    Some interesting results there given the difference in price but could I ask one thing.

    Could you keep the charts in the same format for each page please...it gets a tad confusing especially when AMD becomes the green team and Nvidia the red.

    Thanks
    Of course I'm perfect you just need to lower your expectations.

    GeForce GTX Titan and upcoming Radeon R9 290X will not give playable FPS at 4k.

    They both keep their colours, it's just the winner of the benchmark goes to the top. I actually quite like it though I must admit at first I thought that the 770 had won in Grid 2 as I wasn't expecting a positional switch.

    As mentioned by Attila the Bun, what was the reason for choosing 2 cards that are from very differnet price points? Surely this is little misleading as the performance of the 2 cards is very close but the difference of performance vs price is very big.

    Usually you guys compare cards in the same price range to show what the direct competition has to offer at the same price point which is a fair comparison.

    It's not misleading as they aren't claiming otherwise. Surely most people can look at the graphs, look at the price of each and understand that the 770 is terrible value at it's current price?

    Looks fine to me? The AMD card is faster, is at the top and has red bars.

    Actually Kanoe I was highlighting the fact that their performance is similar (in fps at least) but there is a big big difference in price. It will be interesting to see how Nvidia respond.

    Quick work there HEXUS ...Jimbo I still have the page 5 I opened about 5 minutes ago when it was different.

    Ah heh ok. It was a little bit confusing to start with but it makes sense instead of having one vendors card at the top even in the cases where it's not fastest. I have a feeling we might see quite a lot of positional switching between Titan and the 290X soon.

    It's going to be interesting that's for sure.

    So if, as it seems, the short of it is that 4K monitors will become affordable at about the same time that cards come out that can handle gaming at that resolution? That sounds perfect to me! 2015 will be a good year.

    Incidentally, the review mentions use of AA at various levels ("Removal of the 4x AA setting isn't enough to increase performance to an average of over 25fps", etc)...

    Just wondering: why did you have AA on at all? I thought the part of the point of ultra-high resolutions was that we wouldn't need AA anymore since the ppi would be so high?
