All settings maxed 1080p and eyefinity 1080p.
290X in uber mode (higher voltage, fan speed, power target etc. so possibly higher clocks than normal mode)
E: downloading the charts now.

For some reason it seems that it's a crapshoot. I think in texture heavy titles the GTX TITAN is better by virtue of the 224 TMUs (GTX 780 has 192 , GTX 770 has 128) vs R9 290X's 176.

Its all in the marketing tactics, price it lower and your average consumer will think the 780 is better because its more expensive.
Price it too low and you lose profits, the complexity of finding a sweet spot price for a product is beyond your imagination.
AMD is using a smaller die , both companies must pay since both are fab-less. If it costs $550 for R9 290X (ShopBLT has a $570 R9 290X listing) and R9 290 costs about as much as GTX 770 4GB (or $400-500) instead of GTX 780's $650 you'll see some major competing.
Anyhow, I'm interested in the ~90% enabled R9 290 cut from the R9 290X and a possible 1920 CUDA GK110 GTX 770 Ti... (because GK104 ,GK106, GK107 are for gaming/graphics only pretty much) not these astronomically priced flagships. As a rule of thumb if you sell something on Ebay/Craigslist for more than $600 expect a 1099-MISC form reporting capital gains.

Pretty good overall
See above. Maybe it uses more than 4GB frame buffer (TITAN is 6GB VRAM) or somehow the extra texture mapping units give it an edge. It doesn't have to be a fluke necessarily.Edited by AlphaC - 10/21/13 at 12:15pm
