Well, that answers what kind of GPU is needed to run a game on a 4K monitor. A very expensive one. Going to have tons of compute power too.

I wonder if I can play world of warplanes 1080p at highest settings possible with max AA and AS

Is that meant to be sarcasm?? I'm pretty sure a 750ti would easily do that. The engine War Gaming uses isn't exactly demanding.

Run 2 of these in one system? I have 2 words for you, Dream Machine. I'm just waiting for someone to ask if it can run Crysis..... nevermind.

I needed this, my minesweeper was running kind of slow

Meh, it's just a headline grabber. No one would bother buying this.

Also known as the unobtainable :P

I hope that no one gets too excited about the 5K video.

Bad typo is bad.

Actually, that's not a typo. Nvidia's looking past today's 4K capabilities and is claiming the Titan Z can power "next-generation 5K and multi-monitor gaming."

Ah....my mistake.

Well erm.....that's insane.

It seems as though the industry won't stop till they reach cell phone PPI
levels.

I thought 4K was overkill, with the exception of really big TVs and monitors.

A few of the new phones coming out have 4k 5 inch screens. So the PPI bar just keeps moving.

I'm looking forward to 4k, but I think graphics performance will be a bigger bottleneck than panel availability.

OK - my turn for the obligatory, "but will it run Crysis?" :p

Yes, it'll run 10 of them at once.

The joke's gotten stale since 2010.

That joke was stale in 2007. Can I have my cake now?

The Titan Black is $1000 dollars. This new card is running two Titan Black GPU's with included memory. Where did the extra 1000 come from? I just don't know if I could justify that price.

From what I found, Titan is basically a 780 without crippled compute performance. Which most games don't need yet.

So unless you're running a compute farm, stick with the more affordable 780.

In addition to the full FP64 compute performance, the original Titan had 2688 Stream Processors while the 780 has 2304, and not to forget the 6GB frame buffer for the Titan. Titan Black has all 2880 SPs.

These are Titan Blacks. 780TI gaming performance, quite a bit better than the 780. But the 780 DOES have a much better price/performance ratio.

Wonder if we'll see a Z Kai version that's a bit cheaper.

Eh? Eh?

I didn't think that Kai made it cheaper, just that it cut out all the filler.
