Nice. $550 equates to around 90k.

how much the 290(i'm asking about 290 not the 290X) going to be?.

How can it giv anyone a heart attack ? This is good..the only reason that fuking Nvidia even dropped prices IS BECAUSE OF AMD..just shows that those fukers were bleeding the customers dry with exuberant prices because there was no competition..until now

So because of AMD low prices for all..As I said above....its a Win- Win for EVERYBODY

TBH NVIDIA is going to lose their customer base with R7 and R9 GPUs because the price for performance is higher in them than any of the Nvidia GPUs. to ease things up only they wanted to cut the price off from the existing Nvidia GPUs and they introduced a "clown" called GTX 780TI. plus,
AMD + Mantle = NVIDIA

so the future is going to be amazing :)

I'm neutral as in I go for the better card irrespective of chip maker. This time round it is clear victory for AMD. Cutting prices is actually accepting that they are now not competitive and they can do nothing but drop prices. Also the GTX 780 Ti is a desperate move.

What I am waiting to see is if Mantle can live up to the hype. If it does then NVIDIA is in deep trouble.

Yes,that is right.
Although Nvidia introduce things like Phyx,they are not that sucessful,but Mantle seems very promising than all of what Nvidia introduce.
Maybe Nvidia will also introduce something to tackle Mantle when Mantle start to make a impact.

Even with price cuts only the GTX 780 seems be competitive with AMD prices vs performance.
