I noted in our very same myth-debunking article that the Titan Z is not immediately comparable to AMD's 295X2, which is targeted more at enthusiast gamers who don't need double-precision. The Titan Z is a cheaper scientific card for developers requiring double-precision, but without the budget or specific need for Tesla / Quadro cards.
Either way, nVidia announced today that the Titan Z is now officially shipping through retail channels. MSRP remains $3000. NVidia added that the Titan Z offers a 12-phase VRM on-device, ensuring power stability under high voltages and overclocking endeavors. We're told that 4K resolutions (3840x2160) will be supported without issue on the Titan Z.
NVidia included an entirely uninformative marketing video alongside the Titan Z, but it's a nice way to look at a rendered version of the GPU:
