Jen-Hsun Huang, Nvidia’s CEO, unveiled his company’s latest gaming enthusiast dual-GPU card, the GeForce GTX Titan Z. The news follows rumours that Advanced Micro Device’s (AMD) will also release a dual-GPU card soon.
The GeForce GTX Titan Z was unveiled at NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference. The twin set of Kepler-based GPUs will have 12GB of dedicated frame buffer memory, which makes it perfect for next-generation gaming on multi-monitor setups. NVIDIA declares that the GTX Titan Z has been engineered for next-generation ‘5K gaming’ and that its Kelper-based chips have 2,880 cores per GPU.
“If you’re in desperate need of a supercomputer that you need to fit under your desk, we have just the card for you” Jen-Hsun said during the conference.
Tuned to run at the same clock speed and equipped with dynamic power balancing, the Titan Z is designed to not bottleneck itself like other dual-GPU cards. Low-profile components and ducted baseplate channels that minimise turbulence, ensures excellent performance in a card that is still cool and quiet.
The announcement of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX Titan Z follows the release of the companies latest GTX 750 and 760 cards, which feature the newer Maxwell chipsets.
The Titan Z is said to be priced at about $2,999 USD (roughly R 32257.24) and will be available in the near future.
