Nvidia reveals $3000 GTX Titan Z graphics card for “supercomputer-inspired performance”

Today 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. 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.
