Just in case you're right about the destroying lets look at it from a different angle. Just for $100 more I can buy two R9 290 and than we can talk about destruction.

They will spank it and that for certain, that's not even a contest, and the gap increases as the resolution go up, Hawaii has less performance penalty than GK110 at high resolutions. Just multi-gpus are not for everyone due to the issues that might be suffered in the process. Also the reference cooler is already pretty bad on R9 290, imagine how loud two of these will be. with the waterblocks for each card the cost will be more than $100 difference. GTX 780 Ti has a reference cooler that can be lived with with a decent OC. IMO after trying a reference Fermi GTX 470 and how loud it was I would not ever buy a card with reference cooler unless I plan to water cool it, with the exception of maybe 770, 780 or 780 Ti as those already have decent reference coolers.

True it's going to be more with non reference card but Alatar was comparing with the non ref. 780Ti so there is also going to be some extra cost there, anyway I just hope there are going to be some custom R9 290 with not much extra cost, probably not true with the first edition since many people are waiting.

No. 780 Ti is just faster (and more expensive). It's beastly. A friend bought it to replace his 670 OC SLI (He's is going ITX) and in most games it's just as fast or even faster.. Very impressive single GPU performance. This is at 1200p.

680 have recieved tons of driverboosts too. But remember AMDs drivers for 7970 were TERRIBLE at launch (and many many months into 2012) + Some ppl compare the 7970 at 925/1375 vs GHz Editions 1050/1500...

New drivers, mantle improvements, more vram and better scaling at high resolutions will make 290x much better card. 780ti is just overpriced card that depends on nvidias marketing.
