Couple of issues,
1) 780Ti is faster clock for clock in this review
2) GK110 clocks considerably higher than Hawaii, 100MHz is actually somewhat conservative, especially if we're talking about models with proper voltage control.

Under load it drew 424W, and increased up to 449W with our highest stable overclock. The GIGABYTE R9 290X 4GB OC drew 408W under load, and 430W under load after overclocking."
I know and that's my point.
Lately we've had people who quote reviews where 780Tis draw 100W less than 290Xs and then say that the 780Ti is a bad card. No, the review just showed throttling 780Tis.
GK110 draws more power than hawaii at proper clocks, and if a review shows the opposite you have a really skewed picture of what the cards are actually capable of.
