NVIDIA Annouces World’s Fastest GeForce GTX Titan Z With Dual-GK110 – Features 5760 Cores, 12 GB VRAM, $2999 Price
NVIDIA has just announced GeForce GTX TItan Z which is their most high performance graphics card ever built on the GK110 core. The GeForce GTX Titan Z is a a pure beast featuring NVIDIA’s flagship GK110 core architecture and a massive core count backed by 12 GB GDDR5 VRAM.
NVIDIA Annouces World’s Fastest GeForce GTX TItan Z With Dual GK110 Cores
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z is an engineering beauty powering the next iteration of enthusiast and high performance gaming PCs. The GeForce GTX Titan Z isn’t specifically aimed at gamers and is also available for developers and content creators who can now use the power of dual GK110 cores to develop rich content.
The flagship GeForce GTX Titan Z will replace the GeForce GTX 690 boasting dual-GK110 cores compared to dual-GK104 cores on its predecessor. The GeForce GTX Titan Z will feature two GK110 cores with 5760 Cuda Cores, 448 TMUs and 96 ROPs. This mean that the GeForce GTX Titan Z is featuring the full GK110 specifications as opposed to the rumors which said it would rather use the cut-down GK110 core with 2496 Cores, 208 TMUs and 40 ROPs. Other specs include a 384-bit x 2 bus which will run across a massive 12 GB VRAM. This is an impressive feature giving developers and games an unprecedented amount of VRAM for use. The memory is clocked at 7 GHz effective clock speed. The core clock speeds are not confirmed but the GeForce GTX Titan Z features a maximum single precision performance of 8 TFlops which is really impressive.
The GeForce GTX Titan Z is expected to launch in Mid – 2014 and will cost a massive $2999 US which way higher that the previous Dual-Chip entries from NVIDIA. Clock frequencies are not know but we will be looking at moderate frequencies since NVIDIA will tone down the power consumption around the 350W barrier since they have put a high emphasis on their graphics cards quality in terms of temperatures, acoustics, design and performance.
The design of the GeForce GTX Titan Z is beefier compared to the GeForce GTX 690. The design is similar but the card takes up three slots to provide optimal thermals with the Dual GK110 cores in action. The card will feature dual black colored Vapor chambers placed on top of each GK110 core while a large cooler fan will push air from the internal assembly, cooling the components and letting the heat out of the front exhaust. The display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a Display Port. The card has a single SLI gold finger to enable two of these cards to function as multiple GPUs. The card is fed through dual 8-Pin connectors which represent a TDP of 375W.

Continuing the TITAN legacy of supercomputer-inspired performance, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled the GeForce GTX TITAN Z today at our annual GPU Technology Conference.
Built around two Kepler GPUs and 12GB of dedicated frame buffer memory, TITAN Z is engineered for next-generation 5K and multi-monitor gaming.
With two GK110 chips, TITAN Z is powered by a total of 5,760 processing cores, or 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.
Unlike traditional dual-GPU cards, Titan Z’s twin GPUs are tuned to run at the same clock speed, and with dynamic power balancing. So neither GPU creates a performance bottleneck. NVIDIA
