I'd almost be inclined to believe it more when it shows up there as they have done some really good internet detective work in the past. This looks really promising, I might be buying this when it comes out.

How about ~20% that gets it close to the 780 right? Cores + ROPs + GCN 1.1

Also it would be dumb to release a card slower than nvidias fastest.

This. It won't beat GTX 780, but will come close to it.

And who cares how it looks, I would get a MSI or Sapphire version anyway.

I don't think they need a card to beat TITAN.  They just need a card that trades blows with the GTX 780.

 

Give us a card that does that at stock with unlocked voltage=WIN!!!!

I think maybe he meant the 780, lol. No single GPU currently touches the TItan, but then again, that's a very select market it's targeted at... let's be honest, how many of us drop ten bills on a GPU? The 7990s give it a fair battle, especially that ridiculously over the top Ares II from ASUS, but I haven't personally come across anyone that was willing to drop $1,500 for one.

every time I add a date for future cards that begins with a 1st, its a guess and has nothing to do with rumors, and I do believe it may be revealed at E3, but it hasn't been confirmed yet officially "directly" as in "we will be revealing the new hd8000 series at E3"

again 1st's are placeholders

I welcome a reference card with those style fans because they are usually al lot quieter than a blower

And aren't the ref. cards of higher quality parts still ? I could finally get 1 (not that I plan to)

LoL, people are so superficial. People are more concerned with the card being "ugly" than the performance of the card.

If you people haven't noticed, almost all reference AMD cards are ugly. I'll be waiting for a MSI Lightning model.
