We recently wrote about AMD's Radeon R9 Nano price drop. Now there's a rumor floating around that the R9 Fury's price sticker will be slashed, too.
Kitguru heard a joyful song about this price drop from a little bird at a "close retail source." That birdie told the site that AMD is planning a price drop for R9 Fury cards, meant to position them better against Nvidia's GeForce GTX 980. Back when we tested the R9 Fury, we concluded that while it's an excellent card on its own, it loses out to the GTX 980 when it comes to smooth frame delivery and power draw.
Since both the Fury and the GTX 980 go for around $500, a price drop could make AMD's card a more appealing choice. We'll have to see just how much AMD lops off the Fury's sticker if this rumor pans out.
