    I think he will use them for benchmarks, because for games is the gold of overkills.

    Sure. Because half is not all, not even when I convert to metric.

    That's nice. Maybe we can get quad DP models for triple 4K Surround Mode.

    Nearly 1000$ and no backplate included. This is beggarly. And what a cheap packaging.
    Obviously there's not a single woman working in the company ...

    Watch Linustech on youtube

    If i want to pay 1000 euro (cause that much it gonna cost in EU) for a SUPER magnesium cased AWESOME design than ill buy jewelry and not a GPU with just a minor performance boost over last gen.
    I would say NVIDIA give us instead a naked ugly PCB with astronomical performance and not
    a nice looking box with astronomical price (they even advertising it like it would be a frakin superstar assuming that all the people brainwashed enough trough the media to buy it)

    They even invented SLI so customers will not be limited to buy just 1 card per PC so keep the price lower and more sales will occure.
    The only reason i dont want to switch to AMD is cause they drivers allways full of BUG.

    i wonder why when it has so many more shaders than the 680 that it is only rumored to be 30% faster?

    also that price is just stupid.

    If you can't afford to buy it.. Juzt don't buy it. It's as simple as that..
    How can you bash the others, who will buy this?
    It's a weird world after all.. My Goodness!

    remember when AMD came out and said that the GTX 280 would be Nvidia's last monolithic gpu due to market shifts?

    We didn't believe them of course, but its funny to see nvidia sticking like a dinosaur to the old way of thinking many years later.

    Don't get me wrong I love these kind of cards, they simply don't sell well at all. I really can't see what nvidia was thinking here. The 600 series made so much more sense.

    Besides: what puzzles me is the max temp of 95°C. On the other hand nvidia advertises Titan has to be runned cool as possible for maximum performance. Otherwise the card is not running in Turbo mode and is clocking down. This is weird.

    Where has there been any benchmarks of how hot this GPU runs? Im pretty sure the max temp of 95c your talking about its the max safe temperature to run it at.

    Just quoting the figures. Benchmarks are not allowed until 21th. But this is still controversary in my view. My 680s never reached that max temp. But maybe you're right. Have to wait for benchies.

    .... and ive not yet won the lotto.
    I do find it aggravating that in the same speal Nv say
    Finally there is a single gpu that can play any game at any res then a few lines later say combine 3x in sli to play at high res' s smooth ass wtf does one do then, contradiction mm
    Clarifies amds press release yesterday for me tho, more a hey rem us guys thing.

    How do both companies allways manage a slight press spoiler each release, they both need to tune some moles in.

    Temps and noise levels are nearly equal. My 680 is running 32°C idle and about 76°C at load.

    If you use EVGA precision you can manage the clocks not to clock down at all.

    The 1.1ghz overclock is impressive.

    I think they are releasing it just so they can claim: "The Fastest GPU in the World" and to beat AMD 7970 which was making their GTX 680 look bad.

    I'm sure that the slow down in PC sector helped aswell to make that decision. Orders for Tesla werent as expected and they had a lot of inventory to re-allocate due to various other reasons.

    How so, because I run Precision X.

    The downlocking is on BIOS side im pretty sure. So unless you edit BIOS, Precision can't do anything.
