    4 months ago profits are double what they are today. I wouldn't of bought a gpu for those prices for mining then, but I could see how some could. Today the difficulty has risen A LOT from all those new miners, and prices are also down probably because all the new miners sell as soon as they get any coins. Today though, miners I doubt would pay those prices.

    It was bound to happen, like it happened with bitcoin.

    Anyway miners go for the cheap route, the difference between this and two separate graphics cards can buy you another platform.

    Pretty much what I've come to expect from dual Hawaii, nothing more nothing less.

    Impressive package nonetheless.

    I have two Radeon R9 290X cards but it doesn't have any difference with R9 295X2. I think they are the same and I had two Titan Black cards but it didn't have less performance than TitanZ.
    Titan Z is 2 times faster than Titan Black but 3 times higher price but R9 295X2 is 2 times faster than R9 290X and 2 times higher price. so as a gamer, I prefer R9 295X.

    You're right. NVIDIA has it's first failure in a long time with the Titan-Z
