Why? because NVidia marketing said that it's a gaming card. From advertisement to the packaging, and even in NVidia website they wrote that all Titans including Titan Black, yes, that stupid titan black is, I quote "...the ultimate gaming GPU for a pure gaming experience." Now that's beyond me, seriously.
Nope, The Titan, Titan Black and the Titan Z are all made for CUDA accelerated applications where all of the 6-12GBs of VRAM are actually used. The reason why people decided to use it for gaming and mark it as an overpriced piece of crap is beyond me, really.
You mean Titan "Z" is graphic design oriented; which price is twice a Titan Black. The Titan and Titan Black are for gaming.
A Titan isn't really a gaming card. Sure you can game on it with great results but it's more for graphic design. A 970 is a better choice for gamers.
Technology moves effing fast! Wow lol.
I wonder who´s going to pay that price for a Titan having a 970 for the same performance hahaha.
Wow... That price difference though...
