What I can tell you is that SAPPHIRE is going to have our traditional custom solutions and this cards are going to rock.

I hope the 290/290X VaporX is better than the VaporX4890 I had. I had to RMA the card twice due to the cooler rattling like a cowbell and there was no voltage control. I really wanted to love that card, but ended up keeping it for one of the shortest periods I ever kept a graphics card.

I think if a company does that to you, then they succeeded in messing with the market for the better!
Sorry, but I would have had buyers remorse from day one with the Lightning 780. Arguably one of the worse 780's released and yet the most expensive!
