Default NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN 6GB Performance Review Comment Thread

NVIDIA's new GK110-based GeForce GTX TITAN has taken the PC gaming world by storm but actual benchmarks of its performance against the competition remained elusive. Now, we're finally able to publish our full review and take the lid off of this incredible graphics card's prowess.

Sorry for repeating most of the other day's preview but I wanted to incorporate everything into one article.

Nice review, it does, however, make me certain this card should have been released sooner and at a lower pricepoint. When you factor in how well the 7950 overclocks and how close it gets to 7970 performance overclocked, you have a sub $400 card than can be considered a real alternative to these high priced monsters.

That said, it is truly amazing just how strong that single core is. If I had the $$$ I'd still buy it.

Guys, can you check if you can see the REVIEW on the front page??? For some reason some of my accounts show it while others don't. Just want to ensure everyone can see the new post.

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!

Also, I like your graphs. Especially the Frame Time Testing. It shows that while the GTX690 may have the highest FPS, it delivers less 'clean' frames than Titan.

Good review but...Nah,i was expecting those results,it's more like a a collection video card,if you want better bang for the buck you should buy 690.

The titan is the worst bang for the buck ever made^^

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.
