It looks like NVIDIA will be reacting to AMD’s R9 290X’s very aggressive pricing. Our friends over at Rigmods gave gotten word that these price drops will go live tomorrow as well as the new The Way It’s Meant To Be Played ‘Pirates, Heroes and Spies’ promotion.
This past week AMD released their third quarter earnings and it looks like they are back to being a profitable company. These results beat analyst expectations, although their PC business continues to shrink.
