A magazine's "Cover Date" as it is called is actually the shelf-life of the magazine, sort of like the expiration date on milk and other perishable products.

At -about- the time the actual month/date on the magazine arrives, it will be replaced by a vendor like Prologix.

I bought a titan so I don't have to deal with SLI crap. the titan is smoother and works with games better.

it also pwns in 3d studio max rendering with iray , maya and most other computation task

You see I ray can not use all the vram in a sli config and if it does not fit in vram it will not render.

so the 690 is useless in 3d studio max and sli is way more buggy and does not run as smooth as a single GPU.

this card is a cheep Tesla card and worth $1000 it is the best non workstation card and that is what a lot of people do with it not games.

There are several articles on the net right now showing that the 7970 is still faster in compute.

There's an article on Tom's hardware proving that the titan doesn't have the proper driver support for workstation tasks http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-titan-opencl-cuda-workstation,3474.html
You'd be better off with the 4gB 680 or better yet, the 7970.

This was taken from June 2013 of the mag? Back to the future? or am i missing something?

Magazine subscribers get all the fresh content, then we put it up online after about six months so the rest of the folks can read it.

6 months? The june mag is current. Your comment makes no sense.

I think MPC is trying a new strategy by posting old mag articles on the blog after a few months. I kind of like it. I had forgotten about this particular article so it's a nice reminder.

yeah but how can it be "Note: This review was taken from the June 2013 issue of the magazine." June is not for another 30 days

As such, a "May" magazine actually comes out in early April or even late March. In this case, a June magazine is of course going to be shelved during May.

The June issue came out in late March I believe. All print mags actually come out a few months before their pub date.

I just got my June issue last week, or early this week. Usually print is one month ahead, it is very rare to have it more than a month ahead. Catalogs are really the only print that run for months, but even then they are distributed one month in advance. It has been awhile since I worked in the periodical industry though, but that is the norm.

Ive had my june for a couple weeks. Ive been a subscriber since they changed from boot. Perhaps thats the difference?

(i was a windows magazine subscriber before that, when it died they converted me to maxpc - so much better)
