    The W9000 was already mopping the floor with the K6000 as it is. This is just showing off :))


    One thing I don't understand. If W9000 based on the 7970 was so fast, how is that the 290X based W91000 is just slightly faster?

    Thermal limitation. There are nearly no changes in power efficiency, therefore they are limited by thermal limits and 16GB eats quite some energy too.

    That's a LOT of VRam. Good for all those gamers wanting many, many 4K panels :p

    - W9000 = 4Tflops SP / 1Tflops DP..
    - W9100 = ~ 5.2 Tflops SP / ~ higher than 2.0 Tflops DP .. ( theoricaly max DPFP is 2.6Tflops )....

    Going to a 1:2 DP rate maximum is big ( even if sustained we should be at 1:2.5 rate)

    You get 2x more DP than on the W9000 and it should be slighty higher of a TitanZ who is made with 2x GPU GK110.

    I would actually love to see some gaming benchmarks done on this card.

    Never ever seen it done before on AMD professional grade GPU's before.

    I am sure they wouldn't be much better than current mainstream GPU. As DP has next to no benefit for games.

    Still hope this filters down into their mainstream lineup, using the full Hawaii core.

    This gpu is an hawaii core, you should not end at something more than a 290x anyway...

    Be clocked lower and cherry-picked dies.
