    Hate to say it, but Nvidia's been ruling the roost for quite a while. This seems to be a move to maintain that, and I doubt the R290X will be enough to change it.

    If AMD come in at $649 it will sink fast.

    Re: News - Nvidia unveils GeForce GTX 780 Ti - the Radeon R9 290X killer?

    GTX 780's bigger brother, the GTX Titan, uses an incomplete GK110 die - one that can harness 2,880 processors. Titan grabs 2,688 shaders while GTX 780 makes do with 2,304, with each card dropping what Nvidia terms an SMX unit from the full-fat die. It's possible that GTX 780 Ti has all 16 SMX units enabled, providing a wider, faster architecture that lays the foundation for best-in-class performance.

    16/15 SMX enabled? I know nvidia have good engineers, but that would require GOD engineers.

    pretty annoying that the Titan a enthusiast card could be beaten by a cheaper nvidia card, imean fair enough that AMD target it because there competitors but there own company aiming to bring it down so soon.

    but that's always the way, my gtx580, is now whipped by a GTX760...

    always liked ATI (now AMD) but since i've got gtx680 MSI flavour - I am not looking back. SO my thumbs go up for nVidia

    Re: News - Nvidia unveils GeForce GTX 780 Ti - the Radeon R9 290X killer?

    nVidia might be winning the outright fastest card available on a single die crown with the Titan, but even the 780 is an eye watering £500, Titan a mortgage inducing £780.

    Given the R9 280X is a more realistic £220-230ish I can't see AMD pushing the 290X above £450, that would leave a massive whole in their product lineup.

    I'm expecting is to come in at £450 for GTX780 beating performance, and the nVidia to "win" by a narrow margin so all the nVidia fanboys can gloat their "team" is has the fastest card, with the minor point that it costs an additional £150 for about 5% better performance in resolution where both cards are pushing +£100 fps, and potentially worse performance in 4k / 3 monitor situations, where these cards are really meant to be used anyway.

    Still, let's see if it plays out this way.

    I don't think it'll be a 290x killer, it'll probably just and i mean 'just' beat it in the benchmarks. But I'm sure AMD have left room for a mid service overclock.

    I'd be more concerned about this: http://www.engadget.com/2013/10/18/nvidia-g-sync/ especially as AMD probably needs it more tbh (speaking as an AMD user)...

    I think the most telling thing he said was "hopefully everyone can see the difference", about 30 seconds after he'd said "it's such a dramatic difference that I cannot imagine playing any other way". I'm going to let you decide which was the hyberbole PR BS and the other the truth.

    To the trained eye, yes, their is a difference, and yes it's an innovative solution, and yes it's marginally better in optimal conditions. Wonder why they didn't show you the difference between G-sync / V-sync at 30fps...o yeah that's because it would be exactly the same experience. The worse case scenario is probably 45 fps, which ironically they didn't bother to demonstrate. Game changing? Riiiiiiiiiight.....

    Re: News - Nvidia unveils GeForce GTX 780 Ti - the Radeon R9 290X killer?

    The R9 290x is going to be cheaper, meaning that even if NVIDIA barely manages to beat it, the cost/performance crown will still be AMD's.

    If it's the best GPU ever built that means it's better than the TITAN?

    Price is the biggest factor. Customers are going to examine the R9 290X and the GTX 780ti and look at performance and price of that performance per card.
