Looking at reviews the 295x2 compared to 780ti SLI is the new performance king(overall as some games are biased). AMD has a winner here. Price still sucks though.. Wonder if the fall of bitcoin mining and such will ever cause this card to drop in price further?

After looking at the reviews the R9 295X2 looks like the best dual GPU card to date. It's a shame that it cost's so much.

There is actually a reason to get this, over just 2 R9 290X, its much cooler and quieter.

However, for the price, you could buy 2 R9 290X, and build a custom loop to cool them... and then they would be much faster, cooler and quieter.

Still, this looks awesome. Sadly, I don't think it will cause Nvidia fanboys to change their mind, considering for the price you can buy 2 780Ti's and whilst they are much louder, hotter and slower in certain cases, they will ignore that.
