I wonder if it will go there
Nothing yet. We'll know on Monday.
As long as they continue to provide value for money I will always consider them.
I'm wonderng how well the 290x will do against 780 and Titan. Nvidia always has the Titan Ultra in reserve so even if 290x beats the Titan by a few percentages all nvidia has to do is release an fully unlocked Titan with more aggressive clockspeed boostin profile.
That will be 2-3% faster than the regular one and cost 25% more and use more power than a GTX690. Yeah, makes sense.
FYI, so could AMD release a beefier R9 290X, for one thing, the memories could sure be clocked a lot faster (512bit + 6,5GHz GDDR5s a-la R7 260X?).
Oh, AMD are DEFINITELY giving themselves headroom with the series.
I would not be surprised to see R9 295 and 295X later on, after nV launches its upcoming GeForce 8xx series.
Either that, or OEMs will have parts to make "Platinum" and "Ultra" variants of their cards, with a lot more oomph under the hood.
I have cash in hand but I am also an impatient old fart. They need to hurry man as I have a choice of 7990, R9 290x or the 780 but will not pay that much as the titan for a single GPU

Nice fakes, but numbers don't add up, eh?
We'll have to wait.
Why don't they add up? Just curious.
If the 280x is slower than your 7970 GE, then I have to question your testing methology at the least.
The 280x is about 5% slower though.
They are pretty evenly matched.
No, it's not lol. It scores about 1 fps faster in nearly everything. It's the same damn card.
The stock R9 280x is a bit slower than 7970 GE
Isn't the R9 290 / 290X launch date today? We wants our reviews now! :x
Three of those are tools and hate AMD. Their results are automatically discounted. Eurogamer and Ten Syndicate off the top of my head show differently.
edit: And guru3D shows from 1-4 fps improvement on EVERY game. And that's not the OC versions, either.
The one place where a 7970 GE is compared to a 280x, it shows 130.6 to 127.3.
Could kind of call that margin of error, which makes sense since they basically are the same card.
I have no idea if these are accurate, but seems you are nit-picking in an effort to call it all fake.
This is saying October 24 now:
pconline 290x review: http://diy.pconline.com.cn/363/3631256_all.html
Now they look real.
Just because they differ from the results here or from other sites, doesn't automatically make them fake, and since those 5 sources seem to agree with the "fake" one i'll say it's legit.
Maybe the configuration is different, cpu, drivers, etc.
Exactly. It could be either way really.
That lists Titan as 3GB! Fake!!! (Just kidding, typos happen.) So Titan has competition, that's good.
Separate names with a comma.
