NVIDIA Reveals “Supercomputer GPU” GTX Titan

NVIDIA today introduced its new flagship desktop graphics processor, the GTX Titan, a card inspired by the NVIDIA -powered Titan supercomputer found in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory

With 2,688 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR5 memory, the GTX Titan is NVIDIA’s most powerful single-processor GPU chip to-date, and while the GTX 690 is still more powerful with regards to raw specs and compute power, the Titan is the more efficient card. Because of this, the Titan draws less power, generates less heat, and runs quieter.

NVIDIA’s latest GPU Booster software will allow users to prioritize performance over silence, however, and the card will be unlocked for overclocking.

Digital Storm has announced a Titan Edition of its Bolt small form-factor PC.

The GTX Titan is set to release later this year and cost roughly $1000.

Would you pay that much for a graphics card?

“the Titan draws less power, generates less heat, and runs quieter.”

Thank God. I’m loving the advances in technology and all, but these cards just seemed to get hotter and hotter as they progressed, nice to see Nvidia trying to find a balance now.

This happens every single time AMD fails to kick nVidia’s teeth in. nVidia gets a little too much of a lead, and they go crazy with prices. It never ever fails.

@SXO: You may as well get used to it, at least for 2013. It looks like AMD is passing on releasing any new consumer cards this year, so it’s all NVIDIA, all the time.

Titanomachy. Ten years of War. …When the Titans were sent to Tartarus defeated by the tunderbolts of Zeus and storms of Poseidon. …The thunderstorm of cloud-gaming is coming, time to get high-speed connected instead.
