    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.

    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.

    Looks like it will be £550 inc VAT in the UK then, toe to toe with the 780's
