690 better than titan there is something wrong here
The difference in these cards is that the 690 is better suited for GAMING. So many people write off the Titan not realizing that it is the only card that helps to bridge the gap between workstation cards and gaming so that people building systems for their careers can still game in the evening. If you are exclusively gaming then go 690. If you work with resource draining apps go Titan, x2 Titans or wait for the fully unlocked Titan Ultra!
Well as the 780 shows, more memory (Titan) does not mean better, or much better at least. They just pulled another Mars with the Titan card, this only happens at the end of a series of cards when it's around 4-5 month wait for the real next series that are much cheaper. To put it simply that is the time you actually wait for the next series to arrive to get a card just as good, if not better than the hugely overpriced ones that came only a few months earlier.
dude i totally agree.. 690 is still better on paper and for 1000 Price tag on both i think i would take the 690 still.
Are you kidding me? Titan beats 690? I think there's a bug in comparing 1- and 2-chips graphic cards
