You are correct, Nvidia has supported quad in their drivers for as long as I can remember. I suppose I should have said they have never officially advertised it on their cards, at least not that I can remember. It has always been one of those "It works, but Nvidia isn't pushing it" situations.

My lord they even stuck the "premium" cooler on the 780 and 770. Not so premium anymore, huh?
If you want to compare to the 3970X, how happy do you think people would be if Intel had released the 3960X and the 3820 for 3 months without saying a word about the 3930K, and then dropped it at almost half the cost of the $1000 3960X 3 months down the road? You think all those people that bought the 3960X's would be happy? I think not. At least those of you who bought the 39x0X know you're blowing an extra $400 just for the sake of blowing $400 when you do it.
Then again, that's why it is my fault. It is only my fault. No one clicked the buy button for me. I listened to them. I bought in. I got burned. Lesson learned.
Eh, I am not sure you under stand what a "Series" is...
Titan is not any part of a series, it is the Titan.
Then you have the 700 SERIES, 600 SERIES, 500 SERIES, etc.
In the world of cars and trucks you have the Ford F SERIES, BMW 3 SERIES and 5 SERIES, etc....
Nvidia didn't lie, not one bit. If you thought Titan was going to be some monster one of a kind to never be surpassed, that is your own personal problem and I would recommend further research.
