What price do you want to see the R9 290x at?

What price do you think it will come out at? What price is reasonable for this card to you after seeing some benchmarks?

Personally, I think a price of around 500 would be enticing for me. It will perform at around 2x 7950s which comes to $400 so around there would be good for me.

I think it's releasing at around $650-$700, as of the 10th it's rumored the card will be $699.99

If it's over $600, I'd consider that a failure.

Is its release still pegged at around BF4's release date? Do high-profile GPUs like this usually have so little information about them?

That said, what are the rumors for the nVidia's lineup, anything worth watching?

If they pull a smart move like they did with the R9 280X, they'll price it to be cheaper than the GTX780.

Ergo, offering the customer performance per $ value that Nvidia can't beat.

Even if you give up sales on Titan class cards, the amount of profit from such a small % of the entire GPU market isn't worth it compared to lower performing cheaper tier GPU brackets.

Economies of scale is what's important if AMD wants to be profitable.

I think $550 will be a good price. AMD could charge up to $650 and still have a better deal than the GTX 780, but neither card is worth that much tbh.

GTX 780 = $650 MSRP

If I was to guess, based on leaked rumors, R9 290X should go for $600 and be able to perform close to Titan levels but not beat it.

That should more than cement the R9 290X's performance per $ value which is good enough for me IMO.

Who cares about the best performing GPU, unless you plan on buying it, it really has no meaning to you as an individual, what has meaning is what GPU you buy and how much perf it gives you for the amount of money you're willing to spend.
