11. Re: Out of the Blue Oct 29, 2013, 14:13 jacobvandy
 
NVIDIA dropped prices on the 780 and 770 today, to $499 and $329 respectively. As expected (though rather expeditiously), they've effectively neutralized AMD's new releases. So the 290X is 10% faster than the 780? Then you will pay 10% more. Identical bang for your buck, if you ignore that the thermal performance disparity is still there. Especially since they're not downgrading the cooler on the 780 despite the $150 cut.

Also, the 780 Ti will be coming out in a week, and will be sold for $699. They waited to see what the 290X would offer before announcing as such, so that price suggests it will be significantly faster. We shall see.
