    The thing I love most about these new cards (900 series and Titan X - Maxwell) is the performance scaling. It's just great to see. Hopefully Pascal has nearly perfect scaling.

    Corrected cost per year of $131.4, not per month, premise for outrage disappears / 12x :)

    Per year, dude.

    And it's been proven that AMD graphics cards double as a space heater during winter time, so you would be saving money on electricity. :D

    As octiceps mentioned, $131.4 per YEAR. And that's assuming 24/7 usage at 100% load for the entire year, with electricity costing $0.30 per kWh. AFAIK only Hawaii has rates approaching that level, and most of continental US have rates half of that.

    No argument about heat output, but the Titan X is not what I'd call a cool running card either. And you may want to look at how toasty those GDDR5 chips run at when under load:

    90+ to over 100C on the memory chips at stock? Yowzers, better hope you bought from EVGA for their awesome warranty. :D

    Per year is 12x better than per month, but at $10/month per card, 4x SLI/CF would be $40/month... starting to get up there into the 1 EV car cost / month range ;)

    There are peak hour charges for electricity, and then usage peak costs during all hours - where you reach the max base level and then pay more in several tier levels, so even in CA the costs can go up quickly.

    Here in California, I worry more about air-conditioning costs. Heat is like $30/mo at most during the "cold" season. Can be $400+ during the peak of the Summer months :)

    If 4 of either card were running in a normal sized room, I might need the air-conditioning during the Winter ;)

    Yes but, the price delta also goes up by 4 since the price delta exists for each additional card you have in your SLI/CF array, so the per month extra cost is still the same as if you just had 1 card.

    I mean yes, on paper it looks like you're paying 4x more per month for 4 way CF vs SLI, but you have 4x the price delta to make up as well. Hope you see what I'm getting at.
