I'd want two free fillipino brothels and a position in the mafia with it for that price

Hmm...do I want a car or a graphics card.....

Both the Titan and this bunch of numbers are dumb, consumers don't need or want them - other than to make up for small penis size....

The new AMD R9 295x2 is more powerful and better than a titan black...
Compare

But the new titan Z that is due out soon is more powerful!!! But the Titan Z is said to be around $3000.....

I'm still running an "old" GTX 690 .... that one runs BF4 at 120 frames.

So ... this would be a fair bit faster then the GTX 690 ... o_O

This thing is fucking rape. Seriously. I'm an nvidia guy and find this thing just incredibly awesome Big Grin
Totally overpriced - overkill and "who the fuck needs this level" but I still wanna see a quad crossfire of this thing Big Grin
The idea of shipping a water cooled gfx card by default is fucking insane Big Grin
Wonder how much asus got paid for the cooperation..

No CUDA. No PhysX. No ShadowPlay. No sale.

If you're not making use of nVidia technologies then you're not so much an nVidia guy as a guy who just happens to be using an nVidia card.

Well with this thing you wont need shadowplay since you can record everything even with fraps on like 200fps. except 4k.
You could buy an extra physX card to calculate the awesomeness of that.
Welp its amd, no shit its not cuda. Who the hell needs cuda if you have 2 R9 290xs in one card.

Also AMD has a pretty huge list of exclusive stuff as well.

I'm still an nvidia guy. I just think its awesome how they pack so much inefficient power into one card that even needs a stock h2o cooler.
looking forward to titan z vs r9 295x - even tho titan z will probably win.. 12gig of gddr5..

I am AMD and have been for a long time since the HD3870. Before that I was Nvidia with a 9800GTX.
This is a damn good card and is top of the market at the moment.
Titan Z Is going to beat this card but it should do with the expected price of $3000.
Wont be getting either of them but WOW!!!!!!!!!

I know a few people that would buy this card and use it for something like minecraft...PMSL!!! More money than sence!!!!

Fraps is horribly inefficient both in CPU usage and in the gigantic movie files it spits out in a proprietary format, which you have to transcode before they can be used. Bandicam is better than Fraps as it can make use of CUDA to create good quality MPEG-4 files. But even that isn't as efficient as ShadowPlay.

Additionally every other recording app requires you plan the recording rather than just press a button when something interesting or funny happens and have that last 1-20 minutes saved. I'd love to see some real alternatives to ShadowPlay but they don't exist.

Or just use an nVidia card as my primary card, keeping power consumption and heat generation down to a minimum.

Having two ATI cards won't help with rendering in Blender. Whereas a modest nVidia card like the 770 GTX pummels most if not all CPUs for rendering time. CUDA is a big deal for people who use their GPUs for more than just gaming.

But then again that all pretty much doesn't matter. If one has the money to actually invest into this he probably won't go cheap on the rest of his rig either. "I'll buy a 1,3k gfx card and an i3 because its more power efficient." - no one ever (2014)

List of exclusive stuff:
Zerocore
True Audio
Eyefinity (Up to 5)
Mantle
Crossfire (not that you'd need it)
Insane OpenCl performance
Huge power consumption
Shitton of heat
The pricetag + the pricetag of your power-bill

obviously for somebody that is using gfx cards for buisness & rendering AMD cards are rarely a solution.

There are always people who go for insanely overpowered rigs for anything thats on the market right now. Who needs this? Probably nobody. Do they care? nope... They will probably sell quite a few of those just because of all the bitcoin miners in the us right now.

What I really don't understand are people with like 12 mining rigs in their basement - oc'd amd cards to the max with watercooling.
But what I really wanna see of these people is merging their heating system with the water cooling system. Buy a HUGE pump - connect the tubes to the gfx cards and the heating system and see what happens Big Grin
