What another laughing stock that was.
For the same price I could have three GTX 780Ti Classifieds that would perform better most of the time, or two Titans that would perform equally for $400 less using Australian prices for the Titans. (In other words, the difference is likely to be even larger when you actually compare it to the $3299 this is likely to cost here)
This really only has a use for ITX Users and people who really
need DP power in a few cards with money to blow, very niche indeed.

I paid $329 for a 6800GS 512MB, the position that card held in nVidia's lineup then costs around $500 or so assuming GTX 780Ti = 6800Ultra. (Therefore, 6800GT = GTX 780 and 6800GS = GTX 770)
Cards have definitely gone up a lot in price in the past decade. I really want to get a GTX 780 but the R9 290 is barely any slower/equal in every benchmark I've seen for $100 less and even then, I'd still consider it a bit overpriced.

Going from the R9 290X reference cooler, that card would be ridiculously hot. They'd need to go for a triple fan cooler. (Something they should have done anyway, given that blower style coolers are far less efficient than they are)

That they let
you play games on it does not make it a gaming card.
No, because that price is actually warranted given the amount of support they give to Quadro and Tesla buyers...I doubt they give that level of support to Titan owners. The price is sheer profit. If it wasn't a gaming card, it wouldn't be a GeForce plain and simple.
