A couple of days ago, we showed you the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan in all its glory—almost. While we were able to reveal the card itself, discuss its new features and specifications, and talk about some of the new systems it will be powering, we weren’t able to post any performance data. Fortunately, that all changes today.

We’ve been able to test NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan in a number of different configurations, including SLI and in a multi-monitor setup, and have the goods for you here today. And yes, we’ve got some Crysis 3 action on tap as well...

So let me get this right. The benefits over the 690 is tri-sli, acoustics, and size?

I can see the benefit from a small form factor point of view, if the 690 is bigger than what you're wanting in a case, but I just don't see the benefit from a performance standpoint unless you have $3000 to invest into the fad of the year.

I can see this benefiting as Dorkstar said those with small form factor cases other then that who with half a brain would even need to 3way sli a card like this other then because i can type attitude.

This might be like porn for a gamer or a hardcore computer enthusiast but unless you have A LOT of money to put in in building a rig, i don't see why one would go to such an overpowered graphics card.

The titan is cool don't get me wrong but if I had a grand much less 3 grand even though the specs are crazy awesome I am going to sink that into something else. I love electronics and computers but until I win the redneck retire plan I just couldn't justify it. 


Having said that if someone gave me 3 of these cards I would find a way to put them in SLI in a heartbeat. 

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630

The only time I would consider this is if I had to drive multiple high rez displays - as of this moment, my 590 is more than enough for my 1x Dell 3011 @2560x1600, even in Crysis 3.  I figure I can pick up another 590 or 690 for less once the 700 series and maybe Titan variants take the top crown.
