now, on to how the r9 290x overclocks and its maximum overclock potential in benchmarks, now thats something im interested in, my titans need a bit of competition, my 7970s and 780s just dont compare
also, thinking the titan will EOL at $1k usd aswell since nvidia will probably gouge it to the very end, then drop the 780s price to compete with 290x lol
TITAN will highly likely to go EOL. 290X is already over 250w TDP limit. So Nvidia is more than likely to release GTX785/790 to retaliate, may be 2688 @ 1GHz @ 7Ghz memory, >250w TDP. it is not hard for Nvidia as they already a few months after TITAN release, GK110 now would probably have better binned than TITAN by now.
however if mantel are providing serious performance bump to AMD, Nvidia will really need work really hard to overcome this gap with a much more superior hardware. The same thing how they did with Geforce 2 GTS vs 3dfx Voodoo 5 on glide.
Honestly I am looking for just 10-20% performance bump at best for mantel. It won be a super bump. not 100% lol:rolleyes:
I am just glad I pick 7790 over Nvidia's GTX650Ti.
