Definitely non-stock cooler. 300W via a shroud is going to be hot and loud. Usually you pick between one or the other. Now it's performance / noise / temperature and you prioritize one over the other two:

To be super-fast, you need high heat and temperature. To be moderately fast, you choose between cool and loud or hot and quiet. If you want cool and quiet, you need to perform slowly.

On the other hand, a good waterblock will get you fast, cool and as quiet as your radiator setup can be. Even an ASUS DCU or Gigabyte Windforce will be a lot better.

I would +1 for this!

Great to see free market competition in action - ultimately, consumers benefit.

Only if they include the DP switch as the Titan has. if not, well.. its not going to be faster compute wise than 290x. Mabye even 290x will be faster since it has 1/8 speed of single precision. and 780ti might follow its kepler and fermi brothers with 1/24 speed of single precision.

This is very interesting..
http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-29...eForce-GTX-780

It states that R9 280x has 40% better floating point performance. Probably due to the 1/8 speed of dual precision and faster single precision performance than 780 (780 has 1/24 dp speed than sp).

Im pretty sure 780ti will not have the titan DP switch.. for gaming, cool, but for compute.. titan is the king.

They'd better be, for $100 more. So far looking at the specs I'm not impressed.

I think it's unfortunate that no other video card has reached or exceeded the efficiency of the GTX 580 in terms of GHz-days/FLOPS.
