The industry has slowed down since those days, much harder these days and the techniques and technologies are entirely different as are power and cooling requirements.

So, on air, or on water, the card still has the same limit, it will just be a matter of how hot it is at that limit.

Under water the temp will be lower than on air, but both temps will be within safe margin of the cards overall safe limits.

or you could just mod the BIOS for a higher power limit....

If you really want out, price you 690 at $700 with the water block, put it on market place, and send me a pm. I will help you out thumb.gif

Exactly.

The "unlocked" Titan is in fact locked until someone comes up with a custom bios.

The only problem with that is.. why should I need a custom bios for my $1,000 gpu that was already marketed as unlocked? And then the counter argument to that will be: "DUDE you are on OCN, if you can't flash a bios then blah blah blah."

Well, I don't care who you are, but ***** can go wrong no matter how much experience you have - and I don't know if that's a risk I'm willing to take.

If the reason the Titan is $1000 is because there is no competition than I think Nvidia misjudged the market. Priced at $800 not many people would be complaining and they could market this as a late generation card that'll give you next gen performance now. At $1000 it just doesn't make as much sense. You could then introduce the 780 which would be slower than a Titan but faster than a 680 at $500 and keep the Titan somewhere between $700 - $800.


Of course this all remains to be seen. If Titan sells well and doesnt cause any conflict when the 700 series released, it's all moot.

Just my 2 cents..

Meh... I dunno what Nvidia was thinking with this card. Way too overpriced to even be a good e-peen card.

I really wish I had $2k for a pair of them in SLI, but as a single card it's just not got any value. The fact that you can get a significantly faster dual-card setup for a decent amount less money is just... sad. This card should have been $600-700.

In other words:

You could just wait another month or so before someone goes ahead and makes up a bios that may or may not brick your card.

I honestly don't have any other problem with TITAN except for this. Not the price, not the performance, not the price/performance.. just this.

Basically bait and switch and it irks me when companies do this.

Crap, looks like if you haven't gotten in a preorder by now its going to be a loooooooong time before you'll be getting your hands on a Titan. Oh well, think I'm just going to get a couple of 680 Lightnings afterall and be happy with the money I save (may buy a new plasma screen). Thinking of trying to bin some of them so I can get matching 1400+MHz cards. That ought to run Crysis 3 okay on 1440p... tongue.gif

Smart move. I however want to get a 7970 or dual 7870.

Kingpin has been using a modded bios. I know a few with it. I just dont have possession of it yet. When i have it everyone will have it.
