This is both good and bad news. Good news, in that the architecture will be so much closer to PC, bad news in that it is only an APU, so graphics power will not be as big a jump in the next generation as we had hoped.
Kyle and team are also betting on that the next gen Xbox will also go AMD...
Opinions. How much faster will an over clocked Titan be vs a Lightning running at 1400mhz?
I am quite perplexed by the TITAN. Compared to a GE 7970 is a mild 30% increase or so apples to apples and while that is huge the price gap is even larger. Its more than twice as expensive as the mean price for the 7970. Now I have to decide whether not having to deal with SLI/XFire is worth the not insubstantial price increase hmm.
I want to see this OC on water.
If it could reach 690 stock speeds, I'll be impressed then and save to buy one.
Both Asus and EVGA are releasing factory overclocked versions of the Titan that are basically running at 690 levels. Further, even with a vanilla Titan I don't think it would be very hard to get it running at stock 680 speeds.
Consoles. Whether you like them or not, it can't be denied that they've put a severe drag on graphic advancement. When the larger market (unfortunately) has only 1/10th the processing power of a current gen PC, not as much work is going to go into taking advantage of said PC.
Hardware great, price is shit. I wonder how much it will come down in price in the next 6+ months?
How much lower would the price be if it only had 3gb?
Its just that if you are not running 3+ monitors, 2-3gb seems to be the sweet spot.
It probably won't because AMD isn't releasing desktop 8000 series GPUs until the end of year/next year. They said they're just working on drivers and OEM products (mobile GPUs, consoles ect). Nvidia has no reason to lower it without AMD pushing them. That's just how I see it... But who knows?
I think it will... There's not a whole lot of people willing to drop $1k on a GPU, if Nvidia wants to make money they'll lower the price to $700-800 in the next few months considering that could get them a lot more sales.
Read this before considering Crossfire. ITs a mess.
1 TITAN Card = 6.25 Ms/sec in 1:37
2 TITAN Cards = 12.50 Ms/sec in 50 seconds
3 TITAN Cards = 18.86 Ms/sec in 31 seconds
the gtx690 came out 9 months ago and it has not come down in price.Hardware great, price is shit. I wonder how much it will come down in price in the next 6+ months?
I hope they sell a lot of these tbh- Its not like we have bad options beyond this new card price-wise. Overall we want Nvidia (and Amd) to do well so they can keep cranking out their sweet video cards. If they go bye bye there goes the enthusiast with them.
i wonder if games on nvidia cards will run faster than amd cards when ps4 and x720 come out because both of the new consoles will be using amd tech.
I do feel the price for entry is bit high, but if you put Nvidia's previous flagships into perspective and consider how much those things cost back then (GTS 8800 Ultra was $800+ 6 years ago), the price of the Titans don't seem farfetched at all...
Default driver settings, I did not change any double precision options.
