    Imagine being what the gaming industry calls a 'whale' and spending this sort of money playing a few or even a single game instead of buying a Titan (heck, not even knowing what a Titan is because you own a fricking console)!!!

    Is the "HDMI" port on this 2.1 complaint? Can this card drive 3k

    and here we go another deep for nvidia stocks ahead :p
    this 14 and 16 nm era must fade away we need more efficient and powerfull nods aka 7 and 8nm that doesn't cost a kidney :)

    Sadly with no competition Nvidia can price the cards how they see fit. AMD has nothing, wait for Navi all you want but i doubt it will even hit 2080 levels let alone the cards above it (and if Nvidia release more cards since then)

    Sadly though good in some ways AMD are focusing on CPU's right now, best chance for competition might come from Intel depending on how good their gpu might be, alternatively if Apple finally get in on the action. Otherwise its Nvidia all day everyday sadly

    Typical thread with those complaining about the price of a Ferrari, while commuting to work in their reliable and sensible Honda. FFS, SSDD

    So they must use Horst Fuchs with Gunter to sell some of these for only 2500$

    Nah, if you look at pure player counts, the most popular games are often those that don't push the graphical envelope and can even run on some Intel onboard GPU's in some cases. You can add all the whistles and bells, but it won't necessarily make it a good game.

    True, PC gaming is huge when it's low spec games.

    The market for high end games is much smaller, which is why i find it funny when people start talking about downgrade or parity nonsense. A vocal minority is still a minority.

    I have to say that is one nice looking card, and while i would never buy one i don't think $2500 is that much money.

    i share most of the opinions on the Titan RTX that i see here. i just wanted to point out that the a.i. and big data markets are huge and growing at an incredible rate.
    if, in fact the launch availability of the RTX series was gimped in order to have wide availability at launch for the Titan RTX, well played Nvidia. except for breeding resentment of course.
    the role of this card is where the money's at, despite the price.

    nVidia has plenty of competition--why do you think they crippled the 1060? 192bit bus, 6GBs vram, no SLI support--and marked it at the same price as AMD's 480/580/590--which is superior on each of those fundamental points. nVidia wants their customers to pay more to get SLI, more ram, and a better bus, etc. But people do not have to play nVidia's game because of AMD, do they? I'd call that strong competition. But I do wish nVidia luck in selling all six (or was it 16?) of these $2500 Titanic-Sucker cards...! For every GPU sold at the $1k mark, it is likely 100 will sell at the <$300 mark. The real action commercially is in the <$300 sweet spot for discrete GPUs. Ratio is likely 300-1 when compared with the > $2k mark. I wonder how long it will take before *everyone* understands what a scam "RTX" actually is. I would guess it won't be long. People like to think that the company with the "fastest" cpu and that "fastest" *cough* GPU, according to selected benchmarks, of course, has little if any competition--and that price doesn't matter. The fact is those very high-priced tiers are not where the "competition" actually is--because of the numbers.

    Many rich dudes got rich by not being stupid with their money... And they aren't going to jump on a $2500 discrete GPU to play 3d games, unless they are fairly stupid, I should think! The only things AMD needs to do to stay ahead of nVidia is stay honest--don't pull cheesy scams like "RTX"--and keep on providing more bang for the buck as we've seen with the 1060 vs 480/580/590 for the last few years. Stick to the facts, don't sensationalize, and behave and market AMD products rationally. Those are all the reasons that nVidia doesn't figure in my GPU landscape--and hasn't since 2002.

    Anyway...I've heard for the last 25 years that "the PC is dead," and that "PC gaming is dead," etc.--which, interestingly enough, has never been true. Indeed, all game consoles now being sold are x86 PCs (by AMD) internally! The x86 PC has triumphed conclusively. The fact is that while people have counted 3d gaming down and out on any number of occasions, the market is far larger today than it has ever been--and it is still growing. I don't think you have to worry about it mystically just vanishing one day...;)

    This is a luxury card, and like everything luxury there are diminishing returns. Why shouldn't rich people have nicer things?

