Did you read the reviews? It beats the Titan in most of the games tested at various resolutions.

It does beat the Titan in quite a few, even at 1440p. All around they're trading blows. What's most impressive is the cost. Now I'm REALLY considering selling this 7970 and upgrading -_-

It would be cheaper and more advantageous to just get a second one.

On another note, 290X CF is looking great, even at 4k.

What the hell all, all the benchmarks are all over the place.

In this one Titan beats 290x on an amd game:
