So, this technically has been out for 3 years, but we are just now getting the full power of it? Thanks for holding back advancement Nvidia. Ya, ya I know they didn't have competition and figured they would suck us dry. I understand that, and thats why I'm starting to root for AMD. Give us your best now, not when you feel like you can suck us dry.

This card sounds awesome, and I am an NVidia fan however the price point for top of the line cards in the last few years is OBSCENE, and quite excessive, I bought a top of the line GTX 580 several years back and it cost 500 not 1000. In my humble opinion if products were priced similar to a few years ago, you would be able to generate even more revenue by moving more units. :(

I get tired of Nvidia's constant one-upmanship of their "top of the line" products. They have a bad habit of releasing "new" top-of-the-line products that are just slightly-less-gimped versions of what were previously the "top of the line" products.

I feel this same way. Not that I am interested in a Titan but I do like the GTX 750 Ti for a SFF build but am afraid in a few months a GTX 750 Ti BOOST will be available. Here is how the GTX 650 played out..

September 13, 2012, GTX 650 was officially announced
October 9, 2012, GTX 650 Ti was officially announced
March 26, 2013, GTX 650 Ti BOOST was officially announced

The GTX 750 Ti has 15 watts additional it could get from PCIe without a BOOST version needing a 6 pin plug. So I can't believe nVidia won't release a higher performing GTX 750 version that will max out the PCIe voltage, or even require the need of a 6 pin plug.

Am I the only one that gets slighly aroused whenever a product have "Black" in the name. "AMG Black Series" anyone?

At this point though I'm holding out for Maxwell. My 680's still are able to keep up with what I throw at them.

Damn...another 1K grafx card. I dont think I will ever spend that much on a card. I will wait for the 800 series Maxwell cards.

Im in the same boat.. its not that I wouldn't want one. I just can't justify it. My sli 580's are still kicking decently so I have been waiting for maxwell to upgrade.

I am a bit bothered with the way Nvidia has been doing things recently. 780 -> 780ti.. why can't they just come out of the gate swinging with what was the 780ti and call it a 780?! Im worried I will get an 880 only to find out I made a mistake a few months later. Get your yields right before you goto mass manufacturing and stop screwing your customers with subpar product. I understand they work just fine, but in the end its just that their manufacturing wasn't up to snuff yet and they wanted to sell the chips anyways, so they disable parts of the silicon and package it up. Maybe it's just me, but I don't like it.

They have to leave enough headroom to respond to market changes.

The 780ti was in response to the 290x beating the regular 780 for $150 cheaper.

If they just release the ti as a 780, they would not have had a product to respond with.

they wouldnt need to respond...dont you see that? their only response would need to be lowering the price on their product....this is just stringing along consumers with the "next best thing" when they could just come out with the BEST and not be beaten by anything....their only reason for this is because they couldnt maximize their product fast enough and they want to catch a few spend happy idiots who get a 780....then sell it used and buy a 780ti as soon as that comes out because they HAVE to have the best....its bs for the rest of us who just want to make the best choice for the future...

Thats not really how strategic market planning works.

You need a fall back.

Their "marketing strategy" is starting to make their customers angry. They are using it as a way to jack up the prices on cards. All these 780, 780ti, titans.. they all use the same chip. So other than the models with more ram they do not cost nvidia much more(if any) to build. Yet they are 100's of $$'s difference in price.

Obviously I don't have to have the latest and greatest as I'm still rocking 580's. I will buy whatever the $500-600 maxwell card is and then a year or 2 later I will grab another used one for $300-400 and I will be golden for a few years. Just as I have been with my 580's.

I just think Nvidia needs to watch themselves. It's obvious from posts all over different tech sites that their market strategy is making people upset. With AMD popping out cheaper cards that do practically as well as the Nvidia counterpart and their driver support seems to be getting better from what I have gathered. They are beginning to look like an "worth it" alternative to some when it comes to price vs performance.
