The crazy rumor of $500 for a gimped Titan would have definitely hurt.
a single store doesn't say a thing.

Well was gaming earlier yesterday and display drivers didn't like my OC after all. Had to roll back from 1175 and just figured put it back at stock for now. Unless I could still push more voltage to make that stable but not sure if it's more voltage at this point or just pushing it too hard.

Just benching a bit. For gaming, this thing's superb.

They have no reason to lower the prices until they stop selling.

In market the prices are kept low with concurrence, if there aren't concurrent products (we know that any config of amd card wouldn't do as well as 2 titans, ok 4xhd7970 but you run in compatibility problems) builders have a reason to go down with the price only if they produce more than what they sell (it isn't the case for titan, wasn't for 690 and for 680).

If we know these mechanism, and think nvidia will more likely instead of throwing on the market too many gtx 780 build a 770 a 760,750, 740 to produce on their industries, going to hurt amd in a range where it is still powerful in sales.
This means the price will stay high, titan about 100-150 cheaper than now but not much less.

This is also due to the fact that they have a limited production capability for 28mm chips, and are quite expensive.

Nvidia announced that in a few year they are gonna open a new estabilishment to produce at 28mm, to produce much more units at a lower price.

When this will happen prices will drop when sales decrease but it will happen sooner than nowadays because of higher production. Or prices will for sure drop when amd comes in with cards at the same level.


This is the theory I learned about economics and microeconomy applied to the market of gpu for gaming.


I also think in 5 years we will have displays with retina, so for a 27" screen a resolution of about 5000x2600. This means that we will need much more powerful cards than now, 5 times the titans, and we will be at the beginning again. Have to pay lots of cash to have a good surround setup.

This will happen until the home gaming rig with surround isn't popular in 1 every 20 households. And we know nvidia has not a vision like that. And also amd. It's more apple to be able to innovate, and I don't think they are going in this direction.

I was with you up until you described a resolution as 'retina', now I think you should go and stand in the corner and think about what you've done tongue.gif

I was under the impression that a phillips would be enough. Some stuff to clean off the thermal goop and whatnot too.

Some of them use Torx screws, you'd have to check your card. I can't remember if it was a particular manufacturer or not

I "think" most of the newer ones do. It's a T6 I believe. I have 2 Titan SC, the older one is philips and newer is Torx.

Yeah, my Asus has a mix of Philips and Torx (can't remember if they were 6, 7 or even 8s) and that was brought 3 days after launch.

I'm sure I remember seeing someone on here having two identical cards, brought at the same time, then they realised they had different screw sets when they went to install their blocks
