The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER may seem enticing with its US$229 price tag, but the AMD Radeon RX 590 currently has the last word on value for money. The Polaris-based GPU can be had for practically US$100 right now and remains powerful enough for 1080p gaming.

The AMD Radeon RX 590 may be a two-generations old GPU, but it remains powerful enough for some decent 1080p gaming. The card launched at US$279 last year but has steadily been dropping in price since. Now, AMD partners have gone even further, aligning with the announcement of the GTX 16 SUPER series.

Irrespective of whether the timing is coincidental or deliberate, the deals that AMD is offering with RX 590 purchases effectively make it a US$100 card. As Hot Hardware originally reported, add-in board (AIB) RX 590 GPUs are currently going for between US$189.99 and US$209.99 on Amazon and Newegg. The cards at thees prices are as follows:
