You have read Ryan's review of the $999 behemoth from NVIDIA and now you can take the opportunity to see what other reviewers think of the card.  [H]ard|OCP tested it against the GTX 980 which shares the same cooler and is every bit as long as the TITAN X.  Along the way they found a use for the 12GB of VRAM as both Watch_Dogs and Far Cry 4 used over 7GB of memory when tested at 4k resolution though the frame rates were not really playable, you will need at least two TITAN X's to pull that off.  They will be revisiting this card in the future, providing more tests for a card with incredible performance and an even more incredible price.

"The TITAN X video card has 12GB of VRAM, not 11.5GB, 50% more streaming units, 50% more texture units, and 50% more CUDA cores than the current GTX 980 flagship NVIDIA GPU. While this is not our full TITAN X review, this preview focuses on what the TITAN X delivers when directly compared to the GTX 980."

Are you sure that it is not 11.5GB VRAM?

12GB is overkill for the Titan X. By cranking up 4K resolution with 8x MSAA at an unplayable framerate just to prove that 12GB may come into use is lame.

It's okay for sli usage. What good would it be if it was a 6gb card when as mentioned Fc4 and Watchdogs both top 7 gb's at 4k. It would mean people running 2 or 3 cards would be ram limited.

12GB is not overkill for graphic designers.

Shocking you didn't put AnandTech down. But am not surprised you guys listed all the pro articles. AnandTech is probably the only site around today that may actually pass as a neutral site (Just about). 90% of sites are afraid and just bow down to nvidia demands. Tech sites aren't what they used to be and customers should avoid tech sites as much as possible.

$1500+ in Australia. I'ed want this thing to wash my undies and clean the dishes for that price.

So the price will likely fall when the competition launches a superior card at 30% lower rumored price. Especially because this is a gamer card. Nvidia is trying to make that quick buck b4 then.

So who will be first to do an SLI test?
