What a joke. $499 CAD... (WITH REBATES No LESS). Hopefully, some of the lower end models like the Pulse, or Power Colour Dragon's come in at $350 CAD or so.

So that pricing puts in the same price category as a GTX 1070Ti. That's a pretty tough act to match performance wise. Be interesting to see if AMD manages it, and also won't that cannibalise AMD's own RX Vega 56 GPU, which also costs about that?

People should note that this is a 3rd party seller on Newegg, not sold by Newegg itself. I find that 3rd party sellers are typically bad for price gouging (same as on Amazon), probably trying to take advantage of limited availability at launch. I'm pretty confident Newegg will have it listed for less when they get it.

This card needs to sell for under 300$ u.s.. If it's only maybe 25% better fps than a 1060 then it can't cost over twice as much lol. 6gb 1060s selling now for no more than 250$ and that's kind of the high side.

Maybe I would consider this at 280$ for a nice gaming x model or equivelant. If they don't want all the current 480/580/570/1060/1050ti users to wait on a 2060 or buy used 1070ti or a new 2070 then the price better be damn competitive

That's a BS price. Just some shady vendor trying to get people to click buy now and they'll fill the order later after they buy it from some other retailer for cheap.

It's 250 CAD max. It's mining hash-rate is probably a bit higher than the RX 570 with bios flash, but probably less than the Vega 56.
