360 and PS3 were the last of a failed concept. We've all benefited from consoles being little high strung gaming laptops, and we will once again on the refresh, if not only for the DP & HDMI standard going up on cards & monitors everywhere. Currently, NV & AMD both have to make use of tricks to keep up with these high res high refresh rate monitors & that kinda nonsense will go by the wayside thanks to the new consoles. .
I don't remember it because the Titan wasn't sold as a solution or a competitor to the new consoles. For gaming it was sold as an alternative to SLI a high frame rate large memory single card solution, as far as the "science" aspect I'm sure they new that it would appeal somewhat to that market.
The Titan launched in February, the new consoles launched end of November of that year. The Titan was not market against consoles half its price nearly a year away. This particularly doesn't make sense because if it was marketed against the new consoles it would have launched around the same time as the consoles or during June around the time of E3. Oddly enough the 290 series and the 780 series did launch around the time of the consoles and offered impressive performance. Those may be the cards you are thinking of, but it wasn't the Titan.
Everything you have mentioned here makes me think you are referring to the 780ti.
