We all know that green team Nvidia loves to play towards the big GPU spenders, but when CEO Jen-Hsun Huang first revealed the rather ridiculous Nvidia GTX Titan Z at the company's GPU Technology Conference, everyone was blown away not by just its power, but also its lofty price tag of $3,000 USD.
With a dual-Kepler microarchitecture, a total of 5,760 processing cores, and 12GB frame buffer memory, the newest Titan GPU is most definitely aimed at the highest of high-end gamers. According to the original press release
from Nvidia way back in March, the Titan Z's twin GPUs are tuned to run at the same clock speed, essentially eliminating performance bottlenecks.
"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. And that performance is delivered in a card that is cool and quiet, rather than hot and loud. Low-profile components and ducted baseplate channels minimize turbulence and improves acoustic quality."
So if you happen to have that sweet pool of cash lying around, Nvidia is now taking orders through a variety of Australian and overseas retailers including Umart and MSY. While American enthusiasts will be paying to the tune of $3,000, Australia will have its RRP at the mark of $3,699. Oh, and here is a flashy video to show off the sweet innards of this beast.
