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?
