R9 290 availability check

Written by Fudzilla staff



Not bad, could be better

AMD’s R9 290 launched yesterday and it’s creating a lot of buzz thanks to its $399 price tag and its very loud cooler.

Retailers rushed to list the cards yesterday morning and at least some of them are available. Prices start at €359 in Europe but more than half of all retailers who listed the cards don’t have any in stock – i.e. they sold out or they never had any to begin with. Two overclocked cards are available as well, from PowerColor and VTX3D. You can check out our favourite DACH search engine came up with here.

It’s a bit different in the US. Newegg has four cads from PowerColor, Sapphire, XFX and MSI – all but the MSI are available and prices start at $399.

So while first batch of the pricier R9 290X flew off the shelves in a matter of hours, there appear be more Pro cards in stock. Either the channel got a bigger batch, or people are waiting for custom cards, which wouldn’t be surprising given what reviewers had to say about the stock cooler.
