Feronix - got it
I wouldn't call these cards comparable. That's the biggest problem with these cards. Catering to different users and therefore using different optimized drivers.

Take the R9 290 for example. From the specs it is tempting to say, that the Firepro is inferior.
But when you only consider OpenGL a Firepro v7900 does outperform a 290 by far.
Rendering the Benchmark-Maya-Scene "Hands" in 30 seconds, while the 290 will need 151 seconds. In the best results (multiple scenes) the 290 will get to approx. double the rendering time.
So when maya is the biggest part of the work this card will have to do there is no way around the "professional" version.

The pricing however is a real turnoff. The main reason, as mentioned, is the amount of cards produced.
