[TPU] Radeon R9 295X2 Pictured in the Flesh, Specs Leaked - Page 18

post #171 of 286
I would say €1.000+. Who knows, they may charge slightly under a Titan Z , ~€2.199 tongue.gif. Its really up in the air as the whole mining craze is the unexpected trump card here that may sway prices. I'm sure they'll (miners) be buying seven of these for one rig to mine rolleyes.gif. We can't trust the msrp anymore as its just ineffective when greed is in the way thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

I don't see them matching or relating to the Titan Z's price point. They didn't with the 290X or 290.

Yes, the Titan Z isn't a good value for gaming obviously. I do not see the 295X2 as a direct competitor to the Titan Z, they can both play PC games but the Titan Z does some things which the 295X2 cannot. Even though it's marketed half towards gaming, the true draw of the card is for unlocked DP for compute purposes related to CUDA development. It's been said and ignored before, but it has higher CUDA performance for CUDA/compute than the Quadro K6000. And it's cheaper than the K6000. For that professional sector the 295X2 will not be fit for duty. Whereas the Titan Z is a relative bargain compared to the K6000 for CUDA developers.

That's more or less what the draw of the Titan cards are: CUDA development. Yes, I know they're partially marketed towards gaming. But no PC gamer should be buying those cards unless they just don't give a crap about cost. CUDA developers are the one buying those cards, and nvidia apparently sells a significant amount of them towards that professional sector.

ANYWAY. That said, for gaming, you'd have to be truly messed up in the head to get a Titan Z. Or just rich beyond reason. While i'm a fan of NV, I do completely agree with that sentiment. The gamer should get the 780 or 780ti (or whatever else really) instead, and completely ignore all of the Titan cards.

As far as the 295X2 goes, I think it's going to be a fine product. I feel AMD made the right choice by going with the AIO loop. Looking forward to reviews. I mean, it's going to be quiet and perhaps a little overclocking as icing on the cake. Should be an awesome card for AMD fans.

Can we all just wait and see once both are officially announced and benchmarked? Then we can decide thumb.gif

Also, those photos are pretty bad ,considering the flash. I'll take some real pictures and let you guys see comparing the two.

A Water Cooled 290X vs 780 Ti Underclocked. With CF scaling as good as it does i think its a easy win for 295. 290X Stock vs 780 Ti stock in CF 1440p are about the same with 290X pulling ahead in 4K.

So, unless you are pulling our legs with an April Fools, you basically confirmed that the picture in the OP is indeed a picture of the card with this post :O!

Wonder how aggressive they will be with onboard VRam, and ofc the clocks for both this monsta and the Titan Z to remain within this limited TDP.
How "exciting" it would be getting to custom WC that baby and into a ITX build?
Or get 2x for quad crossfire in a mATX built with acrylic piping and everything?

I mean, you can make it work, even if you start with something mediocre looking like that, which could be nothing more than an engineering sample. If partners were allowed some creative freedom with the cooling solution, and not just follow the ref. design, it could be better looking when in mass production.

Cause ofc you want to look into the engine bay of your performance car...maybe not your daily commuter, but it is no accident some supercars have clear engine bay covers/hoods. thumb.gif

Wouldnt be exciting at all as ITX builds are snooze fests
