Make your judgment then, since the rumors have varied from "Titan killer" to "around a 780" and prices from $550 to $1000, though the ones predicting 4GB of VRAM on a 512-bit bus did prove correct, so they may have some merit. There's just a lot of inconsistency out there.
I am sorry, but I have to call this. I have seen this a few times on here and just don't understand how people keep spreading misinformation.GTX 760GTX 670
The performance of the two is very similar, yes. They are both GK104, yes, but they aren't they "same thing with a different label."
We also don't know for sure about the other cards from the AMD line being exact rebrands. There are a number of rumors flying around and nothing has been officially confirmed from AMD as to what the specs are going to be. I agree, it is very likely they will be very similar to what is out there, but we don't know what other modifications have been made. This all should be laid to rest in the coming week+.
