be $500 max and i guess i'll whine about this as much as i did when the titan and 780 launched when it launches and if this proves to be true.
Crysis 3 1080p no MSAA: Titan ahead by almost 9%
Crysis 3 1080p 4x MSAA: R9 290x ahead by 11%
Crysis 3 1600p no MSAA: Titan ahead by less than 1%, within margin of error
Crysis 3 1600p 4x MSAA: R9 290x ahead by 11%
I am tired and sleepy and not going to do the entire graph, but if this graph is true, Titan has serious vram bottlenecking problems in comparison to R9 290x. I knew GK104 had massive issues because Tom's found 7870 memory bottlenecked AFTER GK104 did with their 1080p 8xMSAA testing, but I didn't expect GK110 to fall on its face too.
The gap should get bigger at higher resolution, no doubt. I'd imagine triple monitor setup would have Titan falling behind by a lot, and you might be able to get two R9 290xs for the price of a single Titan.
