No point in quad 690 anymore, you will just run into a vram wall. A single 690 still a better deal. The only place where this will shine is if you are going to be buying 2 or 3, for benchmarking and stuff... maybe gaming at tripple 1600 which not a lot do. Im looking forward to more demanding games rather than the hardware right now.

Do you think AMD's going to surprise us by releasing 8970 in 2 months?

they've pretty much confirmed that the 7970GHz is the fastest product they will have for all of 2013. Sure they tried to circle around the questions but that's what they ended up saying.

You guys have to understand, most gamers will never ever see a Titan, so if Nvidia wants to sell to gamers they could easily knock off $400-500 of it's price tag and cripple compute.

Nvidia would make a killing.

Or do you think they'd be better off making the 780 only 10-15% faster than a 680 since it's going to sell like hotcakes anyway?


Both 680s and 7970s are selling well. Titan is not a high volume part, it's a K20 bound part that didn't make the cut. It seems likely they just stockpiled enough of them and saw they performed well enough for graphics that they made a product out of them.

You will not see any faster video cards then the 7970/7990 from AMD this year.

Besides Titan we don't have any reason to believe Nvidia is doing anything differently than AMD. There is talk of a reference AMD 7990 being released though.

Buying hardware for benching and finding you just waste money because you got and avg overclock is just priceless.

Now I'm wondering if some guys here know how to really overclock lol or they just need to buy more stuff to be competitive XD.

Do you think AMD's going to surprise us by releasing 8970 in 2 months?

AMD doesn't need to counter a 1000$ card that - lets not kid ourselves, very few people are going to buy a 1000$ card. More than 99% of the market sweet spot is 200-300$.

And then you have the fact that PC gamers are mostly console ports, the landscape of PC gaming can't justify the cost of a 1000% titan that has more microstutter and less speed than a GTX 690 that costs the same. That is, unless youre doing something like 3x 1440p monitors or something along those lines. Surround could justify 2 of them if you don't sneeze at the thought of 2000$ for graphics cards.







The hardware kepler frame metering gives 680 SLI less microstutter than a single Titan.

why do you think GTX TITAN has more microstutter? Ok can you post evidence? please

Edit: oh are those the evidence, can you explain when you have more microstutter acording this charts?
