From the article:

Since this launch is happening at the tail end of the Chinese New Year, expect some slight delays in regards to retail availability. And we do mean slight since TITAN card should be available to purchase during the week of February 25th with some system builders potentially having cards sooner than that.

I was joking. I saw you had two 680's SLi'd. I assume the Titan would be faster than that. I have no idea how much GPU it would take to make a 3770K sweat.

At that price point, I'd seriously wonder if it's worth it over the 690, considering that on paper and SLI issues notwithstanding, it's going to be a slower card. I don't think enthusiasts are dumb people, either.

I don't thinnkkkk 6 gigs of VRAM is really necessary?

Can't wait to see this OC... on the RRP.. think they are off the mark here as I can get 690 for $899, they should have started it a bit lower.

Dear god I'd be sooo tempted if it was just a bit cheaper... Even cut it to 3 - 4GB, would be enough and give some more lee-way to the budget. Wonder if any board partner will do this?
2 X 670 price I would have jumped on it. Thats assuming 2 670's are the same performance.

Really like the look of the monitor oc.. would love it if you could do a test on some of the popular panels (U2713, samsung etc)

6gb of VRAM
Also since you over volt the titan this would almost certainly be one sweet card to slap a full cover block on.
