NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 780 Ti to Counter Radeon R9 290X

With benchmarks of the Radeon R9 290X doing rounds, it's getting increasingly clear that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 won't remain competitive with the Radeon R9 290X for too long; and the R9 290X isn't competitive with the GeForce GTX TITAN enough to warrant a price-cut for the $999.99 SKU. NVIDIA's solution to the tangle is a newer SKU that replaces the GTX 780 from its current $649.99 price-point, which trades blows with the R9 290X. Called GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the SKU could be an overclocked GTX 780, or one that ships with a few more CUDA cores. NVIDIA didn't reveal any technical specifications, other than posting a teaser picture CGI render. To quote NVIDIA on this, "Stay tuned for details."

I agree with Super XP, I bet these r9-290 will have another 10-20% boost once they tweak drivers.

It's much more plausible as a Titan Ultra imho.

Fully fledged 15 SMX with a frequency bump to 1 GHz (boosting around 1.1GHz) could very well give a performance jump of 15%-20% over Titan.
Yeah,

it would be still crippled by Double precision though, so Titan could keep the crown in DP.

Idk why people think that is this such a absurd thing :D



Although there was one leak that showed std. 780GTX but with 100mhz clock boost, now if they release such #"!$ then nvidia fails a lot.
