I hope it has no DX9 issues. That's why I never got the 7970 - alleged issues with DX9. I want performance in new games, but if it can't handle old games competently then AMD knows where they can shove it.

I play plenty of old dx9 games stil with my 7970. It's not that the card has problems with dx9, it's that most people don't know that dx11 doesn't include the libraries from dx9 and below, and with all these new machines, most people just install the most up to date version. You have to actually go download dx 9.0c and install that as well, and everything works great.

Isn't Titan LE the GTX 780? If not, then what purpose does it serve? Titan Ultra with full 2880 GK110 is possible since it already exists in the Quadro line, but it won't compete with the buzz surrounding AMD's Mantle, and especially not at $1000+

If I'm Nvidia, Titan Ultra doesn't solve the problem. People thought AMD's announcement was fail until Mantle was mentioned. Titan Ultra is not going to take any hype away from Mantle unless Mantle only adds 10-15% which Nvidia could add with more shaders in a full GK110.

True enough. While Nvidia can throw more horsepower into the market with a Titan Ultra, it wouldn't solve the problem. The problem here isn't that we don't have the horsepower for games, it is the utilization of that power that is the problem. Proper optimization should be the focal point for the new generation of consoles that would, in turn, give better pc ports.
My only fear is that AMD won't push this onto developers and it fails before it begins, or AMD uses it as their own proprietary feature. Time will tell.

I just noticed that says "Winning at all the major price points," Yet the Firestrike results don't show it winning against GTX 780. Either AMD doesn't consider $650 "major" or they mislabeled the 290 as a 290X and left out the real 290X. They could mean because of Mantle, but why show Firestrike results?
