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.

You talk as if I own a Titan, I guess that 1080 in my Sig is too hard to see eah wink.gif I got no intention to own a Titan, what I am explaining is just the psychology for those that do buy them.

Titan do show up in Steam hardware survey, Titan X(Maxwell) have about 0.16% market share this July, sure that's 1 Titan X for every 12 980Ti(1.9%) but they do register.

Market share is in the 1080p market, but the profit margin/performance crown/brand image is built in the 4K market. That's why Nvidia sell both 1060 and Titan X Pascal.

For every Titan X sold instead of 980Ti, Nvidia got people to spend $350( more than the MSRP of the 970, likely the profit margin of 2-3 970s) more with very little extra effort expanded on their own, it is a very successful product in that sense. There was no other way for Nvidia to make them spend that extra $350 per card in March 2015, especially not with 970 like you suggest wink.gif

People that want to spend $4000+ on their PC builds exists and in larger quantity than most this forum realizes, if you don't give them $1200 GPUs to buy will spend those on Silicon Lottery 6950X($2000+ for a 4.4Ghz one I assume?), DDR4-3733+ for god knows how many GB Kits, Redoing their Loops with crazy thick Rads, Case Lab Products, $500 PSU/Motherboards, Braided PSU cables, Extra LED kits, Buy 1TB PCIE SSD at 60% markup on Ebay(SM961 which is not available in the US atm), etc. Titan give Nvidia a tap into these people's warchests and collect extra profit sthat would be otherwise unreachable.

It's a very powerful card but for 1,200$ you'd think it would max every game at 4K and them some but it still can't do that. We'll have to wait for Volta.

Thats what she said about the 980Ti but it dropped.. People didnt think the titan x was going to drop and amd didnt even have a answer for the gtx 1080...Just saying


Im saying this most of yall defending the titan x like its the best buy which its overpriced and many can agree to that i do believe a cheaper but close performer gpu will drop for less and the ones defending it will wine about the super titan x they bought...Same thing happened with titan/ 980Ti but yall act like it never happened funny how history repeats its self. Nv setting it up again and you already see how fast they dropping gpus it wouldnt shock me if the 1080 Ti drops soon

Being that Pascal was never geared for DX12-compliance, it is likely that NVIDIA will keep releasing chips because technically they are behind and need to clear the P100 salvages.

I'm on 3 x 1080p monitors with a 280x and have been very impressed with it as it can run everything at 60fps. I though turning down details to achieve 60fps would bother me but I found out that fluidity > graphics fidelity any day of the week.

I've been waiting on a card to upgrade but with only about 6H of gaming possible a week I find that is just not worth it and personally I would not spend the amount which could be a overseas trip or the like on a graphics card.

Genuine question, at what point does it become a priority to spend $1200USD+ on a graphics card for gaming?

It's a matter of disposable income and level of interest in gaming as a hobby. My employer offers a yearly interest free loan for PC components, so for me things are a bit different. Ultimately as far as entertainment dollar per hour, gaming is perhaps the most affordable hobby I have ever had.

im just wondering why NVIDIA seems so eager to push out all these cards where like you said AMD has no real answer for them. Seems like they are really rushing this generation or is it just me? smile.gif

Yup.

If they had pressure, this Titan could have been the 1080 Ti, and the Titan being an HBM2 packing GPU, with more cores. A true "monster"....

The point is they don't have pressure. AMD is so far behind, they'll never catch up.
