The companies that buy Titans for whatever their workload entails, have long since recouped the extra cost for Titans. That's the advantage......the highest level of performance. These are work horses designed to make money, not just be used to consume content.
Let's put it this way, if you have a machine that is just 5% faster, runs 10 hours a day for 5 days a week, you will have gained 10 hours of extra productivity a month. 120 hours in a year. And that's just 5% increased performance.
Just like with the 6900k from Intel......the workstations these chips are going in are seeing tons of gains.....and this performance was available long before AMD could provide it. So when you look at the price difference of Ryzen vs Intel, that $500 price difference, while meaningful, is chump change in the grand scheme of things, and will obviously also change now that there's competition.
Even high end gaming cards have their place in professional sectors, from using it to drive displays, render farms, AI, etc.
