Hell, used to write drivers for most of the Alienware folks here, all the time.

You actually can successfully modify the bios/drivers to OC a 690 quite a bit. Is it game changing? Absolutely not. Possible? Absolutely.

The Titan wasn't designed to sit around and game on -- It just so happens that it's capable of and does so rather nicely.

The 690 was made to game on -- It just so happens the vast majority of you that are flashing and "modifying" your bios aren't doing it right and aren't modifying the drivers as well.

I agree. Look at the guy sitting on top of 3d Mark 11 p score; I am sure it's modded, or Kingpin with his ln2 record on a 690... again modded right...
Speaking of which, send me a pm if you have got working one, and I understand that you are a business , so however we can transact per OCN, I am fine with that

The easy to say name and the pc mag press coverage has major epic lulz potential down the line with the kind of different hardware this will be ran on by noobs before all is said and done with.
The overall meme potential is very high so I am all for Titan no matter what the price is.

Get use to the name Titan on OCN ladies and gentleman, your going to hate it before it said and done with lol. Think "but can it run Crysis", but much worse.

I can't wait LOL

I wish I would have had your bios then for the 690 because even with increased voltage it wouldnt go past +135 core. Do you plan on writing a custom bios for titan? Id be very interested

Are all the gaming tests done with this disabled? What would happen if you enabled the function? would it increase anything in games? (ie: more computational power)

You need to enable the Double Precision units through the driver's control panel. Like so:



What this does is reroute processing tasks through the DP units instead of exclusively through the standard CUDA core pathways. While the Double Precision units have the capability to process draw calls, they do so at significantly reduced speeds due to their architectural nature and the fact there's only 896 of them. The simple fact of the matter is that games won't benefit from this extra computational power because they just don't use it.

Im not planing to buy another one, when finally my gtx 690 won't be enough maxing out every game, when that day comes, i'm pretty sure i will have to buy a new Pc anyway, cause as always happen, a new tech as DX12, DX13, etc will be launch and anyway we all will have to buy new PC, making your SLI TITAN 2K useless and pointless.
on what rig, certainly not the one in your sig...? wth.gif

I just learnt about the titan yesterdee. I was like "WAADAFAA IS THIS??"

I was eager to hear news on 700 series and the 8000 series... and was totally blindsided by this. I was holding up for either the 8970 or 780... but from benchmarks, TITAN looks like a solid card; and runs close to QUAD 690 in just SLI...

Other than the hefty sticker price drool.gif...

Thanks! Makes sense. Maybe GTX7xx will just be the TITAN without the DP cores.

1K is good longterm in actuality,this card should run almost every game out there for the next 4 years at least depending on the resolution(It will max out all the "fun" games at 1920x1080 for years to come). With the PS4 actually being less powerful than this by a longshot I dont think anyone who buys its right now will be disappointed down the line as we are still going to get console ports and most developers are going to realize most gamers in the PC world won't even be close to on a Titan.

1366x768 is the most popular gaming resolution right now in the world just to put things into perspective lol.

I'd say longer than 4 years if the person is willing to turn down a couple settings, but i'm guessing anyone buying this is not willing to do that. I'm willing to bet we won't see a single GPU outperform this card until late 2014 or so. The first card to even compare will probably be the GTX 880, and based on past performance increases in the X80 line it would only trade blows (but probably consume a lot less power and be cheaper).

The main problem I see happening is when PS4 games get ported over, they will look better, run at a higher resolutions, but still be coded bad and utilize the hardware less than they do on consoles. So even if Titan is incredibly faster than a PS4, I don't see it destroying every PS4 port. CDProjectRED has it right. Release games for PC, then do quality ports to the consoles. It's a win/win for both console gamers and PC gamers, not to mention the company. thumb.gif

I'm on the same boat as you, I just purchased a 690. I don't think titan is useless, just overpriced IMHO...