    Gaming is also a luxury, PC gaming even moreso.

    I'm also confused by the statement that AMD is ahead of Nvidia, they aren't and that won't change until they start acting like Nvidia.

    I swear these cards are an internal joke for Nvidia to see how much people will pay for this and to see how much they can jack up the rest of the lineup to make them look cheap relative to this card.

    Nice Nvidia is doing what APPLE does with releasing products, the BREADCRUMB 101 stunt. Just a little bit at a time.

    This is a ridiculous statement. Pc gaming has gotten cheaper ever since it started. You can use lower resolutions and settings if you don't have the state of the art system. And for consoles, you must have not been around when new SNES game cost up to $70. Hell, I think after tax, Super Street Fighter 2 for SNES was $75 at the mall gamestore I went to. Meanwhile, whiners of today balk at paying $60 for new games that are vastly more complex than any SNES game.

    Exactly; not to mention these are high end top market GPU's too. It's a little ridiculous that people are complaining about the pricing of the best GPU's on the market. If they really feel it's too much, they shouldn't be buying them in the first place and maybe should spend a little less time on these forums and a little more time improving their lives. I live in Taiwan which isn't exactly famous for having the highest salary in the world but I still can afford it and if I couldn't, you wouldn't see me on here complaining.

    It’s like cars. For most people a car that costs 60K is ok but not a Lamborghini. That’s a luxury product.

    I’m ok driving something much much cheaper.

    7nm must be coming soon if they’re rolling these out before 2019.

    For the record, I'm definitely not the target audience for this card. Would be a bit ridiculous to run TL, TL2, DA:O or DA2 on any Titan card. I still find the prices of current gen nVidia cards to be ridiculous, regardless of "new features"....

    If you have a problem with my opinion, feel free to ignore my posts. I really don't care one way or the other. I'm tired of the "my opinion means more than your opinion" mindset that seems to have infected this forum over the last several years.

    How much of a difference turning down shadows makes, depends on the game. Some games, it has a rather large impact on performance. Other games, the difference is nearly unnoticeable. Some games, shadows add to the play-ability while some games, it hinders it. It's really a "game by game" feature. Not trying to argue, mind you. I enable or disable shadows depending on performance and play-ability. I also adjust settings according to perceived framerates. If the game doesn't run smooth, I tinker with settings until it does. Same as I suspect you do.

    For the most part, as usual, we agree.

    I post on 6 different forums. The one thing that is consistent across all of them is that people deviate from the subject matter. Not every post has to be purely about tech. When a piece of "tech" has a price tag attached to it, of course people are going to complain about pricing. Most people are completely ignorant of how much money goes into R&D of a top tier product. That doesn't mean people don't have a right to complain about pricing. Some people would prefer to complain about the price while swiping their debit card than to stay silent and go without. Personally, I find the prices of nVidia's current gen cards ridiculous. Neither the performance nor the feature set justifies the pricing. However, since people are so willing to pay the price, regardless of how they feel about it, the prices will continue to increase until sales decline as a result. While I'm not the target audience for these cards, their prices do affect the products that I am in the target audience for. As prices for "high-end" products increases, there is a trickle down effect that causes pricing for lower segment cards to increase as well. What was once the $300-400 market is now the $500-650 market if you're buying nVidia.

    But, quite honestly, if you have a problem with people's opinions....even though you don't seem to have a problem posting your own in AMD threads, maybe you should log out and go improve your own life...

    I only complain about the price of Ferrari's because there's a few idiots in my city that own them, and still can't drive the damn speed limit!!!! A Ferrari should NEVER be running 10mph UNDER the damn speed limit!!!!! The same can be said of the few idiots in my city that own Porsche's.... Either Porsche and Ferrari need to increase their prices dramatically, or the idiots in my city that own them need to learn to at least drive the damn speed limit!!!! Sorry.....had run-ins with a few last week that were running 10-20mph UNDER the speed limit and it really irked me cuz I almost rear-ended the Porsche cuz he was doing 25mph in a 45mph zone and cut in front of me for no reason.
