Your guess is as good as anybody's at this stage, but from early leaks it would appear it's very close.

while im a gtx titan owner, but i really hope it will be better than the titan so that some competition gets to the market, maybe then the titan price can go a little bit down so i can sli those babies, or maybe i can sell the titan and get the new r9 290x since its gonna be much cheaper, maybe the amount of money i get from selling my used titan would be enough to buy me a new r9 290x.

but honestly i dont think so, if amd itself targets the r9 290x at the gtx 780, what do u think that means, why not target the titan, are they afraid of being embarrassed?
