It's a little crazy that this is newsworthy, but AMD's full lineup of Radeon R9 graphics cards is finally available online at suggested e-tail prices. Various members of the family have been in short supply and selling at inflated prices since last year. Supply constraints and increased demand from cryptocurrency miners were apparently to blame, but the situation seems to have been resolved. AMD says the "madness" is over—and that the current, intended prices will remain stable moving forward.
At least right now, Newegg has plenty of Radeons selling at AMD's official launch prices, plus a handful that are even cheaper. Let's go with a bulleted list:
So, there you have it. The Radeon R9 family is finally whole and available to gamers as AMD intended. Let's hope this sort of development isn't newsworthy with future generations.
