competitor AMD Is trying to fight back by cutting prices on its existing models so that they can place maximum competition for new ones that have begun to trickle into stores around the globe.
We first heard unofficial reports about a significant price cut for the most advanced Polaris model, the Radeon RX 590, and now the prophecy seems to be coming true With Sapphire's patented Nitro Plus model dropping to a base price of just $ 220, Or $ 275.18 including VAT and home delivery - about NIS 995, plus eligibility for three notable games with a total cost of up to about $ 180 as part of the Raise Your Game Fully Loaded project. Absolutely impressive.
At this price, the RX 590 actually competes head-to-head with the GeForce GTX 1660, with performance tests demonstrating that these two cards also have very similar levels of performance with no unequivocal and absolute lead for either side - though in terms of additional speed potential or efficiency Because the new models from NVIDIA are significantly better. GTX 1660 cards are currently available for purchase Zotac, EVGA או Gigabyte At a final price of between 270.66 and 272.56 dollars - that is, a few dozen shekels below the coveted 1,000 shekel threshold and also a little below the price of the competing model from the red camp, so the choice is yours.
At the same time, it seems that AMD is also trying to lower the price of the Radeon RX Vega 56 models so that they can provide competition for the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti launched last month - with a single example in the Newegg online store In the form of MSI's Air Boost model Which can be purchased for NIS 1,444.8. This will cost about 180 shekels from the cheapest GTX 1660 Ti models, although it should include eligibility for games as well as slightly better performance potential, especially in uses that can take advantage of the increased graphics bandwidth they provide Memories God-HBM2 The built-in.
