People need to get over the whole price thing.
Nvidia are a business and although they are not innocent by any means the GTX Titan is a halo product and isnt trying to be anything else. It's the technology of tomorrow, available today. It's not mainstream and not meant for everyone that's whinging about the price. It's meant for people who want to pay the extra for the extra performance, either because they need it (anyone running surround) or admire the product enough to buy it. Even if price doesn't equal extra performance.
I know I've been needing and craving extra performance for months and am glad they did it. If I had the choice between an overpriced product that can offer me what I need performance wise now or nothing. I'd choose the overpriced product being released.
I don't see anyone crying about $30,000 4K TVs. It's simply new technology that isn't available yet, available now and it's the same for the GTX Titan. Not everybody drives supercars but I don't hear everybody whinging about the price of the Ferrari 458. It's demographic is a different market to the Corvette market just like the GTX Titan is appealing to a new market that Nvidia saw the need for. Above the GTX 680 which can not run games maxed at 1080P anymore.
Sure they charged a bit too much for it but the product was an experienment and designed to test the market and it seems to have succeeded. These rumours confirm that Nvidia seems to agree and wants a new product to sit underneath it. Which is good. GTX Titan needs competition even if it is from Nvidia itself.
If you can't afford a GTX Titan get over it and stop complaining. Nobody cares. No product comapres or competes with it, period. This is OCN and the whole reason people are attracted to this place are because of the elite groups of people like Vega with his rediculous surround setups. I'd like to think most of us here have rediculous set ups like that because if we didn't why on earth are you here? You don't join a supercar club with your Ford Focus and then go and mock how much they paid for their awesome cars no do you?
