Introduction The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 was recently launched with an MSRP of $599, but prices on AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series have fallen a lot over time. Not only has AMDs pricing on GPUs remained closer to MSRP than NVIDIA’s, since launch, but nowadays they are much more affordable than they ever used to be. Due to AMD not having yet released, its next-generation Radeon 7000 series in the “mainstream” price points, and at the current high pricing of NVIDIA GPUs, it leaves gamers with interesting price-to-price comparisons between NVIDIA’s current generation GPUs based on Ada Lovelace, and AMD’s […]

I thought nvidia was already dropping the RTX 4070 in price by $50, isn't that so?

They're giving a $50 rebate to partners. Meanwhile, though, I've already begun hearing of price drops for it. Let the price wars begin. I don't believe anyone would really say the 4070 is a bad card, people just want it at a lower price.

There has been no official price drop from NVIDIA.

I think you will see discounts online, or from AIBs, but this is only due to NVIDIA rebating 4070's for them.

But officially, NVIDIA has not announced any price drop, MSRP is still $599.

I don't think you'll see many below $579 anyway, and I also think it will be for a limited time, and then prices go back up. And the 6800 XT is clearly below that price point.
Thanks for the comparison. Very interesting. I wonder where the 4070 mobile falls in with these.
Probably a lower-clocked preview of the desktop 4060.
Sounds about right. In recent years we've had mobile next-tier dies literally be the same dies used in the lower-tier desktop and I seem to remember a 3060 mobile that was even the exact same die as its desktop counterpart.
The 6800xt can be back ordered for $500 now

it used to be that Nvidia fans hoped for cheap prices from AMD so that Nvidia will be forced to do a price cut.
now it is other way round. Any drop in price of 4070 will force AMD to discount 6950xt / 6800xt / 6800
Also ahead of Navi 33 8gb reveal, the 12gb 6750xt is being rebated to $310 now. I wonder what that means for price of the brand new 7600xt 8gb
