    These pretty much confirm all the various leaks. The only two new things are the alarming heat and power consumption of this reference card. It should be priced at $550 regardless of it coming close to Titan and besting by a few frames the 780. Price could be a determining factor if this is a success.

    Price will be the determining factor but I don't think benchmarks at single 1080p say that much.

    1440p and above is where you'll see if it worth it.

    I also don't see a premium price for it since that will leave a huge price gap from R9 280X to 290/X

    Interestingly enough, that price gap is pretty similar to the price gap between the monitors each of these cards is intended to push, according to AMD. Makes perfect sense, to me.
