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 bought one of those 27" korean monitors 2560x1440 on ebay for like $300 (included 2 day DHL shipping) and it was one of the best purchases I have ever made. Seriously the thing kicks ass, no idea why you all wouldn't jump- Had it over 6 months now, I guess time will tell if it holds up.

So yeah, not saying this gfx card is needed, but at those resolutions and my love of single gpu gaming(tried SLI on two occasions in the past and will never go back) I welcome high end cards.

(I currently have a gtx 570 and the 1.2gb of ram is probably on the limit considering my resolution)

Hello there fellow 27" korean monitor owner, I too think this was the most kick ass upgrade I made last year. I spend a little over $300 for a "pixel perfect" one - some say it doesn't matter and it's just luck of the draw but it ended up being 100% pixel perfect.

They're not for everyone though, the screen glare needs to be offset by proper lighting in your room, warranty support is not going to happen due to expensive shipping - if your monitor arrives DOA it's an instant $100 shipping bill to send it back. You have to navigate a bunch of ebay sellers and do a bunch of research on who to buy from, bought mine from "red cap".

As for this graphics card, if it boosted rendering performance for 3D programs like Max, Maya, Modo greatly then it could be an asset to people outside of gaming. Ability to render out complex video scenes from After Effects realtime?

For gaming there is the Oculus Rift headset which the developers say they need solid 60 frames per second for fluid feedback. If they get the 1080p screen in the retail version then needing a super-high performing graphics card might be needed.

monitors with missing settings menus

The lack of an on board hardware scaler (you let your graphics card do the scaling work) and no on screen menu is a good thing as you get a monitor with a faster response time. It also means that you can't effectively use these monitors in a single display setup, you'll need another monitor that does have hardware scaler to see your bios setup information.

They're not in the same league as a Dell, but then you're not paying $1000 for one either. The lack of anti-glare coating is a plus now that I've experienced the clarity of a screen without it. It's dependent on how you have your monitor setup with regards to natural light from windows of course.
