    If the exchange suggestions are correct then i think it makes the 780 look like a much better value GPU.

    Re: News - Nvidia takes axe to GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 pricing

    Scan has all of them now listed at £400-500 making it at this very moment prob a better purchase than these reference 290X cards which are running loud and hot.

    But then again I'm waiting to see what the 780ti is and also what difference Mantle is going to make come December when they release the BF4 patch... they are promising a 20-30% increase in performance which is HUGE... if its true then it would look like Mantle might actually take off however if its only a 3-5% increase I can't see dev's getting all that interested that quickly.

    The price drop is targeted towards the R9 290. That is coming in at around £325 to £375 it seems.

    Looking at what Gibbo has said over on OcUK its within 10% of the R9 290X and overclocks further on even the stock cooler.

    Good point! Bear in mind though, although added performance is obviously awesome, I would have thought the biggest thing, from a developers point of view, would be that it offers a much easier path of transition onto/from the consoles. AMD have potentially addressed one of the biggest problems with PC games in the past few years and that is poorly optimised ports.

    Over on OcUK,people are proclaiming the death of the AMD R9 series. I wonder what happens when the R9 290 drops and the non-reference cards start appearing in the next month or so??

    After all the GK110 is 565MM2 and Hawaii is 438MM2. Sure AMD bundles 1GB more of VRAM and probably has a slightly more complex PCB,but I do get the impression they are well placed to fight a price war with Nvidia.

    Moreover,if the reference cards are doing quite well against the GTX780 and Geforce Titan and are not boosting to highest clocks due to the cooler,what happens when the non-reference cards with better cooling replace the reference ones?? Are the MK2 R9 290 and R9 290X cards going to have even better performance??

    Re: News - Nvidia takes axe to GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 pricing

    I suspect that mantle will be a reduction in cpu overhead (they have said as much), which will give an increase in performance if you are cpu limited and have GPU performance to spare, i.e. lessening the cpu bottleneck. I'm hoping it will do a lot for us, i'm expecting it won't and the marketeers have gotten over excited.

    Exactly! It's optimization that will give edge to PC-ports and probably make it perform better)(as if it has not already performing better). And also, Nvidia had this coming, even though they are going neck-to-neck and even coming out at the top vs Radeon cards, they shouldn't be charging 20-40% more all the time.

    and it looks like the R290 is with 10% of the 290X - for $100 cheaper. and the GTX 780Ti will be $100 MORE than the 290X!!

    haha death of the R9 290X, honestly

    AMD will have known exactly what NVidia could do once the 290x was thrown into the mix, and will have a plan up their sleeve. I dont think the wait till the next generation will be anything like the wait between 7870 and the 290x

    Yep,but some of the hysteria on these price cuts I have not seen for years. It does make me think though....!

    Nice to see a price drop by Nvidia and so I can still get the card I want that has physX.

    Because in theory it's little cost to what they're already doing for console. So it's not a case of getting only 50% of the PC market, but instead optimising for 90% of the combined console+PC market or whatever.

    Indeed and as its an open system there is nothing stopping nVidia from using it if it does take off... also if Steam OS actually does well Mantle will make games play happier with Linux as well... there are plenty of pluses for it but it is a big change.
