    Quad-GPU scaling in general is a freaking disaster ;)

    I said what I said as single GPU cards in mind ofc, and iirc the 690 was also 1K$ when it came out, so it was not cheaper than two 680s at that time. Don't forget that this is a 384bit Kepler, so it might hold well at ultra-high resolutions (we don't know for sure if it's slower), but being a single chip design is always a plus imho, so let's not jump into conclusions without seeing how Wizzard tests "her" capabilities.

    I have to admit, I'm also not really a dual-card/SLI/Xfire fan, but I still find it fascinating and promising that - with such power consumption - there is a possibility of a dual GK110 card in the near future (to hold the candle until next generation arrives).
    Events like these will probably also force AMD to move soon, which can lead to a - much needed - price war perhaps :toast:

    AMD is already moving, and I can see the price war already happening. This is just a bragging rights card, the masses will never be able to afford the card. The trickle down models will not be much better than what AMD is already offering.

    Not sure, it looks pretty decent and solid on paper as a single GPU card. Knowing previous Kelpers, I have a feeling it will turn out to be quite efficient compared to the competition. I'm excited tbh:)

    Looked on newegg a couple of hours ago - 690s go for $1k+ there while factory OCed 7970s go for as little as $420
    Thus
    Makes it look that from the price point of view, x2 7970 would still be much better deal.
    Of course, that is only from this one point of view. I could name many situations where the Titan would be the sanest choice. But w/e.

    P.S. please note that for various reasons, I simply cannot use AMD cards, even if I wanted. As an example.

    This card looks pretty nice from an aesthetics perspective. But the price/performance ratio is all wrong.

    Why spend that much for the Titan when you can wait a few months for the GTX 780 which will likely match the performance at a saner price?

    That said - what IS this Titan model number -wise? What would it be its family number? 6xx? 7xx? How about the performance segment number?
    Or maybe it's like one "freak" card that is "disowned by the family", thus being in its own "group" that includes only itself and nothing else?
    i.e. the model name "Titan" makes its position rather ambiguous.

    The GTX 666! Or 699.
    It's a limited edition card that will sell because it's limited edition.

    AMD would do the same if they were smart, release a monster single GPU card and have it limited to 1000 or so units. They would make money off the people who need the absolute best, no matter the cost.
    Kinda like the old guy in Jurassic Park. "Spare no expense"

    If you managed to get to the last page and did not faint because of the excitement then you'll do when the price is presented.

    Not sure why its even needed. A 690 rapes all those games already.

    Well the 690 needs some competition, don't you think?

    Dark, It may drive other GPU prices down which is a good thing.

    Which ones? They've priced it higher than the current retail for a 690. It doesn't make a difference to the rest of the gpu prices. I was going to get one but for >£800 that just doesn't make sense to me.
