Well, I will laugh at you if AMD releases the R9 290 @ $449 rather than the already publicly spoken price of $399 for continuing to talk senseless smack.780 ti was announced to be $700, that's the only thing concrete right now. NV is going to gouge for that (extra?, we don't know yet) performance, like usual.
He's talking 290, not 290x. 290x clearly beats the 780 by 10%+ already. The 290 was leaked to tie/slightly beat the 780 too.
If AMD sticks to their word and releases it as they listed in Hawaii...and it does perform as well as the 780 with the new driver update...then they deserve praise.
