So let's sell GTX 750 for 500$, GTX 770 for 2000$ and GTX 780 for 4000$ and if you want to SLI you have to pay $1000 more.
Sounds like a plan to me. You will feel unique with a 770, someone will feel even more unique with a 780.

Yep, that's right. It's pretty retarded and you need to learn to value your money. Got nothing else to spend it on?
Agreed...

Not enough people will pay $4k for a video card for it to be profitable. But $1k is the sweet spot. People will pony up $1k like they have for Intel and their extreme edition CPU's. And about my "logic", I'm just making a point. Of course I'd prefer Titan to be $700 but it isn't and I'm finding the silver lining in that...

On average, I don't think GPU prices have changed much at all.
Upgrading your CPU won't fix microsuttering... It *may* allow you to get closer to 60+ FPS which will make microstuttering less noticeable though.

Microstuttering is caused by how the cards handle the frames in SLI/CF, it has nothing to do with the CPU. If you were experiencing stuttering, then upgraded CPU and it removed it, then it wasn't microstuttering you were experiencing.

8800 Ultra wasn't that great....i bought in 2007...

GTX680 is 470-500$ now, 1000$ is not a sweet spot...plus 1200$ in Russia...even worse

Lol or funny enough, let's refresh GTX 660 and cover it with Gold and little peaces of diamons, that will make it " exclusives" for sure.

NVIDIA my answer is NO if you can read it, release the thing under 800 $ it doesnt worth 1000 never in the life. Bully company.

I paid an extra $5K for my Evo VIII MR for rarity and uniqueness (Not that Evos are unique or rare biggrin.gif) but I honestly don't see the problem if you can afford it. If you find Titan too outlandishly expensive and want to smartly invest your hard earned money get the 7970, 680, 670, or 7950. Simple as that...

Pretty much what I'm saying. I can't wait to see what two of these suckers under water will score on 3dmark11 and Heaven! biggrin.gif

Here's a recent history of high-end video cards I've purchased over the last 6 years:

8800 GTX: $550 - most expensive
HD 4870: $300 (wife's computer)
HD 5870: $400
HD 7870: $210 (wife's computer)
GTX 660 Ti: $280

The 8800 GTX was an awesome card. It was the Titan of 2006/2007. No other card since then has represented such a monumental leap forward in GPU technology from one generation to the next. Notice how that single GPU was $550. Back then, that was crazy expensive for a video card. There was somewhat of a backlash when it first came out, but people eventually got used to it and said "Oh well...."

But now it's ok to charge $1000 for today's 8800 GTX? And consumers such as yourself LIKE IT?!?!?!?

well said thumb.gif Nvidia has pushed their big die single GPU flagship to a industry new high price point. Obviously the role of AMD in this cannot be understated biggrin.gif

Okay by me. I'm looking forward to mixing it up with quad 7970/680 setups with two cards! My how my opinion on Titan has changed. I think its the fact that Nvidia came correct with proper voltage control finally.

I think the point is that exclusivity is in the eye of the beholder. To some 2 Titans might be exclusive, to others 4 may be the epeen cool threshold. Measuring coolness by using gpus as a yard stick seems a bit elementary, but hey, it's a matter of personal opinion as to one's own worth.

I understand that every company is out there to make money. AMD would have done the same if they had a single GPU card which competed with the dual GPU cards when overclocked. I still remember the days when AMD never hesitated to command 1000 bucks for the Athlon X2 4800+ in 2005. Its just that AMD does not have the leadership or competitive position both in CPU and GPU markets. My only concern is the GPU market should not go the way of the CPU market which frankly has no competition beyond USD 200 price points. mad.gif

Yeah you've got a good point. But I wouldn't count AMD out yet. Things looked pretty bleak when Nvidia released the 580 that destroyed the 6970 but the 7970 put AMD right back in the game. And with all this competition noise I keep hearing, how come Nvidia didn't charge more for the 580? Similar to Titan, the 580 never really had any competition from AMD either...
