Yes they will only get a small amount of the hash rate of an AMD GPU. Ex. 7950 hash rate is 600-700. Not even the titan can pass 500 and it is a steep hill down from there.

So is there any incentives to take a Twin Frozr 290X over a reference 780ti?

Really depends on your res. The 290X will do better at 1440/1600p
