    If this is true then the card is in the same price range as Titan.
    Really disappointing.

    I never expected it to be cheap, but I suspect the website is possibly grossly overcharging, since at the moment they can!

    I'd say you're spot on. Happens regularly with preorders.

    Well actually if you go on the Swedish website, the R9 290X is 1191kr cheaper than the Titan. That's around $190. Not to mention it is supposed to perform the same/slightly better (Apparently). So I'd call that a significant undercut. The problem is that the Titan has always been too expensive, and a good GTX780 can get pretty close and those are a lot cheaper. Then again, people with that kind of money just want the best card they can get...

    Although the price info has not been shared to press, I'm very sure the pre-order price is massively over exaggerated.

    There are always a few people silly enough who pre-order. That store loves them.

    So it's sat between a 780 and a Titan? I'd have prefered to see them at least price match it against the 780's, although prices might still come down after the actual launch. I'll be waiting for non-reference cards anyway. Lets hope it performs as well as we expect.

    AMD shipped everything except the R9-290X to press. Should be next week I hope. Other then that I really can't share anything else as you can understand.

    S!

    Looks like around 830€..Not too bad, but I suspect they charge premium out of that in Webhallen.

    No way am I spending more than £350 on a Graphics card, you only have to buy a new one within two years any ways.
