Well from a specs perspective the Titan is = to 2x GTX 660 Tis
Twice the shaders (2688 vs 1344), ROPS (48 vs 24), TMUs (224 vs 112), memory bus-width (384-bit vs 192-bit) etc. Granted it's not clocked quite as high though.
This new Radeon will apparently be slightly less
than equal to 2x 7870 Tahiti LEs. Twice the ROPs (64 vs 32), and memory bus interface (512-bit vs 256-bit) but not quite twice the shader count (2812 vs 1536) or number of TMUs ( 176 vs 96). It's also clocked slower.
So I'm going to guestimate since the 660 Ti edges the Tahiti LE, The Titan will beat the 290X, particularly once OC'd.
