Nvidia surprised the Titan outsold the year-old GTX 690 in just 3 months

Nvidia’s dual-GPU behemoth, the GeForce GTX 690, has been out in the wild for over a year now, but the equally freakishly expensive GTX Titan has outsold it in less than three months. Now either the GTX 690 sold a pifflingly small amount (quite possibly) or the GTX Titan has been better received than even Nvidia thought.

According to Nvidia, it’s the latter. (Industry, NVIDIA, PC, Tech)

Another factor in it all may be that with the new coming generation of consoles, people are feeling the pressure to update their PC's as well. To me, the whole point of playing a PC is to be able to play at the setting i want with an experience at 60fps. If the new consoles arn't going to provide that, its going to make sense for people to update their PC's.

I guess that's true for people who haven't updated in a while, since I bought a 670, I'll wait till I can really see that I 'need' a new card. There will just be another series next year. I probably won't upgrade till 2015.

I don't see a need for anything faster for several or more years, unless your doing something crazy like 3 monitors or want an overpriced and laggy 2500x1900+ monitor.

That 670 will last you a looong time.

Im on a laptop with 460m and i can play Metro last light at 720p high settings no problemo.

I bet you can rape it

Same here. I got a 670 FTW this past Christmas and it handles everything I play real well.

why would people feel pressured because of ps4 or nextbox....lol...a 3-4 year old gtx 480 will mop the floor with anything the new consoles will ever do

true pc gaming is on an entirely different level

Still using a 5870 graphics card and still runs games well enough, though as soon as Source 2 is announced i'll be upgrading to the best single graphics card at 1080p for high frame rates, not one of these overpriced as hell Titan cards.. it's sad that even the Titan card can't even run a constant 60fps on some games, if they want to be taken seriously they need to be 50% more powerful on top of what they are already.

Plus unless graphics cards get a serious jump of 200%+ power, 4k gaming will never be possible at good frame rates. Not that it matters to me, 1080p is great for me and will be for a while since it's the best resolution for high speed frame rates. Plus none of the micro stuttering bullshit you get with 2 cards, and they even limit the SLi connection to 1 on a card because they know 3 cards decrease the stutter..

so they kinda give a big F you and make you want to buy a dual chip card just to have 2 SLi connections so you can buy a 3rd card to get less stuttering. On top of that the stutter issue has been around since SLi/Crossfire existed, so much for fixing things!.

Single card & 1080p = best.

Yea the Titan is over priced severely. Should be about 600$
bumnut  +   520d ago
£600 maybe
bumnut  +   520d ago
I can't go back to 1920 x 1080 after playing 2560 x 1440!

You don't need 2 cards for 1440p gaming, My 570 handles it very well but does hit the VRAM limit in some games. A single card with 2 GB VRAM would be sufficient.

Damn! Am I the only PC Gamer on a budget?
BLKxSEPTEMBER  +   520d ago
Nope!!! im right there with you man. i have a 7950 sapphire and im happy with that. only cost me 300$ and i can run pretty much every game on max.
Prcko  +   520d ago
Titan is a beast,anyway
did you play metro last light?
if yes do you have low GPU usage problem and fps loss(my gpu is going from 99% load to 50%)

lol, I feel your pain bro. I'm still rocking the GTX550Ti.
Martywren  +   520d ago
Lol im using a budget gfx card too.
Hydralysk  +   520d ago
I'm running a GTX 560 Ti, and frankly except for metro last light I haven't played any games where that wasn't enough to run everything at max settings.

Since I'm not someone who plays a lot of graphics intensive games, I don't see myself upgrading for at least another 2 years.
