The benchmarks definitely look impressive especially considering the price and more competition is always good for consumers. I just do not have faith in the quality of their drivers (based on my personal objective experience)... I might pick one up when it will be available, though, just to see how it really performs. If it will be bad - I'll just throw it into the closet (or give it away to someone) and continue using my Titan
P.S: I just noticed - they list Titan's video RAM as "3GB"... Is that a typo or something?

Actually, it's ATI users themselves who did a huge disservice to ATI/AMD, particularly the users of Rage3D forum... You are probably too young or inexperienced to remember
but there used to be a HUGE sticky thread in Rage3D's forums, in "Catalyst" section. It was titled (yes, I remember the exact title) "Current Catalyst driver issues *POST NEW DRIVER ISSUES HERE!!!*
" and it's where all of ATI card users used to compile all of the issues (both officially known and "unknown") with various games/software, regardless of the current driver version. You did not have to be a "compensated shill" or a "rabid fanboy" to troll some ATI fanbot back then - all you had to do is to post the link to that thread after someone in some other forums would ask about ATI's driver quality or try to say that "their drivers are fine"
Most of the issues were conveniently compiled on the first page of that thread.
After some time the ATI got butthurt (especially when Nvidia started to use the link to that very thread in their interior PR documents) and asked the moderators to remove this sticky thread. So they did, in 2006 (or 2007, I don't remember when exactly). Now the only sticky threads that remain in that forum section are related to most current beta/WHQL drivers and these threads are also removed when new driver versions are being released.
Of course Nvidia's hired agency (Arbuthnot Entertainment Group) also used this thread for "Astroturfing" (forum shilling) purposes but the efficiency of their work significantly decreased when that thread was finally removed
