Right now AMD is rumoured to be decreasing the price of their RX 470 GPU in response to Nvidia's upcoming GTX 1050Ti, which is rumoured to be coming with a price of $150 in the US.  
 

At the time of writing AMD's RX 480 comes in with a price of around $180, with Tweaktown stating that AMD is planning a $10 price decrease which will lower the RX 470's price to $170.

Right now the GTX 1050Ti's rumoured specifications suggest that the GTX 1050Ti will have lower performance than the RX 470, though this will not be confirmed until the GPU releases later this month.

AMD's Polaris lineup of GPUs has always been marketed as offering great value for money, with this price decrease and the lowering of Oculus' PC system requirements for the oculus Rift gives AMD a great opportunity to gain some market share in the run up to Christmas.

It should never ever have been that much. They had a potential winner on their hands and what do they do? price it so close to the 480 that you'd have to be bloody barking to buy a 470.

If they price this the same, the 470 will definitely be the better buy in 95% of all situations than a 1050ti. The extra VRAM alone is a pretty convincing argument too as even games at 1080 can consume a lot if VRAM.Quote

Your right there fella tbh it should not have taken a 1050i release for them to price it correctlyQuote

Are those dollar amounts in USD?? Those quoted prices are WAAAY off if that is the case. Most 470's start around $200USD, 480 8GB models are pretty much minimum $250. The MSRP's seem to be just a marketing ploy now. It really throws the whole value spectrum off, especially when considering previous gen hardware in comparison if you don't need the hefty VRAM amounts.Quote

That's true, I feel like they were priced to high because of yields or just poor stock. So i don't blame AMD for the extra costs entirely as it's also Etailers too. I mean just look at the 1080 launch. That was horrible gouging!

MSRPs aren't the ploy. That's what AMD recommeds, but it's not a set rule, so Amazon and etc, increase costs to make more. On Newegg the 8gb 480s are generally only $10 more than MSRP, but all the popular models are way overpriced. I blame gouging on Newegg there. Like the Nitro is $279. That's ridiculous!Quote
