Yes the price is nice, and it will surely drop as time goes by (maybe even sooner than later due to the 780ti coming out soon).

But...

1. The card does not beat the 780 clock per clock, and the 780ti will probably be even more ahead. :/
2. 95C load temps? O.o
3. 63+db load noise? D:

I'm sure that aftermarket cooling solutions will iron out most problems, but I was still hoping for more performance.

Anyway, I'm glad that it's finally released, the high end market will be more competitive now.

imo a $580 7990 malta card + 8 free games is still a better buy.


your not alone, im disappointed too although im a gtx titan owner, i really wanted amd to give some competition to nvidia so that maybe nvidia cuts the price of the titan so i can sli
