Nvidia finally releases the $3,000 dual-GPU GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card

how to find out what graphics card i have pc windows titan z

After multiple delays, GPU maker Nvidia has finally unleashed an absolute monster of a graphics card: the GeForce GTX Titan Z. It’s available right now from Amazon, Newegg, and TigerDirect for $2,999.99. Numerous boutique PC builders, including Digital Storm, Maingear, and Falcon Northwest, have made the Titan Z available as a configurable option with their systems as well.

Originally unveiled back in March, the Titan Z was slated for an April 29 release, but its launch was pushed back to May 8. It missed that date as well, and though whispers circulated that the Titan Z would be released today, that wasn’t exactly a certainty.

Spearheaded by a pair of Kepler GPUs, 12GB of RAM, and 5,760 processing cores, if you plan to get your hands on an Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z, you better invest in or have a top-tier cooling system at the ready. The Titan Z employs the same GPU used in the company’s Titan Black cards. Therefore, it’s essentially a pair of Titan Black cards melded together onto a single board. Since the Titan Black is an uber-powerful card on its own to begin with, this combination should be incredible.

Titan Z Maingear

Port selection includes HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-I, and DVI-D. The Titan Z supports four monitors, can handle 4K displays, and requires a power supply of 700 watts. To plug it into your PSU, you’ll need a pair of 8-pin connectors. It’ll take up three expansion slots in your rig, and is 10.5-inches long, so make sure your PC’s case has the real estate to accommodate this beast before you plunk down the cash for one.

Though that’s an incredible amount of power to pack into a single graphics card, the Titan Z already has some stiff competition. AMD’s own dual-GPU demon, the Radeon R9 295X2, thoroughly impressed us when we reviewed it. Our tests led us to conclude that it’s the only single graphics card that will allow you to game at 4K. Plus, at $1,500, it’s half the cost of the $3,000 Titan Z.

We can’t wait to get our hands on a review unit, so stay tuned for continued Titan Z coverage and benchmark test results!
