Nice. I bought my 680 explaining to my wife that I don't see anything breakthrough coming out in the MacPro department for the foreseeable future because I usually buy a new MacPro every 4 to 5 years. That was awhile before we saw the new MacPro... I guess I'll be upgrading my CPUs instead, although this MacPro's been able to handle everything more than acceptably after the GPU upgrade.

AMD's Hawaii Chip that is due out very soon is apparently more powerful then the 780 and the Titan

Definitely more powerful than the 780, but the leaked benchmarks for it look like a statistical tie with the Titan. Faster on some things, slower on others, but not by overly much in either direction except on a couple games. Looks like the chip itself is a good deal smaller than the GK110, however, so maybe it'll have a lower TDP, which might be of interest to some.

If the rumored $599 price is right, though, that's a big discount for that performance.

I saw the Radeon R9 290X review on Anandtech. Very impressive performance at a fraction of the cost of the TITAN. It's also faster than the FirePro D700 top option for the new 2013 Mac Pro.

I would not be surprised if Sapphire released a Mac Edition.

The 290X look great but are you thinking about a kit for the new (late 2013) Mac Pro or earlier model? I think the 290X needs a 8 and 6 pin connector?

Also it seems something is still a bit strange with the 7950 drivers as there are reports of poor performance still in 10.9.

rob can correct me if IM wrong a lot of games will have a time demo FPS built in or, FPS counter display than can be turned on or off repeating game conditions or in some cases use a 3rd party add on to the game that will display and track the fps in the game.  In bare feats testing have seen these details listed at the bottom of the articles.  Whenever myself or a friend upgrade a mac for game always like to do these types of tests!
