    We are not that far away from a product release from AMD's launch of the AMD's Hawaii GPU, some site leaked pictures and benchmarks. If the photos published by DG's Nerdy Story web-site are to be ...

    Hopefully the claimed performance turns out to be true so that we actually have some competition again :)

    Looks good

    From just this it looks good. Competition is always good, especially in graphics.

    Based on that, Since when did the Titan only have 3GB of Vmem?

    So the R9-290X IS a single GPU, thanks to whoever tried to claim it was a dual GPU card in the other thread!

    Looking tasty. Time to get some moolah together for it ;)

    A generation or 2 ago AMD couldnt beat NVIDIA on their old release and now the same again ..if it is a good card they are suppose to overtake the titan[which again is oldish by now] by far
    AMD is so mid range and NVIDIA,S old tech still over takes it,but AMD still has time to fix their drivers.

    In years past their would be atleast a 30% increase over the previous generation of cards and in competition ,doesnt seem like it anymore!http://forums.guru3d.com/images/smilies/banana2.gif!!!!

    Vengeance, I think maybe you are missing the point a little here! The new AMD card supposedly performs as well as the Titan (a super-high end card) and it itself is only a high end card, as stated by AMD. This is also relevant in the alleged pricing.

    The new AMD card technically would compete against the GTX 780, in terms of level. Even then, it looks to be cheaper. Of course, they could make a card that is 30 percent faster, but all that would achieve is cards that are more expensive. From a performance and price viewpoint, the AMD cards do exceed Nvidia's current gen by 30 percent or more.

    AMD does beat NVidia in price vs perf but I don't think its 30%
