Favorite graph released so far. Most just want to compare the percentage of the 680/7970 to the Titan; this does exactly that.

If thats the game you want to play then I think integrated graphics can handle that

Lol wow. All things considered I am ready for titan to speed along some price drops for the 670 and 680. The numbers I have seen are impressive for a single gpu but not enough to justify double the cost of a 680. I think the sli 670 and 680 are going to be the sweet spot for a little bit if we see even slight price drops.

Feel the same.

It is marketed as a Single GPU replacement for the 690 but only seeing 40-50% gains compared to a 680. That really doesn't justify the $899-$1000 price tag. Hopefully this thing comes in around $700 but still have a feeling $899 will be that price tag if price/performance is justifying the price point. It is a 80%-85% of the 690 performance so $899 is where it should be priced if that is the case.

Dates been pushed back to the 19th.

If this thing is value anywhere over $1000, then I don't think it's a good buy. It only outperforms the 680/7970 buy 30%, but will cost more than double of one (most likely).

Yes.

Look in OP

NDA Lifted - 18th
Paper - 19th
Sales - 21st

As of now..

ETA:

I agree with you blue, it really isn't a good price per performance purchase. Then again it really is tailored for extreme resolutions. If I was gaming on a single 1080 then buy 2 7970GHz and clock them to hell.

I don't do surround but might buy 3 - 1080s when we move into our house this month. Do my regular setup of 2 1440s and then another rig just for nVidia Surround, just do not have the space in our current house.

Then again this card really isn't about getting any bang for your buck, it is about going extreme and just pure enthusiast type purchase. I'm just getting it because why not, want to test it out and can always resale for 80-90% of the purchase price.

The e-peen tests had measurable results. The OT can not be measured and therefore would not use tests. Everyone would just say how amazing their setup is.

Anatech Review Part 1:
quote:

At the time of the GK110 launch at GTC, we didn’t know if and when GK110 would ever make it down to consumer hands. From a practical perspective GTX 680 was still clearly in the lead over AMD’s Radeon HD 7970. Meanwhile the Titan supercomputer was a major contract for NVIDIA, and something they needed to prioritize. 18,688 551mm2 GPUs for a single customer is a very large order, and at the same time orders for Tesla K20 cards were continuing to pour in each and every day after GTC. In the end, yes, GK110 would come to the consumer market. But not until months later, after NVIDIA had the chance to start filling Tesla orders. And today is that day.

Much like the launch of the GTX 690 before it, NVIDIA intends to stretch this launch out a bit to maximize the amount of press they get. Today we can tell you all about Titan – its specs, its construction, and its features – but not about its measured performance. For that you will have to come back on Thursday, when we can give you our benchmarks and performance analysis.

Yeah, disappointing at times IMO.

I'm still buying since I can't max out cyrsis 3 on 1440. I have all the power but VRAM stays above 2gb with even 2xAA.

I've heard AA isn't needed when running on 1440p or higher?

Just preordered my Titan from NCIX. They won't ship until next Monday though.

Will wait for another Titan from an American vendor next.

NCIX has been good to me lately. Amazon is driving me crazy with their free shipping system. They take forever to ship something and if you try to cancel it they say it is being prepared to ship and they can't.

It isn't "needed" but you can notice a bump from 2x.

4xaa and above on 1440 I can't see.
