Lol, this will do wonders for the PC gaming industry. How about 2K for the next Titan, it's not much of a halo product if it's selling in bulk right?

As I pointed out the situation was completely different a while back. $1400 for 8800GTX SLI and crysis 1 1080p at medium settings. Probably didn't get that good fps either.

And still. As you said, $1000. That also includes setups like the 690, 7970GHz CFX and so on. And according to your benches they wouldn't fare well either. So what's the issue with the Titan specifically?

On top of performing very close to the mentioned dual GPU setups when AA is really cranked up in games like crysis 3 it also offers the superior experience due to the single GPU. Also works everywhere. And OC's really well.

What's not to like?

Lets see last market value for high end gpus were $400-$500 (thanks to nvidia lets see whats the new price point) can have 2 new cards with 1k and enjoy 2 generations with the same amount of money..
Thats what not to like..

Yep, except you are forgetting that, assuming current trends, the titan will still be high end in the 800 series... and the titan is still better than the 680 and the 780. So, two generations of being on top, and then you get a card that theoretically will be in the x70 range for the third.

So why would you spend 500 on a 680, and then 500+ on a 780, when you can buy the Titan now... and it's better than the 780 anyways?

I think you're way out of your depth now to be honest, you dug yourself a hole with the 40FPS @1080p comment and have been sinking since. Is it really worth bring up the 7970s $550-$600 launch price at this point and pointing out the 680 launched for $499?

What will your argument be if the 780 comes in around $549-$600?

Because nvidia did it that way?

You guys are missing the big picture? Nvidia would not put his flagship card in jeopardy i mean come on lol..
Instead they give you a bunch of rebranded cards and a cut down version of titan as a 780 come on guys wake up..
post #88 of 338
Titan would last you 3 years if you purchase it now. Look at me, I bought 2 6970s for a total price of $610 (May 2011) and they are still running awesome. Max out anygame with the limitation of msaa ofcourse but hey, can't expect more from a $610 setup. Titan is a single card and I'm sure will it will be able to play games on decent settings for at least 3 years.

AMD cards are still priced the same. Nvidia just priced their new GPUs according to AMD's lineup and since AMD can't compete we don't get price drops.

To get $500 big Nvidia GPUs you needed a powerful and aggressively priced good AMD card called the 4870 and after that the 4890. And after that a success called the 5870 that went against the crippled, late and hot fermi that was only fixed for the 580 later that year.

Now that Nvidia has managed to do their stuff without making big mistakes, and has delivered the performance they set out to deliver, they are able to reap the rewards.

Who do we blame for no under $550 hexa core intel CPUs? Intel's pricing or lack of competition from AMD? Hint: It's the latter. Same goes for GPUs as well.

There are people in the titan thread maxing out 6GB of ram, while a single titan may not be able to put that to work (with this generation of games) multiple titans will. In which case, they would only be held back by the 4GB of ram the 690 has.
