NVIDIA shook up the sub $300 graphics card game with its new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (our review here) and now there are new rumors suggesting AMD is preparing price cuts to its Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 590 graphics cards.

No, these price cuts won't be like that fake news that spread like wildfire last week that saw rumors stating AMD had dropped the price of the Radeon RX Vega 56 to $279, rather it sees AMD dropping the price of the Radeon RX 580 to $199 and the RX 590 to $229. AMD launched the Radeon RX 590 at $279, so a large $50 price reduction would help sell many more units, while a solid sub $200 retail price on the RX 580 will make it an even bigger seller.

Remember that the Radeon RX 580 and RX 590 are both 8GB cards, and the RX 580 even comes in a 4GB model so expect that to be found a little cheaper than the rumored $199 price. We should expect these price drops to come into effect in the next couple of weeks and then after that it should be pretty quiet through to June or so when AMD reveals Navi.
