Newegg lowered the prices not Nvidia. And also those price cuts where also seen on AMD hardware. AMD DID said that they had nothing to do with these price cuts. But TechPowerUp and other sites decided to only mentioned the wccftech article about Nvidia price cuts and ignore the equivalent article about AMD. Nice advertisement for Nvidia. AGAIN.

Thought I mentioned the 390X now being available for as low as $359 after MIR and how it compared nicely to the GTX 980 that was more expensive?

Price WAR! Yeeeeeesss! Hope it only hurts the retailers and not AMD. The retailers really hurt AMD's market-share during the bit-coin mining insanity!

Yes you did, but the thing is that the whole story on the internet started from


and here

Wccftech is also wrong of course, taking the price cuts that newegg managed to get, or decided for itself to do and call them price cuts from AMD and Nvidia. They are not from AMD or Nvidia and they are limited on newegg as far as I know. Last time I checked, newegg is not planet earth's only retailer, so for 95% of earth's population this news is wrong.

Those two links where posted in the original article from another poster, I would expect in this podcast to read about price cuts from a certain retailer, and at least not see again the AMD part of the story ignored. No. Nvidia didn't responded to AMD's 0.8% gain the last quarter.

Scott Wasson going to AMD, that's kind of like AMD's Phil Rogers going to Nvidia. I just did not see that coming! Hopefully Phil Rogers can help improve Nvidia's asynchronous compute in hardware deficiency, and Scott Wasson can help improve AMD's GPU drivers! First question for Wasson, what about the AMD Linux/Steam OS and Vulkan driver support. I'd like to see some AMD made Vulkan demos, those Nvidia Vulkan demos where nice.
