Hope that makes some sort of sense.

Yes but later i still can get a second GTX 690. i was thinking if Titan been a Tesla tecnology in fact could have more potential while Drivers improve on time, or if Titan could even overpass GTX 690 in some point at the time, i dont know i'm just speculating with out any base.

I am pretty sure Nvidia can change improvements in Titan's favor.

+1, if drivers increase on Titan also goin to be increased on GTX 690

The 690 is almost a year old, much improvements have been made to it on the driver side in that time. It seems likely to me that the gap as small as it seems now (9% in some cases) will only get smaller as driver support improves. Time will tell though.

As for your situation if I only had 1k to spend I belive I would skip both 690 and titan and go with 2 680s or 2 7970ghz. One Titan doesn't make a ton of sense to me.

Well you might be right on that one , if performance improves with the drivers and you add in OC the performance might match 690.
There's another thing though , availability ...

Because it is , but they changed a lot of stuff too , story is back on track at least it relates to Crysis 1 , you play actual character not some mindless zombie without voice , maps are bigger , psycho is back .... just from the top of my head.

Hope that makes some sort of sense.

With the added caveat that you do not use more than 2GB VRAM in anything you do.

As stated, as long as you don't break the 2GB limit. Then you're probably better off selling your 690, using that money + and the 2nd card you were going to get, and pick up 2 titans, which will be much better than 2 690s. Its been shown, stated, harped on and beaten bloody. Titan is mostly for 2x configurations and then it will blow you away, far more so than 2 690s.

Yeah for sure, but the scaling on two Titans versus dual 690's should be better by then. I don't know how much we can really expect Titan to improve over the rest of the 600 series, if there are gonna be improvements I'd bet there will also be improvement on the 690.

Basically what Majin said lol

the bench charts from Guru3D are missing a few GPU's of importance.
even though we can just about estimate what's what and where it goes, it just seems to me the chart is incomplete.

call me picky or complicated, I do not mind..

Agreed. If I could only get one card it wouldn't be a Titan. But two will be amazing, especially under water when we get the bios mods...

Why would you believe that Nvidia wound also work on increasing drivers on GTX 690 anymore in favor of Titan? please?

Surely, you jest. You don't actually think they would shoot the major majority of their clients in the back to focus on the enthusiast minority which is getting the titan, just to make us feel better.

I'm banking a lot on the fact that I'm putting mine under water, and soon there will be bios mods to allow me to hit 1.2ghz core. I'll be very happy with the card if it reaches those clocks.
