the only reason two titans beat 2 690s is drivers and nothing more, Quad scaling is a farcry from Sli and if those 690s had proper drivers they would run all over those Titans any day.
My whole point is not about whether it appreciates or depreciates it's about perceived value for each individual. Obviously we are at different ends of the spectrum.
It still leads to the fact that the 690 has been out for how long now and it still doesn't have optimal drivers when quad SLId. Meanwhile the Titan just came out and it's already beating the 690 at the high resolutions when it's Titan SLI vs Quad 690 (with drivers that will continue to be pumped out because it's the newest product). So how long will you wait before they finally optimize drivers for a quad setup compared to Nvidia releasing SLi drivers?
This is where I think the Titan wins out IMO, worth it to me just for that fact. I'm not bashing the 690 mind you, it's a great card and all, I just think from a driver support perspective, the Titan wins out.
