US retailer Newegg.com leaked pricing of its reference design Radeon R9 290X graphics cards. An MSI-branded reference-design card got its own store page with its pricing redacted, but Newegg did a sloppy job at that. On close inspection of the HTML code of the page, we discovered the pricing value intended for that page to be US $729.99 (excl. taxes). Given that Newegg.com tends to add $10 to $30 on MSRP, pricing of the R9 290X is likely to have been set at $699 (excl. taxes).
