NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN why?
By Ammohunt on 2/19/2013 10:44:03 AM , Rating: 0
The way i see it Nvidia has a problem with the desktop graphics market. Its to the point where 3D engines are optimized to look great on what is considered mediocre GPU hardware and a ~$150 card is more than enough to run most games on at highest quality settings with the over powered CPU's we enjoy. I haven't found a single reason to upgrade from my GTX 460 that i spent $150 on two years ago it churns through every new game i have thrown at it Arma 2, Borderlands 2, Rift at decent frame rates. Those that can afford a $999 desktop video card don't represent a growth market or a huge source of revenue.

You're not exactly playing games that require the latest and greatest GPUs. Also in question is what resolution you play at.

I don't see the issue. For NVIDIA it's both a halo product and an outlet for Tesla K20x chips that didn't meet strict heat / leakage specifications or had defects running full speed FP calculations.

I have a 680 GTX and find it lacking. Some people are happy to play at 30fps on medium textures, I'm not one of them. I prefer to bump everything up to max, and install extra visual mods game permitting. I also prefer to run at close to 100-120fps as possible. I'm just trying to do this on one monitor at 1080p and the 680 struggles. The users using dual or triple monitor setups...and I believe this is an increasing number, will need even more horsepower.

Not many gamers have 120Hz monitors. But even at 60fps, there are games that still require a powerful card.

Try Crysis 3 when it comes out. If the specifications I've seen are correct on the PC it's DX11 only (no pandering to DX9 XP cavemen - yay!) and recommended RAM is 8GB, which might indicate they've put some effort into a proper 64-bit version too.

Crysis 3 is out in USA. It runs fine on GTX 560 Ti, 1920x1200, granted not everything maxed but almost (rest of hardware, i7-2700K, 8GB RAM, Win 7 64-bit, installed on Samsung 830 SSD).
I don't see a point spending a grand for upgrade. I also played Far Cry 3 which is graphic heavy and no problems as well.

680/7970 struggle with the newest games at 1080p 2xAA highest settings. 1440p? SLi or Titan. Actually, then you'd want to SLi Titan.
