“If you’re in desperate need of a supercomputer that you need to fit under your desk, we have just the card for you.”
This was the statement made by NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang when he unveiled the GeForce GTX TITAN Z yesterday at the annual GPU Technology Conference. The TITAN Z is a behemoth of a graphics card built around two Kepler GPUs with 12GB of dedicated frame buffer memory. In other words, this is the next generation of gaming.
The TITAN Z is composed of two GK110 chips and is powered by a total of 5,760 processing cores – 2,880 cores per GPU. This is more than enough juice to run a multiple-monitor setup at 4K resolution. In fact, this card is engineered to handle the not-quite-available-yet 5K resolution of the future.
Compared to NVIDIA’s most commanding graphics card at the moment, the GeForce GTX TITAN Black, the TITAN Z is twice as powerful and three times as expensive. Clocking in at just under $3,000, the TITAN Z will be a serious card for serious gamers.
This graphics card is definitely not for everybody. But if you’ve been searching for a card that is designed using only the highest-grade components, is incredibly fast, and surprisingly quiet, this is what you’ve been looking for.
