    Now I know they unlocked some ROPS or CuDAS or what every those things are, so this chart is not quite accurate:

    But for $3000, the scaling has to be better than that!

    It appears they did a decent job cloaking that fact if it is a 3-Slot... From that picture it's hard to tell. If it is 3-Slot it provides that much extra thermal displacement area, lessen the need to pack the fins so tight creating backpressure. While the fan doesn't look like their normal radial (blower) fan, but a more a traditional blade fan. That's surprising as blade fans don't make the flow and pressure one would think is still needed. And the radial fan Nvidia has with Titan has demonstrated to be a very good proprietary design.

    I'm unfortunate enough to have one(GTX 590) and am in the process of aquiring Epower boards to fix it. I was listing the most extreme example because GTX 680s GTX 780s GTX TITANs(not BE) have all been know to blow their VRMs once you push 1.45+V through them and degrade rapidly at voltages over 1.3V. Compare that to a R9 290X which can survive short periods of 1.6V on water cooling.

    I am so tired of seeing dual GPU cards. This trick only works on people that do not understand how computers work. The pci 3.0 bandwidth is damn near saturated with a single gpu 680. I'm no engineer, but I'm pretty sure that a tractor trailer can't fit through the eye of a sewing needle...

    Whatever
    I believe you.
    Because killing a board in seconds is soooooo much worse than killing a board in minutes.

    The other side to that particular coin is that, pushing voltage becomes a case of diminishing returns. Would there be much to be gained by allowing 1.6V through a GK 110 ? I can understand the interest for sub-zero (suicide) runs, but for 24/7 operation ?

    Abnormal price because there is no excuse for it either 4x Titan Black Edition = $ 4000. Therefore no one will be stupid to throw away $ 2000 as 2x TITAN-Z Will cost you $ 6,000.
    Where do you find this logic layout price. There is nothing you would not already have 2xK110, 2x6GB RAM, PLX chip, 2x power units. Busiest frequency does not appear and is unlocked and possible further clockeng we do not know! 5K (5120 x 2700 pixels) !!!And do not fucking way because there are no monitors I have not seen offered anywhere, not to mention outdated outputs! This price is for a rich man and they do not know what they are buying. Yes, I had at least two but you can dream about them at this price rather wait for the Maxwell and get in the a single processor which offers two here, and will also be supported with desired outputs but this is more dependent on Apple's rights i observed. AMD will issued 2 x R-9 290X for $ 1000 max $ 1,100 and INVIDIA will not be sold 10 pieces !:toast:

    So Nvidia releases this card for the people who want bragging rights. (Or to prove they are idiots, justify anyway you want)
    Later (Not much later hopefully) I bet Nvidia releases "the true gamer dual card" The GTX 790.
    My guess is the Titan-Z will have a really low production rate and only an extreme (Retarded) few will buy it.

    Nvidia (speaking to them as if they can hear me).... with releases like the Titan-Z, AMD is looking better and better everyday.... and this is coming from someone who is not afraid to drop thousands on Tri and Quad GPU setups.
    Dropping 6+k on a Dual chip card Quad SLI setup that will not scale as well as a single chip quad SLI setup is just plan price gouging and dumb.

    amd homeless, can you answer on 1 qestion, how guys, that have a lot of money, cannot afford somth like that? Do you really think they are not smarter than you? Anyway, this people, who will buy that demonic gpu - supporting Nvidia very well, and new upcoming technologies too, so amd will look on results and create future technologies in order to not lose market sharing place. Its a normal competition.

    Kind of depends upon workload.
    For gaming, it's obviously a play for the halo effect. A counter to the dual Hawaii card, and makes no sense - hence the pricing. There's a good chance that Nvidia will have to bin low vCore GK 110's for the Titan-Z, so they will be taking from the same bin as Tesla K40/Quadro K6000 ( runtime precision excepted).
    For CG rendering and the like, it might depend more on how much power you can jam into a form factor. People are obviously shoehorning as many Titans into a box as possible, so why fill sixteen slots with 8 GPUs, when you can fill fifteen with 10 GPUs ? If rendering time is money, the added initial expense might not enter into the equation

    I said short periods of time because I only found one guy who did it and he didn't kill the card but I suspect that after some hours the core(not the VRM) will burn out. Also the frequency at 1.6v was 1300mhz on water cooling so for benching its worth it. Also 1.45v is a pretty safe (for the core) voltage for benchin and shouldn't BBQ a well designed VRM.

    So... two years ago Nvidia's high end dual GPU set you back $1000 bucks with the GTX 690. Now, their high-end dual GPU costs $3000. WTF happened in two years? I sincerely hope this turns around and bites them in the ass somehow.

    This card is for enterprise use and is not a bad price for that market.

    Indeed, based on their initial Titan experiment who can argue.

    You mean that was the first time that people tried to use a gaming GPU in order to not pay the price of a workstation card.

    With this revelation I dont see why you aren't working at Nvidia yet.

    Indeed, I'm surprised too.

    But I try to educate through the tears and tantrums.

    2 Titan blacks its just SUCH a premium!! This price because of bad gpu's from amd, that cannot compete with Titan.
