Straight off Nvidia's Website:

"GeForce GTX TITAN Z is a gaming monster, built to power the most extreme GAMING rigs on the planet. With a massive 5760 cores and 12 GB of 7 Gbps GDDR5 memory, TITAN Z gives you truly amazing performance—easily making it the fastest graphics card we’ve ever made."

The only gaming reference there is made by demoing the UE4 engine on the thing. Other than that it's all GPGPU, very little gaming.

To quote Jen-Hsun:
I know everyone likes to quote one Nvidia blog that next to no one but us will actually read, but let's be honest, those are not sales pitches for a gaming card I linked above, not even close to it.

Was the 780 priced fine-ER when it was dropped to $500?

By the way, those R9's, can you imagine what they're price would have been if the 780 was originally $500?

Everyone's entitled to they're opinion, so if you don't mind the pricing, well that's yours, BUT, I don't see many that think "it's fine"

Will the 880 be "fine" at 700 or very likely more?

And same can be said for AMD with the terrible priced 7970 at launch. Well not the same thing, but same idea.

For all you people complaining about a $3k GPU, this might help you understand why it's $3k...

It's for Supercomputers and rendering-farms that firms own and have the money to buy into. This is not for gamers, unless you are a gamer with lots of money and really need this card for brag rights.

Otherwise, if you are not a renderr-farm, Supercomputer or server owner, you have no need for this card.

Now, if you want this card and don't want to pay out the arse for it, establish an LLC(Limited Liability Corporation), buy the card and put it on your tax return as a business expense. You should than receive 68% of your initial back. You will have then payed only $960 for the GPU.

What if the GTX880 was 800 or more, how then, would you feel?

Where do you sir, draw the line?

The 780 Ti is $700 which is quite an ask I agree but then if I thought that was too much money I wouldn't buy it. I'd buy a 760, 770 or an AMD product. Just because these high-priced, super cards exist doesn't mean I have to have one. If the statement is that even those mid-high cards are overpriced then disregard.

If it was for supercomputers it wouldn't have Geforce branding and normal ram.
