For example if you reach 2-2.1 GHz (which is very possible for a founder edtion's card), you get at least 30% on top of its initial performance. That totals to around 70% above GTX 1080.
You can say that you can overclock GTX 1080 too. But due to the high starting clocks and aggressive adaptive overclocking you don't actually net more than 10% additional performance. If all of the above are true, you can have +50-60% of greater performance as compared to GTX 1080 merely by overclocking your Titan X. This in turn would make Titan X (overclocked) the first 4K card (minimum FPS to most games maxed @ 4K > 50FPS)
Can't say I'm not excited, what I can say is that I'll probably not be able to justify that cost to me (or my wife).
Your assuming it will overclock like a 1080. Pretty big assumption. Why in the world would Nvidia neuter the Titan's performance with clock speed out of the box anyways? Doesn't even make sense for them to do that to their flagship.
Anyway these cards are priced very far apart. 700 dollars is a lot for me to spend on a GPU 1200 is unthinkable. It will be cool to see but speaking as a 1080 owner I was never going to buy it even if it launched first.
