This is why we love being PC gamers. The boundaries are constantly being pushed, and when announcements like this are made, we can’t help but feel that Pc Gaming is to gaming what F1 Racing is to the motor industry.
Yesterday during Nvidia’s annual GPU Technology Conference, the company announced the GeForce GTX Titan Z, a new graphics card that promises to deliver “supercomputer-inspired performance.” The card will sell for $3000.
The GeForce GTX Titan Z is built around two Kepler GPUs and 12GB of dedicated frame buffer memory. 12 GB!!! It features two GK110 chips, and is powered by a total of 5,760 processing cores, or 2,880 cores per GPU. It has also been engineered for 5K and multi-monitor gaming.
“If you’re in desperate need of a supercomputer that you need to fit under your desk, we have just the card for you,” Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said (via the Nvidia blog).
Nvidia says its Titan Z GPU is different than other dual-GPU cards because its GPUs are tuned to run at the same clock speed, and feature “dynamic power balancing.” This means, according to Nvidia, that neither GPU will face a performance bottleneck.
“And that performance is delivered in a card that is cool and quiet, rather than hot and loud. Low-profile components and ducted baseplate channels minimize turbulence and improves acoustic quality,” Nvidia said.
If anyone is feeling generous we’re accepting donations to start saving for this beast of a graphics card!
