In the green trunks is the ASUS GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II OC which [H]ard|OCP overclocked to the point they saw in game performance of 1211MHz GPU and 7.2GHz on the memory.  In the red trunks we find Gigabyte's R9 290X 4GB OC weighing in at 1115MHz and 5.08GHz for the GPU and memory respectively.  Both cards have been pushed beyond the factory overclock that they came with and will fight head to head in such events as Battling the Field, Raiding the Tomb and counting to three twice, once in a Crysis and again in a Far Cry from safety.  Who will triumph?  Will the battle be one sided or will the contenders trade top spot depending on the challenge?  Get the full coverage at [H]ard|OCP!

that close in power is not noticeable 20 watts don't mean anything. Look at fact 780ti is clocked 100mhz faster and ram is also clocked 2ghz more so that small amount of watts.
