An unnamed AMD partner is reportedly claiming that the company is planning to cut the cost of the 16 GB AMD Radeon RX 6000 series card. The decision is allegedly due to the recent unveiling of Nvidia's Ampere GeForce RTX 30-series. The arrival of the RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3090 has increased the pressure on the AMD RDNA Big Navi GPU.

The Nvidia RTX 3080 retails at $699 with twice the gaming performance of the RTX 2080. The RTX 3070 retails at $499 with performance allegedly outshining that of the RTX 2080 Ti. According to the latest claim, AMD will ensure that its latest offering in the market could compete better with its rival not only in performance but also in price.

The tipster claimed that the 16 GB AMD Big Navi RX 6000 would retail at $599. Following the Ampere announcement, the price would reportedly drop to only $549 for the said graphics card.
