NVIDIA finally puts $2,999 GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card on sale

NVIDIA first announced their massive GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card in March, but today the company announced that the $2,999 product is now finally on sale as a stand alone add-on. In addition, a number of PC makers are now allowing customers to add the Titan Z as an option in their desktop rigs.

As a reminder, the Titan Z card has two Kepler-based GPUs, which have a combined total of 5,760 processing cores, along with 12GB of GDDR5 dedicated frame buffer memory. All of that hardware is placed inside a shiny aluminum case.

If you are in the market for a new PC gaming rig and want to buy with the Titan Z already inside, both ORIGIN PC and Maingear have announced they are letting customers add the massive card as an option in many of their desktop systems. Origin PC buyers can include the Titan Z in their Chronos, Millennium and Genesis rigs for an upgrade price of $3,251  for one card, or $6,677 for two Titan Z cards.

Maingear is including the Titan Z as an option in its SHIFT, F131, Vybe, Rush and Force desktop lines. It will cost $3,350 to add one of those big cards to those rigs or $6,900 for two Titan Z cards.

It's just me, and I tend to find the cheapest place to go, or stay with family, or whatever. My most expensive recent vacation was a convention in Florida, and even then I stayed with relatives. It was airfare and the con itself (plus the dealer room!) that was expensive. Still under $1500, though.

Most luxurious vacation at $3000? Hook me up with your travel agent. We went to Orlando (Disney World) a few months ago for 10 days and it was about $7000

Per person?

No, should have clarified. Family of 3, Suite at the Animal Kingdom with wild animals outside of our hotel window, food, flight from California, golf cart, rental car, ECT....

Oh ok, yeah that sounds about right then. If it had been $7000 a person I probably would have done something international instead.

7 grand to Didney wooorld*? Seriously? You can get an 7 days "under the sun" pack with hotel and flights etc. for €700 here. Sure, you can't sleep next to some animal kingdom (maybe some huge a.. bees) nor that fancy but 7 grand..c'mon.

It's for enthusiasts with money to burn. It's damn powerful and damn nice. It's like discussing a bucatti veron compared to top of the range hot hatches.

Not worth the price - could buy 3 Titan Blacks or 4 780 Tis that'd destroy this.

This right here, 4 780 Ti's would be the same price with double the effective GPU Performance and the same amount of RAM.

Only bozo will go pick up a nvidia gpu for their rig. They have lost touch with gamer by charging hefty amount of $$ and difference in game compared to competitor isn't even close to night and day.

How long can a card like that be good for a gamer? This is the question i am asking myself.
Would it be good fro 4 to 5 years? In the case of this card itself. If not then it does not make sense to buy something like this.

AMD's equiv is a better value. It makes sense for professionals, and for 4k gamers. I have a mini computer, a single card dual GPU solution would be ideal. Having 3k to spend randomly on hardware that will become outdated quickly would also be ideal.

Sure, you are joking around with it but I should really pair two of these with my FX-9590 and our ´-30c winters wouldnt seem so bad anymore :)

I don't understand why this thing is 3 grand. It's essentially 2 GTX 780 Ti's on one PCB with extra RAM slapped on, so 12 GB total instead of the 6 you get with 2 780 Ti's.

The Two 780's are around 1400ish bucks, HOW IS THIS THING DOUBLE THAT? It should be 2000 max.

AMD really does. It basically trades shots with R9 295X 500-watt monster. And now Powercolor appears to have their own idea, about to be announced at Computex, of two Hawaii XT chips slapped on one PCB and, what's really fun, it's all air cooled.

Though its 4x 8-pin PEG requirement and 600W rating, one of a small space heater, kind of says that AMD has still completely lost the plot in terms of power efficiency.

That's where GK110 wins - green team struck gold with it from the beginning and recognized the endless milking potential immediately. B1 respin for Ti and revision bump for this one means Z, if nothing else, will be extremely efficient at its job.

Let's hope their new architectures both for CPUs coming late 2015 and Pirate Islands fix this first and foremost.

No, no it's not a couple of 780Ti units at all. You are very, very wrong.

This hardware is based more on the Kepler Quadro Workstation cards which easily can cost almost double of this card. For the amount of processing power this consumer level card gets you it is a very, very good deal.

See the Quadro K6000 for a more apt comparison at $5K.

Are there really any games that need a $3000 video card?

Nope, but if you're making money of games (developing or streaming), you might as well just get one.

Even if i was given one as a gift, i would totally sell it, that's how much i don't give a #### about this kind of niche products!

I dunno. I could never afford one, but if I was given one that'd be pretty awesome. I'd probably need a new power supply though.

Then again, there is a lot of other things I could do with the money, so it'd be a tough call.

Agreed, as i would definitely sell it for that much money. $3k for a damn video card is insane. most people would definitely sell it as even getting half of that amount (i.e. $1,500) for it you could build a pretty strong ENTIRE PC or spend it on another things. anyone who can drop $3k on a video card (hell, even a entire PC for that matter) clearly has too much money to say the least.

but basically... people who buy those cards just want to flex their wallet in front of others :(
