PtRoLLFacE  +   1089d ago
that thing is a monster but the price is a monster as well, i heard from $800 to $1500 fuck i can buy a car with that lol

I could buy three PS4s with that money.

But that's the price of high-end PC gaming, I guess...

"I could buy three PS4s with that money"

Yea but why compare a low end part to a ultra high end one.

PS4 will feature a low end GPU compared to what a Titan will be. The rumored 7850 - 7870 is mid range tech as of today, when it releases it will actually be low end tech in PC terms.

A 7870 which is comparable to a PS4 would cost you 210usd.

Add in rest of the parts and you could easily make a PC for 500-600usd, which would have comparable performance to a PS4 and be fully upgradable for the future, not to mention will have full BC with any game you own today.

Edit: Lol people actually disagreeing 7870 being a low end part in the next 6 months.

You don't really need that much power for current games.
Most multi-platform games are dependent on consoles anyway. Some games don't even require any more than 2gb of ram (see: Skyrim).

And what YOU consider "low end tech" will actually perform better on consoles than it would on PCs. There is no standard on PC, so it's nearly impossible for developers to optimize games directly anywhere near as well as on consoles.

Anyway, can't wait to see the new wave of upcoming games.

Yeah, didn't think so...

The GTX680 should be able to play 99% of AAA PC titles on max resolution for the next couple years.
LightofDarkness  +   1088d ago
That all depends on how much the next gen consoles up the ante. This has been true for the last few years because most games are developed and targeted for PS3/360. Once it's PS4/new Xbox, expect every game to be as demanding on PCs as something like Crysis 3 from the beginning, and it will only become more demanding than that as the generation moves forward. About 1 year later (after the launch of consoles), you should be able to buy a GPU that will see you through most of the generation at high setting above 30FPS (like the 8800GTX/9800GTX). But anything bought prior to that is not a sure thing. I had a 7800GTX OC in 2006 that was just about able to manage 30FPS or so at reolutions like 1024x768 and 720p, and a GTX 260 a year later was able to handle most games quite well.

The thing is, PC GPUs may be way more powerful, but they are 1) not standard in all PCs (and are thus impossible to optimize for directly) and 2) have a much higher API overhead, meaning console developers can program almost direct-to-metal, gaining them much better performance with seemingly lower end parts.
kevnb  +   1088d ago
it really doesn't have much to do with consoles. Tons of games are multiplat and push way firther than consoles can right now. Then there are pc exclusives that are just huge in scope like arma, total war, and guild wars 2.
NOOBKILLA  +   1088d ago
The Titan is for PC gamers with Multi-Monitor setups running games on ultra settings at 5760x1200 and up. If you are running a single 1080p monitor then it will be overkill.

This may sound stupid but I will get this and sell it once the 790 gets released. I always feel the need to upgrade graphic cards. I cant help it :(

sounds like a dangerous addiction, financially.
vanethe  +   1088d ago
I just bought a 670 a few weeks ago , and i dont plan to upgrade any time soon , hell most game wont need that power anyways

Advice for the super geeks...Just get a next gen console. No need to spend stupendous amount, on a single GPU every 6 to 12months. Ur being sheep's and u don't realise it. Next gen, console will finaly be 1080p native so no excuse for it to be sub HD. Next gen will be optimised so it will basicaly be on par with PC as far as eye perception of visuals are concerned for an average consumer. Sure next level of GPU may be able do fo 4k at high resolution soon but according to research conducted by steam. Most PC gamers play on single 24inch monitor so 4k won't make a difference to most. Console will do for most gamers plus u have better exclusives unless ur one of those geeks who play boring anti social RPG's.

Have you not noticed you're reading and commenting actively on a website dedicated to videogames and their culture? You need look no further than the nearest mirror for a "super-geek".
solid_warlord  +   1088d ago
Would i still be a geek if i said i usualy play 2 casual games a year and i have not paid full retail price game for 2 year. Im a casual gamer not a geek who is willing to spend stupendous amount on GPU's every year. I see no value spending $$$ on GPU over next gen console. Hell, u can buy the next PS4 and 720 for the same price as highest end GPU. Don't be a fool, buy a console and be happy. 1080p and 60fps max is the sweet spot. Especialy if ur gaming on a monitor.

