AMD announced its first new desktop graphics product for the year, the Radeon HD 7790. The company recently made it clear to us that it won’t be introducing a new GPU family any time soon, at least not before October, but that doesn’t mean it can’t do patchwork to its existing product stack. The company seems least bothered with NVIDIA’s recent GTX Titan Launch and finds that its “Never Settle Reloaded” bundles give its products an edge over NVIDIA’s offerings, and with a bouquet of game titles under development that are optimized for its GPUs, things look like smooth sailing. In all the noise, AMD conveniently neglected the sub-$200 market.
