I'm questioning my already purchased 2x 7970 wave2.gif If this is true i'll probably sell one and keep the other in my AMD rig or my 3570k rig until i can get two 8970s.

the thing is the consumers are now out of money, they will hardly sell 780 and titans to buy 8xxx or maxwell next year as we are getting to state where single 780 can provide 55+ avg fps on 1600p in latest games aside of crysis 3, meaning on 1440p its 60+ fps so they dont have to upgrade for few years. the number of people running oc 75+Hz 1440/1600p is insignificant in regard to sales and these people have already purchased 2+ 780 or 2+ titans.

so all in all, right now nvidia will have a great year, next one, two years not so much

you are forgetting games like Crysis 3, Metro Last Light, Tomb Raider which at their max settings bring the current high end GPUs to their knees . Even with a GTX Titan Crysis 3 cannot be played with SMAA 4x or MSAA 4x at 2560 x 1440 at 40 fps. same for Metro Last Light with max settings and SSAA or TombRaider with max settings and TressFX enabled at 1440p . With games like BF4 coming for this holiday faster single GPUs will always be in demand.

but these are games you can play with fxaa or 2msaa and after 10-20 hours you wont ever play these games again smile.gif now if i were on 30inch 1600 i would tune up msaa more but on 27inch 1440p fxaa is sufficient
from other topics it sounds 8970 might be few months away and with 6gb and game bundles 780s will have it hard, well we shall see. i mean i played most games this year on 660ftw 3gb @1080 and was getting 42+50 avg fps, @1440p it was 30-40avg fps, so when i upgrade to 780 or 8970 i will be absolutely comfortable

Cancel them and get either a GTX780 or wait for AMD's offerings.

My single titan merks all the current games I play except for Metro LL with SSAA and Crysis 3 with max MSAA, I was planning on getting a second titan so I could get better performance in Crysis 3 and Metro, but I defiantly feel rubbed the wrong way after 780 launch, wish the 8970 was coming out in june with those rumored specs, I have a local guy willing to pay $950 for my titan unsure if I'm going to sell it or not..

How much did you originally get your Titan for?

TBH if you have someone willing to give you $950 for it I'd personally probably take it right now and go to 2 x 780's (or wait for the 8970 if the rumors are true)

I paid $1100 CAD, got it on special, so I don't mind taking a $150 loss, but I'd rather wait for 8970 if those are the true specs

These specs might be overblown or Amd might have got this but they dont plan to use it on 8970. Maybe we're looking at Titan Rival. Or 8970 could be a trimmed down version of this chip just like GTX 780(trimmed Gk110) and GTX Titan(full Gk110). I hope its just 8970!! that would kick Nvidia's butt real HARD!! smile.gif

Wouldn't it be awesome if the next X790 comes out as a Titan killer in Q3 this year...

Oh well. Still gonna get the 680s if this deal holds. Way too great of a discount with water blocks to pass up on. I'm not willing to wait on a very big maybe with an unknown ETA.
