I will be more blunt (IMO of course). Its a ripoff at that price. Premium or not.
A couple things...GTX 690 is limited by a quad SLI (2 cards)
the TITAN can 3-way SLI, which basically will blow those records completely out of the water. awesome.
allow me to give an alternative view.
Yes, if you have $1000 bucks, buying GTX 690, might be better.
but with the Titan, you are also paying for the potential 3-way SLI set up, which the GTX 690 is limited at quad.
for $3000 bucks, you are buying 'unparallel' performance.
and a $3000 bucks investment in GTX 690, will not give you more than quad-sli from the $2000 set up...
so I believe it for the price.
A couple things...
1. 'Limited' at quad... more is a limit?
2. You cant use 3 690's in the first place in SLI, so you are actually comparing quad SLI at $2k vs Tri SLI at $3k+. I would imagine the Titan would win there, but by 50% more to match the price? No? Than still waaay too expensive.
I see your point, and you are right for the 20 people that would do that.
Limited by card max at quad, can't get a 3rd GTX 690 to do anything extra on top of quad. that's what I mean.
that's what I mean.
and yes, limited market for sure.
especially since a little worse than GTX 690.
I think I will be one of the 20 !! I am drooling already.
I think my next build's name will be ' Titanium '
Rather, the $1000 entry cost puts the GeForce TITAN firmly into the realm of exclusivity and is for people who can afford to pay through the nose for performance. This is an aspirational item like a Ferrari or Lamborghini and isn’t marketed to the people who buy Fords, Chevys and Kias.
