Hmm...$1K yeah there will be lines. I'm sure it's sweet.

Better idea, lower all of the prices on the current GTX 600 series by 20%+ and I'd be a happy camper! ;)

Crysis 3 broke my SLI GTX 560's and I need new GPU's...

Dat price... I don't know what they were thinking, tbh.

AMD really has a chance now to come strong in 1 month. We'll see.

The high price OBVIOUSLY is related to low yields, if they could get thousands of those on the market at once then they would price it near the gtx680. This is more like a "nVidia collector's edition" model. Also gives nVidia the chance to claim "fastest single gpu on the planet" for some time.

AMD already said in (a leaked?) teleconference that they will not respond to the TITAN with any card. It's not worth the small market at £1000...

"Twelve 2 Gb packages on the front of the card and 12 on the back add up to 6 GB of GDDR5 memory. The .33 ns Samsung parts are rated for up to 6,000 Mb/s, and Nvidia operates them at 1,502 MHz. On a 384-bit aggregate bus, that’s 288.4 GB/s of bandwidth."

12x2 + 12x2 = 6? ...

"That card bears a 300 W TDP and consequently requires two eight-pin power leads."

Shows a picture of a 6pin and an 8pin...

I haven't even gotten past the first page but mistakes like this bug me

Nevermind, the 2nd mistake wasn't a mistake. That was my own fail reading.

[citation][nom]Ninjawithagun[/nom]$1000 per Titan card is a bit hard for most mid-range gamers and even high-end gamers to afford.[/citation]

Titan is a luxury product. It's not supposed to offer a competitive price/performance ratio, just as a Ferrari's price isn't based on its horsepower or fuel efficiency. Titan is a statement moreso than it is a bona-fide money maker for nVidia.

The idea of status-symbol computer components strikes me as a little silly, of course, but I'm not in the target market. Neither are most gamers, whether high end or not.

If you generally spend $1600 on the graphics' subsystem of your computer, then I'm not even sure you fit in the so-called high-end. Super-high-end, maybe. You are the 1%. :)

Waaaay too much hype :/
Its an engineering beauty, but what could make us wish it? Most gamers already have enough with 7970Ghz or 670s so... not a smart choice.

the chips are Gb (Gigabit) not GB (Gigabyte) which is a difference of 8x

so 12x2Gb+12x2Gb = 48 Gb = 6GB

chips are commonly refereed to in capacity as the bit size not byte size

Assuming proper notation is being observed (often its not), "b" is a bit and "B" is a byte.

6 Gigabytes = 48 Gigabits as 1 Byte = 8 bits.

When compared to the GTX690 I would have to differ on saying that " there's no real reason not to favor it over Titan " ..... Any SLI or crossfire solution, including dual board cards like the 690, will have microstutters when compared to a single card setup. This has been thoroughly shown in several tests, and have seen it myself. A single card will never have scaling issues or microstutters.

Unfortunately, Nvidia says the 690’s magnesium alloy fan housing was too expensive...
o_O and $1000 is cheap? The 690 sold for around the same price and nothing was said then. Can they come up with a better excuse? Idk, like aliens stole our magnesium... smh.

Pass! I don't think it's worth forking out $2000 for 2 of these cards no matter how good or rare or awesome they are. $2000 gets you a nice i7 rig with 2x AMD Radeon 7970 GHz Ed./ GTX 680 SLI that are more than capable of handling anything you throw at them. Time to go ahead and place that order for GHz cards. Nice to see your face Titan but you ain't selling at the price we are looking for!

I paid $349 for a 500mm2 GPU GTX570 @ launch day. 3 years later Nvidia think it is time to charge $1000 for a 500mm2 chip, $349 for a mid-end GK104 chip that more simpler than GTX560.

So I guess another 3yrs it will be $1500 for a 500mm2 chip? Damn Nvidia u are worst than Intel. At least Intel didnt charge/increase 1155 CPU @ $1000, 2011 socket CPU @ $2000 despite they have Performance monopoly.

Next GPU I am heading to AMD.

I'm personally waiting for Maxwell flagship gpu after kepler refresh to upgrade my gtx 690. which will probably outperform anything available now including my gpu at the flagship price of $500.
