Seriously, I'm bored shitless with all this mediocre crap that these GPU and CPU and ALL hardware companies bullshit us with. We should be further advanced than this. But they only do this for the money. If you have a GTX680 for example... you really have to wait about 5yrs at least to see a jump in performance. The sheer greed and lackluster of these companies is almost Government like. Pisses me off!

Ok hotshot, you try creating a 14nm process you can make GPUs on. And while you are at it, make sure it doesn't use much more power when using all those extra transistors. And then turn around and create a 7nm process.

Moore's law* is dying. It has been decades since adding transistors helped cores on CPUs and it is showing up in GPUs. Only SSDs really benefit from simply increasing transistors

*Moore simply stated the amount of transistors per die doubled, not what it bought you. But there is no reason to rush out and buy another GPU of the same (silicon process) generation (except for SLI) and little reason to buy one after owning one from the previous process.

Did I mention Moore? Nope.
That's ok, you stick to the bull that spews from Nvidia!
Technology isn't as "limited" as you might think. It's limited if you believe what you are being told, and you accept it.. as you hand over your hard earned cash as Nvidia rubs their sticky hands!

Also, thanks for calling me Hotshot! An abundance of gratitude! lmao

Once again, this is why I wait a few months before buying my GPUs. And with this unveiling, the prices of the current EVGA 780 SC/ACX will come a falling into my lap!

Wha? Who here thinks the 780 is trash now? If anything, it's going to be a freaking steal once the 780 Ti is released.

WRONG!! The 780Ti will be priced equivalent to the hierarchy of existing cards. The Titan costs about $1000 right now, and the GTX780 base model goes for about $650. That means the GTX780Ti will be priced at about $750 to $800 range. No, the price of new GTX780s will not drop. That's not to say you will probably find good deals on used GTX780s by owners desparately wanting to incrementally upgrade to the GTX780Ti. But, is a 10-15% performance improvement really worth the extra $100-150 upgrade from the GTX780 to GTX780Ti? IMHO, no it's not worth it! If you already own one or more GTX780s, it would be a much better investment to wait for the next-generation NVidia Maxwell GPU family that will arrive next Spring.

when is the last time nvidia or ANY nvidia card company has actually lowered the price of a geforce gtx card?

hasn't happend with the 660, 660ti. 670, 680.... nor with the 7 series , 780 or titan.

get real dude.

no company will lower prices when new cards come out. they keep the same price, retailers keep the same price and they try to make some money.

show me or cite a single example of any nvidia card's price being lowered in 2012-2013 after a new release...

i picked up a pair of GTX 680 back in the spring for $320 a pop (after rebate) from Newegg. they were $550 when they came out.

just sayin'

You apparently missed the last many months worth of news.

If ANY card company kept their current prices the same, they wouldn't be able to move current stock for the newer items coming out. So naturally, they have to lower prices to make room and to move inventory. And when AMD undercuts Nvidia, Nvidia does what it can to stay competitive. I thought any reader on this site would understand basic economics, as well as supply and demand tactics of retailers. But I guess I was wrong.

http://www.maximumpc.com/nvidia_lowers_price_select_geforce_gtx_graphics_cards2013

One of the most volatile markets in PC are the GPUs. New technology demands that prior technology must be moved to make room for the new in demand items of the day. Just as the Titan was the King of the Hill, it too, will come at a lower price point to move inventory for the new card that replaces it.

Now, that doesn't mean the Titan (or any other card out there) would then be worthless, because it cost less than it did at it's release, not by a long shot. But if you think it will still be sold at the same price point as it did at it's release, you're smoking something really good.

"no company will lower prices when new cards come out. they keep the same price, retailers keep the same price and they try to make some money."

The prices of AMD 7000 series dropped this past week by 10% - 20% (some even more), depending on the level of the card. Just sayin'.

I wouldn't be surprised if either Intel or AMD acquired nVidia...

avatar

wumpus

I'd be shocked silly if AMD could afford a Subway franchise, let alone what is already on their plate. Intel could very well be trying to stack the regulators with friends to buy nVidia.

So someone buys a $1000 Titan 4 months ago or whatever and there is already something that kicks it's ass (or supposedly)? I realize they can't just sit idle on product releases but jeeze... The people crazy enough to have spent 1K on a Titan 4 months ago for bragging rights had very little time in the sun.

avatar

Ninjawithagun

...actually, the Titan was released in February of this year, which means it has been out for 8 months. But, regardless of this fact you still make a very good point. Upgrading is something that is no longer every two to three year thing. I thought that upgrading every year was bad enough. Now it seems something newer and better is getting released every four to 6 months - CRAZY!!

borkbork

People who drop $1k on a video card probably aren't doing it because they think it's a sound financial investment. =P

avatar

jgottberg

@BorkBork - This is very true :)

limitbreaker

Actually I feel a bit screwed, I bought the marginally sensible gtx 780 on release which costed me 715$ and it'll already be a second class citizen (or third class if you count titan) :-( after only a few months. It's too soon for a price drop but it'll happen, i was planning to wait a year to go SLI but depending on the price drop i may do it a bit sooner.

avatar

jgottberg

@Limitbreaker - Well, I give you credit for taking the dive. I guess if I dropped that kinda loot, I would stop paying attention to prices like I did with my house. Once I bought it, I stopped looking because I knew I'd see something else that might have been better or less expensive. lol

An SLI setup with your card would kick some ass

Welcome to the world of technological advancement.

