Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition Graphics Cards Up for Pre-order

Online retailers are beginning to take pre-orders for AMD's Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 Edition bundle, which combines an R9 290X graphics card, with a Battlefield 4 Premium copy, which gives you access to not just the game, but its entire trunk of expansion packs. The bundle is sold directly by AMD, and doesn't bear any AIB partner markings. Swedish retailer Webhallen.com listed the bundle for 7,299 SEK (including all applicable taxes and shipping), which roughly converts to US $1,145. The store page also mentions that it will begin shipping the pre-orders on the 11th of October, 2013. Based on the 28 nm "Hawaii" silicon, the Radeon R9 290X features 2,816 GCN stream processors, 176 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. It features full support for DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.3, and Mantle.

Prepare for the price gouging!! (Not aimed at AMD - aimed at e-tailers).

I'll not lie - frankly - on spec, I kinda want one but i need to know the grubby details like PCB construction, voltages etc.
I'm waiting for the day it releases and then people suddenly find out its voltage locked like Titan and 780. I'll piss myself.

yup, looks like someone forgot to clean up the html



look at the yellow area below coming soon, that's where that element with the price is, but it has no displayed content. The $729.99 is so that scripting code can easily access the price

So that's it and it was obvious from the beginning guys:
The 290 will be 599$ and the 290X will be 699$. Quite expensive if you ask me...

I wonder what's the actual performance gap between those 2.
