Titan XP? Would have thought a 'Titan Windows 10' would be more suitable, XP is so turn of the century

Titan XP is the newest Titan iteration, Titan X with the PASCAL architecture

Peeps are just calling it the Titan XP so it's not confused with the Titan X based on the Maxwell architecture.

I also see the reference of XP being an older OS too, but hey, along side Windows 2000, I think it was the best OS Microsoft ever released.

That little bastard is going to cost you £1,099 / $1,200 seeing as you can't yet buy it individually from a store, it's only available from nVidia's website!

Wonder if that's because:

Price! Who, other than the 'must have' and 'more money that sense' crowd is realistically going to buy it? It's only about 15% faster than a 1080 (less if overclocked) but costs about 100% more!! Even 4K gaming might make it struggle, that's assuming anyone who buys it HAS a 4K monitor (preferably with G-Sync) and games actually support 4K natively with no upscaling!

I think 2 x 1080 in SLi would be a better option

4k is already passť, 8k is where true gaming's at! [ Show youtube player ]

On a serious note, Lirik, the biggest streamer on Twitch has TRI-SLI Titan X(P)'s running most games smoothly in 1440p/144Hz, though some still are problematic due to the UI glitching in higher-than-1080p resolutions.

He would be an idiot if he got those, no gaming machine is 100% 4k ready yet and the compatibility with even slightly older games is non existant. That's what I meant by mentioning his setup, problems start even at 1440p.

A single 1440p monitor setup (G-Sync) for 3 x Titans? Idiot! My 2 x 780's can cope with that!!

He also plays games.

BTW: this is his setup, I never said he's got a single monitor:



The Monitors are 27 inch, from left to right: LG 27mu67 4k 60hz, Asus rog swift PG279Q 1440p 165hz, Asus rog swift PG278Q 1440p 144hz.

What an idiot! OOH look, I've got a twitch feed and a mic so i'm an insta-celeb, oh, and don't know how to do cabling properly, really professional

The funny thing is they think they are doing something 'worthwhile' or 'important'! Yeah, playing games and streaming is really what the human race needs to take that 'next step' to making us all Neanderthal button pushers

Speaking of game sales - I love how Humble Bundle integrated with Steam - and you could get only missing games our of bundle. I was planning on getting Dev bundle anyway, but they just made it easier.

DayZ+Minecraft = Unturned

But it doesnít mean itís a kidís game. Actually, skillsets, roof repairing and weapon tools make it perfect game for adults.

Just checkout IDs of items at http://unturneditemid.com/ for one of the most played game of Steam 'Unturned'.

Anyways, my recent crush on Steam is Dota 2
