Thank NVIDIA For The AMD Radeon RX 5700 Price Cut!

This is what competition is all about! Thanks to the impending release of NVIDIA RTX SUPER cards, AMD has officially announced a substantial price cut to their Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700 cards!

Let’s take a look at those price cuts, and find out how it affects their price-performance value compared to the NVIDIA RTX SUPER cards!

 

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 Price Cut

Just a day before their official release, AMD is cutting $50 off both the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, and the Radeon RX 5700 XT. They are also cutting $30 off the Radeon RX 5700.

Difference -$50 (10%)
-$50 (11%) -$30 (8%)

This substantial price cut will make the Radeon RX 5700 cards more competitive against the NVIDIA RTX SUPER cards.

Good move, AMD! And how about a counter, NVIDIA? 😉

We have also prepared a number of local price analyses, before and after the Radeon RX 5700 price cut announcement :

How To Get The $425 Samsung Galaxy Note8 Discount!

If you are aching to buy the new Samsung Galaxy Note8, you will be glad to know that Samsung will be offering trade-ins and/or pre-order offers. In fact, they announced at the Galaxy Note8 Unpacked event that former Galaxy Note7 owners will be offered a special $425 (~RM 1,785) Samsung Galaxy Note8 discount!

This discount will come in real handy, as the Samsung Galaxy Note8 is priced at $929 (unlocked) in the United States and £869 in the UK. That works out to about RM 3,900 here in Malaysia, just a tad more than the Samsung Galaxy S8+.

So let’s take a closer look into the details of this special offer. This is a work in progress, as details are still scant. We will also add details of other trade-in offers and pre-order offers, as they are revealed.

Updated @ 2017-09-02 : Added three important notes on the Samsung Galaxy Note8 discount programme.

Originally posted @ 2017-08-26


 

A Thank You To Galaxy Note7 Owners

At the Samsung Galaxy Note8 Unpacked 2017 event, Samsung Mobile Communications President, DJ Koh explicitly acknowledged the mistakes they made with the ill-fated Galaxy Note7 phablet. He also thanked the former Galaxy Note7 owners for sticking with Samsung through the Galaxy Note7 recall.

As a reward for their loyalty and feedback, Samsung announced that former Samsung Galaxy Note7 owners in the United States will be offered an upgrade discount of up to $425 (~RM 1,785).

 

The Samsung Galaxy Note8 Discount Details

There are only two requirements for this special Galaxy Note8 discount – proof of purchase, and a qualifying trade-in device.

1. Proof Of Purchase

This offer is only applicable to those who have formerly purchased the Galaxy Note7. US customers can visit the special Samsung Galaxy Note8 discount page to key in their email address for validation. If you cannot be validated through your email address, you will need to provide proof of purchase (e.g. receipt, credit card bill, etc.)

2. Qualifying Trade-In Device

You must also have a qualifying trade-in device. In the United States, Samsung will be accepting these devices for the $425 Galaxy Note8 discount programme :

[adrotate group=”2″]

  • Samsung Galaxy Note 5
  • Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, S7, S7 edge and S7 active
  • Apple iPhone SE, iPhone 5 and above
  • LG V20, G4 and above
  • Google Pixel and Pixel XL

The device you trade in must be in “good condition”, which Samsung defines as :

  • Powers on and holds a charge,
  • Has a functioning display,
  • Has no breaks or cracks or other visible defects that go beyond normal wear and tear, and
  • Is not on a black list of any kind.

Finally, your device must also satisfy these additional requirements :

  • Has Reactivation Lock, Google Factory Reset Protection, or any other anti-theft locking software disabled, and
  • You must have performed a factory reset and removed all personal information from the device.

 

What About Other Countries?

At the moment, we can only confirm that this special Galaxy Note8 discount is only applicable to consumers in the US and Canada. There has been no official word on similar programmes in other countries, although we understand that Samsung is preparing similar offers in every country the Galaxy Note7 was sold in.

We reached out to Samsung Malaysia, and were told to “stay tuned” to their next Galaxy Note8 announcement on 5 September 2017. We think it is more than likely that there will be a similar special Galaxy Note8 trade-in offer for former Galaxy Note7 owners in Malaysia. The Samsung Galaxy Note7 was, after all, very popular and greatly missed by Samsung fans here in Malaysia.

 

Important Notes

There are a couple of important notes about this Galaxy Note8 discount programme :

Only With Samsung

This offer is only available exclusively with Samsung. You must apply directly with Samsung. Your telco, dealer, or local retail store may offer similar upgrade programmes, but they are unlikely to offer anything close to what Samsung is offering you.

Even if you purchased your qualifying device or the Galaxy Note7 from a telco, you can only get the Galaxy Note8 discount if you register with Samsung. In short – register with Samsung!

You May Not Get $425

Even though you own a qualifying device, you may not get all $425. Their discount you receive will vary from device to device. $425 is the maximum Samsung will offer for a qualifying device.

Fully Paid Up

The qualifying device you trade-in for the Galaxy Note8 discount must be fully paid for. If you are on an instalment plan, you must clear that instalment plan before you proceed. However, there may be situations where you may be permitted to continue paying your instalments, if it’s part of your telco plan, for example.
