So why is the Titan Z still available and costs 1499$ :l?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there everyone so i was just wondering why is the Titan Z so super expensive when its only slightly better than the titan X and isnt exactly something people would aquire over it anymore.... If we needed the (Middle between gaming and rendering) isnt the Titan X a better choice in the longterm altough of the better floating performance and bandwidth and especially since the X is more energy friendly? If we can buy a titan z then you can also buy a quadro :P? So what you think of the Titan Z purpose anymore?

Because it's the fucking Titan Z. It's a monster of a card.

The double titan black's have double precision, and there are two for only 200$ more than a titan x that doesn't have double precision .

It's quite a bit better for rendering ( I assume )

A titan Z is MUCH more powerful than a titan X son...it has two full fledged GK110 gpu on that thing...it's like dual GTX 780ti on a single PCB...it's a BEAST of a card.

For an extra $500, the performance different isn't worth it.

So for an extra 2% performance in benchmarks you consider it "MUCH" more powerful? I guess it must depend indeed on which benchmarks.

Why do they sell Nvidia Quadro K5000 than? Titan Z has double precision and for roughly the same cost it delivers better performance.

 

EDIT: I didn't want to get responted to that question. It was mean't as a rethorical question. I know the answer.

its not as easy as just

abc, do, re, mi... :wub: ..

some of us are waiting for nvidia´s solution for multigpu non same chip. And many of us are getting surprised about 900 series sli drivers results;

me one

 

since i started f@h i want a tesla+980+...

Quadro K5000 is much more optimized for such tasks and has overhaul more stability than a Titan Z :P..... Sorry i tough you meant the new one but that one is the M6000... Maxwell for the win :D

Don't get Kepler cards. NVIDIA's sabotaging the performance of Kepler cards with their newer drivers in order to make Maxwell look good. Search benchmarks of Witcher 3 or Project CARS and you'll see. Anyone with a Kepler card, Titans included can just use them as paperweights now.

TL;DR. Better driver support, much much better and also, the Quadro's sports ECC Memory which is critical for professional use.

I know but i wanted to show you how it is looking at it from pure performance standpoint like you were at titan x and titan z. They disabled the part for good DP on titan X so....

Still the titan X is branded "Inspired by Gamers. Built by Nvidia". Thats why :P

Meet the old GTX Titan Z. For those who want power but can't afford a quadro. A brilliant product by Nvidia.  B)

So who on here actually owns a Titan Z and paid the $3000 msrp when it came out?

The Quadros go through a lot more QC and they are verified for long periods of use without breaks. They are rock stable.

I actualy knew that but i wanted to present him that you musn't look at something from just the (gaming or daily use) performance but there's a lot more to it than that.
