Radeon R9 290X Accidentally Priced at Online Retailer

Though we still don't have a release date, Newegg has priced AMD's upcoming Radeon R9 290X at $729.99 before tax. TechPowerUp reports that an MSI reference design got its own store page with redacted pricing but that the HTML page for the page revealed the pricing. This means the high-end R9 200X will likely carry a $699 price tag.

 

AMD unveiled its new Radeon R9 290X last week in Hawaii, describing the R9 and R7 series as 'the new GPUs for a new era in graphics.' The press NDA is scheduled to expire on October 15, just over two weeks from now. This expiration date was noted on the slides that AMD showed during a recent press event. Even though it's possible the NDA expiration date doesn't align with the date when the first cards will be hitting the market, it's possible AMD would want units available the same day consumers are reading reviews. Newegg's page doesn't offer any indication as to when the R9 290X will launch.
