Way I see it, the R9 cards will be +/- 10% of the 780. Lower end, budget versions in the -5 to -10%, the spiff Ghz editions, +5 to +10% at stock speeds. Just makes too much sense to think otherwise based off of what little we know that has proven to be factual. While AMD is fitting more, if the page refferenced is close to true, its not that much more, and the ability to pack things into smaller spaces is getting better by the day. Still draw more power than a 780, but I have no doubt it will come with a heck of a games bundle. In bundling games, AMD is always a winner compared to Nvidia lately.
As to the Titan: Not a chance at stock speeds. But, and this is a big but, a moderate to heavy OC on the R9 should get it to Titan stock speeds no problem.
Agian, based off of opinion feed from the various rumour sites out there.
As to Price? Who knows. AMD lately has rocked Nvidia's world on Price/Performance, so I can see it being cheaper than a 780, but not by a lot.
Fair disclosure: I happen to own a pair of Titans, so I do have a horse in this race. But the reasons I picked the Titan was partially for the e-peen, and partially I didn't want to have to dick around with new GPU's for 2 to 3 years... If I had waited long enough for when the 7990's went on sale for 600-800 bucks like they did last month, I would have gotten a pair of those!
