    It only starts to become really impressive at 1600P.

    I don't think these cards were made with the 1080P gamer in mind tbh.

    I hope they don't actually try to sell this thing for $1000. I should be worth about the same as the 690. Maybe a little more just because it's a single GPU, but it still doesn't outperform the 690 enough to justify a huge price difference between the two. Cool card though, and thanks for the review, Hilbert.

    When I read the review I didn't even bother looking at 1080p... I only was looking at the 1600p benches.

    Their answer would be a big fat yes.

    Exactly and the performance is extremely good at 1600P.

    1. I want it.
    2. I can´t afford it.
    3. I want it.

    That picture with three of these running it´s like lesbian porn to me, they don´t do much stuff but sure is nice to see them in top of each other.

    Imagine what we´ll have in ten years, i think zombies will actually come out of the screen and eat my brains. Exciting times.

    With all the moaning about the price including myself I've just come to realise that Titan is a semi-pro GPU which is capable of some serious workloads (2,688 CUDA Cores and 4,500 Gigaflops) at a third the price of their fully blown GK110 Tesla/Quadro cards. Dream come true for 3D animators/architects and the likes.

    Price is the only thing that is out of place and it's nvidia's bad or some might say clever decision making that left so many of us scratching our heads looking at the price tag.. By branding Titan as a GTX nvidia knew they would only get a massive amount of buzz from the enthusiast community spreading the word about their new product. But that's where it ends and that's all nvidia wanted IMO. In other words piggybacking..!

    Nvidia shouldn't have marketed this GPU as a Flagship GTX but rather a cheaper Tesla for semi-pro professionals because that's where the card shines and with that in mind only then does the price make sense.

    After all this is a perfect example of Nvidia's clever business tactics, and it's exactly what we have witnessed here today.

    Imo no its not, more like sweet spot at 1920x1200 with max gfx, anything higher and you drop below magic 60fps mark in recent titles really quick.. Yes even in Crysis1 :p

    Or The witcher2 maxed with uber & AlanWake, even 1080P is waay to much :S

    Check techpowerUp multi display 5760x1080 chart, some are really disappointing and that extra vram buffer doesnt help one bit. This GPU still doesnt have enough muscle to run at such high reso.

    Idk about Assassins Creed3, but just wdf at 5760 reso.

    Overall im not that impressed, I would be if it sold for ~ 600€ anything more is just not worth it, 7970Ghz edition looks a lot better now.. Or yes even 2x 7950. :)

    At this point i ask me if you have really watch the result.. ( maybe a little inversion ) ( even if agree some could have expect a bit more, hopefully in shine in some titles, less in some other.. ) Now the price, well....thats another question. I let anyone free to know if they want put so much money and will not say it worth or not it.

    I think they need to get the price down at let's say 500 euro and then it will be a real winner.

    Im sure they will sold many even at this price ( at the least the first 20K should be sold easely ), then they could still lower price, but 500 i doubt, specially if they have something like the GTX 780 who should come then. ( let say 800$, a little sister "titan" at 700$ and then 780 550-600$ ).

    But still at 27-35% average over the 7970Ghz, they have not so much place to fill for the price.

    Why test at 4x AA? Why don't they use absolute maximum settings on all the titles?

    Damn, Metro 2033 at 1600p is still weak.

    Yes I did, and I can see your point.

    Now here my point. For the same price as ONE of these cards you could build a FULL mid-range PC and game happily with any game at medium to high settings at 720/1080p.....

    Kinda puts things into perspective doesn't it...?

    For the asking price of one of these it should destroy everything out there, and with 6GB of VRAM they kinda shot themselves in the foot there. This is not needed for single GPU performance, its more gained towards multi-monitor and 1440/1600p gaming and even then there are benchmarks out there that show SLI 660ti's beating one of these in 8/10 tests and two of those are half the price of this one. Also how many people actually game at this res? and how many have triple monitors?

    No matter which way you look at it the card just can not be justified when there are cheaper alternatives out there.

    what we are missing is 3-way OVERCLOCKED titans on multiple-monitor setups :/
    why dont we have that, i see 3-way + multi, then i see OC, but separately.
