Hah. If AMD users call it different when it has different clocks, I'm going to haunt them 'till the end of time for calling 'nonsense' 770 is not just a 680 when the VRAM is different technology and the chip has an improved Stepping.

it's a rebrand with lower power consumption, higher memory clock, and a higher base clock... so it's a tweek... not a pure rebrand. sorta like what nvidia did with their refresh. not a full refresh like nvidia (who got a nice boost in performance with their boost 2 tech, unless amd improved their boost/turbo i doubt you'll see nvidia like jumps in performance), not a true rebrand. the r9-280X should slightly out perform a GHz ed 7970.

When did I call it "different" (even though it may be slightly different)? I just stated that we really don't have confirmed details about the card, and as such it is a bit early to be coming to any conclusions.

It was at the start when they showed each gpu and its specs. More specifically during the 15 second 290x showing.

Even though it may be a rebrand, even it is is 1% better, it makes it worth it based on how they(AMD) decides to price it. Is it worth it? Yes. Will it be beneficial to purchase a 7970 instead of the new model? Yes. Just depends on what your goals are for the card. Point is....AMD will be offereing a better "bang" for your buck. All Nvidia can do is offer something in the near future that outperform AMD after December and continue to outperform them afterwards. Will they be able to do it? Yes. But if the Titan is all they can muster, then they won't see much business if they continue to offer a $1000 card for consumers.

Only a percentage of gamers can/will allow themselves to purchase it. So its on Nvidia to offer a competitive priced card that can compare at this point forward.

I'm assuming the R9 280X will be more "future proof as well" in a sense. You'll get stuff quicker than the 7xxx crowd and hopefully the whole AstoundSound will be native to the R9's and hopefully the series is just an all around improvement, until benches start popping up, we won't really know for sure how much an improvent these are of the 7series...
