That was the conclusion in several reviews I have read.
Though if the rumours are really true, and they will produce very few cards, the price makes sense. Those who want them will buy them, stocks will be done, and there will be no need to reduce prices, since there won't be any cards.
You can see that stores already cleared the first shipment. If second shipment will be just as little, they will clear those as well.
If AMD make total of 20-30K of those cards, they will all sell.
