But matching GTX 780 is enough IMO, Titan already faced its demise with the release of GTX 780, and with the new GTX 780 Classified/ GTX 780 Lightning the Titan market is getting smaller and smaller . These cards posses a huge threat to the Titan even after OC, and are faster even at stock.
ALL AMD needs now is to trade-blow with the GTX 780. Titan is a small niche market that shouldn't be paid any mind.
Hint: All the 780 / OC variants are the Titan! It's the same card!...minus 2 SMX that cost $300
Everyone talks like it's a separate Brand. It's not. It's GK110. If you waited for the price drop and got a 780 or 2 you are just as happy or relatively broke as a Titan owner. Talk of the Titan market getting smaller and smaller and facing it's demise from the same GK110 780 is nonsense.
Those Titan people including myself do not feel threatened by our ...little brother. We're family. And if the normal progression occurs and the new AMD gen comes out and, god forbid, the price drops on our niche Titans to say current 780 levels...great. I'll arrange to have one more and be happy for a couple more years at near best 2*SLI performance.
This is OCN, the Only thing that put's the Titans demise on the table for those who were crazy enough to get one is Nvidia's next gen. Face it, if the price drops due to competition, we'll just get another, that's why getting the Best "single" card right now just may work for a while. If AMD gets that Title for a while, great for them and then their card owners can employ the same. Note we are the crazy ones. Where price apparently didn't matter for the single card best and the extra performance gives some legroom when and if we get that additional card.
780 / Titan / 780 Lightning / 780 Classified.
Besides if you mess with us, uncle Maxwell is standing in the wings...sitting and waiting. (New Gen to New Gen)
I just took a frank look at what I wrote. OMG I have FB syndrome.../hides in shame.
