    Possibly the thing with AMD is I really like them but through no fault of their own nvidia seems to have made more deals with the developers of the games I play and it would be frustrating to have the games performing poorly just because they are more optimized for nvidia cards.

    That's right. AMD scales better at 2.5K and 4K.

    GameWorks is a cancer to the game industry

    Decided to go with a 980. My setup is only 1080p, should be good for now. Big upgrade plans soon.

    After about a month of sketchy benchmarks, leaked specs and pictures displaying cool lighting, the Titan X is here.
    AnandTech | The Nvidia Geforce GTX Titan X review
    Jayztwocents | The Weirdest Titan X review Ever! - Live 4k Performance Testing
    Linustechtips | Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X - The Best Video Card on the Market?

    It's seems to be about what we expected, perhaps a bit more. I still don't think the performance can justify the $1000 price tag though. The only reason to get this card is if you want 4K gaming at 60 FPS and don't want to deal with the dual-GPU 295X2.

    Thoughts?

    Am I missing something here? Why would anybody pick any of those over a R9 295X2? Cost less, and appears to outperform many cards at least on paper. Is the real world circumstance different?

    EDIT
    I see...the 295X2 is like a mini embedded crossfire system, whereas the titan X is a single card system. Makes a little more sense now, especially being a 250W card vs a 500W card.

    Im waiting for R9 390X before I make my move.
    Dat bandwidth with the glorious HBM, plus water cooling with superior temps makes me wet just thinking about it

    Here is HBM pictured btw.
