And, I don't think so. Rather, it's exactly where I expected it to be, given it's raw specs. Midway between a GTX680 and a GTX690 is nothing to sneeze at, especially when you consider that it's a single GPU card. Is the $1000 price tag justified? Probably not. It has $700-$800 worth of performance, at best. BUT, Nvidia is performing in a niche here, and they're the only player. So they can effectively charge what they want. And lots of people will pay to have the name 'Titan' in their system.

And to think that this was originally slated to become the original GTX680. My God!
I see where you're coming from, but from the review it looks like if you have a 680 under water you can overclock it to near titan speeds for half the price.
