Quote from Google:

"90 degrees * 60 arc-minutes/degree * 1/0.3 * 90 * 60 * 1/0.3 = 324,000,000 pixels (324 megapixels). 120 * 120 * 60 * 60 / (0.3 * 0.3) = 576 megapixels. The full angle of human vision would require even more megapixels."

I wouldn't mind an 80" 8k biggrin.gif

But i agree i think 8k is quite pointless for traditional flat screens. But for VR/AR you could do some incredible stuff with 8k+, with that type of res you could have a virtual 100" 4k screen drool.gif

Come on the future thumb.gif

To my surprise when the 780 dropped months later for $650, it had the same cooler and build quality of the Titan. Plus it overclocked better and got custom versions! There was nothing about the Titan that made it halo except for the name and the 6GB of vram (if you needed it and I didn't). So as cool as this Titan X is and how fast it is, there is really nothing special about it but its speed and the vram (if you need it).

So I am not jumping on board this go around because unlike last time, I know the Titan isn't getting any special "features" except for the gobs of vram. I will wait until AMD releases their next card, see how Nvidia counters and then decide if I need(want) to buy something new.

Yep, I agree with everything you said there. Believe it or not, I'm a self admitted cheap bastard. wink.gif I drive to Micro Center (over 80 miles away) to get great deals on CPUs and mobos when it's upgrade time, and I do everything I can to save money and still have a killer rig. Heck I even called my rig "EconoGamer" because it's usually a bang-for-the-buck type of build. I stayed away from OG Titan, went with a 780 reference card when it came out, then upgraded again to an amazing 780 Ti (Palit Jetstream 780 Ti) custom card that has served me well for quite a while. I didn't see the point in 980 at all since my 780 Ti was actually a lot faster than a stock 980.

All this being said, I didn't hesitate to pull the trigger for several reasons. My friend is buying the 780 Ti for a good price, since it's such a great card, and I have a bunch of old hardware laying around that I'm getting rid of now (should have done this months ago). My out of pocket for the T-X is most likely going to be $300 or less, once the old parts are gone. I think many people do this, and you really have to factor that in to their buying decision. They're really not THAT crazy. wink.gif Take szeged for example, he has 3 cards (at least) that he's gonna sell, and probably some other stuff as well. That will help offset the cost of his 4 Titan X cards. smile.gif

More may be better for transistor count, but it's not always better for pixels.

Really...well then why don't you go and tell that to the Dell 5k? I find it difficult to look at 4k after going 5k....so I can only imagine the awesome sauce of 8k

This is so true.

I actually went from 4K Surround to 5K - love the awesomeness of a single monitor - no Surround issues whatsoever - plus the incredibly high resolution of 14.7MP! biggrin.gif

Here's my 5K review:

Btw, Bastar, post some pics of your monitor/rig!!

If i had to pick a single monitor it would be 5K running 200% Scaling if worked 100%.

100 000 x $3398 = $ 339 800 000


So why don't 1GB hard drives cost ~$340 million today? Because prices always go down as tech gets better. Consumers get better and better products while prices go down or stay the same.

"But it performs faster or holds more storage so it should cost more!" is a technological fallacy.

If today we paid the same prices for tech as when they first came out, the average PC would cost billions of dollars, but they don't because prices go down as tech gets better.


Let's repeat that again:

prices go down as tech gets better

prices go down as tech gets better

prices go down as tech gets better

 

While this assertion if valid for Ubiquitous commodities. Ubiquitous = "Found Everywhere" like gasoline, Microwave ovens, 1080P LCD , LED or Plasma TV's, mobile phone radios, general purpose PC's and Laptops even (read consumer level). 

 

This assertion is flatout wrong for RARE items that less than a half a percent of all computer owners attain. 

 

So prices generally do not go down for Rare technology.

My plan is to go to a 21:9 3440x1440 34" setup, with dual Titan X reference cards on air. To get there, I'm buying one Titan X now. Next will be a new power supply, then the second Titan X, and finally the monitor later this summer when it's finally released.

This plan allows me a upgrade path that won't hit my wallet too hard during any given month, and will also keep the wife at bay. thumb.gif

Midrange consumer GPUs are rare technology? headscratch.gif

Remember, prices have doubled from midrange up. And a lot more than half a percent of consumers buy GPUs that fall into the "midrange and up" categories.
