Also I'm curious how NVIDIA would handle a possible 790 with quad SLI out of the picture. No 790 SLI?
Considering the 780 is pretty well the Titan as it is...a Dual-GPU Titan/780 Board could be either Terrible, or a Godsend. If done, Nvidia could change their stance on the 780 and Quad-SLI. Or more likely, a $1500 Dual-GPU 780 board might be...over...board. Pun intended. Even if made, there's nothing that says a dual-gpu board must work in quad-sli configuration. Even now, you can plug 4 780's in but the driver will say you can only SLI 3 of them, and use the 4th as a PhysX processor. I assume the exact same scenario would take place in a dual-gpu board configuration, though I do find it unlikely to happen.
And to answer your other question, no the Titan is capable of a Quad setup. However, as there are currently no CPU's that can be paired up with the power of 4 GTX Titans. It's just overkill. It's not so much that CPU's are terrible. A 5GHz 8-core CPU, for example, would be more than powerful enough. The problem is that games are not written to fully utilize 6 or 8 core architectures at the moment. That is why I'm excited about the advent of the PS4/Xbox1. Both running x86 8-core AMD cpu's. Meaning...games are going to be developed with 8 cores in mind. And that will translate to great performance when developing games cross-platform through something like CryEngine, Unreal Engine, Frostbite 3, etc etc..But by then, Nvidia will be looking at their 800 series line instead of just milking the last bit out of Kepler.
