Newegg's got them up guys! Go grab one! HERE hehehe
5 dollar shipping? Screw that. I was gonna order one too.
It's a GTX690... I searched Titan and it took me there.. Pictures looks right and price... but it's a GTX690
I was wondering about this. Since Nvidia has been selling GK104 K10 Quadros at 50% discount how they were going to distinguish from the upcoming GK110 Quadros.
If you want Titan to run Double Percision. It will lock that card at base clock. Its a smart move since this is aimed at gamers but you'd think its been crippled enough at $1k with no ECC and support they'd leave it alone.
Just thought that was interesting.
If nvidia needed this incredible jump in power consumption and price, for 30% perf increase, i don't see any radeon card coming 50% faster than 7970 Ghz, at least for a year. Maybe a refresh at 20% faster than 7970 Ghz/gtx 680 in about 8 months. Sad story...
I am aware of the taxes in the US as seen as i lived here for 11 years now.. BUT yes VAT is still tax it's just politicians making another way up to tax you on top of other taxes.
Taxes pay for Schools, Teachers, Law Enforcement, Hospitals (in some EU), Welfare (think disability) and much more. It also pays for the biggest expense of most countries - the Military (inclusive of R&D and actually funding an Army/Navy?air Force). And Nuclear Weapons.
USA is resource rich (Like Russia and China and other BRIC countries). It can afford lower taxes as it sells or produces a lot of it's own consumable product.
The UK is tiny in comparison, has no wealth of natural resource and relies on taxes to fund all of the above.
Titan is still too expensive.
Pictures aren't "right". They have pictures of a GTX690 there, look at the fan shroud. Clearly has GTX 690 imprinted on it.
Fixed that for you
It is expensive because of exclusivity, unless you can find a substitute the price is going to stay expensive.
Who cares about VAT when it's already so expensive. I mean if you can afford something that's 900 I'm sure you can add another hundred or so. If you make hard work and sacrifices to raise 900 then probably this card is not for you.
Loaded power consumption of 214 watts (from PCGH - in German so break out your fav translator if req'd)
Nvidia also seem to have the noise/cooling solution down to a fine art.
I don't care about any of it...this card looks nice, and I want it. I'm not too concerned with performance...it's better than GTX680, I'm sure.
The price tag though, that's tough. I need at least two...but there is no way for me to afford such things.
Why do you need 2 Titan's lol. Im sure 6GB of vram is enough for your monitors. And yeah a price of 799 to 899 would make a lot more sense.
Yea, I seen that after the double take.. I meant to say the overall picture... That heatsink shroud looks very close to the one they are using on the titan.. I had 3 of them in my cart and right before I hit buy.. I seen it was a GTX690... j/k lol there's no way I could afford 1... Let alone 3.. hehehe
There's more to a VGA than the amount of ram it has. And you wonder why you aren't taken seriously...
I already have dual 7950's, and they aren't fast enough, and a single Titan isn't going beat dual 7950's. Two Titans...maybe. Maybe three. I want that smecksky SLI bridge, too.
I WANT DIS NAOW!!
sadly, I have kids to feed instead.
dat sli bridge :3
oh jesus. And yes I know theres more to a VGA then ram lol. :shadedshu
The first thing i noticed was that SLI bridge.
I hope you can buy it.
I mean really, if you can...that might be a deal closer for me. Sell me three cards with a bridge in a nice package deal. I already got the Dominator Platinums...too bad the pic looks like you'd never be able to install any case plugs, like power, reset, you know...the important stuff.
But it better damn well light up the NV logo...dammit.
I'd like to see them stick with this design for future cards. Looks great!
yeah, these cards go PERFECTLY with the platinums! Im surprised the card will be priced at $1,000. It won't beat the 690 I dont think, and the 690 is still priced that high.
If performance beats GTX 680/7970ghz by close to 50% overall, it will be worth it... and I will buy one. If not, well... Congrats to those who decide to buy this.
Agreed Bring on Thursday.
I wouldnt even want to stick Titan on water cooling either. The stock cooling is way to sexy to take off.
Overclocked vs reference 7970GHz/680 I think it will go 50% average (that's around GTX690 performance)
That's what I'm waiting to find out... and the price. That of course is a big factor. I can afford it, two if I want.. But I'm not going to jump on the ship if I don't personally find the price/performance ration to my liking. At 2560x1440 I could always use more grunt.
Can someone consolidate news threads... what a mess! Two threads, same shit. Less drooling more modding!
