When Ti drops people will complain and the Ti buyers would laugh at the Titan buyers, but most of the Titan buyers will laugh it off like they did before because they didn't have to wait and don't miss that $$ anyway.
Don't be naive. Nvidia sells so few of these Titans that they barely make any money out of them. Have you seen any Titan show up at the Steam hardware survey? This is just a marketing move. They wouldn't even need to sell even one to serve its purpose.
It's just maths. If you can sell a butt load of GTX 970 and get 5% of market share a card sold for three times its price but not even showing up in the stats must be something else to even bother.
Pretty much the same with 4K gaming. This forum is so much into 4K results and stuff that it doesn't seem to notice that it accounts for less than 2% (less than the pathetic 1.6% 1440p has) of players. With 0.02% growing rate. I mean... c'mon...
1080p grows at more than twice both of them combined.
Money is in the midrange at 1080p and pro market. Ppl buying high end cards amount for far less.
So keep dancing, you know who is playing.
