The new Radeon RX 5700 hasn’t even yet officially launched as we’re still awaiting Sunday the 7th of July, yet AMD in a rare event has now officially announced that is it adjusting the launch prices of the new Navi cards to lower price points.
Originally, the Radeon 5700 XT Anniversary edition, the XT, and the standard variant were priced at $499, $449, and $379. AMD has now lowered the price points to $449, $399 and $349.

The move isn’t unprecedented, but is something extremely rare. What is interesting is that AMD’s Scott Herkelman (CVP & GM AMD Radeon) yesterday posted an interesting but short tweet:

Scott's snarky tweet is suggesting AMD had planned the move all along- playing a bait & switch in terms of the pricing of the RX 5700, most likely in preparation and in response to Nvidia’s newest Super card line-up.
We’re looking forward to covering the RX 5700 series cards when the time comes – hopefully soon!
