Does this mean the price for the regular titan will be reduced?
It means the price of the old one will stay the same until all inventory of it is gone. Try finding one online... very little stock of it is left anyway.

Reviews for us gaming in 4K and 5760x1200 would be nice. Especially with the games that use more than 3GB at those resolutions with AA cranked up.

Will we see people flashing GTX 780ti's into Titan Blacks when someone gets hold of the card bios? Happened with the GTX 680 am I right?

@Blahman11 Why? It's literally just a 780 TI 6GB. I don't think the Titan supports workstation card drivers so it's no use. Also, I think it was actually a 690 to a k5000. Please Correct me if I'm wrong, but there is absolutely no reason to flash a 780ti into a Titan.

To unlock the FP64 performance.
I mentioned this in a previous thread, but I'm really surprised there hasn't been more discussion about unlocking the 780/780 Ti using custom firmware.

Not sure how a 690 would be flashed to a K5000

And how can the 780's support double-point-precision? Is that a firmware or hardware feature?

Thanks for the link.

It's a hardware feature. The 780's already support double precision, the performance is just greatly reduced compared to their single precision. The key is the method Nvidia uses to cap the performance, and to my knowledge the FP64 cores aren't fused off in the 780's. They're functional, it's the clocks that are limited to 1/8 that of their FP32 cores, resulting in 1/24 FP32 performance. So I would think some custom firmware could enable full FP64 in the drivers (trick the drivers into thinking it's a Titan).
 
"The card will come to shelves soon, and will carry an MSRP price of $999"

I think anyone looking to upgrade to a top level card should wait for the high end Maxwell in the next few months and see how it fares (personally I like the small fry intros first and then working up to the bigger and better..like working up to a climax). Looking to replace my 680s for a next level single card solution and eventually get two of those for 4K, but would not even think about buying this card without seeing what's coming with the flagship Maxwell.
 


with it's intended price and how nvidia did not send any review unit to reviewer (since gaming performance is the same as GTX780 Ti) it is clear nvidia target with this card is not gamer although boutique system will still take the card to integrate with their system. so for gamer cards like titan make zero sense to them.
