The UK price of the new high-end AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card has been revealed.

The card is out now priced at £449.99 (including VAT) in the UK, undercutting rivals Nvidia GTX 780 3GB (around £550) and the top-end Nvidia GTX Titan (around £800).

Earlier this month rumours circulated that Nvidia would lower the price of its Titan to compete with AMD 290X, but senior sources told PCR Nvidia wouldn't need to lower the price.

AMD announced its new range of R7 and R9 graphics cards last month.

The 290X has also been a hit with critics.
