Launched on the market on April 8 of this year, AMD Radeon R9 295X2 cost a whopping $ 1,499.99. Yes, it is true that they are the most powerful graphics cards from AMD but the price still seemed a bit inflated. Now AMD has decided to make the first price cut to the monstrous prices and at nothing less than 33%, keeping their recommended price at $ 999.99.
With this price cut, we can say that the Radeon R9 295X2 are priced more in line with the usual AMD pricing, which in turn is more consistent than the current price of the Radeon R9 290X (the R9 295X2 now costs less that two R9 290x). Some famous online stores like Newegg have already made this price cut and from this moment, they are available at their lowered price.
Since the R9 295X2 now costs less than two R9 290X, it does seem a better option for users looking for a high quality desktop system, at a more reasonable price as it does pay off. This will certainly mean an increase in sales for AMD. Due to a sudden price reduction of $500 to its flagship computer, that is no joke.
