Titan itself as a gaming card is overpriced, but 1.) Titan also doubles as a professional workstation card. 2.) This card is late. It offers performance that we can already get, so why does it deserve a price higher than the 780? 3.) Sorry to say, but it is an AMD card. Refer to the drastic and fast price drop of the 7990. It is faster than the 690, but yet AMD had to drop the prices pretty quickly because the sales were not there.
AMD doesn't need to price this card based around the Titan.They need to price it to compete with the 780 and because they need sales.
I have a question. The never settle bundles came with multiple games and did not increase the cost of the card itself. Why s everyone speculating that BF4 is driving up the cost of the card? If it in fact is and the card sales for $720, then someone could pick up a 780 and BF4 for basically the same price. The 290X should include the game as a bonus, so the game shouldn't drive the card prices up. Am I missing something?
I'd have to disagree with GTX TITAN as a workstation card , unless you define workstation card as a bunch of CUDA cores to use iray/Octane/Blender on (SLI GTX 580 would be better for that and less than half the cost).
Geforces don't have the benefits of Quadro drivers so it's only good for CUDA cores, which means you might as well get cheap GK104 cards in Tri-SLI. GTX TITAN is faster than the GK104s for workstation "viewports" and not by enough to matter.
i.e. Maya it's neck and neck with GTX 680, also in Autocad , in CATIA you should be using a Quadro, in ensight/Inventor/Lightwave/Pro-E/Solidworks/NX GCN architecture smokes

The R9-290X might be a better workstation card.

I'd define it as workstation application performance and drivers though.Edited by AlphaC - 10/3/13 at 1:29pm
