It’s been a very busy past week for the graphics card world, with NVIDIA launching its updated GeForce SUPER models last week, and AMD following-up this past Sunday with its Navi-based RX 5700. With days having passed since both sets of cards officially hit the market, we decided to make the rounds and see what was in stock, and what pricing might look like.
At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of SUPER cards floating around in stock. Amazon does have one RTX 2070 SUPER from GIGABYTE in stock at the moment for the SRP of $499. For $30 more, that can be upgraded to a white overclocked model.
Over at Newegg, most models appear to be sold out, with some exceptions. There’s currently an SRP-priced RTX 2060 SUPER from GIGABYTE, and a $420 OC version sporting three fans. The only 2070 SUPER we found was a model $150 above SRP, the EVGA XC ULTRA, priced at $649.
At NVIDIA’s own website, the RTX 2070 SUPER is currently sold out, but the RTX 2060 FE isn’t, and its priced is locked to the SRP of $399.
While there are preorders aplenty on the NVIDIA SUPER side with partner cards, AMD surprisingly has plenty of stock of its RX 5700 series cards, and maybe even more surprisingly, a lot of them sit at SRP, based on at least Amazon and Newegg. We could actually link to a number of options here, but PowerColor is a good start. Over at Newegg, a handful of XT models are also in stock, and again are for the expected $399 pricing. That includes a PowerColor and an XFX model.
At AMD’s website, the company has both of its models in stock right now – or three, to be fair, if you count the 50th anniversary model.
Perhaps the most important finding in our search is that AMD used the 5700 naming for an A10 APU, and ultimately, it’s not that old of a CPU. Despite that, it actually has an Internet Explorer icon on the box. So, if you’re ever needing better performance with that piece of software, now you know where you should be looking!
Not sure which new GPU you want? Luckily, we took an in-depth look at NVIDIA’s SUPER last week, and AMD’s RX 5700 earlier this week. They should do well to help you settle on a choice.
