Not only should it be on par on PRICE as the R9 290X, it should be on par with it as far as performance (since it is faster than the GTX 780). But more importantly, by the rumors of launch day it runs MUCH cooler and consumes even LESS power than the GTX 780 ... with already uses a LOT less power than the R9 290X.

nVidia's announcement today was leveled SQUARELY at the R9 290X and I'm sure the boys at AMD are in panic mode now.

UGH, so you take these pretend prices and performance and scream it from the roof tops when it's nvidia yet when it's AMD you have this to say??

Then can you also tell me what the price that nVidia is CUTTING the price of the Titan to by the time the R9 290X is ACTUALLY available?

Until you can tell me what BOTH of those numbers are, please, don't even both sitting there and trying to tell people that you know that the AMD card is lower price. rolleyes.gif

As far as speed goes: 8 month old Titan > as yet available R9 290X > 3 month old GTX 780.

That is pretty PATHETIC when you actually think about it.


YEAAH, your opinion is valid...
I'm back baby!!!
