Nvidia should grow some and get a proper dual 780ti on the market, without all the fuss about DP compute and so, 6GB per GPU for less than 1399 USD and it would have a winner.
Likely, Nvidia could tune the board frequencies for performance once the 295X2 arrives...although it wouldn't surprise me for AMD to counter with an lower cost air cooled dual 290 (no-X) either.
Haven't owned a dual board since a GeForce 6600GT duallie (early adopter-itis) , and I don't see any of these offerings convincing me to return to a dual card.
If all these SKUs come to pass, it seems like both camps are treading water until 20/16FF comes onstream, and they more boards they launch, the less likely it seems that we'll see an early appearance of the new process.
