AMD Radeon R9 290X Video Cards Sold Out Online In Just Hours

Last night at 12:01 am ET we posted up our review on the AMD Radeon R9 290X video card and went looking around for who had them in stock. It took Newegg a bit to get the cards listed, but at around 12:30am ET they had most available for purchase.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Sold Out

If you look at Newegg now you won’t find any AMD Radeon R9 290X video cards available for purchase.  Legit Reviews contacted AMD and they said that more are on the way, but declined to comment how many were available for the launch today. AMD said this was a hard launch, but we don’t know if they had 500 cards for sale or 50,000. AMD did inform us that Tiger Direct had the MSI Radeon R9 290X BF4 Edition card left in-stock, so if you are looking for one you are in luck and it is priced at $579.99!

    I just bought the battlefield 4 edition from amazon and I own 2 gtx 780′s :p this will be for my HTPC build and it will be 4k ready.

    Are the manufactures all playing it Uber-safe these days?

    I mean EVERY PS4 sold out in Japan in 5-minutes of going on sale.

    It will be a bloody fight to get a GTX 780 Ti in the first month, if it has a real cooling solution like an Asus or something.

      well it depends on how much it is priced and how many people willing to acquire it…

      It will use a reference cooler just like the 780 and Titan, it’s a good cooler and there is no need to make any other coolers for them.

    love to see the looks on their faces when they found out they actually bought a jet engine instead.

      Can you re-use the heat and sound to create a small power station from it?

      Supposedly it really IS super loud according to the PC Gamer review. But the performance / price is much better than anything Nvidia has right now. It outperforms the Titan and costs less than half! :D
