agreed, they definitely did something different this time around if they think they can get away with this price point. especially for a pre-order.

Lets just hope they aren't treating their mantle performance and the reason why this GPU is better than nvidia's. While I respect AMD for trying to find more efficient ways of doing things, I don't like that they often price things based on a handful of benchmarks.

Do you really have a need to replace a 6950 right now? I figured what you have is still more than good enough for most games, especially considering the drivers ought to be pretty polished at this point. I personally have 2 HD5750s, which is worse than what you have, and they do a good job so far.

Wow that's costly. I was under the assumption these we're going for ~$450. I wanted to pick one up because the price would be down to earth.

That was false assumption... How can a card like this be only 450$? That's just not what people expected.

650$ would be really nice, i hope we will see some reduction soon enough.

The price should drop within a month or so after release, especially if you can find it without the BF4 bundle. Still way out of my league though. lol

The pre-order prices are probably the only ones that are sky high, id lmfao if when the normal cards start getting in, they are about 100+ less

Um, ya i really do.. BF3 at 1680x1050 with everything on "high" is getting 80fps max while dipping into the high 40's (in gulf of oman).. Im moving up to a ultrawide 29" monitor in afew months... There is no way a 6950 would be able to handle that... With BF4 just around the corner I want to make sure I dont have dips under 60fps.. I could get by with 2 7970's but 1 290x for now should work and get a 2nd when they drop to the 350~400 range.

$600+ pricing would be ultimate consumer trolling: first commenting that AMD does not believe in Titan price tags, and then pricing the 290X OVER the stock 780 according to projected performance levels.

I am sure that hilbert will have us covered on that.

I will put it threw its pases overclock wise just like my titan and 780 to see where it lands.
After I might be able to provide some info on aftermarket cooling,bios mods and voltage but lets see how it goes.

Well considering nvidia's maxwell incoming, even the console's profit will not save AMD from bankruptcy if their incoming gen isn't going to give them enough money for continuable lifespan. According to that, they cannot give you their top-end gpu less than their opponent's high-end.
