It's great for revenue however. In nvidia's case, they're marketing a design they've already sunk R&D into in another market (now consumer instead of HPC), which has an insane profit margin for them. AMD would actually have to design a competing product and then try to make money back on those sunk costs to be in the same position, which is very far away for them.The Titan looks pretty good for the prosumer market, mainly just because of 6GB of ram. Might be very useful for Adobe products...
I don't see how nvidia can sell this without cutting into quadro or tesla sales.
Still, not a market AMD really needs to address, I don't think the $1000 video card market is high volume enough to really matter, this is just the tail end of nvidia's business market.
The problem is AMD seems to hire high school drop-out equivalent marketing people. Honestly, given the facts, a middle-schooler could have come up with better responses.I found the constant reference to Ares II pathetic to be honest... Like others said, these are the kind of replies you would expect from Nvidia
I mean, sure Titan might not compete with anything AMD has in price/performance, but they specifically asked "Do you acknowledge Nvidia will have the fastest single gpu card? Yes/No?" and they still refused to answer, wow
Not sure how this is good PR in any way, makes them look like a bunch of idiots
