    Hmm, the overclocked result is more where I expected things from stock. Room for a higher clocked 980ti indeed - or room for a driver 'improvement' once the competition comes out? Good efficiency though.

    Where's the 295x2?

    It comprehensively outperforms the titan X, but kind of a different category of card (even though it's cheaper).

    Re: Reviews - Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB

    with a listed US price of $999 (yeah that $1 really makes a difference lol) we might as well say this is going to be £1000 in the UK....

    For my own personal usage scenario (3D rendering etc), seeing as it's literally just a larger ram and cuda core count 980 I might as well wait for a '8GB 980' and buy 2, it will likely work out about the same price but ram allowing be faster due to more cores.

    They've actually removed the one thing that made the titan worth the money, the double floating point is now no different than the gaming cards... now the cynic in me says it's to sell more quadro's at stupidly high markup prices when it's basically the exact same core without the extra laser cuts rather than the 'it was too big' excuse being bandied about.

    Having seen the release I am now actually thinking about whether it would be better to look at ati and change my gpu render of choice.... although I must admit I've had better experiences with nvidia than ati. Oh well I've got time to think it over.

    uber bleeding edge - like the *not even pretending to be a compute* titan x......


    so yes , since the Tian X is the flagship - the R9 295X2 is the flagship

    Re: Reviews - Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB

    With the overclock applied in the review it seems to be faster than the 295x2 - slightly behind in firestrike, but it's comfortably ahead in total war. Sadly there aren't many games common to both reviews (and I'm getting UHD firestrike results from the head-to-head with the gigabyte waterforce)

    Re: Reviews - Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB

    So they include backplates on reference 980/970 but not the Titan X? That does not make a lick of sense. IMO any card over £350 should include a backplate, this just takes the biscuit.

    Why? What actual benefit is a backplate? Surely better to spend the money on a better chip/ram?

    Reading elsewhere that the M6000 is also 1/32 for FP64, it's a GM200 limitation not artificial market positioning. It seems that Nvidia saw more advantage in using the die space that the additional FP64 hardware would have taken up to instead boost FP32 performance further by increasing the core count.

    Constrained by having to remain on the 28nm node it becomes an either/or option for the die size. GK110/GK210 will still be available for those in need of higher FP64 performance.

    But spending £1000 (rough price of Titan X) does not warrant a backplate? Sure its for aesthetic purposes but your dropping a grand on a graphics card, it should be mandatory from my perspective. Its hardly going to put them in the red if they have to put backplates on their cards.

    Did the original titan have a backplate?

    12GB of GDDR5, this is where all the missing 0.5GBs from the gtx970 went to.

    Re: Reviews - Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB

    if the numbers are correct the die size is 632mm2 - a hair under TSMC fabrication limit of 650mm2 ; so this is full fat and one reason why its (and the M6000 will be) not good for compute, they simply couldn't bolt it on and give it the extra modules.

    even the NVidia PR bloke said get the original titan for DP work on the pcper video.

    any GTX 980ti will be 6gb version of this

    Re: Reviews - Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB

    Finally we have a card which is a good chunk faster than a 780ti / 290x but at close to £1000 (once UK "inflation" is taken into account) you can certainly count me out.

    But on a technical level I'm impressed, if you had told me we would have this performance on 28nm when the 7970 was launched I would never have believed you. Although I never would have believed we would still be on 28nm in 2015.

    Now the wait for the response, in your own time AMD.
