Nvidia Gtx Titan

Anyone thinking of plopping $1000 dollars down for this card?

I love the way technology is moving - I'd buy one of these when it's tried and tested - and perhaps bit cheaper.

ya it was... given that we have yet to see any OEM variants on the Titan still kinda has the price point a little mysterious.

honestly, this is nvidias throw back to AMD... you know, the usual mines bigger than yours competition. i'm sure once the OEMs get their products out and AMD has their variant, the prices will go down and we'll be singing the next devices' praises.

for the price, a bit of a disappointment for gamers for sure... compute nuts will go gaga over it though.

I'ld rather take the ca$h and buy a professional card for that price... but damn, 6GB would be nice.

I intend to buy one second hand.

Do you guys know if Maya2013 viewport and Vray 2.3 RT can take advantage of the Dual GPU in GTX690, else, i'm going for the Titan.

Their both going for sale online and well, 6GB does sound decent. Any advice?

second hand card taht is just out, could be a bit hard
in any case none of the applications uses dual GPU nor SLI/Crossfire so..
also if you don't need CUDA ati would be better option for pure viewport performance
both price and performance calculated in.

Maya will not see the second GPU so you'll only be using a single GPU on any dual GPU cards in Maya. All 3D applications I am aware of have this limitation. Can't speak to Vray RT though.

I think he means second hand just as a second card, not a used card.
