The real problem here is that Nvidia can still launch a 790 with 780TI levels of DP and sell it for $1500 in which case it will easily outsell the 295X2.

I always wonder how some people justify these prices....

As if this card wouldn't turn a profit at $1000, hell, I bet this card would turn a profit at $500

If a modern motherboard and cpu, with way more functions, can be had by the consumer for about $400.....what would lead one to reason that the "production cost" of gpu's on a graham cracker, with a toy's R us cooler, is so high?

I'm not justifying the price, I'm saying I'm wondering why people think that a card with two engines on it should cost about the same as the single engine card.

Lets hope they do, would be sad if the only viable option for a dual gpu was an AMD product.

$1.5k does not seem so bad for a 295x frys has the 290x at $899

Ok and?? That is just stupid Fry's pricing based on Gougegg prices from months ago. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007709%20600473871&IsNodeId=1&name=Radeon%20R9%20290X You can find them there for 570-650 for most models.

Or you could just buy 4 290x's at a cheaper price and get better performance...
