AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT, Radeon RX 5700 Officially Launched in India, Priced to Compete With Nvidia GeForce RTX Super

AMD’s Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 graphics cards based on the new RDNA architecture have gone on sale all over the world including in India, as previously announced. However, both models have received price cuts compared to what AMD announced earlier, and the company has directly stated that this is in response to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX Super series GPU lineup which was unveiled less than a week ago. 

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is now officially priced at Rs. 30,990 (plus 18 percent tax, which comes to approximately Rs. 36,570), while the Radeon RX 5700 will cost Rs. 26,990 (approximately Rs. 31,850 including tax) in India.

We embrace competition, which drives innovation to the benefit of gamers. In that spirit, we are updating the pricing of our new Radeon RX 5700 Series graphics cards (available on July 7)”

The new Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 are based on the company’s new RDNA graphics architecture, codenamed ‘Navi’, and use a new 7nm manufacturing process to raise performance while…
