GeForce GTX TITAN Announced

NVIDIA announces the GeForce GTX TITAN, saying their new graphics card can make your PC a "gaming supercomputer" in the vein of The World's #1 Open Science Supercomputer. Word is: "Despite being ten times more powerful than its predecessor, the Titan supercomputer takes up the same amount of space and uses the same amount of power. Only GTX TITAN brings this rare combination of raw power and incredible efficiency to PC gaming." There are p/reviews of the new card on AnandTech, Guru3D, Hardware Canucks, Hardware Heaven, Legit Reviews, and Overclockers Club.

I remember people saying the same thing back in '98.

I went SLI in the spring of 2008. I'm not an early adopter type, I wait until a technology is fairly mature. That being said, there were still a lot of issues - lack of features (multi-monitor settings), and some compatibility/stability problems. It took about 18 months before the majority of these were ironed out, and by the time I got my second set of cards in Dec 2010 it was pretty much perfect with very early driver/profile releases.

Performance was always pretty good, but there's no doubt in my mind that I went from an average of 60% to about 80% scaling over that time period, and I see as high as 90%+ in optimized titles (which are usually multi-platform/non-port like Skyrim, or PC-intended titles). NVIDIA really got their act together during that time frame for a variety of reasons.

AMD's Eyefinity/Crossfire does have some advantages but Nvidia is smooth for the "average" gamer - which actually I consider myself: these 2 cards were $320 total in Dec 2010 and outpace a stock 670 on most major titles. That's a really stellar value and it's by no means out of reach of many PC gamers price-wise; you can power it with 650W in many cases.
