Gotta know where to shop wink.gif. http://www.shopblt.com/search/order_id=%2521ORDERID%2521&s_max=25&t_all=1&s_all=RADEON+R9+280

Then again I really have no idea if that site is trustworthy, but anyways, my point is that the retailers are shooting up the prices, not availability, though assuming they were at MSRP prices, there would certainly be availability issues. It's not going to take them too long to run out of people that will do anything for a 290 or 290x, a year is way too ridiculous. 2 months max for semi-normal prices, unless litecoin farming miraculously become easier to mine/prices for litecoins go up. Nvidia is going to be releasing some of their 800 series soon, you better believe AMD is going to be feeling the burn from the competition, and if not, we'll all just buy Nvidia cards, pretty much a win win for gamers willing to wait a month, yet a huge loss for anyone impatient.

They're out of stock, and back ordered nearly 170 cards. XD

At least there's ETAs so you know roughly when they're getting new shipments in (which it isn't working right now). I think their shipments were getting in like 1/15, so that's not a terrible wait in comparison to waiting for Newegg/Amazon to lower prices.

I'd say the biggest disadvantage is that you can't order a refund nor replacement through them, Newegg generally did the one month thing, though the manufacturer will always replace/fix it anyways.

I wish I could wait for Newegg, but it's been so long. Also the Non-reference 290/290xs for Gigabyte cards are up, but they look a little too expensive in comparison to the MSRP, so they aren't really worth it nor worth mentioning.

Factoring in the backorders and ordered supply roughly 20 cards will be available on the 16th, and the rest on the 29th.

I looked earlier today. wink.gif

About 50 total have to yet to be ordered, so yeah.

There's a local place in my area selling a few reference 290x for $525 down from $600. The 290s are $550 though. Waiting to see if they change the 290 price. I see newegg dropped prices on the 290Xs too. I think 290Xs will be normal soon, 290s not so much.

Nvidia will price gouge knowing everyone is buying r9 for mining. Gamers still will suffer. Almost like nvidia has no competition

That's a possibility too, AMD cards are ridiculously expensive, Nvidia can either slap AMD in the face or be up there with AMD in ridiculously overpriced cards. Considering it's the retailers and not the manufacturers that are price gouging though, I don't think it's going to be quite as bad as you think it is. I can only imagine what Nvidia's reputation would be if they were the ones setting the ridiculous premiums and not Newegg/Amazon etc, though that isn't too fair for me to say considering on AMD's website they themselves have ridiculous prices for R9s.

Supply and demand. When AMD or nvidia release faster next gen its at a high price. When competition releases its next gen the cards insta drop $100+
