I think Titan and his little brother are just going to hold us over until the refresh, which Nvidia may be releasing later than expected now, and are using Titan and Titan Jr. to hold us over longer 2cents.gif



Just because ASUS & EVGA are the exclusive launch partner for Titan in the NA region doesn't mean MSI don't have Reference Titan for sale. Eventually that Region exclusivity xould go away and Everyone could sell everywhere and at that time MSI could have binned enough chips for some Lightning.

Whenever AMD guys come into a thread talking about Nvidia GPU's....


THE THREAD BECOMES POINTLESS SHORTLY AFTER THAT.

Limited supply is one guess as to the $1k price, but I wonder how much protecting their compute business is at play, not wanting those with pockets to use cheaper consumer cards over their really high margin stuff.

That's awesome. Well then I do indeed hope there is some truth to the Titan Lightning speculation. Though if they're locked down with hardware limitations then they'll be a waste of money for me, as I already don't have trouble keeping them below 80C. MSI may have learned their lesson with the 680 Lightning. We got lucky with those because they were built without hardware limits, and once that unlocked BIOS got out it was great (though I'm sure someone would have edited it anyways sooner or later and found out there's an extremely high hardware limit). But if the Titan Lightning is designed to be locked down, then I fear we're in for a disappointment, like those that bought a 680 Lightning before finding out it has to be flashed to be enjoyed.

That world be an epic single gpu......

I know I would ditch these quickly... LOL

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?

Hmmm, did you read the title right? It's "overclock".net and not "e-peen".net...People started this site cause they enjoyed overclocking hardware, and that involves cheap hardware as well. In fact, people first started overclocking to match the performance of the more expensive cpu with a cheaper model...And there's the benchmarking stuff also.
I agree that so far it's the fastest single gpu solution, and logically Nvidia can charge whatever they want for it tongue.gif (which they do), but I don't dig the weak vrm the reference model has.
I'm interested in this Titan jr. card, wonder if we will see non-ref models soon aswell...I don't wanna spend a small fortune and have my gpu burst into flames cause I fed it 1.4v at -140c...

Hello. price to performance is horribly bad on the Titan and it will be only slightly less horribly bad on the Titan jr. Maybe you misread the title but this is not an 'overclocking cheap hardware' thread.

If price performance is paramount then there's a 7850/460 (or 4) with your name on it.

Edited and put bold because I wanted to be clear bold is fact, not opinion. (for gaming). Titan price/performance is horrible unless you are an academic possibly trying to not pay tesla prices for decent compute.

Indeed, the "you're criticizing something because you can't afford it" argument really doesn't hold water here. The Titan isn't a price/performance purchase and the people who own them are well aware of that fact. Obviously price/performance isn't the only deciding factor when buying hardware though.

If this turns out to be the new 780, I'm in. I've ridden 560 Ti sli from their launch in 2011 to last week when I went SFF. It's time for a change!

What are they going to call this card? They already messed up their traditional naming convention with the REAL GTX 680 (Titan), what are they supposed to call this one? Titan SE? There WAS a GTX 460 SE card, so it's probably Titan SE for me.
