It’s Official: Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan
A few of the rumors from the last several weeks have been confirmed, like the Titan using an unfettered Kepler GK110 GPU, 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM, 2,688 CUDA cores, and the output layout (two DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort). As far as performance goes, the benchmarks are being held for now, with Tom’s Hardware reporting that Nvidia wants the hard data to “…remain confidential for another couple of days.” Hopefully the figures we’re all clamoring for will be online by Friday. While specific figures are still hard to find, Destructoid has already put the Titan through the Crysis 3 ringer. Jim Sterling (also of Game Front fame) paired the two, and “…even the Titan breaks a sweat when the game decides to get really serious.”

The Titan might sound like a physically dominating name, but it’s a Titan in performance only. In fact, the Titan is shorter than the reference design AMD Radeon HD 7970 by about half an inch. If you’re currently rocking any high-end GTX 500, GTX 600 or HD 7000 series card, your case of choice will fit the Titan without any fuss. Whether or not it will fit your wallet – $1,000 is the asking price online – is another story.
