If AMD comes out with something that's even as good as the gtx 780, that is gonna be a good thing for the consumer.

Thank god. Maybe some real competition would actually lower the price of GPU's. Spending north of $500 on a card is getting a bit old.

Now if we could just get some x86 cpu competition out of someone...

Maybe Mantle unlock the power of parallel work in AMD cpu's is a way, that make these competitive with Intel offerings in games too. They did not lag behind too much even now. Of course they need to trim the TDP down, since 220W TDP 5GHz beast is funny hobby project, but nothing else.
If they can do the same performance in the 80-120 TDP range, then now we are talking :)

No other competition could come any time soon, because to compete with Intel, you need Intel resources and marketing and push, that many times optimized the benchmarks to perform best on their processors. They do influence even the compilers and optimalizations, so...

It was kinda red pill for me, when I read about how Linux was pushed to get the RND number output only and directly from special Intel CPU function. It make one wonder, why this interest, when there is seemingly nothing to be gained out of it... unless you see how being able to predict or even influence the output of the RND generator and then break some encryptions much easier... When things like that are happening, it make one wonder, how deep the rabbit hole rally goes.

Some leaked benchmarks here. Yeah it cuts the TITAN sometimes (approx 4-5%), but not by much, and not everywhere, especially in 3DMark tests. AMD Radeon R9 290X review charts leak out | VideoCardz.com

Some benches looking far more promising:

Depending on heat, noise and whether these numbers are ture, representative across many titles, doesn't suffer from runt, dropped or any other kind of stuttering issues and scales well to 2560x1440 then I may be trading 2 780's for 1 of these.


Thats allot of if's that I've always seen with Radions... :(

Is that a joke? Medium without AA at 1080P? An HD 7790 could handle that.
