There's been some time to observe and to think about how to improve these guys. I'm sure they found a few ways to tweak them and get a lower tdp in Ti.
Honestly, I think they should be concentrating on their weak points rather then good or great ones. Someone buying this card knows it will need a good amount of power.
Some areas to improve:
-scaling (beyond two cards is pretty meager sometimes)
-allow Surround with more then three monitors (ie Eyefinity 5x1 & 2x3)
-price....yes, price needs to come down or set reasonably ("blah, blah, blah, Titan is a luxury item, blah, blah, blah")
-Allow 4-way 780 officially
to compete better with 290 and 290X. The extra grunt may come in handy in extreme resolution Surround and 4k.
Btw, I'm curious to what happened to the original Kepler gpu??? The GK104 was meant as a midrange core but it did so good they made it its top tier cards (670/680/690) so the original top tier card Kepler was held off since because the middle-weight guys had the grunt for Tahiti.
Titan and 780 are crippled Tesla cards. Many thought Titan was the "original" GTX 680 but it was a softened up professional level card. So this brings into question, what happened to this all powerful Kepler we never got? Will it be Maxwell? If you think about it, gk104 is a 256bit core so I'm sure we may see a 512bit card soon (thank amd
) and that was meant to be the original GTX 680. Well, by Maxwell's entry, GTX 680 maybe relegated to a medium range card (GTX 860 and 860 Ti
