    Preorders for Titan are available at a lot of the big uk retailers now; Scan, Overclockers, Dabs, Novatech and Ebuyer.

    Still a ridiculous price, £840 seems so much like a bad move from nvidia. If it was even $100/£100 cheaper it would put a major crimp on the style of the "unofficial" 7990 cards.

    yes indeedy. certainly no reason to rush out and preorder one of these. at this price there are going to be plenty available for the forseeable future.

    behold the most marked up video card ever released, obviously from nvidia

    prefer to wait for the price slashing to begin on these cards, they wont be able to hold this price on the market, their performance doesn't come near to justifying it

    Although this card reclaims the single-GPU graphics crown,. the primary target market for this card is not consumer graphics, but compute-hungry developers, students and researchers on a tight budget. Also professional desktop video production, taking advantage of the
    massive GPU-compute capability.. a cost/performance sweet-spot. nVidia has a winner here in a previously cost-restricted market. The lowest-cost Tesla is 3x the price. Also, the card is supported with CUDA updates and mature Linux drivers previously honed on Fermi and others in the Kepler series.

    I guess a week or so delay doesn't count as a real soft launch, and it gives people time to speak with their bank about financing. Reply

    They finally go back to having a card that is a step up from the GTX 580 in number crunching after they stripped this out of the GTX 680 for their pocket books and now want to charge us $1000 for it? I think it is time to boycott Nvidia cards until they stop giving the customer the shaft in favor of their pocket books. Reply

    Blame AMD. They didn't show up to the fight. It becomes clear that nVidia really, really needs competition in order to maintain reasonable pricing.

    And to be fair, I think reasonable pricing on this card is $700-$800. Still, it's not meant for most people to buy. It's there to make every other product look more affordable and sane.

    Oh, please. It's AMD's fault that Nvidia is greedy? Nobody put a gun to Jen-Hsun Huang's head and forced Nvidia to charge $1,000 for their latest GeForce card. Nvidia has ALWAYS been the one to put out the highest price cards. If they wanted to, they could have charged $700 for it. But they chose not to.

    Nvidia is the one who set the price of the Titan. Not AMD.

    All you crybabies should check the usual and the latest nVidia profits which sit at 10%.

    If you idiots spent $90 to make something and sold it for $100, you'd all be screaming bloody murder that you got ripped off by your customer.

    Being a blaring idiot without any facts is popular though, so carry on.

    Most enthusiasts have a system that is "good enough" to play just about any game out there currently. With millions of games to choose from, I don't even care about new ones. Tech should be getting cheaper, with the economy the way it is things should be cheaper. Not more costly. Not to mention economies of scale. Most large corporations are doing just fine, they have more customers than ever. Why? More people and more markets than ever before.

    Then there's also the fact that with each process shrink, it becomes cheaper for them to manufacture these parts. So why then is it that prices have gone up recently? Hmm. No thanks.

    Agreed, I wasn't planning on buying a GK110-based card, made my decision months ago when Nvidia delayed BigK and 670 fell to reasonable prices and bought 2 at $330 each. But I would've considered getting 1 or even 2 if it were a reasonable $700 or so.

    For $1000 Nvidia can stick it, I'll probably end up investing the $1000 into Nvidia stock instead, sell at $20 and let the suckers who buy this thing finance my pair of GTX 780s whenever Nvidia decides the unwashed masses are ready to experience GK110.

    Oh come on, you fagged out on getting the 570's at the launch price and waited forever till you could squeeze out the lowest end price that is still not available anywhere.

    You're a crybaby tightwad who didn't pay any sort of regular price for either 670, so who cares how much you whine ?

    The cheapest 670 TODAY is $364 each at the egg, so you aren't any sort of measuring stick.

    Tightwad, cheapskate, scrooge, crybaby, penny pincher, then add in the braggart part, and the big fat STILL INCORRECT brainfart about 670 "having fallen" to $300 (implied), and if anyone goes by what you spew, they're nutso as well.

    Dumb question, please be kind =) but what accounts for the price difference between vendors for the same card? I can understand volume pricing, with respect to NewEgg if that's even the case, but if the vendors offer the same card with same clocks, what gives?
    FNW has a riser card with their Tiki system yet it costs less than iBuyPower and Origin's offerings. Different OEMs maybe?

    Brand cost... iBublegum is more expensive than Walmart bublegum, even they are exactly the same product from the same factory...
    There are people who are willing to pay more, if the "brand" is right...

    The Titan is like the Bugatti Veyron. People aren't buying it for price/performance. If that's your goal, you're much better off buying a $50K Corvette than a $1M Bugatti. It's for people who want the absolute fastest machine and don't care about the cost.

    Personally, I'm happy with my GTX 680, and feel no desire to buy a Titan.

    Sorry, but no. Titan is like a Corvette at Veyron prices. How they came to price it that way was completely arbitrary and contrary to their own historical pricing and performance metrics. Reply

    Pre-order, huh? For a video card, seriously... Someone's sure riding the hype-train for all its worth...

    At least offer some Team Fortress hats or other items for placing an order. What would that be though? A chaingun for Heavy that looks like a GPU blower cooler maybe?

    I don't know what startles me most about Nvidia's arrogance, that they're charging $1000 for a video card in the first place, or that they're charging $1000 for a video card with a partially crippled GPU on it.

    i agree that the price of this GPU is really high , one could easily assemble a fully mainstream laptop online with dell at this price tag or a desktop, but for gamers, to whom performance is above price. then it is a boon for them
