    Its obvious why - the card does not use a fully enabled chip and we know very well once AMD releases Vega,they will release a Pascal Titan X Mk2 with a fully enabled chip.

    If your able to afford a card like that... you might as well a custom EK GPU Block, and watercool it... then you can stop complaining about cooling holding back the GPU's performance :3

    Nvidia will also probably give them a sweet deal on the incoming 1080Ti chips.

    "Has Nvidia closed the door on AIC partner Titan X graphics cards?"

    Nah. It's just another brand to call upon after milking the present people once the 1080 sales start to fall. They also have the 1080 ti so, yeah, plenty of money to be made yet.

    Nvidia should have stopped being scared and offer a closed loop liquid cooled Titan X just like how AMD did with FuryX...THAT thing runs ice cold at 50 degrees centigrade

    They have stated that they do not allow any partner to sell the Titan X so nothing new here.
    Second you gotta be a idiot to place yourself a waterblock on these cards, because you loose your warranty instant and second i have tried to watercool a few cards which ended in destruction of the card.
    It is a darn risky job if you hit with the copper block any of the parts its over with your card.
    Most people like me are waiting for the better cooled cards, thats why i am still running my old GTX780
    I refuse to buy a card with a insane crappy and loud cooler, my mate has 2 of them and is whining and crying about the noise and constant slowing down cards because they become hot all the time.
    Another point it ofcourse the fact that the real chip is much smaller and that makes it insane hard to cool it well enough. nvidia clearly does not give a darn about that and asks 1300 euro for a crappy card
    Thats why you need AMD to succeed so nvidia is forced to make better products and can not get away with such products. Now they are king and do not care at all

    Has anyone but nVidia ever sold/made "Titan" cards? And if so, were they anything but the reference design? I don't think so.

    "Manufactured Obsolescence" it is called.

    apple do it all the time - example - 1st ipad came out without a camera, but had the internals set up to fit one, while android tablets sold with cameras. Ipad 2 then came out with a camera. So all the people that had the 1st ipad, now wanted the second model. Problem was, it was a low grade camera that relied on good software, so they could easily upgrade the camera in a later model.
    Lots of manufacturers do it all the time to extend a models lifespan or to instigate new sales from a easy upgrade to a model (that would seem obvious to have done at the beginning), all to maintain sales.
    Car manufacturers are another perfect example - they produce a new model, but already have most of the planned model changes organised to appear they are improving all the time. They could have brought out the model with all the upgrades initially, but then have nothing new planned for the rest of the models life.
    One main reason they do this is because it is a easy way to plan on getting a good return for their initial R&D investment. The longer you can sell a particular model without any major changes, the more money you can make. When you do any changes, they are planned for and if done well, don't add much to the initial R&D costs.

    And if uBronan is correct "about the sweet deal i think they are going to charge 1100 euro for the ti if they release it ", that will cost at least $2000 Australian, probably a lot more. This would not surprise me as a standard founders edition (if you can find one - as example some are still listed like the Asus version "This Product is currently unavailable.") is worth well over $1000 Australian.
