With the release of the new range of AMD graphics cards and with the next-gen consoles just around the corner, the competition between AMD and Nvidia has never been more intense. Just recently, we saw some key evidence for this; a massive price drop of Nvidia’s GTX 780 and 770 by more than $150.
This is more than likely a response to the release of AMD’s new flagship graphics card, the R9 290X, which before had the ability to out-perform the GTX 780, and for a cheaper price.
The GTX 780 has now dropped from $640 to $499, making it $50 cheaper than the R9 290X, even if AMD’s offering does still slightly outperform the competition. However, Nvidia are also offering the GTX 780 in a holiday bundle which will include free copies of Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Batman: Arkham Origins and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, which means that you would make a saving of $100 (£62.12).

All sounds pretty tempting, eh?
