Now that our titan is successfull and beat out 690 on sale, lets put out a junior titan same chip but 10% slower than titan and since there's no competition lets price it $650.00 and I bet you it's still going to sell because people will figure it out that overall price/perf is better than titan. Think about it, people are not letting go of their 7970 because of its 3g vram and 384 bit bus, people will let go of their 670/680 because it only have 256 bus.

Now lets present 780 with 3 gb vram and 384 bit bus and 20% plus faster than 7970/680. We will be hitting 2 birds in one stone. For those people with gpu lesser than 7970/680, 780 is the perfect upgrade for them this year! Now, nvidia have 3 potential consumer buying the gtx 780, a brilliant strategy indeed!
Nice strategy and all , but im sorry bro, some people with a 7970 will drop theirs for a gtx 780 since it IS an upgrade lol (like me)

Here's how I justify purchasing a TITAN: 1) because it launched first, 2) because I could buy it, and 3) because the performance gap was quite big comparing to the GTX 680.

So the 780 offers 2 and 3 but for $350 less. TITAN market is dead. You gotta be a dupe to pay $350 more for it, unless you really need to be a benchmark king, or you really need it for ultra res surround.

In my case, it wasn't so bad. I paid full price only for the first TITAN, and bought the second on a discount for only $600 (had a $400 bonus on a local store). I sold the $150 F2P bundles @ ebay, and managed to get about $139 back (I spent a few codes on Hawken and Planetside 2). So, in essence, I spent $1461 for my sli TITANs (excluding taxes). So that's $161 more for I think ~20% more performance than SLI 780s (not sure about these numbers though).

Not much of a market I admit but there are also those that purchase a Titan as a way cheaper K20 alternative. Titan offers legitimate pro-sumer capabilities that the 780 simply doesn't have. As for mere gaming, sure the 780 makes more sense for most people (even I've admitted I'd buy 780's now over Titans) but I think Nvidia has said all along that Titan was a boutique product and not expected to be any kind of volume seller. It is basically what it was always intended to be...

True. I was forgetting about the professional market looking for a cheap alternative to a tesla. You're right.

That's a complete bs statement made by nvidia. They knew all along that there was no competition and amd is getting hammered by a bad frame rate issue publicly. They took advantage of the situation and it worked and the titan is the bait fo 1k price point...and it begins.....you fell for their bs but in a way you still feel good because you still owned the fastest gpu on the planet which is the neutralizer for nvidia to the people that they screwed....

really all I want is a gpu that will play modern games smoothly at a respectable level that allows me to appreciate what the game has to offer visually, on a single 1080p display.

Do you have $650.00? A single Gtx 780 is the boss on a single monitor @1080p..A perfect upgrade for you....

I've long had the money to buy such things and don't from seeing such price shifts. Not a matter for helping other consumers, I find the pricing offensive and work around it.
