I watched the product release live and one thing that stood out was when Jen-Hsun Huang slipped in that it's the fastest SINGLE precision GPU ever, for the fastest DOUBLE precision you still need to look at the Titan-Z.

So, oh venerable people who know more than I do, which would SETI@Home benefit more from; the Titan-X with its single precision performance or the Titan-Z with its double precision performance?

Me, I just have the measly old Titan. I did have 2 but then one died. BOOHOO.

(Yes, I'm asking this question because I'm thinking of buying something insane)

Cheap? In the US maybe ($999). Over here it's coming in around £900 ($US1,350).

Here in Australia it's more like AU $2,000 (US $1,555) (pre order at this stage)

The prices I'm seeing are around AUD 1500-1600. About the same as the original Titan and Titan Black at the time of their release. Still way too much relative to everything else, though, especially if one is looking for double-precision performance. I suppose that's the top-GPU premium at work.

As I said; relatively! Compared to the Titan-Z or some variation of the K series (oh, for a K80 or two..!)

HA!

As I typed the previous reply I got a phone call from a friend. As it's my birthday in a week or so they've clubbed together to buy me "...another GPU to do that science thing you do. You know, the one with the T-Shirt..."

It's 'only' a(other) 750Ti but apparently I "...don't know enough people who care about you to get you the 'X' one, sorry buddy. Anyway, it's not actually out yet, is it?.."

Who's complaining? Not me!
1 x Titan (original spec, I had 2 but one died :-( Well, it HAD been running 24/7 for a year, I'm just waiting for the other to give up the ghost)
2 x 750Ti

ON WITH THE SCIENCE!

I do, and thank you.

To be fair, they don't quite understand why I'm looking for ET but I keep telling them there's more to be found in the radio signals than just ET's equivalent of The Archers.

Message 1656929 - Posted: 25 Mar 2015, 23:09:18 UTC - in response to Message 1655746.  

Now that we know more about this card, only 1000 cuda more than a gtx 980 and just a tad slower too.

While it has 3 times as much Ram, and 50 % more bandwidth. That's about all it has going for it.

So spending just a little bit more than it's suggested $1000 price tag, you could get 2 GTX 980s.

Not really seeing why I would get this card at the moment. Unless I could do significantly more Work units per card than I could with 2 of the 980s.

I'll wait for the GTX980Ti. It will be better value for money

Interesting, but according to that article it would be slower than the Titan X which is slower than the current GTX 980s

GTX 980 > Titan X > GTX 980Ti

why would you do that?

You would think it would at least make it as fast if not faster than the current model.

But how does it compare to the 780Ti which it is replacing?
