Nvidia Launches Its Most Powerful (And Expensive) Video Card Yet

Nvidia Launches Its Most Powerful (And Expensive) Video Card Yet

Packed with the power of two GK110 GTX Titan Black graphics processing units and all the all the CUDA cores a CUDA core lover could ever want, Nvidia's 4K Ultra HD-killing Titan Z is ready to upgrade your computer to the tune of $US3000.

It's been a couple of months since Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang held aloft his magic card at the company's GPU Technology Conference and spoke the sacred words of power that would send the Titan Z into production. Normally Nvidia likes to hold its cards close to its chest prior to launch, but in this case folks needed to start saving up.

Nvidia Launches Its Most Powerful (And Expensive) Video Card Yet

Nothing much has changed since the announcement. It's still got 12GB of 7GB/s memory. It's still packing 5760 CUDA cores and a 12 phase power supply with dynamic power balancing. It's still really expensive, and I'd still love to slip one into my PC and see how it runs.

For those of you who'd rather not build your own, every boutique PC maker, from Maingear to Origin PC, are now offering the card in their builds as well, with prices starting at $US3000 plus the rest of the computer.


    Should be intetesting to see if the $3000 Titan Z can remotely keep up with two $1500 Radeon 295X2s. LMAO

      While I think two 295x2s would probably out-perform a single Titan Z, two Titan Zs will easily out-perform two 295x2s. I know that sounds silly but TBH, if you're the kind of person that would spend $3000 on graphics cards, your the kind of person that would spend twice that for twice the performance. And remember, you can only put two 295x2s in in PC, ditto that for the Titan Z.

        I am legitimately interested to know the results of this experiment. It would depend a lot on how well the cards scale in CF/SLI!

    I would hate to image the power bill from a system with that thing installed

    And I'm just sitting here looking at what midrange card I can upgrade my 9600GT to


    Checks mortgage redraw limit, doh. still tempted.

    Be interesting to see the OpenCL performance.

    and yet it still wouldnt give smooth preformance in watchdogs xD

    I so want to see this running Star Citizen. :D

    I liked that promotional video better when it was called The Fast and the Furious.

    So no GTX 790 Ti? A more suitable card for gaming imo.

    I just have my pet hate about calling it 12 phase power

    Realistically, the market for this are people who work in CGI.

    making a 4K CGI movie, they'll snap up 2 of these for each PC.
