Meet X, Titan X


The new king of graphic cards

This is like Christmas and New Year’s coming nine months early for gaming ultra-enthusiasts. Meet Nvidia’s new gladiator, the sexy but not so sleek Titan X. For those that do not know, Nvidia is a brand leader in the graphic card industry producing high end graphic cards suitable for gamers. Simply put, a graphic card is like the backbone of a gaming computer that decides how to use pixels on your screen to create an image.

Dubbed the Ferrari of all graphic cards currently available in the market, it is the most advanced Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) ever made. If you are looking for a graphic card that has the best GPU, memory bandwidth, overclocking capabilities, core and memory clock look no further; the best is already here. 

Nvidia’s newest addition the Titan X brings to gamers an entirely new experience


Specifications in a Nut Shell

It is not difficult to see why the Titan X will stand out in a crowd, especially when it has these many traits to flaunt about.

Being 10.5” in length, it is much larger than its predecessor the GeForce 980. Titan X is an all-in-one graphic card with its own built-in copper vapour chamber cooling system and constructed using Nvidia’s new Maxwell architecture. Packed with 3072 CUDA cores, that is an entire 50% increase from the GeForce 980. The Titan X also has a 12GB memory GDDR5 frame buffer, high capacity VRMs that will give an additional 10% headroom all of which will operate with almost complete silence.

 

All in the Frames

Titan X is a gaming gladiator that will give you twice the performance and power efficiency when compared to the GeForce 980. Most high-end games need frames to be refreshed at a rate of 40 to 60 per second when put to the highest setting to ensure smooth play and minimal latency. Here’s where Titan X will amaze any gamer - it is able to refresh up to 90 frames per second. 

Even when popular games are put to their maximum settings at 4K resolution, you can still enjoy uninterrupted gameplay with Titan X.


Thanks to Titan X’s 12GB memory GDDR5 frame buffer, it is able to run the latest DirectX 12 games and future games that are expected to have increased visual complexity at the highest screen resolutions without running out of graphic memory.

 

Next Level of Gaming

Demos produced by big names in Virtual Reality (VR) and gaming such as Oculus, Epic Games, Weta, Valve and Crytek, seem to have found the solution to their problems with Titan X. With so much power, it is able to reduce latency during head rotation when used in VR gaming; which spells less chances of motion sickness during use. This brings us one step closer to making mass VR gaming a reality.

For those who prefer gaming on large screens, you would be pleased to know that the Titan X’s display engine is capable of supporting the highest resolution displays available; even up to 5K.

 

Made To Be Stressed

Titan X was put to the stress test with the game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. All settings for the game were set to maximum and the CPU was hooked up to a 4K 27” display. To be honest, it was one thing to hear NVIDIA’s representative brag about how awesome the gameplay experience is without latency, but it was another thing to see it right before my very eyes.

 

Price: US$999
