690 has been out for like 8 months or something now, and it still outperforms the equally priced alternative.. I'd say so

In short, yes.

I keep trying to justify Titan, but every time I come back to the same argument: Why would I want one slower card for $1000, when I can get a card with 2 GPUs that is faster for the same money?

The scaling of two GTX 690's in SLI (quad SLI) is terrible. That's the reason I say that if you're willing to get two Titans, it will be the fastest and most consistent multi-card solution you can purchase. Period. On its own, though, a single Titan isn't that great if it costs $1000.

The key part in all of this is that he in no way said he is only wanting a single-card setup. He's open to multiple cards, and CF 7970 Ghz or SLI 680 are going to blow Titan or a 690 out of the water for the same money.

He won't reach $1,000 even buying them new these days, but he'll be far from it if he buys used. This is the perfect time to find them too, with people selling their cards for Titan and all.

Although the Titan has:
  • less power demand
  • less heat output
  • shorter profile for small form factor
  • 6Gb of ram
  • no SLI worries
  • 100% gpu scaling at all times
  • GPU Boost improvements to allow overvoltage & improved OCing & GPU Boost ability

That's a helluva single card I must say for a 1080p display. But I will agree with you that it is hard to justify to spend $1000. Now if it was about $750, I would say it would be the overall better purchase when compared to the 690.
Then $1500 for Titan SLI would be a wet dream to bring into reality biggrin.gif

simple. do you want consistency of performance and smoother gameplay (lower frametimes) over raw fps. then go Titan.

We don't even know enough about the Titan. Have people tried overclocking it yet? Drivers still have time to be improved by nvidia.

I went through the same problem last night. I really adore the Titan and I wanted to want it, but in the end I just couldn't find the excuse to put down that kind of money for FullHD. I' ve just sold my 7970CF set and was all set on getting rid of the multi-GPU problems, but when the Titan turned out to be only 33% faster than 680, 680 SLI turned out to be 9% faster than single Titan and EVGA 670 FTW has been established to be only marginally behind the 680, I ended up with 670 FTW SLI. The same amount of CUDA cores as Titan with just 2/3rd's of the price. Not quite as cool (neither literally nor otherwise), not free of multi-GPU problems, smaller frame buffer and memory bus, but fast and good value for FullHD. Besides, SLI seems to be working just fine at the moment: there were very few serious issues reported with the 690 in all the Titan reviews. For Crossfire, the situation ain't so pretty.

The 690 would have been nice too, but I was actually closer to buying the Titan than 690. If you're going for multi-GPU, you might just as well get two cards then.

I'm at 1600p, do not want SLI (various reasons & nothing against multi-card if others like that), and I'm having a very hard time pulling the trigger on a Titan. Performance is 10% less at 1600p than what I felt would be worth the price. Plus, I find it a little strange it clocks down so much with DP computing enabled. Not sure why that is.

Anyway, at 1080p, 120Hz or not, I would not suggest a Titan. Frankly, unless you need CUDA (ex. Adobe products other than Photoshop), I think 2x7950 in Crossfire would be a good performance/price set up. If you like the green team better, than 2xGTX670 in SLI. However, if you have any plans in the near future to go to a multi-monitor set up or perhaps even 1600p, then you might want to consider a Titan simply for the though of going Titan SLI when you do upgrade monitors. Very expensive, but 2xTitan in SLI does very, very well. 3xTitan gives insane performance (as it should for the price tongue.gif).

Meh... so much hardware, so little money redface.gif

There's like a dozen reviews already released on the card so performance is pretty well determined at this point. Of course future drivers could make a difference, but for gaming, it's pretty much the same thing as a GTX680/670/etc - just more of it. Where I see drivers making a bigger difference is in open CL computing. More than one review had crashes during testing of that (and/or unexpectedly low performance), and drivers were found to be the cause.
