Titan z was a mega failure because it was a poorly marketed card and could not justify its asking price. It sold poorly and had to have a price slash to get the ball rolling.
Titan Z was a weird card. Titan Z under it's original purpose isn't a bad deal. It's a compute heavy card that offers more double precision than any card on the market that was fairly priced for pro cards
However, no one seriously took the titan moniker as a semi professional card seriously as it didn't come with the drivers that pro cards received. As a result, it was an over price card when used for gaming purposes put gamers could cough up 1k for a card. At 3k, there was no takers and it was a failure. Titan Z are generally rarely seen or owned scanning peoples signatures.
Any Titan xz at 3k is going to fail because it doesn't even have the professional cards dp going for it. At this point in time, max Nvidia can charge is 2k but a better price would be 1500 which is still pricey.
If AMD only releases this as a 12tf card. I wouldn't even bother countering with a double card again. If they want to steal AMD's thunder just launch a highly clocked gtx titan x with water cooling and 12gigs of 2ghz memory ddr5.
Cards like the water force or seahawk gtx 980 ti are in the same ballpark as a 295x2. Add in another 100mhz, use a full maxwell chip and 2ghz memory and should have a card within the same performance as a fury gemini. If NV charged 1200 dollars for such a card, it would likely do pretty well.Edited by tajoh111 - 2/2/16 at 6:18pm
