I would think that nvidia wouldn't want to cannibalize those sales.
Taking into account a reasonable level of image quality and resolution dependent, the GTX 680 lags by about 35-70% behind the Titan
(mouse over the graph bars for baseline comparison)- if you concentrate on compute heavy gaming or apps, the difference becomes somewhat greater. Unlikely that a GTX 780 would equal a Titan unless it were fundamentally redesigned.
The second argument is somewhat more pragmatic. Titan is here, GK114 is not. If you're waiting for the next best thing then you would be forever waiting. With the staggered release cycles that AMD and Nvidia seem to a reached, you're never going to be more than a few months removed from a new series.