Nimrod

???????????????????????? Do you have any idea how OLD Titan already is? Obviously any time there is a price drop some one might have paid fill price for it a bit ago. Your logic....isnt logical

avatar

Without any specs or pricing this is just a paper jab at AMD for showing up at their event.

avatar

Zstreek

Just because it says "ti" doesn't mean it won't be faster than a Titan. I think the reason they aren't saying anything about it is because they may not have fully decided how powerful it will be. Maybe AMD has pushed them enough to really kick things up a notch. We can only hope.

avatar

HiGHRoLLeR038

how dumb. the 780 already performs very close to the titan.

avatar

JimmyD1964

I thought it was a competitive market?
If you have something to show...show it. AMD did just that. If AMD was afraid, they wouldn't have showed up now would they?
I wouldn't care if they were on the same table. Who beat who? Buy it.
Getting all butt-hurt because your competitor shows up? Kind of insecure of NVidia.
My question is, why didn't NVidia boost the first model? Holding back on your customers? I think now AMD will boost the R9 cards LoL.

I think I'm in love!

I love it. AMD puts out two scores for AMD optimized games that barely beat the 780 and Nvidia swings back with a card to one up AMD. Nvidia is just laughing at them. AMD is such a joke. I wish they would actually put out a good line of cards so Nvidia had a reason to release Maxwell which is essentially just sitting on the shelf waiting for competition.

"for AMD optimized games that barely beat the 780"

Barely? Really dude, really?

http://videocardz.com/46929/official-amd-radeon-r9-290x-2160p-performance-17-games

While it's still not official, what I'm hearing from people the benchmarking the 290X, it's faster than a Titan too.

Remember that GK110 only has one SMX left that can be used. So even IF the 780Ti has all 15 running....it will only match the 290X. Nvidia isn't laughing at anyone right now. Actually the 780Ti just screams "knee-jerk reaction" to the 290X.

avatar

blackdog

Your name suits you, enough said!!!!

avatar

AFDozerman

They aren't laughing in the least bit. This 780ti is probably going to be just slightly faster than the 290x, leaving AMD plenty of room to produce a 290x boost. Then what? A Titan Ultra? For what, 1500 dollars?

avatar

Nimrod

Not to mention the 780 will be more expensive. Also, AMD has already said they are preparing a 6GB 290x that wont be ava at release. Im waiting for the 6GB version.

avatar

Carlidan

OMFG where have you been Nimrod. Glad to see you. I'm waiting to see how much the 290 one is. 290x is too expensive for me.

avatar

Nimrod

lol ive been around. I hope the 6gig version isnt to pricy.

avatar

AFDozerman

A 6gig 290X would be amazing for largescale GPGPU renders with luxrender. My mouth is already watering.

avatar

Nimrod

I edit a little bit of 4k video and am wondering what it will do for that in addition to 4k gaming.

avatar

AFDozerman

I guess it depends on what software you use...

Those five teraflops would turn something like Vreveal into superman.

Jonnycal13

AMD is coming back strong! I'm glad for this. It looked hopeless after the release of the Titan. I couldn't imagine a card coming out so soon that competes on that level. This is all good for gamers!

avatar

PCWolf

You better give AMD some love! If it was not for AMD, there would be no Titan or anything near it! Nvidia has proven in the Past that they get LAZY & WORTHLESS when they have no competition. & I would bet good money that without AMD to push them along, the best Card we would have now would be the GTX 500 series starting at $350.

avatar

Baer

I agree, while I am not an AMD fan (driver issues) we need the competition,

avatar

bluetorino1973

I have had more issues with Nvidia driver than AMD. I rin a HD7950 now and when I had a GTX580 there was nothing but driver issues with the 580 and this isn't the first Nvidia card that I have had trouble with either running to hot or driver problems. So far with AMD/ATI cards I have run into fewer problems than Nvidia.

avatar

Narq

This but opposite- no problems with Nvidia. AMD nothing but headaches.

Led Weappelin

It's beautiful. Guess that's all one can say at this point. What do ya guess the price is for this beauty? $799.00 maybe?
