AMD Radeon R7 and R9 300 series pricing leaks (and it's more than before)

Swedish tech site SweClockers got its hands on the suggested retail pricing of AMD's upcoming Radeon R7 and Radeon R9 3xx series graphics cards. Unfortunately, the leaked prices are in Swedish krona so it's kinda hard to estimate how representative this is for the US or eurozone pricing.

After factoring out the 25% Swedish VAT and converting the figures to US dollars you get something like this. I'm not entirely sure how accurate this is so take these figures with a grain of salt.


If the pricing is accurate it seems retail price of several models may go up considerably versus current street pricing. A card like the Radeon R9 285 with 2GB GDDR5 memory can be bought for as low as $199.99 whereas the new price for the corresponding R9 380 with 2GB would be $240.

The same thing is true for the Radeon R9 390 and 390X, compared to the R9 290 and 290X cards they're about $100 more expensive, but in this case you do get 4GB GDDR5 memory more than before. These two cards will create a pretty odd discrepancy in AMD's video card lineup as these two high-end cards will have double as much memory as the flagship Radeon Fury series, which comes with 4GB of the much faster High Bandwidth Memory (HBM).
At $480 the 390X is about $65 cheaper than the 290X was at launch a few years. It’s still about $100 more than the current street price for some 290X models, but once you consider the 8GB of VRAM, it’s about right for 290X 8GB. The same is true of the 390 as it’s nearly $100 more than the 290, but it does come with an extra 4GB of VRAM. Moving onto Tonga, the two R9 380 variants are priced competitively considering their VRAM endowment. The R9 370 4GB is interesting as it’ll be rare that it can make use of that extra 2GB of VRAM though the 2GB model is priced decently. Bonaire is pretty much where we expect to be.
