Nvidia has introduced the new GeForce GTX Titan, powered by the fastest GPU on the planet and designed to unleash the world's fastest gaming PCs including personal gaming supercomputers and svelte, quiet, small form-factor PCs.
"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."
GTX Titan is built with the same Nvidia Kepler architecture that powers Oak Ridge National Laboratory's newly launched Titan supercomputer, which is number 1 in the list of the Top500 supercomputers in the world.
By harnessing the power of three 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.
Designed with unsurpassed craftsmanship, 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. Overall, GeForce GTX Titan's aesthetic design evokes the spirit of a supercomputer and the enormous capability within: a blistering-fast GPU and astonishing graphics horsepower that is delivered with the power efficiency that only Kepler-class GPUs can provide.
With its advanced thermal and acoustic characteristics, 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 will allow us to create the nearly-impossible product our customers have wanted for years: a ridiculously fast, tiny system that you barely know is running," said Kelt Reeves, CEO of Falcon Northwest.
The GeForce GTX Titan:
• 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 25th, 2013 from Nvidia's add-in card partners, including ASUS and EVGA in North America, and additional partners, including Colorful, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit and Zotac outside the US. Partner participation will vary by region. Pricing is expected to start at $999.
GeForce GTX Titan will also be sold in fully configured systems from leading US-based system builders, including AVADirect, Cyberpower, Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, Geekbox, IBUYPOWER, Maingear, Origin PC, Puget Systems, V3 Gaming, Velocity Micro, and other system integrators outside North America.
