Highly Doubt the built to order Kingpin is available through the step up program.

The only thing that bugs me is the overclocking potential as the extra memory on the kingpin is a dead weight. The fact EVGA are doing this, they clearly know that Maxwell is a way off, potentially even next year.

I've three reference Ti's and as a 1440p gamer if anything I hope this drives the 3gb Kingpin price down smile.gif

Also regarding step up I have a feeling the Ti variants won't be available through it. Least definitely not the classy / Kingpin cards.

Quite possible the GK110 chips are in abundant supply and they need to haul butt to get them sold, hence the 6gb variants.

Just a theory...thinking.gif

Jason already "mostly" confirmed that just a heads up.

Another theory is the massive improvement that AMD made with its OpenCL driver and the work with software vendors to include it.

With these 6GB cards Nvidia kinda killed a lot of Titan Black sales and that makes absolutely zero sense unless they have a load of GK110 chips piling up or competition around the corner.

To be fair Titan Black has full compute making it still the card of choice for people who want to conjoin their gaming and work into one box wink.gif. We know full well both Titan and Titan Black are already aimed at a very small segment of users and the price reflects this. So it makes perfect sense for NV to eventually allow partners to open up the larger VRAM perks to mainstream cards. Let's face it there are probably a huge number of users who bought the Titan back in Feb last year who didn't really need to. Myself included smile.gif.

Sapphire are also releasing a 290x with a whopping 8GB VRAM.

The scenarios where you need DP but not ECC memory are really limited. Ppl who buys these cards are usually designers that need huge VRAM buffers.

GTX: Crippled DP, No ECC, No Certified Drivers.
Titan/Titan Black: DP, No ECC, No Certified Drivers.
Quadro/Tesla: DP, ECC, Certified Drivers.

The doubled VRAM and the raw horsepower of the Titan were its selling points. Nvidia took away the raw power with the GTX 780 and the GTX 780 Ti. Gamers will have no need for it with the raw power exclusive gone. The VRAM size exclusive will be gone soon and Nvidia left the Titan Black for a really small inside a small niche.

I know. AMD is at disadvantage here with OpenCL barely starting to show its head and several and nasty driver problems with its OpenCL implementation. The amount of software working on AMD cards is pathetic. I don't know how many 7970 6GB Sapphire sold but this is going to be even lower.

As seen here:
http://www.anandtech.com/show/7492/the-geforce-gtx-780-ti-review/14

The 780Ti beat the Titan in single compute and the Titan black only matches. Only DP makes sense but the people who need it are far in-between. Folders, game devs and scientist.
Titan Black doesn't have full compute (1/3) and there's really no reason to consider it now the the Ti will receive 6GB. Unless your absolutely need DP compute.

I have had enough Kepler cards. All these spin offs are getting a bit boring now...
I will wait for the tech that offers a generational leap over what is being offered now, not incremental improvements. I don't care whether its AMD or Nvidia that comes out with something more exciting.

Not a fan of NVidia constant repolishing a turd tactic, so I won't be buying any more upgrades until NVidia releases Maxwell, at a minimum. That is If at all. May also be time to build a red machine just to break up the monotony of everything NVidia can leech out of their line up, rather than release what they promised.
