There's no way it's only 4GB though.
Agreed. AMD would have to be delusional to price the 4GB version at $849 if it doesn't beat Titan X by at least 15% at every resolution. Even then it would be a hard sell, and for a card being promoted as 4K ready, a sick joke. Would also be business suicide for AMD.
But gotta say, kind of entertaining how every little bit of baseless rumor gets everybody so fired up. Maybe I should start my own rumor site
(come to think of it, why do I get the feeling someone decided to make a rumor out of AMD's "we don't want to be the cheape solution anymore" statement
