To the lot of you: you're absolutely pathetic. Stay Puft you in particular seem to only service the purpose of going to every nvidia thread you can find and try to find a way to derail it into the typical flame war based on the same tired beaten dog arguments. It's old. It's boring. Enough.
Price is price, you don't like it, you don't buy it, that's the best way to make your voice heard. You think nvidia PR and sales teams look at your posts and take them seriously? Please. What's more, try maybe bringing meaningful discussions to the table to make it worthwhile to debate and discuss perhaps? I could easily reverse the same argument with AMD and talk about how the 7990 was exorbitantly high just because nvidia was at the same price point. And to add insult to injury, the card released with TERRIBLE problems: coil whine, cooling issues with gpu 1, and stuttering to high heaven. Within THREE MONTHS the price had fallen 20 PERCENT (from 1k to 800). Within TWO MONTHS of that, the price had fallen another TEN PERCENT from launch price (12.5% over price at the time) to $700, with some cards to be had for as little as $670. So within FIVE MONTHS of launch, the cards had dropped a whopping 30% and driver issues STILL prevented them from being used well with multi display (to this day for that matter). Bet that must have stung like hell for consumers. Oh and before you try and make some claim like well they realized it didn't make sense with the price of 2 7970s, I could use that same argument for the 780s saying they decided to make things more competitive as well, to the benefit of the market, regardless of reasons why. Simply put, when you beat competition to the punch, you get to command a premium, it's economics 101.
Moving back to being on topic, the idea of a no TDP limit is pretty great, would allow for some real overclocking headroom to see what happens when things are pushed to the max. If we have had 780 classified's hit 1400, I can only imagine what these may or may not hit. 6GB vram will be nice for people with multiple 1440p displays or 4k gaming I guess. Though I wonder if they'll end up either a) phasing out the Titan and replacing it with this card at the 1k price point b) lowering the price of the Titan to maybe 850 USD and putting the new card at 1k or c) putting it at maybe 1100-1200. I really don't think they'd put it above the 1k mark, it feels as if there is an implied price boundary beyond 1k that would make people draw the line there.
