Is it true this was made only in limited quantities? Thanks in advance...

Perjoss1887d ago

If I remember correctly its 10,000 units

ATi_Elite1887d ago

rather just have a AMD HD7970 GHZ Edition!

Heck a HD7970 GHZ Edition CFX set-up is cheaper than a Titan and beats it!

$1000 GPU........I'll PASS.........unless some Ray Traced game comes out next week but other than that NOT NEEDED!

Waste of money. Just to max out console ports?

CapsLocke1887d ago

I second that, this card's price is embarrassing to all in PC space. Ridicules.

Perjoss1887d ago

not really, it all depends on if you get into modding, Some of those high res texture paks can really bring high end systems to the sub 60 frames numbers. There are some mods that add totally insane options, like the sikk mod for Doom 3. Many mods also add crazy draw distance, which can really be taxing.

Besides, apparently even a GTX 690 struggles to get Crysis 3 past 45 frames per second, and this Titan card is not as fast as a 690.

That is a down right lie. I do not have a clue where you got that statement from, but i sure would love for you to cite the source.
I run crysis 3 at 60 FPS, all advanced graphics set to very high. And I have a gtx 690.

The bottom right of the screen is my frame rate courtesy of FRAPS software.

Some nice reading material for you.

classic2001887d ago

Yup as long as a game is not optimize for a card no matter how powerful it is then its useless.

Next gen is around the corner and some high end PC will finally be able to push their cards to the limit.

ABizzel11887d ago

It cost too much for what you're getting.

It should have been $800 ($700 actually, but NVIDIA charges premium). The 690 and 7990 outperform the card by 20% at the same price, and the Titan may outperform the 680 by 50%, but it's cost 2x as much.

You're better off buying 2 680's or 670's for that matter and calling it a day, than buying a single Titan.

kevnb1887d ago

Not that its worth buying, but crysis 3 is dx11 only on PC, please explain this to me.

And it's slower then the gtx 690,lol

ZoyosJD1887d ago

But the GTX690 is actually two GPUs compressed onto one card. With a driver update these could be running on par in various games and a GTX690 will cost you a grand and you can't be sure SLI will always work effectively in a game.

MontyQ1887d ago

I got 2 580s in SLI for $600 total on sale new after rebates this was like a year ago, thats $400 cheaper then this titian and it beats it still, sure titian is a single gpu but at $1000 you can do SLI 680s and whoop this thing.

trenso11887d ago

trenso11886d ago
