My expectations are that AMD will build up GPU with same/similar amount of TMUs and ROPs as Titan, with slightly higher stock frequency. Usually businessmen are comparing "stock" products and dont care about OC potential... And thats sufficient for them to advertise Hawaii as the fastest GPU on the market...
Good points. But we are on OCN. Max overclocking potential is everything.
If 290x is matches the Titan clock for clock or slightly higher then that is great news. Very nice marketing. But for those who wish to get the most overclocking out of their gpus, Tahiti will have a hard time keeping up with GK110.
On a side note, I'm more curious about the 290. Will AMD pull a Nvidia with the 290x being like the Titan and the 290 being the 780 and a measily 10% performance gap?
