Large Price Cut on Radeon HD 7990Category: Video Cards

Good news for anyone looking to upgrade their GPU to something really powerful. AMD's Radeon HD 7990 has received a huge price cut on Newegg, going down from $999 to $799. The price drop comes after the release of AMD's new Catalyst 13.8 Beta Driver. The new driver fixes the frame pacing issue on CrossfireX video cards, so the Radeon HD 7990 should now be able to churn out some even more impressive frame rates than before. Despite the substantially lower price, the Radeon HD 7990 is capable of competing with NVIDIA's GTX 690 and Titan, both costing around $1000.
There are still 7990s on sale on Newegg, but be warned. Some of them are non-refundable and only offer a 30 day replacement policy. So if that concerns you, you might be better off with a 7970, which is an impressive card as well.
