    euuuuuh the price to be honest i so stupid -_-' +24% on the hd 7970 ghz for +600$ i can buy any hd 7970 ghz for 340euro in Europe so why the hell this suppose to be 1000 euro for only 24% wth is going on , are the nvidia fanboy rich to that point to buy anything with any price ?
    ore perhaps it's out only to say we have the biggest flagship 7.B T .....
    i love nvidia but this .. sorry they just make no sense to the normal buyer to continue buying there products

    But most of us here do not run that res yet four. If you did then great buy a titan but most here I would venture are still 1080 or 1200.

    Never said there was one. I just mentioned the performance increase from 7970 and if you game 1080/1200 then stick to the 7970/680

    I'm impressed the most on how well the sli/crossfire scaling was for both amd and nvidia in 3dmark11, wish all the games were like that, and not just a bench.

    The 680 saw slightly more than double fps with 2cards vs 1

    so the price is more/less almost 2x of 680, but the performance is only 1.3x of it ??
    wow... what a total rip off move nvidia... lol...

    Yeah pretty surprising, for a such a large complex chip with that level of performance I thought it would peak much higher.

    Like the power consumption very VERY much, and the card is impressive.

    Yeah here's Titan - a lot of frustration especially on looks as much as it is put on the appearance is taken in functionality. at this price I would expect moudeng options and choice of thermal results, but not card should look sexy. I still do not take into account that those who will add Liquide block provided with a slot in SLI and would want at least another layout slot they have acquired to use for upgrading (PCE-E SSD opt., Audio .....) must physically remove output instead that this could be resolved or which consist of smaller output than it did AMD. I think that people are not so stupid that I'd be able to connect multi monitors, it's not as expensive as you can afford AMD. Cards Why do manufacturers do not realize this is very sad! (3 slot card, 4slot card, card 5slot giwe me nightmares .... Sat stupid). If you raise the price so drastically since then to get some of it, not deaf ears designers. Preformens Titan GPU is of course a disappointment, again locking pounega potential of the processor as it was in the GTX 480, all complite neglect adaptation drivers for SLI option because it often turns out that one card works better than 2 or 3. It is clear to see that this product last year for which we have long expected a Invidia has worked rather to made profit with (K104). Results of the first tests are far below expectations, according to FPS in games tested here.because according to the tests that are shown here, we can ask if they have been all the necessary software loaded because often works SLI worse than single card.

    This isn't about saving money or budget. This is about having the best card no matter the price. For me its crazy. For Bill Gates its already over night to his house.

    each there own themailman... the Titan is a way for NV to fill there bank account.

    Personally just wouldnt consider buying a Titan but I have been thinking about getting a 690 and now I want one more, maybe in a few weeks the price will drop?

    Impressive engineering, very innovative, and awesome card...

    But the $2k I had planned for a pair of these in SLI will be going towards my 3-Way GTX670FTW SLI and more cooling and storage... The performance increase of these is simply not worth the cost of admission...

    excellent review !


    In terms of pure performance battle i notice that the GTX 590 defended himself with fists and kicks and is glued to the GTX titan back. What a wonderful die hard graphics card !!

    This shows that the GTX 590 is a succesful card, i think i will start to look for a second-hand GTX 590 !!

    Thoughts; Nice Halo but perhaps not as impressive as the GTX690, given the price.

    Power consumption is amazing! If there was a problem in the first GK-100 it wasn’t power or they found it and fix it twice over!

    New drivers aren’t going to make any real improvement, but for the extra money you hand them I hope Nvidia will have a team that’s only supporting Titian and GTX690 for the next 4 years.

    Forget about any substantial retail price reductions (like $800) until it’s irrelevant say mid-2014.

    Lastly, consider Nvidia has fairly extensive number of GK-110 die’s given Tesla production. Is this K20X or some form of gelding from that 14 SMX bin, that might be the reason Nvidia hasn't more room on price? Is yield for full-fledged Tesla that good, or was cutting-off anymore SMX modules (like the K20 13 SMX or down to 12) exceptionally detrimental on performance, or might there be a further reduce spec chip in the wings for $700. I ask would folks pay for something in the middle and fork out say $700. Something tells me this is the best Nvidia could manipulate, while holding decent perf/price (and face), and from that all they could release to a gaming GPU. They probably have a fair amount of GK-110 that really make no sense to build into something, so Titian pricing is intended to supplement their dudes.
