I have two reference galaxy gtx 680 in sli... Can anyone confirm that this bios flash actually works and is stable? I really don't want to down clock after bios update to play a game. I want a stable bios and HAPPY CARDS:}-- and at the same time would like to have a 770!

Well, for one thing, you'd need to be stable at +500mhz on your memory. Are you good with that offset in SLI?

Really the only benefit is the increased clocks, but you'd be just as good just having someone mod your own BIOS to the clocks you know for sure you're stable at.

From what we know, it is a rebrand that is marginially better.  The rest of the complaints can be reserved until the reviews. 

I would agree with you. But unfortunately it does appear as though NVIDIA was sandbagging for a while as the Titan really could have been released back when the GTX 680 was released. Granted it made perfect financial sense for NVIDIA to release as they did for profit sake, but I don't see why consumers can't complain about a company not putting their best offering on the table but charging top dollar for the product. I actually would say that it's in the consumers power to fight this business tactic with their wallet. NVIDIA or any other company can act this way because of consumer demand and competition, or consumers being uneducated.

Nope. Didn't even tape out until early 2012 which means there were no production ready units til at least July/August and all of those went directly to Tesla AFAIK...

Why release a product that's 30% better when you can settle for 15% and still earn similar total profits?

(Nividia isn't the only one doing it.)

Because the 30% better product didn't exist in sufficient quantities at that point?

This was my guess...I wonder where they stand with gk110 now, in that are they riding the hot chip as long as they can knowing they have the hot chip only for a short time? If AMD were to release VI in Dec and crushes gk110, does NV have a gk110 to compete up their sleave, or does the slow yeild on these really mean that they have capped their GPUs until Maxwell?
