Wow, never imagined a 290x speedup over a current-gen GPU within this decade let alone this year.

Half a frame is always irrelevant.

This information is irrelevant until price is revealed. Most people will still get the Titan if it is priced the same.

Will it cost roughly the same as a Titan or more?
