Are these AMD prices going to continue to stay on Newegg, etc?

$500 for a 94c card is extreme.

They will probably stay pretty high for awhile with the recent boom in the coin mining bandwagon. I'm just glad I got my 280x before this madness started since my 560 ti Hawk was getting old and overheating even after taking my OC off and running reference speeds.

I figured that, was going to buy 2 290s but at $500 each, might as well buy 780s

I hope not but they probably will stay high because a lot of people are jumping on the cryptocurrency mining bandwagon. It sucks, I just wanted to get a R9 290 for gaming. I was planning to spend about $400 but I was waiting to see what the non-reference coolers were like. Now the price of the R9 290's is $500 and its hard to find them in-stock. If I have to pay $500, I may just get a GTX 780.

At least right here not many people are interested. On the other side of the news, the price of the 780 hardly drop that they most non reference models are slightly more expensive than the R9 290x.

At least my old 6970 probably find a new life as bitcoin miner sometime soon.

They'll probably stay this high until the next major cryptocurrency crash, which at that point everyone will be trying to sell their mining hardware.

Yeah, I'm not in a hurry as I'm waiting for the non reference to arrive and compare to my mother options but might not even make a difference. I'll wait until Feb to see what is what, but I was cool with spending $900 for two non reference models to replace my Titan so I'll get better frames at 2560x1440 but meh, with this much increase I may as well pick up 2 780 tis

Just a guess, but I think prices will go down once the models with aftermarket coolers are released. This is assuming an assload are released.

If you haven't sold it, you're crazy.
