For the current going price it is indeed underwhelming, but if it were priced at $700 or so (which would require all other NVIDIA GPUs to go down in price) it'd be sheer insanity. It really is a work of art though, and that is clearly visible in the cards design. NVIDIA has definitely put time into development of this card

I Just hope AMD comes out with something to counter the Titan soon to tame Nvidia's ridiculously greedy $1k price tag for this performance.

It's unlikely more than 3 - 4 GB will be used in the near future, but my guess is that they included 6 GB to differentiate it (and future proof, given the premium price you're paying) from the future GTX 780, which I presume will have 3 GB of VRAM. They could have opted for 4 GB, but that would mean using the same uneven memory controller / memory size arrangement as the GTX 660 ti, which is not optimal.

Other leaked images from the bigger sites show it actually performing closer to the 690 on lower resolutions, only 6% slower at 1200p... 1 1/2 more hours until NDA lift.

was just gonna post this

37fps on a 7970, 43fps on a titan? 7970 is still a beast!

LOL! How many own triple screens [email protected] and 4k? Yeah, not many and respect to the ones that do BUT I wanna see the bad boy @1150-1200Mhz at 19x10 or 25x16 since I can downsample from that res.

Even a titan is NOT enough sometimes at 25x16 for 60FPS let alone 4k or 3x 25x16 screens. As many said, 2 Titans do make it right in all reasons but then you are already at 2k worth of GPU's which of course if fine by some and if I had the money it would be fine by me also.

Shows a much cheaper 660ti SLI setup for around $550 trading blows with the $1000 titan and Linus making weak but valid excuses for the price premium.

It really is ironic that the Crysis franchise used to be a Nvidia "The way it's meant to be played" (the first games still are technically, I think, but it's possible they might be re-sponsored in the future, from what I remember Half-Life 2 used to be an ATI game and was later a TWIMTBP game), but AMD has managed to get their cards, from what I remember since the HD 6000 series to perform better than Nvidia's in Crysis and Crysis Warhead and the curious thing is that Nvidia didn't fine tune the drivers for those games to perform any better so they would make a better showing in benchmarks (which were still being used, are still are to some degree), but then again, maybe they had already extracted all the performance they could.
