"Not quite the equal of the GTX 690, but edging closer at around 80+% of its performance."

 

Good :tongue:

 

Excellent review. I love the OC vs OC results we do, nearly no other sites do the OC'ing side of reviews as well as us and I also love that Frank maxes out the fan speed to get the max overclock.

It seems like the Titan is really only worth it in tri-monitor setups or for the energy conscious.

 

Can't say I agree with an Editors' Choice here.

You can get the weeny out of the war, but you cannot get the war out of the weeny

Rest in peace my good old gtx 480, you deserved it

 

Thinks he has a weeny worthy of war.

Very nice.  But after reading the intro I was really expecting to see a tri-sli attempt at crysis.  Perhaps a little "cost-prohibitive"?  

 

Even with a tri-sli benchmark, I think we would need a dual GTX690 quad-sli setup to compare to  :woot:

I just found the price of the Titan online from a store here in Canada

 

Titian - 1049.99

690 - 1029.99 (on sale reg 1224.19)

 

So for 80% of the performance of a 690. I dont think its worth it at the moment.

 

Thats if i was buying one right now.
