Arrival of the Radeon R9 290x with 8GB

The issue of the amount of RAM that incorporate graphics cards and what is needed has always been surrounded by some controversy, on one hand, manufacturers often take advantage of the ignorance of consumers who think a graphics card is better the "more gigs" have, although we compare chips from different ranges.

AMD lowers the price of the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 by 33%

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.

Some famous online stores like Newegg have already made this price cut and from this moment, they are available at their lowered price.

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.
