The latest Nvidia graphics powerhouse to emerge from the manufacturer will be the GeForce GFX Titan. Seemingly caring little for the Titans’ unfortunate role in Greek mythology, Nvidia has declared it “the fastest GPU on the planet” (until someone announces the ‘Zeus’ GPU, I guess.)
I know almost nothing about graphics card architecture, other than that I giggle at the word “teraflop” every time, so these stats are presented without meaningful comment (because I don’t have any):
The GeForce GTX TITAN:
· Contains 7 billion transistors
· Has 2,668 GPU cores75% 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 customisation
· Can be combined with additional GTX TITANs in SLI mode for even more performance
You’ll be able to pick up a Titan from 25 February, in Asus, EVGA, Gainward, Gigabyte or Zotac flavours. It’ll retail at prices “starting at” £827 GBP. And that’s excluding VAT, so expect it to be about a grand.
No benchmarks just yet, but they’ll undoubtedly start cropping up before too long.
Here’s a fairly silly advert.
