Aren't the 8xx series coming out Q1? I'm waiting for that, I usually skip one gen ( 2xx, 4xx, 6xx ).


Better be 30-40% performance increases across all price points or f*** both AMD and Nvidia.

In the article you posted, says 780 will be $499


^^^ This.

... and with the 780 at $499 and the 290X being a furnace at $50 less, I will go for the 780. Get the SC version and the difference between the two cards is minimal unless you are gaming at 4k.... and sadly, I am not and will not be for years.

AMD is trying harder, but at the top end Nvidia is still edging them out. Now the decision between 770 and 280x may be a different story as the 280x will not heat my house up by 20 degrees and the price to performance ratio is better.

http://www.anandtech.com/show/7465/nvidia-announces-geforce-gtx-780770-price-cuts-gtx-780-ti-launch-date

Titan = MSRP of $1000
GTX 780 Ti = MSRP of $700
R9 290X = MSRP of $550
GTX 780 = MSRP of $500
GTX 770 = MSRP of $330
R9 280X = MSRP of $300

All in all, it's going to be interesting where everything falls

Especially since R9 290X can beat Titan at half the price on a stock cooler, imagine what it can do on a custom cooler by one of it's partners.

The 780 falls in line where it should be for performance for the price relative to the R9 290X.

The 780 Ti is the big mystery since we don't know how it'll perform, so will the performance be Titan or better to justify it's $150 price gap over the R9 290X?

The GTX 770 vs R9 280X, both performances are adjusted to be relative to each other.

So it's get the card you want at that point and are you willing to spend a little more for a little more performance.

Personally I prefer the R9 280X for it's price to performance ratio.

Spending over $300 for a GPU, especially when it's going to be outdated in less than a year is what annoys me.

It's always hard to justify the cost of a GPU, especially since the performance increases with each generation haven't been nearly as tremendous compared to the cost increase.

Look at the launch prices of the GTX 700 series, it was so friggin expensive for the performance.

And Nvidia only shifted the performance tier to price ratio down by 1 rank based on Tom's Hardware GPU performance charts.

The Titans are about 20% faster than the 290x when both are overclocked.

Does a 20% performance increase justify a 82% cost increase in your mind?

For me, if the price was only a 20% increase, I would agree that it's worth it, but not at it's current MSRP.

Titan needs to be dropped in price to be relative to the 290X for it to be of good value for the gamer.

Titans released in Feburary, and are being discontinued now.

9 months later, AMD can't beat it so those who purchased a Titan not a bad deal, considering the 290X is going to get smoked by the 800 series next year

Titan is being replaced with a 780ti for $700, which is a Titan with a slight higher clock.

Edit: The 780 is dropping to $500, $50 below the 290X and even those when OC'd will beat a 290X (290X's just don't overclock well) and comes with 3 games. Blacklist, Black Flag and new Batman.

That's the better value, Nvidia and it's not an oven

The 800 series better smoke previous gen GPU's, that's obvious, they'll also charge a price premium.

For alot of us, we don't want to over pay, I prefer cost effective over paying out the wazoo.

To Quote Anandtech's 290X review:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/7457/the-radeon-r9-290x-review/20
"Getting down to business then, AMD has clearly positioned the 290X as a price/performance monster, and while that’s not the be all and end all of evaluating video cards it’s certainly going to be the biggest factor to most buyers. To that end at 2560x1440 – what I expect will be the most common resolution used with such a card for the time being – AMD is essentially tied with GTX Titan, delivering an average of 99% of the performance of NVIDIA’s prosumer-level flagship. Against NVIDIA’s cheaper and more gaming oriented GTX 780 that becomes an outright lead, with the 290X leading by an average of 9% and never falling behind the GTX 780"

290X's currently use a crappy stock cooler, if you give it a few weeks, we'll be seeing 3rd party boards with custom coolers, the OC should be much higher by then.

780 will be $550(still too much, the 290X and 290 are faster. the 290 will be $450.

the 770 has dropped by $50, and that needs to go down more as well, the 280X is better than the 770 for less money evena fter price drop.

Maybe they don't have the same price-performance value, but they do have that 3 free games deal plus the Gsync technology. I think that gives nVidia the edge for once.
#20PyrotechnixxxPosted 10/28/2013 5:39:36 PM
It amuses me that people keep saying how the 290X is a bad overclocker when we've only seen it on the reference cooler. No one planning on overclocking buys an AMD GPU with a reference cooler design.
