    Don't you expect also that they are fast too? They can not treat you as a "last selling gpu card" user :bang:

    #polemical mode off

    I hope doesn't happen it again, but I doubt it ...

    I think back then people thought one of two things
    1) Nvidia could do this because of their work with M$ on DX12 in making the Forza Demo
    2) Deliberately holding it back, launched it coz AMD launched Mantle.

    Since DX12 spec is finalized, I hope we can have one last push on DX11. Something like 3mil draw calls multi-threaded.

    I removed the benchmark, I think I should keep it around to test new drivers, never would have thought r349 < r352 in draw calls

    Hopefully all this will keep nvidia honest in the future, but I doubt it.

    The fact that is took all the web to get response, and we don't know what this driver will improve, make me not to believe nVidia anymore.

    Who knows, when all of this go quiet again, they gonna screw Kepler again and then maxwell, i bet soon 780TI=Radeon 250X

    I think the same. Now it will be hard for me to regain the trust on nVidia.
    I hope that "smart" users and websites will check them like AMD in the future.

    I totally agree.
    It is a big investment for an enthusiast user.

    The titan z has been around the 1500 usd mark for quite some time. I doubt they were selling a $3000 mark and they dropped the price.

    Three grand isn't even a blip on Nvidia's radar in terms of total sales. Dude needs to get over himself. They'll do what's right because they are a company that relies on its reputation to continue selling superior products.

    Not surprising at all. Really curious to see the performance difference.

    I would like to see Nvidia continue to properly support Kepler until Pascal. It's the minimum reasonable.

    I'll be relieved if it fixes performance to be relative to AMDs cards last year, ie 780 > 290, etc. If it does, Nvidia will still get a lot of heat (and deservedly so) for holding back on Kep since Max's release. If as conspiracists think their intent was to encourage Kep owners to upgrade to Max, it failed miserably. Many folk have been upset enough to consider AMD instead, which I probably would have done myself if not resolved.
