AMD Radeon GPU price update for Scrypt mining

 

Cryptocurrency-fueled demand has driven the price of AMD Radeon cards up. Considering the R9 290X carries an official $550 MSRP, the recent price hits $749.98. If you are still considering building a mining rig with R9 290X or even the R9 290, you might want to reconsider, as the R9 280X is still the best value for performance card at the moment. I have created a short list of currently shipping AMD Radeon cards from Amazon with its performance, and if you have Amazon Prime, you can potentially enjoy the free shipping.
