Do single GPU cards offer lower latency? What's the advantage?

Titans are amazing gaming cards. They overclock well and can be used as a workstation card. They are just perfect thumb.gif

Other than coin mining, show me where you find these other cards "slaying" the Titan.
APU what?

Don't the 780Ti and 290X both beat it at gaming performance? I wouldn't say "slay" but at a lot less money.

Many reviews run The Titan at stock settings. Even then it's right there with the new cards.
Keep in mind Titan was released last February and at the time nothing could touch it. It doubles as a Workstation card, which means nothing to those looking for pure gaming performance. Anyone in the market for a Titan right now, willing to pay 1000 bucks will probably be doing so because of its workstation capabilities. Titans can also be found used at decent prices if a gamer wants a 6gb card.

Mainly due to it's workstation capabilities

I meant as opposed to a single dual gpu card like the 780ti.

I thought the only dual GPU card was the 7990?
