7.8 Out of 10

Explore 10 desktops with the GeForce GTX TITAN
In terms of clock speeds, the GeForce GTX Titan core doesn't get anywhere close to the 1 GHz mark, which is characteristic of every big chip from NVIDIA.

Real-life performance gained after our overclocking session was around 20%, which means that overclocking scales well and isn't bottlenecked anywhere.

Reviews Word on the street for the GeForce GTX TITAN


8.9
In comparison, NVIDIA's "Free to Play bundle" which gives you about $25~$50 worth of in-game currency (per game) with free-to-play games such as Hawken, World of Tanks, and Planetside 2, only makes NVIDIA look bad.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Based on NVIDIA's flagship GK110 silicon, it delivers outstanding single-GPU performance, easily claiming the title of "world's fastest GPU.
by techPowerUp!
Priced at the same $999, it is a single-GPU graphics card based on NVIDIA's GK110 silicon, and you can combine up to four of them, which absolves the GTX Titan of the need to match up to the GTX 690 in terms of single-card performance.

Applications

in non-gaming states is fantastic; better than any enthusiast-class card we've seen before, and better than the Titan reference design.
by techPowerUp!
If you value low noise, this option might still be viable as the card should still be fast enough to run most games.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2013)
Please also observe how on all these tests, the performance difference varies greatly between the games we tested.

Gaming

In a nutshell, Far Cry 3 is everything gamers missed in Far Cry 2 (after Crytek was tossed out of the franchise by Ubisoft) and even Crysis 2 (in which Crytek swaps the tropical paradise setting for grim, apocalyptic New York).
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2013)
Due to the massive success of the first game, Blizzard chose to make multiplayer combat through Battle.net a large aspect of the game.
by techPowerUp!
NVIDIA has a solid lineup for full-HD gaming and below.

Multi card

Two SLI connectors are available, which would allow you to pair Zotac's GTX Titan up with three other GTX Titans for a Quad-SLI rig; that is, if you can afford it.

We have also posted a GeForce GTX Titan SLI and Tri-SLI review.

Two SLI connectors are available, which means you can pair the GTX Titan with up to three other GTX Titans for a Quad-SLI rig - if you can afford it.

Framerate

Going from 60 to 75 Hz is not a huge improvement, but sideways movement looks a bit more fluid as long as your card can maintain that framerate.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2013)
In that specific test, looking at 5760x1080 surround gaming, the GTX Titan makes short shrift of any other card by delivering over 50% higher frame rates - crucial for aspiring race drivers playing on three screens.
by techPowerUp! (Feb, 2013)
Even when you disable V-Sync, the monitor will not display frames faster than this setting, and higher framerates may cause tearing, so many users opt to enable V-Sync.

The reason that thi site shows that it out-performs the 690 is because it only breaks the performance down by specs, and only counts a single GPU even in a dual GPU card. So if the 690 were a single GPU, the Titan would beat it.
I'm after info more than just processing power. I'm going dual screen, one control screen and one display screen, display graphics, including display of videos on large projector screens. Has anyone had experience in this environment?
GTX 690 is a dual-chip GPU, while TITAN is single-chip.
The GTX 690 outperforms the Titan in some ways, and the Titan outperforms the 690 in other ways. We show a breakdown of this here: http://gpuboss.com/gpus/GeForce-GTX-TITAN-vs-EVGA-GeForce-GTX-690 - I don't believe it's as one sided as you indicate.
The performance is a lie. GTX 690 is around 5-15% faster than Titan in about everything...
