NVIDIA intros the fastest GPU on the planet, the GeForce GTX Titan
Want to know what’s the best GPU money can buy for your gaming rig? NVIDIA has the answer in the form of the new GeForce GTX Titan, designed to unleash the world’s fastest gaming PCs.
The GTX Titan is built with the same NVIDIA Kepler architecture that powers Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s newly launched Titan supercomputer, which is number one in the list of the Top 500 supercomputers in the world. Imagine that on your personal PC.
By harnessing the power of 3 GeForce GTX Titan GPUs simultaneously in 3-way SLI mode, gamers can max out every visual setting without fear of a meltdown while playing any of the most demanding PC gaming titles.
The GeForce GTX Titan features an array of innovative technologies complemented by sleek materials that contribute to the exotic design of the card, including a high-quality exterior aluminum frame and high efficiency vapor chamber cooling.
With its advanced thermal and acoustic characteristics, the GeForce GTX Titan is also perfect for powering the new wave of small form-factor gaming PCs. So gamers no longer have to make the choice between performance and size—they can have both at the same time.
“GeForce GTX Titan is a beast of a GPU — and the only one in the world powerful enough to play any game at any resolution at any time,” said Scott Herkelman, general manager of the GeForce business unit at NVIDIA. “And, yet, all of this immense power is housed in a sleek, sexy design, so gamers can also build beautifully-designed PC gaming machines about the size of a gaming console, yet magnitudes more powerful and always upgradeable.”
NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Key Features:
- Contains 7 billion transistors
- Has 2,668 GPU cores — 75% more than the Company’s NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 GPU
- Delivers 4.5 Teraflops of single precision and 1.3 Teraflops of double precision processing power
- Supports new GPU Boost 2.0 technology which automatically boosts graphics performance and supports unlocked voltage and advanced controls for even more gaming control and overclocking customization
- Can be combined with additional GTX Titans in SLI mode for even more performance
The GeForce GTX Titan GPU will be available starting on February 25, 2013 from NVIDIA’s add-in card partners, including Colorful, Galaxy, Gigabyte, INNO 3D, MSI, Palit, and Zotac outside the US. Pricing is expected to start at US$999.
