The Nvidia GTX Titan Z graphics card was announced last March 2014 during the GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Most of the PC gaming community were excited at the very powerful GPU performance of Nvidia GTX Titan Z, which is designed to maximize any graphics of a game. On the other hand, gamers were also discouraged at the graphic card's asking price of U.S. $3,000, leaving others to think twice about spending that much on a graphics card alone.
Maximum PC reports that the Nvidia GTX Titan Z graphics card is officially available today. Initially pegged for an April 2014 release, the price remains the same with the announced MSRP of $3,000. This new video card is being marketed towards high-end PC gaming enthusiasts, as well as computer graphic design artists who demand a powerful video card that can handle huge graphics processing.
Design and Features
Details provided by Anand Tech indicate that the Nvidia GTX Titan Z graphics card features a pair of GK110 GTX Titan Black cards with 6GB of memory each. This gives a total of 12GB memory incorporated with a 7GB/s video memory. The GPUs clock in at 705MHz and can move up to 876MHz when needed, and a pair of 384-bit buses connect the memory for each of the GPUs. The temperature of the Nvidia GTX Titan Z graphics card's will be cooled by a triple slot design that allows the video card to cool itself more efficiently. Having a triple slot design means that it will take up 3 PCIe slot worth of space on the PC's motherboard. The configuration of its 1/O ports (photo) gives the following options, 1x DVI-I, 1x DVI-D, 1x HDMI, and 1x DisplayPort.
The Nvidia GTX Titan Z graphics card uses a 12-phase custom designed power supply. This power supply features dynamic power balancing between the 2 GPUs, and pulls in about 375W of power from the PC's motherboard through the PCIe slot. A detailed shot of the board details the architecture of the graphics card (photo). The 375W Thermal Design Profile (TDP) of the Nvidia GTX Titan Z suggests that PC building enthusiasts should look into a bigger Power Supply Unit (PSU). Nvidia recommends that the graphics card should be used with a 700W PSU or higher.
