Despite PC enthusiasts having to suffer through months of inflated GPU prices, the market for mid-range graphics cards is seemingly starting to settle. At least, this seems to be the case with AMD’s graphics card models after the California-based semiconductor company’s manufacturing partners treated the RX 7700 XT to a price drop.

This comes after AMD had previously given the RX 7700 XT an official price drop following the RX 7900 GRE’s launch. Now, even though this was an official decision by the GPU’s parent company, it’s worth noting that manufacturers typically don’t have to follow AMD’s pricing decision. However, it seems poor sales and a strong pipeline of upcoming GPUs have forced manufacturers like ASRock and Gigabyte to jump on the price-cut train.

RX 7700 XT GPU price drops to $419

Looking at the RX 7700 XT’s listings on sites such as Amazon and Newegg confirm manufacturers’ seemingly unified decision to lower this particular GPU’s cost. Newegg currently has the Sapphire Pulse model officially listed at $419, while Amazon has ASRock’s model with a similar price tag. Surprisingly enough, Amazon is selling Gigabyte’s version at $439, though the sudden jump may be because of a sudden influx of purchases (its product page says it only has one left in stock).

At this price point, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better mid-range GPU alternative, especially since it very nearly matches the RTX 3080 and 4070. Though, of course, the latter two still provide better overall performance, as shown by this comprehensive GPU comparison chart. That said, if you’re looking to upgrade without bleeding your wallet dry, the 7700 XT is an ideal and relatively affordable option. But if you’re looking for even cheaper alternatives, the best GPU under $250 in 2024 may be what you’re searching for.
