If that happens (which from all my research here and elsewhere is looking likely) than I'll have to live with 2x 680s
It will be disappointing, but seems I play at 120hz 1080p (Or using 3DVision), it will surely be enough for a while anyway and I'll upgrade again when we get to the 800 series.

Also, thanx all who are telling me my PSU will be fine with 2x 680s.
Its reassuring hearing it from people who I respect as being among the best at this stuff.

I have 2 very bad GTX 470s in SLI... one (was) a twin frozr with 2 inadequate 70mm fans ziptied to the heatsink and an unstable EVGA GTX 465 that was flashed. Together they work... but the 1280mb of VRAM just isn't enough to use AA on BF3 and I worry about keeping them cool in the summer gaming season and together with my oversized mobo and overclocked i7 have stressed my Corsair HX750w to the max.

I've been saving money to upgrade to a 780. My understanding is that with a current 3DM11 score of about P9500-P10000 I'm clocking in right at about a single GTX 680 between them. I've never spent even $600 on a graphics card but have been waiting for a card where I can say "I've got my $ worth." I definitely would like to get away with not buying a new card for a few years. It's been 3 years since I picked up the original GTX465. $8-900 and not even touching a 690 is steep. I like the 6gb of RAM. Considering my vRAM problem having a good vRAM cushion is important. I do like to bench, but my main concern is maxing games like ArmA III, Crysis 3 (and 4 maybe?) Battlefield 4, etc. I'm currently running 1920x1200 but would like a 2560x display in the future.

I'm just not sure if sucking it up and spending the cash on a card like this Titan is worth it over my current 470s or what kinds of improvements the 700 series would bring. At least in that department it is $600 now and in a couple years I might muster another $500 to add a 2nd having hopefully upped my PSU by then.

I don't think Titan will be that fast but if it is all of the current 4-card leaders in the benching section will be overrun by guys with two Titans... wink.gif

It won't be that fast. I believe it was the article in the OP of this thread that put it about 20%-30% behind a 690, which puts it about 50% ahead of a 680 and 7970. I hope to god that is wrong.

Titan will destroy two 470's straight up. If the numbers being thrown around are true a single Titan could score over 18k points in 3dmark11 (GPU) which is nearly as fast as SLI 680's. The price is outrageous but the performance will be there. Don't worry though because the chances you have of actually finding one to buy are remote...

I don't believe it will be that fast either but it would be epic if it was. At least then it would be worth the price...

I think I will be able to find one. I live by an ncix warehouse so if I see on it their website listed I would call right away / pre order as they usually list stuff before they have it., they seem to get the limited stuff I remember them having the MARS II (and they currently have the ARES II) which are probably way more limited then the titan will be.

I think ill just pick up another 680 lightning when I go 1440, or wait another year for the next gen. With price speculations, to me it's not worth, but still would be damn nice to own one.

1440p on SLI 680 Lightnings rocks pwnzilla smile.gif
post #238 of 999
The titan doesn't even beat the best cards on the market (7990 and 690). Wow. And there is no chance to put two of these on single PCB, so what was really ever the point?
post #239 of 999
Considering a $1000 for the current 690 you're probably looking at the equivalent or better than the ASUS ARES II AMD dual 7970. Limited run at $1600?! Give or take.

I've read articles indicating the $1000 mark, but I doubt they'll drop the 690 so soon in pricing.

The point for me would be to get two in SLI. That would probably beat most quad-GPU setups and have the advantage of dual card stability. Or it would be ideal for those who wanted 690 performance but with a single GPU for wider compatibility...
