And for what you get is actually quite a steal in terms of business hardware investment. You get the unit, and hardware/software support (I believe the base is a year, and after that it is subscription based), and unlimited software licenses for the suite of software that was developed for the unit.
Also, the unit doesn't use Titan Z's. It uses what is essentially a Quadro K6000....times eight of them. So right off the bat, it is $40K in pure GPUs stuck inside the thing, not to mention the hardware support. Downtime is money lost in business.
If you want to fanboy war this thread like other unfortunate users in here, at least get facts correct. Not everything is a consumer product. The Iray VCA is a corporate/institution-bound product.
