I don't see how it wouldn't be faster. The R9's benchmark leaks put it along the lines of Nvidia's 2 year old GK110 chip.

Obviously the 880 isn't going to be the same as the GK110 in terms of performance.

Probably.
Last time Nvidia had an architecture change, it ended up with Kepler just dominating over Fermi by a huge margin.

Since the new AMD cards seem to be neck-to-neck with Kepler cards... Maxwell should dominate over Hawaii (which is rumored to perform similar to the current top Nvidia cards)..

Of course, we don't know just how Hawaii performs, yet, so...

290x has superior performance from the titan, and the titan is much faster than the 780

Hahahahaha, oh, man, that's the funniest thing I've read in a while.

I would take pre-release "leaked" benchmarks with a giant grain of salt personally. I hope performance is up there though and the price is around 500-550 for the simple fact of driving nvidia's prices down. As for the 880 it will probably blow whatever is currently available out of the water because the 800's will be a completely new chip design according the road map thing Nvidia showed not to long ago. I'm sure AMD will come out with something that performs close to as good but at a lower price soon after.

It's been pretty much the same story for the last few years now. Nvidia undercut the 7970's by 100 bucks just last year when they were originally released.

the titan and the 780 are the same card but one of them has 6GB of VRAM and the other 3GB

Yeah. The extra 2-3fps the Titan gets over the 780 in most games is simply mindblowing.

With the next generation of GPUs moving to 20nm, it's guaranteed to be faster.
