I have been using some different frametime applications and I have a lot to say about them. For now, I will keep it short.

Frame times don't exactly matter if they are high and even, frame consistency matters a lot more, and even if sli or crossfire gives you lower frame times, it does not give you more even frames.

Even frames - I am starting to believe. IS performance.

That's scary, considering it's not even taking into account crossfire issues.

Depends on the price. If i can sell my 670's and only have to spend ~100 ~150, then that's great.

If it's $900 then I'm buying at least 2 of them. If it's more...I'll put up with my lowly 680 classified's for the foreseeable future. :P

I'll take a 42% framerate hit for a 52% frame perception hike.

The thing that's probably going to stop me purchasing one of these cards is the huge markups that will happen australia side, and the lack of availability will prevent me from purchasing overseas. Then, finally - the lack of quantity will mean that it's sold out before I find a means of affording one.

Would you still get it if the rumours are true about it being $1200?

Holy shit ... probably NOT then.
If those pics are of the actual card being released, it amazes me how the High end (GTX690/Titan) cards don't come with a backplate.
You'd think for cards in that price range the finishing touches would be important?

$900, or pretty much anything under $1000 Im buying one. Nearly 100% certain.

$1200.. No. I really dont care about the extra few $$$ as much as I just cant justify spending that amount on a video card. It exceeds the level of indulgence that I am willing to allow myself.

Agree with you and sneaky. Not going to happen at 1200.

Exact same boat here. I'd love to go 2-card SLI with the Titan. But not at more than $1000/card. Still waiting for tomorrow morning to see actual benchmark results.

Honestly, I don't think it will be more than $1000/card.

And if you guys pay for the shipping to AUS, I'll get one or two for you. Just PM or Steam or Origin me.

Do you have a connection where you are getting all these Titans. I would be surprised if we are able to get one, and only the truly lucky people will be able to get 2.

Possibly.
