I agree. I'm really disappointed in the SLI performance. I saw one graph where SLI Titans were only about 7fps faster than CF 7970's. Hell, I have CF 7970's right now! It would make much more sense to just add a third and be done with it...

In my current build, Muzzle Flash, I've spend as much money on "bling" and "flash" than I have just on raw technology.

To some, there is more than just "performance per dollar" ratios.

I'm not saying this is the end all card, but seriously, I'd love to see how 3 or 4 of these cards stack up when water cooler and over clocked. The 690 doesn't do well for OC'ing. It OC's, but not much. I have a suspicion that this card will be much easier to OC than a 690 ... not to mention not having issues with drivers and SLI optimization when you just use a single card. Not to mention, all the reports are saying that it doesn't sound like a jet engine taking off when at load, unlike a GTX 690.

As far as anything from AMD, well, for games, there might be better, but then again, ONE of my GTX 580's kicks the ever loving snot out of the top of the line AMD card as far as Folding@Home goes. I'm pretty sure, since Stanford has already white listed the Titian, it will utterly destroy anything from AMD, and when properly OC'd, even the GTX 690.

No, this card isn't for everyone, especially those who only look at "performance per dollar" ratios, but that doesn't mean it doesn't have it's target market. You just aren't in that market.

You're right...the target for this card is someone who will grossly overpay by $500 to say they have the fastest card on the planet which is only marginally faster then other cards half its price. Go for it buddy. Have at it. You now own a $500 video card with about $500 worth of unused VRAM and a nice cooler thumb.gif

Though, it should be lower and we should have had 8K cards by now.

Why should you have to overclock a $1000 GPU for it to perform like a $1000 GPU should? doh.gif

Not to mention these never settle bundles that amd keeps rolling out with. I might have to get a 2nd 7970 so i can get crysis 3 and bioshock for free with it.

To be honest I was thinking the same, the Nvidia drivers etc are way better than AMD.

Having owned and used both, I ended up settling with a GTX 670 Gigabyte WindForce 3 highly oc'd for my rig. So, in my opinion, obviously yes, but I'm sure you'll be hearing from a flood of people any second now defending their respective preferred brands.

As stated earlier, the 690 frame latency is much higher than the Titans. The Titan will likely feel smoother even if it is getting 10%-15% less FPS. This is something the majority of reviews fail to ever mention, and lots of people aren't even aware about. SLI/CF setups push high FPS, but remember that the smoothness will be less. Titan dominates frame latency...

Go with the Titan. Less power use, less heat, more future-proof, and you probably won't notice the performance difference due to frame latency and microstuttering. Too many people look at sheer FPS and think "omg more is better!". It's simply not true anymore.

Sorry, going to disagree. HardwareCanuck's already posted here and said the Titan's frame latency more than makes up for the FPS loss.

The worst part is, you can't get over 1.2v or 265w tdp. So say bye bye to those 1200mhz Overclocks, no way titan stays below 265w when gaming at 1200, you will get downclocked immediately.

Judging by the frametimes, Titan delivers a much smoother gaming experience than the 690 or the 7970. I'd happy trade 15% performance for smoother fps.

Titan faster than 3x 7970 GHz

Is it just me or does this look off?
post #380 of 3575
I said this before and i'll state it again: Nvidia won me over this round and I love my lightning 680 sli setup. The titan is undoubtedly an amazing GPU but the price is completely stupid -- even overclocked it cannot beat a GTX 690 and this is very relevant because IT IS THE SAME PRICE! Sorry, the additional VRAM is worthless and is not a means to justify the price.

If it were 100$-200$ cheaper, this would be a much more appetizing card. As is, there is absolutely no incentive for me to trade in my lightning 680s for a single Titan -- the 690 is 15% faster than the Titan, and my Lightnings are 15% faster than the 690. Why downgrade for 1000$? Come on, that price is absurd.
