When you only have 2 competitors in a field things like this are hard to break. Nvidia is the opposite as it certainly is perceived as an expensive brand because "the price is worth it" to some.

After my friend went from his AMD setup powered by a r9 280 to a 970 he doesn't care how much it costs for an Nvidia card. He's never going back to AMD again due to software. Makes me feel bad because I turned him to the dark side and he was a die hard AMD guy before his days with his current setup. Only if there were more brands in this field other than just 2. It's just as bad as our political landscape.

These flagship single GPUs have always been hot and loud - it's right in the same ballpark as the previous Titan, 780Ti, etc. 980 isn't a full card, so it runs colder and quieter.

We're getting into an area where I actually agree somewhat. I'm not one of those people who think high-end GPUs are going to be anything but power-sucking monsters; the laws of physics pretty much demand it and my PC is more than prepared to handle the extra heat and power demands. But I'm not talking about the GPU demanding too much, I'm talking about the reference cooler not being good enough to properly cool the thing. It's way louder and less effective at cooling than aftermarket open-air designs, hence my issue with no custom designs on the Titan or any card for that matter.

I never buy reference because they're decisively inferior, they can't hold a candle to Lightning, Windforce, Vapor-X, etc. designs no matter how good they are. They're still single-fan blower-style coolers. For both the 780/Ti and the Titan X, reviewers have measured both as being relatively loud and hot (83C limit reached under full load with throttling). They've also reported audible coil whine and the power delivery systems of PCBs are nothing special. Nvidia are still cheaping out on components at this price-point and then refusing to allow AIBs to make custom designs solving the limitations. Considering the price-point, those are all pretty massive cons. Flagship cards of the past at least had the decency to be much cheaper and allow custom designs. Meanwhile, Nvidia are pretending that Titan X is something special while absolutely none of their design decisions reflect that mentality.

I was hopping this card did not use same memory interface as the older Titan even though it has 12GB. Compare to Titan Black it has 50% more memory that is probably ~ 25% faster. Would have been better if this card had 8GB 512-Bit.

As I already stated, double precision isn't a requirement for a card to be a compute card and is mostly used in a very specific subset of applications.

you're missing the point.

the og titan was advertised as a workstation grade card
Quote:
For the first time, GTX TITAN provides access to developers to over a teraflop of double-precision performance in a commercially-available GPU, transforming their PCs into personal supercomputers. That’s big news: for scientists, accessibility to computing resources is one of the biggest hurdles in advancing research. Many have to wait weeks to months for access to a supercomputer or a campus-wide cluster - See more at: http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2013/03/13/geforce-gtx-titan-cuda/#sthash.lRLWP9Os.dpuf

http://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2013/03/13/geforce-gtx-titan-cuda/

this titan x is a gaming card period.

the titan name requires you to pay out the nose for it.

marketing has worked.

Man, I want one, but gotta wait for tax refund season. At least the 390X will be out by then. Though I'm not buying a water cooler.

Woah, when did the performance gap between the 290X and 980 get that small? Also, a 7970 ghz now slightly trails behind a 780, crazy! Anyways, Titan X looks pretty good imo.

They could have still had 12 GB with 512-bit, but they just didn't have the die space is my guess for two additional memory controllers. Same reason they scrapped FP64. Not having a process shrink to work with really limited GM200 from what it could have been.

Maybe the 2nd generation of maxwell improved the comoute performance.(like they did with OpenCL and some Sim),Scaler?TMUs?Tesetellation Units?Rops?

The Titan X has better FP32 and CUDA performance but they nerfed the FP64 back to 1/32 vs. 1/3 so the FP64 performance is only a tad better than the GTX 980 but still far away from the TFLOP that the original Titan had.
