NVidia GTX Titan Z 12GB GPU Now Shipping for 3 Grand

By Published May 28, 2014 at 2:50 pm

Despite rumors by some media outlets that the Titan Z had been 'canceled,' our recent discussion with nVidia proved that the card's release was still on-target for 2Q14. We first spotted the Titan Z at nVidia's GPU Technology Conference (GTC), hosted annually in San Jose. The specs have remained the same: It's a dual-GPU video card hosting 2xGK110 Kepler GPUs, 5760 CUDA cores in total, and emphasizing 8TFLOPS of raw COMPUTE power. The Titan Z houses two banks of 7Gbps 6GB GDDR5, meaning each GPU will have access to 6GB of RAM on-card. MSRP was set as $3000 when first announced.

I noted in our very same myth-debunking article that the Titan Z is not immediately comparable to AMD's 295X2, which is targeted more at enthusiast gamers who don't need double-precision. The Titan Z is a cheaper scientific card for developers requiring double-precision, but without the budget or specific need for Tesla / Quadro cards.

Either way, nVidia announced today that the Titan Z is now officially shipping through retail channels. MSRP remains $3000. NVidia added that the Titan Z offers a 12-phase VRM on-device, ensuring power stability under high voltages and overclocking endeavors. We're told that 4K resolutions (3840x2160) will be supported without issue on the Titan Z.

NVidia included an entirely uninformative marketing video alongside the Titan Z, but it's a nice way to look at a rendered version of the GPU:

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
