I have no 970s, returned those things after the VRAM fiasco and am sitting on a single 290X with a good $800 ready at this very moment for a beastly new singlr GPU.
I'm not attached to my hardware Murlocke, I upgrade it yearly and gladly eat the loss for the sake of my hobby. I'm simply calling it as it is, the Titan X as a whole is a poor product, with a good chip powering it.
This card is a much better deal than the original Titan, which sold really well. It's a great card overall. You can't expect the best price:performance ratio when we have options like SLI/CF.
This card is almost equal to stock 2x 780Ti (at 100% scaling which is rare) when overclocked. It does so at nearly 2x less overall wattage and heat output. Sure it's no where as efficient as a 980, but that's to be expected. If you aren't impressed by that, then nothing can impress you in the PC world anymore. It's not like we are going to have another 8800GTX breakthrough jump again.
$1000 is a fair price for such a powerful single GPU. It's not for everyone, but to call it garbage is absurd. Most could care less about custom PCBs and backplates.

A product performing 50% better than another older product costing the same sure is better in price/performance.
True, but I don't think NVIDIA will pull another 780Ti > Titan situation in the near future. I think we'll see a 980Ti, but it will likely be 6GB and slower than Titan X and much colder/quieter/efficient.
Maybe i'm wrong, but I'm tired of my 780Ti. It just can't keep up in 3440x1440 anymore and I don't play the waiting game when it comes to PCs. There's always better in the near future.Edited by Murlocke - 3/17/15 at 1:27pm
