AMD Radeon R9 290 starts listing in price search engines
AMD should be releasing the AMD Radeon R9 290 non X model by tomorrow. The price is still unknown but everybody was expecting this product to be sub 500 EUR. EU based price search engine Geizhals now is listing the product for as low as 475 EUR (incl VAT). Meaning that in the end you may expect a more typical 449 EUR price tag. Perhaps even lower.
