I can't remember them ever allowing preorders, this is new for them I think.

I'm sure it will be one of the most reliable places to pre-order though. I'd hurry though, I bet there's already a pretty large queue judging by how fast the official EVGA site sold out.

So I'm confused, weren't people speculating the Titan to have around 85% of a GTX 690?
If so, doesn't this benches show the expected - and sometimes - better results?
http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/NVIDIA/GeForce_GTX_Titan/27.html

Are people disappointed cuz they felt lied to by Nvidia or they just didn't realize that 85% of a 690 would translate into a 30~40% of a 7970 GE?
I feel there is a lot of pick and chosing some games to justify bashing the Titan.
I understand the price is high - even if I had the money right now I couldn't justify buying one, but it seems to me that the Titan acomplishes what was supposed to do, be the fastest single GPU in the market with a small gap to Nvidia's dual gpu flagship, and with beta drivers no less. I'm not even talking about the fact that with a single card you don't have to deal with SLI / XF issues.
Still talking about the price, we all know that in the high end scheme of things price doesn't scale linearly with performance.

I was f5'ing and got in right away. I cam back hear to post but somebody already posted it.

Anyone that pays $1000 to run console ports is insane.

PC doesn't really get any big budget graphic pushing exclusives anymore and 99% of the games we get are console games ported to the PC with minimal visual differences.

PC gaming is not what it used to be since consoles took over, everything we play is designed with consoles in mind, not PC.

We also get games late and miss out on a ton of exclusives and other game genres such as JRPS and a lot of action adventure games.

It just doesn't make sense to spend this much on a card for anything other than bragging rights. like I said before. PC gaming is where we play console games with slightly better effects.

Maybe I'm a cynical a-hole, but I felt this is what the 680 should have been. $1000?

I think some people may be taking Ryan's quote out of context. With the default BIOS, the 265W limit is in place. And that is PEAK, not sustained as the limiter won't allow even peak consumption to go above 265W.

However, the BIOS can be modified as evidenced by Vince's results which use a MUCH higher Power Limit.

Duly noted, I'm ok with being called insane

Its tpu. Please look at other reviews that actually use proper equipment and you will see that their results make no sense a bunch of times.

I feel there is a lot of pick and chosing some games to justify bashing the Titan.
I understand the price is high - even if I had the money right now I couldn't justify buying one, but it seems to me that the Titan acomplishes what was supposed to do, be the fastest single GPU in the market with a small gap to Nvidia's dual gpu flagship, and with beta drivers no less. I'm not even talking about the fact that with a single card you don't have to deal with SLI / XF issues.
Still talking about the price, we all know that in the high end scheme of things price doesn't scale linearly with performance.

People are always disappointed it seems, even if this card beat the 690 by 10% I think half the thread would be people complaining about price.

Some people also don't understand that 60FPS on a single GPU tends to feel smoother than 60FPS on a multi GPU setup just because of the way SLI/CF works. This is something that's really hard to get on paper, and many people forget about it (or don't believe it exists...).

You also have other factors such as:
1) Matured 690 drivers vs Immature Titan drivers.
2) Not many games utlizing more than 2GB of VRAM.
3) 1x Titan is way more future proof, 2x Titans beats 2x 690s, 3x destroys everything.
4) Titan uses less power.
5) Titan is quieter.
6) Titan runs colder.
7) With modified BIOS, Titan may reach that 1.2 to 1.3GHz core.

Honestly, i'm not sure why people are disappointed. $1000 is a lot but it's a very solid product, especially if you buy 2. From Day 1 we all knew this card was targeted towards the .1% that were willing to drop $1k-$3k on GPUs.

Slightly? PC is leaps and bounds above consoles in every aspect when it comes to graphics...