I need a good computer for my work, And by good I mean gaming good. So why should I buy a next gen console as well when it will probably be worse than my PC.

I run 2 x 22" Monitors
KING85  +   1088d ago
Lets get something out of the way. As mentioned before calling someone as "supergeek" as you phrased just makes yourself look quite juvenile. Secondly this myth of PC players buying a GPU every year is ridiculous. Their are those users who do that, but the majority of PC users don't. I have a GTX 680 and have no plans of buying a new GPU this year. Quite frankly most PC games don't utilize the power with exceptions of games like Metro 2033, Battlefield and I would say less than 10 more titles to add to the list. It has much to do with the resolution you play at and optimization of a game as Metro 2033 was not optimized well for PC.
I don't know if you're a PC player, and I'm not going to say you dont have any knowledge of gaming on PC, but i'll leave with you with a little advice.If you haven't played on PC, or if you have little to no knowledge of how it all works, then you really shouldn't be commenting about it. I see too many people try to justify and say that "people waste their money on GPUs". It's their money and they can use it however they please. I have no interest in SLI of a GTX 680, but I can understand those enthusiasts who have a 120hz monitor who are. People just have to understand that old proverb "to each his own". Don't try to convince someone otherwise by calling them names because in the end you lost the argument from the get go.

I'm still rockin' a single GTX460.

Constant upgrades on PC is a myth. This GPU is for gamers with more money than sense.
Twignberries  +   1088d ago
@solid_warlord you're a solid_turd. You do realise some of us are currently gaming at 2560x1440 at 100fps+ and all you want out of next gen is 1080p 60fps. Dude get with the times, 4k gaming (for pc) is just around the corner! (as in most likely late 2013-early 2014)

P.s. now im not saying anyone is inferior or anything like that, but you make it sound like these next gen consoles are doing something revolutionary when in reality, its something pcs have done consistently for the last decade at least

Not for me, and yes i have bf3 on ultra in my gaming pc, in fact i have 5 pcs, and i do play more on pc just cuz league of legends... but the fact is i like more playstation game than pc games, besides counter, bf3 and league of legends, most of pc games are boring to me, and yes i said to me, we all have different tastes, but for me ps3 games>pc games.
kevnb  +   1088d ago
this would be for 4k gaming
ExCest  +   1088d ago
More stuff I want but can't afford... I'll wait like seven years and be two generations behind again.
TABSF  +   1088d ago
Why do that, by your logic "I can't afford a GTX 480 so I'll wait several years so I can"

In 18 Months a GTX 580 will come out and the GTX 570 will be equal in performance and cheaper to a GTX 480

In 36 Months a GTX 680 will come out and the GTX 660 will be superior in performance and cost way less than a GTX 480

So I could get a GTX 480 now for $699 or wait 36 months a get a GTX 480 for $299

How about just get a GTX 660 for $199
ExCest  +   1088d ago
That's exactly what I meant. I can't afford this stuff so I have to wait before I get new stuff and by that time, that new stuff will be outdated.

A 660 is $300 last time I checked.
hellvaguy  +   1087d ago
Actually 660 range in price from $200-250. The 660ti goes from $250-$325.
ExCest  +   1087d ago
Yea, I noticed after researching after I said that.
Xristo  +   1088d ago
What I find funny is that if consoles had exchangeable video cards in them, I guarantee most console owners on N4G would upgrade....maybe even yearly? (as the PC myth goes) haha .... now THAT's the truth!
RedDeadLB  +   1088d ago
I just want to see benchmark for curiosity's sake. No way am I going to pay $1000 for a GPU. The GTX 660 can provide whatever I need for a long period of time. Hell, my current GTX 460 is going relatively strong.
RedDeadLB  +   1087d ago
Well I'll be damned, this card packs a punch! Still want to see game benchmarks though. 3DMark is of no use to me.

Anyway, if it's that much stronger, there's a big possibility that it might even be bottlenecked by an i7! Which means that soon Intel and AMD will have to provide a revolutionary CPU again to correspond with the growing power of GPUs. Which kind of sucks, thinking my i5 will soon be obsolete when I don't even have it for a full year.
Plagasx  +   1088d ago
Lol no thanks I'll just buy another 680 for SLI.
