That is all.
Yea, the same was said of the OG Titan, and I bought the OG Titan, with exactly the same thought process.
And look what happened, overpriced cards, sure its 30-40% faster, but for $1200? Even the GTX 1080 is overpriced, yet is better price/perf compared to that, or hell, the GTX 1070 to begin with.
And eventually, the performance of OG Titans, as will this new Titan X, will be had in the later Ti variants for hundreds of dollars cheaper, the Titans were never worth it, and I regret even getting the OG Titan.
We used to get mid-range die size cards for $250 like the 8800 GT or the GTX 560 Ti, now, the very same mid-range die size analogue in the GTX 1080 now retails for $700.
Nvidia knows that idiots, like me once, will overpay for middling 30-40% improvement, and they get away with it because nobody looks at the whole picture.
We are getting a crap deal compared to previous generations, the Fermi generation was the good days, not this.
The GTX 980 Ti was the only card recently that was priced right and fairly, only because AMD had their Fury X to counter it. You bet your ass that 980 Ti could have been $850 or more if AMD didn't have any answer.
Are we going to keep justifying $1200 for this Titan X, nevermind the fact that this Titan X Pascal is not even the full chip, it's only 3584 cores compared to the full-fat 3840 cores possible.
Then what, Volta Titans for $1500? $2000? At what point does it end? At what point can you claim it is "worth" it, knowing that this performance can be had for a far more reasonable price like 3-4 months later, like it was for OG Titan to GTX 780 Ti, and again with Titan X Maxwell to GTX 980 Ti.
In the dark future, the $2500 Titan Volta, comes out, and finally it makes no sense anymore. If GPU's are this expensive, VR won't advance its userbase any bigger because we need those better GPUs to push VR even higher, but it's not happening with the ridiculous prices of Nvidia. in this we need AMD to bring out their Vega and bigger cards, so one GPU is not having a monopoly at the high-end, and leaving the rest of us scraps.
