If you’re looking for a deal to upgrade the graphics capabilities on your current PC, Amazon is offering some significant savings on AMD’s Radeon graphics cards as part of its Deal of the Day promotion. There are currently a number of different options to choose from, with cards manufactured by either Gigabyte or Asus. The largest savings reduces the normal retail price of AMD’s GPU by as much as 44 percent, though users can still save a cool 38 percent on the minimally discounted deal.

Amazon’s deal includes two cards made by Gigabyte. The first deal is for a Gigabyte Radeon RX 580 Gaming-4GD card, which normally retails for $320. As part of the Deal of the Day, the gaming card is discounted to $185. The second Gigabyte card is the Aorus Radeon 580 GV-RX580AUROS-4GD with 4GB of video memory. That card normally retails for $330, but like the first card, is discounted to a similar $185 price point.

Both cards come with three DisplayPort connectors, an HDMI port, and a DVI port. Even if you’re not a gamer, the Radeon RX 580 is also a great card to get started in virtual reality content. If you need something a bit better from AMD, be sure to check out our Radeon RX 590 review.

On the Asus side, the company’s ROG-STRIX RX Vega 56 card with 8GB of video memory is now priced at $410 as part of Amazon’s Deal of the Day, down from $660. All the cards that are part of Amazon’s deal come with RGB backlighting.

AMD and its partners are likely trying to move inventory of existing graphics card following what rival Nvidia had coined a crypto hangover. GPU sales had spiked during the cryptocurrency boom, but demand fell sharply after the crypto market burst, resulting in an oversupply of cards. Both AMD and Nvidia plan on introducing new cards in 2019, and AMD is likely planning sales of existing inventory to make room for its next-generation Navi cards, which is expected to deliver very competitive performance against Nvidia’s RTX series at a more affordable price point.

It’s rumored that AMD’s Navi, which is based on a 7nm architecture, could deliver similar performance to Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2070 for just $250. For comparison, Nvidia’s Founders Edition of the GeForce RTX 2070 is priced at $799.

With new cards on the horizon, if you’re interested in the current generation of graphics card, you should see savings pop up over the next few months.

Someone tweaked AMD’s RX 7800 XT, and the results may surprise you
YouTube channel Techtesters reviewing an underclocked AMD RX 7800 XT graphics card.

AMD’s RX 7800 XT graphics card handily beats Nvidia’s RTX 4070, outperforming it in games and costing less to boot, with the GPU comparison falling firmly in AMD’s favor. The main drawback? Its power consumption is much higher. But it doesn’t have to be that way, as one YouTube channel has shown that undervolting the card could have a notable impact.

When set up right out of the box, AMD’s card has a power draw of 263 watts, while Nvidia’s offering sips just 200 watts. If you’re concerned about your graphics card getting hot and heavy in operation -- and spiking your electricity bill -- the RTX 4070 is probably the better choice.

AMD might still have some next-gen GPUs left in the tank — but I don’t buy it

AMD has said it's done with new GPU dies, but a filing with the European Economic Commission (EEC) suggests that Team Red could still launch graphics cards in its RX 7000 range.

The filing points to AMD releasing an RX 7600 XT sometime in the future, both in 12GB and 10GB variants. AMD's Scott Herkelman says the RDNA 3 lineup is "complete," so what gives? It comes down to the GPU dies.

I tested AMD’s RX 7800 XT against Nvidia’s RTX 4070, and there’s a clear winner

With the release of the Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT, AMD finally set foot in the mainstream gaming sector with its RDNA 3 lineup. Nvidia, its biggest rival, which also makes some of the best graphics cards, was the first to release competing cards with similar performance -- at least on paper. But are Nvidia's options better than AMD's in this generation?

The RX 7800 XT was, from the get-go, said to be the competitor to Nvidia's RTX 4070, but in reality, these GPUs differ both in price and performance. We've tested the RX 7800 XT and compared it to the RTX 4070, and we now know which of these two GPUs is the one to pick.
