Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 graphics card, based on the Kepler architecture, was released about a year ago, which is quite a long time by the standards of the GPU industry, even though the latter has slowed down recently. Many of us expected AMD and Nvidia to roll out new processors and technologies this spring but it never happened. Moreover, traditional autumnal announcements are uncertain too, according to latest news. For example, AMD has decided just to rename its graphics cards once again.
Still, there is at least one interesting product which is absolutely new. It is the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan graphics card.
Shipped as a limited edition (10,000 pieces) at a recommended $999 apiece, it is no mass product. The GK110 processor installed on the Titan comes from professional Tesla K20X cards designed for supercomputers and high-performance servers. They have different standards there, hence the extremely high price for a single-GPU solution from a desktop user’s standpoint.
Let’s see what Nvidia offers for that substantial sum of money.
