While it looks sexy as hell, those of us that have jumped off the SLI bandwagon don't miss it at all.

I feel you. I had Titan X SLI, and then I think it was Rise of the Tomb Raider that made me just rip out one of the Titans and eBay it. I'm done with SLI.

Yeah. I sold off one of my Titan X's last year. Bought a G-Sync display. But the biggest thing that helped was turning off frame rate monitoring in games and just enjoying them. The Titan X is fully capable of maxing out most games at 1440P.

I have a Titan X SLi setup in my primary gaming rig, but in all honesty, I didn't see the need in exceeding two cards. My two other iTX systems that only have one Titan X (I own a total of four Titan X) really don't seem slower than my SLi setup. The iTX systems' cards are SC versions, while my gaming system has the regular non-SC version, but I don't think it really matters too much...;)

I did not pay for my four TitanXs, my one TitanZ, my six 980Tis, my three 980s, or four regular Titans so I just use what I have and build the max that I can because I have to use it for something. Surely one TitanX would suffice for real world use. I am building this for VR though. Hope SLI will benefit me in that regard

You know what's fun is trolling console players. "Ooh we are going to get 1080P 60FPS on the console!!" Lol I'm going to get 1440p with full AA at at least 60FPS lol

SLI won't work with VR, and it's probably going to stay that way for some time. I don't have the source off hand, but it's well documented. The VR SDKs have features like asynchronous time warp that don't work well with SLI enabled. Someone please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

VR SLI is a thing, part of the VRWorks middleware package.

**This is not a troll post, serious question***

So Titan X owners, how does it feel now that the $380 1070 is faster than the $1000 Titan X?

Does this make you furious at nVidia? We know that technology advances but this seems like an unusually hard kick in the nuts. "Time to upgrade from a Titan X to a 1070" seems like a hard thing to swallow.

I bought the Titan X for cuda first and gaming second. So I'm not mad.

As other people have already stated, we spent the money because we wanted the best, and most of us knew full well that it would be obsolete within a year or two.

Feels like we all enjoyed the single fastest GPU for over a year.

I agree with demingo. Technology constantly advances. How do you think Titan Black owners felt when the $329 GTX 970 was released and it was just about as fast in gaming?

Doesn't faze me a bit. In fact, I'm pumped that the next time I buy a video card, I can look forward to a nice performance increase. I look back at all the cards I've owned, all nice in their day. None of them are still on the top of the heap, didn't really figure the TX would be any different.

That said, my TXs bench at over 1500 on most things. If the 1070 is faster than a stock clock TX - and I bet that's what they used, no OC - then I might still have a little something for them left in these old dogs.

Yeah my OC'd Titan plays games games at more than adequate frame rates. I'm looking forward to the Titan version of these new pascal chips though the thought of a 2.1GHz chip I'm stoked to see how baby pascal performs.

I highly doubt my twin-titan system runnung both at 1450 will be anything other than 'impressive' for a while. That, and thems' the rules for PC gaming and technology in general. If you buy the top of the line, you're spending money on the early access to the power, not the power itself. The 1070 can't take away our time spent with these awesome cards.

And in a few years, when these Titans are struggling to keep up, I'll pick up a couple of the latest and greatest cards for the time and start the cylce all over again.

I'm hoping to pick up a Titan X for sub 500 when these drop

Not to be a dick, but I think most of us don't care.

Im a 2 x Titan X owner since their launch day. And I'll be a 2 x 1080 owner on their launch day (providing I can get in the nvidia direct store before they sell out).

People who buy things like Titan X's generally buy them close to launch day, and they replace them with the next gen card close to launch day. The cycle of progress never stops.

After I get the 2 x 1080s, I'll put the X's on eBay and expect to get very very little for them (especially since they are water cooled and I dont have the OEM air coolers anymore), but I certainly don't regret owning them for almost a year.

Nice but you need better cable management. Get cable combs.

On the plus side, I think it's good we are getting the current flagship card for a "reasonable" 500/600 bucks rather than the 1000+ the original Titan and the 1200 bucks the Titan X costed at launch.

I'm hoping this means nvidia is finished with launching flagships at sky high prices.

It's unlikely. The 1080 is a much smaller die, about half the size of Titan X / 980 Ti. When the big Pascal die is released as a 1080 Ti or Titan they will charge a boatload for it.

Also the 1070 / 1080 actually represent an increase in price over the parts they are replacing, going by the die size 1070 and 1080 are in the same "class" as 970 / 980, and there's about a $50 bump in price over what they launched at.

We used to get the full fat chip for only around $500 (GTX 580 was the last)

I can blow money too...but I prefer to do it 'wisely' -- already owning a Titan-X leads me to believe my money is "best spent" waiting for the next $1000+ flagship card. Plus, my ultimate goal is to be able to game at 4k with one card at acceptable framerates. I gave up on SLI/CF last generation.

Any speculation on when the "1080 Titans" will be released? Clock speed and number of CUDA cores vs vanilla 1080 or 1080Ti?

Right now Q1 2017 is what is being speculated on the release of a Pascal "Titan." Probably a cut-down version of the P100 since NVIDIA said there would be no GeForce version of it, if I remember correctly. I do remember seeing product IDs listed somewhere and it had both GP100 and a never-before-seen GP102 designation. Maybe NVIDIA is going to place the Ti version more in between GP100 and GP104 this time instead of close to Titan, hence the GP102 identifier.

SLI Titan X owner here also. Running on Benq 3201 4k. The games I have that work well with SLI it screams on , but was irritated with things like Fallout 4 and other major titles launching without SLI support. They are in a machine with a 4790k running easily at 4.6 (haven't seen a need to push it more). I honestly replace about once a year , selling my rig outright to a buddy or client who doesn't want to bother building their own.

What I'm wondering is how the upcoming 1080 will perform at 4k solo. I don't to go SLI to SLI , so if it's not a huge bump may wait and see if there's a Titan version or Ti version later on as honestly would like a single card doing 4k easily. Really do love my Titan X's (had the original Titan before that ) , and no real issues other than the games without SLI support.

I think I might just SLI a 980ti with the Titan X. Wait is that even possible? Who's jumping to 1080 with the reviews out?

Not possible. Based on the reviews I'm sticking to my decision of keeping my Titan X until the fat chips come out. An overclocked 980 Ti is just about even with a stock 1080, so an overclocked Titan X is going to be a little faster than that.

After seeing the early results of the 1080 (and definitely is impressive card) it looks like I'll be waiting for the Titan version also. My current Titan X SLI overclocks decently , especially when I push the fan profile up, and I have noticed over the year most charts/comparisons always put the Titan X not overclocked vs Ti's and others OC'd.

Do most Titan X's not overclock well or something ? Just seems like for apples to apples comparison you'd want to test say , OC'd 980ti/1080 vs an OC'd Titan X.

As far as raw clocks go it generally can't clock as well as a 980 Ti, especially if you're comparing against a custom 980 Ti since all Titans X were reference design. I think the main reason being the extra heat put out by having double the RAM chips as the 980 Ti, and it's utilizing space on both sides of the PCB around the core.

IMHO, TitanX needs to be under water for best results. I can bench @1525/8200 in SLI, I generally turn it down to 1475/8200 or so for gaming. But that's still pretty stout, the TX has more CUDA cores than 980Ti as well as more RAM. I also have 980Ti, so it's not like I don't appreciate the 980Ti as well, but TX gets it done.
