NVIDIA Titan video cards Feb 18th, large wallet needed - February 15, 2013, 05:33 PM


Nvidia is releasing some of the flagship Titan video cards on Feb 18th, said to be 55-60% faster than a GTX 680 and AMD 7970. They are supposed to have 6GB of VRAM which is an insane amount of RAM for a card. But since 1440p resolutions are becoming more popular it's going to have to happen. They will sport a 384bit bus, up from the smaller 256 bit bus on the current 6xx series cards.



source NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan To Be Released on February 18th | VideoCardz.com

My personal guess is that these cards will exceed $1000 initially (maybe $1200 each), whereas most come in around 899 (gtx 690's) and receive a price gouge by newegg and retailers. I think based on the performance these will easily be over $1000 without a gouging. Now we just need to see AMD's offering to compete against this baby.

$1,000 - $1,200? In the words of Old Dirty Bastard:
"Get the fuck outta here!"

Also, I have never, to my knowledge, seen anything in 1440p resolution. I'm going to go out on a limb and say there is a certain point where the human eye cannot detect any greater clarity or detail at normal viewing distances. I believe, for the most part, 1080p has achieved this.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

The only place i've seen 1440p is on computer monitors in the 27" range. They are super crisp and they are generally very wonderful to look at. If you take a 1080 resolution and span it over 27" compared to a 27" 1440p you won't want the 1080. Too bad the darn 1440p screens are too expensive. Most of the ones i've seen are 700+ for a decent name brand one. I know Vizio makes a 2560x1080 screen but that's just a wide format screen.

Been expecting these for awhile now (my brother in-law is a PM at nvidia).

AMD cards may have the power to compete but they have always been behind when it comes to drivers.

I used to always have a beast mode gaming PC, then I became a father. Now I stay a gen or two behind and it saves me lots of cash

One of these days, I'm gonna go all out again on one. Nice thing is, when stuff like this comes out, folks sell their older cards cheap. Time to start watching eBay again.

yesss, actually there are a TON of people planning on selling off their GTX 680's from another forum I go on. They all want Titan badly, try checking overclock.net as well and you'll probably catch some.

I will stick with my dual 680's until they die. I don't see any reason to drop 1k on a new card. If I start to get choppy frame rates then fine - I will get something else but for now 2 680's run Nvidia Surround extremely well.

I remember dropping $400 on a 4GB hard drive.

I also remember taking rank in CAL for CS. I miss those days.
