In other words, I assumed it would be differentiated from the 700 series by more than the name. As I have now stated in this thread three times, that is my own fault. I assumed too much.
And I did think the Titan wouldn't really be touched until Maxwell. I didn't think we'd see another 384-bit card. I didn't think we'd see an entire series released with the "premium" cooler. I thought Titan would be differentiated by more than just name, yes. And you are right, that is my own personal problem, and I take full responsibility for it.
Edit: And since you're so intellectually superior to me, I may as well use this opportunity to try to better myself. What websites should I have read or research should I have done that would have showed me that the 780 to be released in 3 months was going to be exactly a Titan (down to the cooler) with a few less shaders and VRAM? I would love to know so I am not subjected to the same mistakes again in the future. Thanks.
This website, and the many it links to on a regular basis, all have educated guess/speculation/theory crafting (call it what you want) on what the next products will look like. Heck, a year ago I was even stating the 700 series will have a 3GB/384-bit configuration.
Just following the evolution of the industry pointed to exactly what is happening now. There aren't really any surprises, just "Ooohh.....aaaaahhhh......weeeeee! New flashy toys!".
So to try and make out Nvidia to be some monster, or any company for that matter, because of what you did/thought is completely wrong.
Heck, even in the Titan launch thread people were discussing the 780 and this EXACT situation...

It will also be the only one of the 700 series that uses a trimmed down GK110.Edited by PostalTwinkie - 5/22/13 at 2:02pm
