Nvidia Corp. has unveiled its new graphics card that offers absolutely maximum amount of performance and features the GK110 graphics processing unit can offer. The GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition will outperform the original GeForce GTX Titan introduced one year ago and will become one of the world’s highest-performing single-chip graphics card challenged only by AMD’s Radeon R9 290X.
The GeForce GTX Titan “Black Edition” is based on the GK110 GPU in its maximum configuration: 2880 stream processors, 240 texture units, 48 raster operating units and 384-bit memory controller. The chip is clocked at 889MHz (980MHz maximum frequency), whereas 6GB GDDR5 memory operates at 7GHz effective clock-rate. The product is currently Nvidia’s best-performing single-chip consumer graphics board that leaves behind both GeForce GTX 780 Ti and the original GTX Titan.
The Titan Black offers 5.1TFLOPS single-precision and 1.3TFLOPS double-precision compute performance to provide extreme speeds for gamers and double precision for CUDA developers.
The new GeForce GTX Titan Black will not be the swan’s song of the Kepler family. Nvidia is rumoured to be working on a dual-chip graphics card featuring two GK110 GPUs.
The graphics card is available now starting at $999.
