Nvidia is most likely on an acquisition trail for talent and IP with its excess cash.
Don't get me wrong, AMD has done a commendable job with the new management, but let's not equate AMD's financial wherewithal with Nvidia's, because the comparison is that of David vs Goliath with Nvidia being the financial Goliath.

they need new talent in the driver dept. lol.

Price wise, sure, 8 months ago you could get this....for $450 more. The 780 is 10% worse and was $100 more expensive a mere 5 months ago. How someone perceives that is purely subjective, but in my mind, its a damn good deal for those jumping on the 290x wagon.

I urge you to read the reviews before running off with misinformation

I read all the reviews. 4K performance still sucks whether or not the 290X outperforms. The fps are so low that the "10-15%" difference is literally only 2 or 3 fps. And even those benchmarks reveal nothing because they're all using stock clocks and reference models. I just have a big problem with the fanboyism that saying AMD won something here. I'm disappointed with the 290X release. AMD hasn't released a new high end chip in two years and the best they could come out with is something debatably better or worse than whats already been out for a long time. I was hoping for another 9700 Pro type win over the green team that was a real game changer.

290X X-fire will be a great investment for people that want to save bills during the winter lachen.gif.

How does this even make sense?

There is no such thing as a 95c gpu LOL

The point is it is better than Titan.... That's all that matters. tongue.gif

I think I have made by upgrade decision.

Looking at this http://m.hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/60269-evga-geforce-gtx-780-classified/?page=3 review by hexus.
The Evga classified gtx780 Outperforms its bigger brother the Titan in every test by a fair amount. Really looking forward to maxxing crysis 3 at 1080p!

Unfortunately for me until AMD provides consistent support with the current versions of Xorg in Linux, it would take a lot for me to buy another AMD card. Since my primary OS is Arch Linux having to block or use separate repos to prevent Xorg from updating is a pain. That and dropping driver support for the couple cards that I did buy within a couple years after I bought them really did not help my overall experience.

Since I am planning on making a new rig, I was hoping this would happen. Unfortunately the prices aren't as low as I would like them to be, but I am willing to pay a premium for the better Linux support. Hopefully a good deal comes out later this year bringing the GTX 770 closer to $320.

Cheapest GTX 780 Is the Gigabyte WF3 @ £399 with 2 free games (Batman: Arkham Origins and Splinter Cell). I think nVidia has actually done enough regarding price competiveness with the 290 X. Congratulations nVidia you played the game well from the 600 series to 700 series and Titan. Love or hate them you have to appreciate what they have pulled off here.

290X looks like ass and runs hot.

Only worth while models will be custom designs and the 780 should continue to sell well.

Nice. This really was a kick to AMD's nuts, great move by nvidia. Personally, I hope the 290X lowers in price to match this but i'm not sure it will happen - as things stand, the 780 overclocked cards sure look like a much better buy than the 290X (given that the cooler on it is borderline terrible).

Wait for the 290, and then we'll see what happens. The 290 is probably the wrecking ball we've been waiting for (near 290X performance at a $450 price point)
