I want one for 300$.
Now now, you have to be reasonable. It should be no more than $550.
My point is that basically almost only people who tweak their card are going to drop 1k $ on a GPU.
I kinda imagine the % of people buying the Titan and leaving it a stock is tiny because let's face it, you gotta be really into it to buy one or two, like me.
That said, it wouldn't have cost that much to Nvidia to deliver a proper VRM.
So yes, I'm ranting cause Nvidia always cheaps out on PCB components
great card to play your console ports!
If they can release a Titan Ultra that doesn't throttle with all 2880 cores and clock it at a full Gigahertz, it might just get Nvidia by until whenever Maxwell is due. This however, means the VRMs on the board must support at least 300W-350W of power to not throttle the chip. Nvidia themselved proved that their cards were throttled when they released their GTX 770s which consume more power than the 680s they originally replaced.
I honestly hope they don't waste their time with this dual-GPU card bullshit, as it would be ironic for them to release it, especially after they spent months "educating" everyone about RUNT frames and how much having 2x Xfire/SLI GPUs increases latency, ever since they released the Titan. I don't even think anyone here would give two shits about a dual Titan card for any reason, not even to drool over, since the Titans throttle on their own already without sharing a single PCB. It doesn't matter even if I had $5K burning a hole in my pocket, I wouldn't go anywhere near any dual-GPU card with a barge pole after seeing how it fucks up frame timings in most games.
Dude vdroop is going to happen regardless of what VRMs you have. Maybe some more than others, but I know erockers 7970s have quite a bit of vdroop as well and AMD is known to use a better power delivery system typically.
The GTX 580 Lightning I had didn't have noticeable vdroop as far as I can remember...
If you are talking about reference well, volterras on my 6990s didn't have noticeable vdroop either.
I get what you are saying though.
Actually, I would argue that the people stupid enough to drop $1k+ on a GPU are also stupid enough to not bother to overclock it, or figure out how to overclock it.
But my point is that even the ones that do want to tweak it can without a problem, the PWM is good enough for decent overclocks.
Watch out, you basically insulted a good part of this community
Anyway to answer in your tone, you'll eventually realize someday that money isn't directly proportional to stupidity.
Goes well with the fact that those people who make good money actually have used their brain in the right way.
I'm done since you had to empower your point with an insult
A good part of this community would likely agree with me actually.
No insult intended at all, the plain fact is that titans are completely overpriced and only an idiot would actually pay the outrageous premium for them, W1z has even said so himself.
And there are plenty of people out there with more money than brains. Just because you have money doesn't mean you're smart.
Titans are overpriced but I wouldn't go as far as calling Titan owners idiots. They have the extra cash. If I did I would've bought one too.
here. do this to fix your vdroop.
Already found out, but thank you
That's a GTX590 with HORRID VRMs.
It looks like a piece of solder drops directly onto that LED and turns it on! Neat gif!
It doesn't turn off. the .gif just restarts. The machine isn't on at the beginning of the gif, then it gets turned on, and the cards goes up in smoke.
Not quite ... but close enough
