Eh?

R9 285 = $250
R9 280X = $250
R9 290 = $250

What price difference?

Nevertheless, not sure why anyone would pickup a Tonga over Tahiti or Hawaii...

970 is the real winner here.
Aussie prices 960 - $289 (Galax brand) to $359 ( Gigabyte brand)
970 - $459 ( Galax) to $549 ( Asus )
980 - $699 (Galax) to $849 (Asus strix) and $999 ( Asus Poseidon Platinum )
Insane even compared to Canada !

Was looking at one of these for my spare Steam PC but might just grab a used 280x for under $200. Seems to be better value right now.

I guess I just don't see where this card fits in. With the 280x around 180 and the r9 290 around 220-240 this card makes no sense.

Other than to make money for Nvidia and it's partners I too am struggling to see where this card fits in . As I said earlier it is coming up like an overpriced 950 Ti rather than a bona fide 960 . it just falls too far short .

So it's back to waiting. I don't play to update until a week or two before the Witcher 3 is released. Maybe it will be out by then.. If not I'll just keep my eye on the 970. If the price ever drops at or below 250 I will have a new card.

Why is this concept so hard for the majority to understand?
