Hardcore PC hardware users always want the fastest and most powerful graphics card in their rig and today, NVIDIA claims that they have the current champion in the just announced GeForce GTX Titan. The card also comes with a very "powerful" price tag of $999.
What do you get for that amount of money? You get a single graphics card with 2,688 CUDA cores, 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM, and 7.1 billion transistors that NVIDIA says can generate 4.5 teraflops of single precision and 1.3 teraflops of double precision processing power. If you have a ton of money, you could put in up to three of these graphics cards in a PC that will work in SLI mode.
NVIDIA is also hyping the construction and design of the GeForce GTX Titan, saying, that it has a "high-quality exterior aluminum frame and high efficiency vapor chamber cooling."
A number of PC OEMs will begin to offer the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan as an option for their high end PCs starting on Thursday. Companies such as ASUS and EVGA will begin to sell stand alone versions of the GeForce GTX Titan starting on Monday, February 25th.
