Sure, as a Titan owner, I paid top dollar for maximum performance - Price/Performance ratio wasn't really considered, but still.
That being said it's not a tremendous leap over the 680, ranging from 30-45% over it.
So this makes a very odd pricing decision, as there's realistically only so much performance it can have over the 680 without performing the same as a Titan... A $500 gap is much larger than a 30-45% performance gap.
That is exactly why I think it will be 15-20% faster than the 680 and be $600. This also means that they can price the 770 around ~$450.
Titan at $1k and being 25% faster than the 780 I don't believe will hurt the Titan sales at all.
Edit: Every other generation Nvidia has a card that just does not make sense price/performance wise. This generation it is the Titan. On one had people that buy the card do not care about price/performance, but on the other hand Nvidia can't be so stupid to cannibalize their own card sales by undercutting a card by such a large price gap.Edited by criminal - 5/13/13 at 12:26pm
