AMD Radeon HD 7000 series priced

To hit market with US $449/549 price tag


We hear whispers of the final launch price of AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 7000 series cards and it looks as though the faster variation of the Tahiti chip will hit US $549 price tag while the slower one should be priced at US $449.

Of course, bear in mind that nothing is carved in stone here as AMD still has the option and ample time to change the price, or as they call it, adjust it, even a few days before the actual launch. The same thing goes for the name of the card as these are only finallized when partners boxes are sent for printing. But for now, the HD 7950 and the HD 7970 are the names most partners are using and these US $449/549 are the prices that came from AMD.

As you already know, AMD planned to ship the cards in the first week of December as holiday shopping is always a nice timeframe for a launch. Unfortunately, TSMC is the one to blame as we are hearing that even the yields of the 40nm HD 6900 series are still not great and TSMC is also the reason why HD 7000 got pushed to early-January shipping date, or in time for CES 2012.

In any case, we'll keep our eyes and ears ready in case AMD decides to change these anytime soon.
