Unless I start crapping money ,my rig wont see anything Titan for a LOOOOONG time. $3k is absurd. Maybe that's a good price point for Nvidia...but its not for me. Stick with my cheaper AMD's for now....until I start crapping money that is.

The GTX Titan series is a "prosumer" card through and through.

The GTX 780 Ti is basically the same GPU, just with neutered compute, slightly slower clock, and half the VRAM. And no, you don't need all that VRAM for 4K support, Anandtech's bench shows that a 780 Ti is just slightly slower than a Titan Black on all resolutions.

Can it run Crysis?

I'm sure they'll be flying off store shelves at that price point.

Well, nVidia's $3,000 gpu isn't putting up the numbers to make it competitive with the R9 295x2. At half the price the 295x2 would be a much better deal. Unfortunately neither is going to be found in even the top 1% elite crowd, it's a serious workhorse with serious power meant for supercomputing. And they benchmarked it in gaming tests?! Should've put up some compute scores too.

No one would buy these for gaming, that's just MEAN!

4K monitors demand it unfortunately.

If you really needed this kind of graphics power, why would you choose this card over twin Titan Blacks for a savings of $1000? The SLI Blacks would be considerably faster, and the Z doesn't even save space since it's a triple-slot card with a cooler that requires breathing room.

Heat and power usage, about it. You got less card to run with a single dual gpu. That is literally the only reason though.

Release Day and No reviews? Kind of telling of the story!
I see Nvidia wanting to get (dump) the initial run they've made onto the market and then be done with this with as little fan-fare as possible. That means giving out as few as possible for couple of sympathetic reviewer and sell the rest to hopefully cover a good portion of their costs.

I think I'll stick with my Intel HD4600, thank you very much.

well see if it beats the 295x2 at twice the price.

It didnt before they pulled the original release date,

It probably won't beat it, but I wouldn't be surprised if they break even. Apart from the abysmal price, what impresses me is that they didn't take to potentially hazardous liquid cooling. My gut tells me they didn't have to nerf the GPU's either on this one. We'll see what the benches say.

Could it be attempted and run long term with sealed liquid cooling and a tower full of fans from every angle?
