The original Kepler Titan was a cheap compute card, but later Maxwell and Pascal Titans have lacked DP strength. These newer Titans are definitely gaming graphics cards, and NVidia has pushed prices to new stratospheric heights with them. Even overlooking that omission, I don't see the 1080Ti on your chart. NVidia's evil marketing geniuses also brilliantly stuffed a big first-adopter premium into their own pockets instead of into e-tailer's pockets with their founder's edition.
On topic: A consumer CPU is whatever processor a consumer buys. Intel has certainly worked hard to create market segmentation to support higher average selling prices, but if they offered 16 or 24-thread CPUs at prices that consumers would pay, those would be consumer CPUs.
