Is that a BF4 bundle? I can't tell.

I'm convinced NV & AMD are consorting. & it probably will be as fast as a stock titan @ 950 some mhz.

RAM companies do it all the time.

Could be true. Based on it's performance and the opposition's pricing of similar product(s). If that is the final price i won't be getting it as that would probably mean $1000 AU. But i'm pretty sure when amazon don't know the price they deliberately over shoot it and refund the difference, pretty sure they did this with the wiiU. I'm hopeful but not confident.
I'm back baby!!!

Count me in on this belief as well. It's mighty convenient how things have turned out. Nvidia releases Titan at 1000$, then the 780 months later at 650$ making it look great. Then given time AMD prepares the competition and launches at 650-700$ for flagship and 550$ for second tier (290) thus raising GPU prices across the board despite having competition and them stating they weren't going to price it that high.

It's very much Nvidia & AMD vs the consumer.

Hope all the drama queens in this site will realise what the rest of us already know:

you cannot hold your breath long enough to hurt yourself, so...just be patient. It is a stupid card after all, and it will be out soon enough.
Thought we are here to enjoy ourselves, and not live in artificial agony. rolleyes.gif

+1 +1 +1!!! Still not fast enough, but one step closer! I'll re-up on GPU's when it's three or four steps forward.

Welp, Amazon rarely changes prices on pre-orders, so they generally put what is guaranteed to be the price.

 

So looks like the Newegg leak was perfectly legitimate @ $729.99. Contained the common Newegg markup, and Amazon contains the better pricing of the two. Basically means that there is pretty much no chance of a $549.99 R9-290X.

 

 

Wonder where Stay Puft is? :lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen:

The benchmarks that most likely are in majority advertising AMD. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see Titan destroyed. But truth is truth.
