My opinion about this is the following. Since the GTX6xx and 7xx series, Nvidia has the following idea that they will continue to use in every generation: 1. You game at 1080p and want full detail? Ok, buy one of our x80(Ti) series. 2. You game at around 2560x1440 and want full detail? No problem, give me $1000 and buy our "Titan like" card. 3. You game at Surround resolutions and want full detail? Sli is your way to go. That's what I think is going on. The days that the x80 series are the flagships are over. I suspect a "Titan like" card for the 8 series as well.
