Nvidia announced the Geforce GTX Titan Z during the GPU Technology Conference today.

The massive card, at least compared to mine, was engineered for 5K and multi-monitor gaming, and built around two Kepler GPUs and 12GB of dedicated frame buffer memory.

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,” said Nvidia co-founder and CEO Jen-Hsun.

UTitan 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.”

Those in the market to build an”ultimate ultra-high definition gaming rig that can harness the power of quad GPUs working in tandem,” will have to fork over $2,999.

    My feelings on this are rather conflicted: I don’t know whether to be turned on by it or exasperated over the price.

    lol shitty sub hd graphics card only 12gb lol cant even play Crysis at 640×480 at 30fps on ultra low
    i can only play games at 3840×2160 ultra ultra ultra max with my intel radeon 5ghz 32-core cpu and 32gb 16x GPU

    ERTHAZUS MODE OFF

    I assume these things are only ever released for PR reasons, like who’s gonna buy a card for $3000. Surely it’d be better off as a research project.

    @Fin you are a retard as always. Ignorant one.

    This is a workstation card. It’s meant for the professional who does CAD work or for GPU grid on super computers. It’s not meant for the gaming consumer.

    I wonder what type of facial expression that would be like?

    @Erthazus Thats not entirely accurate either. This is for neither current consumer or CAD user. I work for an engineering company now that specializes in CAD drawings for Architects, industrial engineers, commercial engineers, and computer engineers and what i do for them is build there machines and networks to work on. This card is extreme over kill for even that.
    This is more of a “Look what we can do” stunt as more of what Fin is suggesting.
    A card of this stature wont be utilized for at least another 2 years.

    This card is not meant for gaming, it is meant for the lower-end professional crowd.

    I thought it was for the low-end mobile market…

    So this is the sequel to the gtx 690. I wonder how AMD’s dual processor successor to the 7990 will compete, or let alone be named given that the 290 is already taken.

    Funny, most of the average console gamers I talk to think that cards like these are required to play PC games. My card cost me like 200usd of the shelf and I run most things better then the PS4 and XBO. Hella of a card here tho. I can’t imagine the power supply needed. I am looking forward to the new Maxwell cards, NVidia GTX 750 TI(I believe) should be about all I will need for a long time.

    My 780ti is all i need for the next 5 years.

    And in 5 years i’ll buy a card that’s twice (or more) as powerful as this Titan. That’s high end PC gaming for you. It’s expensive being at the top. But it’s oh so worth it if you delve into it.

    @12

    You’re retarded. Some people actually have money (big shocker), and can buy one of these without even giving it a second thought.

    Think about that for a minute, and when you grow up and start earning money yourself you’ll start to understand. First you’ll have to finish pre-school though, good luck with that.

    Welp. That one’s for the pros. You really don’t even need a tenth of that power for what games are using, these days. Even high-end games.
