    It feels like Nvidia is trolling his most loyal customers...

    First they release the "regular" Titan, then the Ti and in less than a month they release the "full" Titan...

    Worst than this only what Nvidia is doing to their partners with the Founders Edition...

    Meh....not much of an improvement.

    You need deep wallets and trust funds or a really nice monthly paycheck to be able to afford any Titan.

    My next upgrade will be Volta Ti in about 2 years.

    Some people want to drive 1440p@120+ or 4k@60.
    The 1070 can't reliably do that nowadays; the 1080ti can, being on average 50-75% faster

    Call the dairy farms. This is ridiculous how much they are abusing their enthusiasts.

    I was expecting a Titan version of Volta in the summer, but not this. They could have at least gone with A full P100 GPU with 16GB HBM2 memory like their top-end server cards. Nvidia is milking more and more.
    If they had given current Titan X (Pascal) owners a trade-in option to get the new Xp version cheap, I might have considered upgrading, but I guess that isn't Nvidia's philosophy.

    I'm leaning towards giving my money to AMD for the next GPU upgrade more and more, provided they can finally deliver in the high-end performance segment again without charging ridiculous prices. Then again, my next GPU upgrade is likely quite a while away anyhow, my current card is good enough for all games and software and also overclocks nicely. I don't see a reason to upgrade until the performance of new video cards roughly doubles that of my current one.

    I wonder if we could use the Titan Xp BIOS on the Titan X, though.

    Nvidia should offer a trade-up promo for people that bought the 2016 Titan X cards.

    I kinda had a feeling a fully enabled part was coming as they have gotten yields up on the Pascal chips now. I just didn't expect them to do a refresh on the Titan so soon.

    Enough of Pascal...Bring on Volta!

    Seriously though...enough of Pascal. It just ran out of juice. This is its Swan Song.

    This launch makes me think Volta may be closer than we thought. Maybe we will see GV104 GPU's in December. That would be nice.

    I'm hoping for a September paper-launch with November availability.

    New architecture will breathe some life into PC gaming hardware.

    This was PCGH.de's April fools joke last weekend...just with a $/€3k price tag. Wonder how much they knew LOL.

    Pure, uncut Pascal...

    People who can afford those monitors can afford 1080Ti no problem. Buying a Titan is just stupid IMO, it's better to buy two 1080Ti.

    Having no competition and the demand being there, they can do whatever they like.

    As long as costumers have a philosophy of buying the best without considering price, they can raise the price all they want. I always go for price/performance and generally they last 3 to 4 years.

    Still no real competition. You can have good, better, best, bester... or you can settle with the less expensive option.

    So they should take AmD's approach and just overclock the current generation cards by 6% and call it next gen?

    Cool card but absurd price again..
    They could have at least dropped regular TX to $999 and TXP to $1199

    You'd be better off buying vintage consoles to play games on, at least they go up in value lel.
