    Not should be, of course they can. Titans cost nowhere near the price they were on release to produce. In fact, Titans would have had a similar BOM to the GTX 580 when it was release. Not the same, but still largely similar, so of course they *could* do it for under £1000, but nVidia have doubled the price you pay per mm² of GPU since the Fermi days., so whilst they can do it, there's no chance they will do it.

    You have to say it, props to AMD if this is true. Stole the thunder of the TitanZ and took a dump on Jen Hsun Huang's face at the same time. Especially when you look back to the TitanZ keynote.

    I get the impression he may secretly like that.

    Yes the ati is cheaper (ati's main selling point is price/performance) and yes the titan z is a pretty silly price mainly because you could buy 2 full fat titan black's and some after market coolers for that price and wipe the floor with anything... ;)

    ATi haven't made a graphics card in a long time, so of course the Titan Z would wipe the floor with anything from ATi.

    Considering a 295x2 is faster than 780TI SLI id say a couple of titan blacks would be a good match for it at stock anyway. Trouble is they will never be able to keep the price down that way. I think Kaap might be right, expect 2x780TI's on a single pcb with a 3gb frame buffer. Keep the cost down, bump the clocks to equal or beat the 295x2 and bobs your uncle. Will they be able to keep temps in check though with an air cooler? That's their main problem i expect.

    What Meme/Pic is that? :p

    :eek:

    DUM DUM DUM!

    **** just got interesting. What's the launch price Gibbo?

    To be honest this isn't actually surprising seeing as it was all set for a launch and they delayed it at the last minute.
    Of course they could still cancel but if the retailers have the cards I cannot see it happening.

    I'm siding with Gibbo, but why are they keeping quiet about it? :confused:

    If they cancel it really then the cards don't exist and to save u headaches with cards that shouldn't exists at a stock take i am willing to take them off your hands at no cost to myself it will only cost u postage for such a easy way out :)

    The GTX680, it came in at the same pricing as the 7950, and at the time was neck and neck with the 7970 overall, some games with a 7970 win, others with a 680.

    That's what it sounds like. If Gibbo has stock then surely it can't be cancelled though. I bet Gibbo won't come back in the thread now either. :p

    Pretty sure 7950 was £330-£370 while the GTX680 was £380-£420+...

    Give 8 Pack a couple, we need benches and we need them fast.:D

    Does 8 Pack know what a 4K monitor is as a matter of interest ?

    :D

    This sounds about right

    I paid £400+ for my 680 at launch

    Well, logically speaking if the card has GPU's with the same TDP as the ones on the HD7990, and a better cooler than the HD7990 the shouldn't be an issue no?


    They would have known well in advance. The 295X2 uses an Asetek cooler based on the design originally used on the ASUS ARES HD7990. Considering the amount of non AMD lips that would have had to stay sealed for Nvidia not to know it's just not feasible.
