It should run cool and use fairly little power because it's 2 mid range chips bolted together.

The 690 should have been a $1,000 dual Gx110 behemoth like the 590 before it.

I really don't think amd plays much of a part in nvidias release/price schedule in all honesty. Its like apple, they are their own competition with the other players not really meaning much to them.

How can AMD not play a part?

If GK104 couldn't compete with the 7970 at launch, it could have never been called 680 and cost $500. ( $50 less than 7970 ) Clearly, NVIDIA was looking at AMD's pricing when they decided to undercut them. Remember, early leaks of GK104 were 670TI.

They didn't lower 680 prices, because quite frankly, they didn't have to since it was still selling so well. A company lowers prices when they HAVE to, and they throw bonuses on top ( FREE games ) to make their products more appealing.

Notice, NVIDIA doesn't have to give away the farm to help their products sell, 7990 on the other hand comes with 8 free games.

Titan was priced at $1000 since it was the fastest single GPU by 35%, came with 6GB RAM & 1/3FP32 to justify its price increase, this led them to market it as a "premium product" just like the 3960X is.

I will agree that NVIDIA doesn't have to play the Price / Performance card, as much as AMD has to, but to think NVIDIA doesn't look at AMD makes no sense. This is a duopoly afterall.

And here's a perfect example of pricing.

590 was $749, since 6990 was $699, and both cards were about equal.

The performance of 590 could not justify a $1000 price tag, which was the price of 2 580's.

Likewise the new AMD HD 7990 is a monster, just a bit late in the game.

$1000 on a single GPU (GTX Titan) just seems extortionate, especially when one isn't even enough to get playable fps in 1440P on newer games..

Depends on what you mean by playable fps and at what settings.

It can definitely drive FC3 at 50+fps with everything but MSAA maxed (I got mine at x2). I think that does a damn good job personally.

I have to agree. I don't have a 1440p monitor (yet), but settings can be adjusted to play games at a good quality level. That is why so many people have already opted to get a Titan over a GTX690. Heck, I have seen people sale a GTX690 to get a Titan. A larger more powerful GPU is still always better.

I've been playing DayZ (Arma2), Arma3 and BF3 on High with 0 issues on a single 7950 for a couple days at 2560x1600

The only game that's a pain for me is Crysis 3 with everything maxed, a mildly overclocked Titan comes within 10% of SLI 670s without the frame variance. I would have thought most people would agree that 670 SLI has enough grunt for 1440p

Of course it does!  I play @ 1440p with 1 670 FTW.  Can play with mostly all games maxed sans AA.  (AA isn't too much of a big deal at this point, just use a little FXAA)

 

Still looking forward to getting my second 670 though :P

yeah C3 after the latest driver can be maxed @ 1440p with some fxaa or medium txaa and rock a steady 60fps


too bad C3 is boring but looks stunning

I'm not trying to be rude, but this is definitely an exaggeration. I play @ 2560x1440/1600 and Crysis 3 "maxed out" definitely dips below 60 fps at times. (see sig for my rig info, using 680 lightning SLI) There are actually quite a few games that will dip below 60 a lot maxed out on a single 680, although you can find acceptable compromises by lowering IQ a bit. You certainly can't max every single game in existence out at 1440/1600p with a single 680, unless you don't mind a few framerate dips below 60.
