Cool. I made a correct assumption for a change
Yes I believe multi-GPU scaling/performance is all taken care of at the driver-level, therefore we'll see no surprises with 3 and 4-card setups with 780s. Unless of course, the life of the 780 coincides with some magic Nvidia can whip up to drastically increase the scaling beyond what we've so far seen. Though it may just be a case of them not giving it the attention it would require. They may just focus on the most popular multi-card setup, 2-way, and do the bare-minimum for anything beyond that.
No, Titan owners did not get "screwed". I don't know where everyone has been for past generations, but there is always a premium for the flagship. Just because the gap may have increased does not mean the concept is no longer valid. And do note the fact that Titan came out months
before the 700-series is. It was major performance increase and came relatively long before the next generation did. Not only that, the 6GBs of VRAM attests to the fact that it was aimed at Surround/UHD gamers, which more likely than not, means that gamer has money. Nvidia knew this and priced it at what they thought would maximize their profit.
Judging from current availability and pricing, I'd be able to sell my Titan for $900 all day. Say it even drops down to $800 by the time I'm ready...that means I enjoyed the fastest GPU on the planet, for many
months, and only spent a net of $200. I consider that totally worth it, and quite frankly, the opposite of "getting screwed".
