Radeon owner: "It's too high, LOL amd's going to destroy them. $XX is an outrage, talk about price gouging!" (as though a top-end card is an essential to life)
Anyone who just bought a high-end card recently: "Darnit, I should have waited..."
Anyone who was expecting super-high stratospheric near-Titan-remotely price ranges: "Wow, I knew it was going to be low! Just ordered two!" (even though they were saying the contrary a day before)
Anyone who was expecting normal-ish pricing: "Just clicked buy, mine's due in tomorrow!" (most people including the general gaming market that just knows a new card is coming soon and is oblivious to all of this rampant speculation)

That is, of course, barring it coming out at $979 biggrin.gif.


You know, that price would actually solved my dilemma of which GPU to go with.
Since then I wouldn't feel bad to go with a Titan, instead of GTX 780 tongue.gif.

But yeah, no one really wants that to happen, me neither.
Cause even if the GTX 780 would cost 700$, you could get 2x 780, for only a 400$ more than a single Titan, and you would have an amazing SLI set-up.
Instead of going 1000$ x2, and had to pay that 600$ more, for only 10%-20% more FPS.....usually only max 5 - 10 FPS.

youd be looking at 40-50% more FPS if the Titan is 20-25% faster. not to mention it will be better for 4k resolutions

With the 7xx series launching, i hope the 670/680's drop a lot for me to grab one, drivers will be mature, and enough info on them for some OC goodness.

This would be the first time i have not bought a new line of card straight off though... (480 has lasted a silly amount of time)

I think the majority of us dont necessarily need a new card. Performance jumps within the past few years has been pretty negligible in real world. Its the excitement and thrill of getting a new device and overclocking it imo. I dont even play that many games seriously anymore.

Im looking forward to trying sli for the first time and trying surround though. I got some really nice speakers recently and im hoping the surround experience is worth the effort

I belive its the future of pc gaming and what will continue to separate us from consoles

same here, would be nice to get a 670 for around $300 (non ref).

Say that to my 4K screen and my GTX570

You kind of prove my point. Why dont you have a 670 or 680? The performance jump wasn't that impressive tbh.

How do you mean I said it because it would run like crap.
Too little vram too weak of a core.

GTX680 is like settling for mediocrity.
I need a real big chip gpu I would like to keep it single so even a Titan won't suffice.
post #599 of 1081
I remember when i went from my 4870 to the GTX 480, it was over double the performance, and i was lucky to get it at the price it was, but that card was WORTH it's price tag at that time, it was so much faster.

Since the refresh of Fermi (GTX 580/570) nothing is worth the cash imo.....

A 680 is at best 35% faster in real world testing, this does not warrant a 400-500 price tag for me...




We are talking before overclocks here (most of us here on OCN do overclock)

Now picture my situation, or someone else's sitting on any top end Fermi gen card... unless they upgraded for a proper reason to GTX 600 series, they got ripped off.

Fermi when OC'd narrows the not so large gap even tighter, my exact card would be looking at around a 20% difference tyo a stock 670/680 give or take....

ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS FOR A 3 year old GPU!


We do not purchase a said product for OC capabilities, we buy based on it's factory performance/price unless most of you have millionare sized wallets, or lost a few brain cells here and there.

I feel GPU's are just becoming stale..... the whole PC thing to me, is becoming very boring.....

AMD are not fighting hard enough in the CPU market, GPU's do not gain performance like they used to each generation...

Myself and many others (including n_v marketing) felt n_v burned us for $100. !!!They did.!!! I feel they were greedy with titan.

If n_v is guilty of over pricing they'll historically give it back to us. I'm guessing GTX780@$499 to $550. Your 100% correct and I agree. They nvidia and amd do listen loud and clear. I'm buying into it.

I still have my 480's I bought at launch LOL.

From your lips to Nvidia's ears thumb.gifthumb.gif
I don't care what it means for my personal purchase, as an existing Titan owner, but this is absolutely the right thing to do. If I can afford to spend the way I did, it does not bother me to eat a loss.
Cheers!
