but heres the magic.. how do we get the masses to buy a 700$ gpu ..lets make it faster out the box and downplay the titan in the slides..
everyones loses their mind.. Nvidia laugh to the bank..
who really got played? the Titan buyers or the Ti buyers? i'd say the Ti owners got played harder than the Titan owners imho!
That doesn't make sense for few reasons:
1. Ti buyers are not TITAN buyers period. Those people know TITAN is only e-peen and has no performance to money value. They wait for Ti to get best performance for best price. They woul buy original TITAN XP otherwise. That is logical.
2. Ti is still top card in terms what you get for how much. I mean 700 bucks for top performance vs 1200 bucks for 7-10% better than that performance? Lol, none Ti owner would pay for it because again- they are not TITAN target.
3. For 1400 bucks you can have 1080Ti SLI, beating crap out of TITAN Xp. That is 200 bucks more only for totally better performance. Again - Ti is best performance per value.
4. TITAN Xp is to milk TITAN XP owners who will sell their XP to buy Xp to again be at top - to have the longest. Because they were hit by Ti release the most (their pride and ego I mean) and now NVIDIA gave them option to again be on top, have the longest for another 1200 bucks. And you know what they will do? They will buy it! Because you don't buy TITAN for performance if you can have 8% less for 500 bucks less. You buy it for ego, that e-peen factor- I have the best.
People won't take proud in that, but belive me, many TITAN XP owners already ordered Xp probably without even selling TITAN XPs yet.
NVIDIA knows it and milks rich people that will PAY ANY PRICE just to know they have the best, even by 5%. LUXURY product.
I have nothing against TITAN Xp. Rich people may buy whatever they want. I wish I could consider 1200$ a small amount. Really.
Their money, their business. But NVIDIA is just playing on their ego, just on ego.
Anyone with cool, logic head (even rich) would buy TI, having 7 less fps in games and invest those extra 500 bucks in wallet in custom water loop, or good sound card and good mouse/keyboard on top of that. Or ivest in SSD etc.
TITAN is like Lamborgini, Aston Martin etc. Nobody buy it for ergonomic reasons, for performance, comfort, materials, gas waste, build quality etc. You'd buy Audi, Mercesdes, Volvo etc. for that.
You buy it for peen, cause you can and others can't. Simple as that.Edited by Benny89 - 4/10/17 at 2:27pm
