Yes about Titan. Titan never made any sense as a general consumer card. As for 780ti, it's a very interesting question. Let's say the average game uses 2816sp (counting special function) with 48 ROPs, and AMD hit the nail squarely on the head to compete with that limitation from nvidia. It's pretty damn close, but let's give them the benefit of the doubt. 13 smx is similar to 2912sp (2496sp + 416sfu)...so perhaps slightly less efficient, but pretty darn close. But then you also have 3GB (4 less chips) of memory and 16 less ROPs being fed, which are hardly a detriment in most single-card and/or single monitor scenarios, hence it will help power consumption relatively. It could run up to around ~1020-some mhz before it is restrained by bandwidth, as it is consumed in conjunction with the shader processors. (2912*1020-something) > (2816 =< 1000) any way you cut it, and I will be beyond surprised if that is not what nvidia will do. The clocks will of course be listed as 9xx/9xx., but it will turbo and play games at precisely that level so all memory bandwidth is used for at least 384/6008. You then have a card that is faster, realistically, than 290x at 1080p/2560. While it may only scale as well as memory bandwidth allows (say they overclock to 6.6, then it will be bottlenecked at ~1130mhz) the radeon has it's heat issues that will also come into play around a similar performance level. They, like all their other ~300w watt cards, will be close. You're essentially switching clockspeed for units (for compute) on nvidia's side with a slight increase in efficiency (780 is similar to 2688sp), as 780 can clock pretty high and get close to saturating it's overclocked bandwidth. That said, if they use a slightly higher tdp and/or 7ghz ram, that could conceivably change things slightly. Should be interesting, if only academically. 290x is a hell of a deal, relatively speaking, and I look forward to see how they run with better coolers and the powertune level jacked up (to 50%/375w?! Good call AMD! Power back to the people!). Even with the power consumption being high, if they can maintain stable clocks it's a pretty great design. Would love to see one running maxing out the process/memory controller at somewhere close to 1300/6400...sucker would be a sight, and likely a sound, to be reckoned with. Wonder if anywhere around that level will be realistic with a good aftermarket (AC) air/(whatever) water cooler.
