I don't know why anyone is surprised by a dick move like this from AMD. It is what they do best. Should have seen it coming when they were piling on Kepler.
Anytime they accuse nvidia of doing something bad, you can be damn sure they are doing it too. From shader replacement, to clipping plane opimizations to trilinear/anisotropic optimizations to driver lockouts and oh so much more.
Adam knew he should have bought a PC but Eve fell for the marketing hype.
Homeopathy is what happened when snake oil salesmen discovered that water is cheaper than snake oil.
The reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it. -- George Carlin

I'd be interested to see the image quality dissected between the 290X and 390X. 35% with similar IQ is pretty unheard of from a driver revision, IIRC from days I actually watched such things.
I have no doubt the 390X is a little better than the 290X but not 35% better unless the 4GB was the problem on the 290X. As it doesn't appear to be on the 980, IQ can't be the same unless NV is doing some sort of compression that lets them get under the 4GB.
