Nvidia to release two more powerhouse graphics cards soon

nvidia to release geforce titan 790 graphics cards dual gpu gtx 780ti 3

Nvidia – which touts the best, fastest (and freakishly expensive) one-GPU graphics card with its GeForce GTX 780 Ti monster – is apparently doing its best to avoid a scenario where rival GPU maker AMD can reclaim that title.

Nvidia will reportedly be releasing two more super-charged graphics cards, adding to its existing lineup of heavy hitters which includes the GeForce GTX 780 Ti and the GeForce GTX Titan. The new arrivals will be dubbed the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition, and the GeForce GTX 790, the latter of which will be powered by not one, but two GPUs.

While the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition will allegedly by powered by the same GPU found in the GTX 780 Ti, it will sport 6GB of GDDR5 RAM. That’s double the amount that’s inside the GTX 780 Ti. Meanwhile, the double-GPU GeForce GTX 790 will include a whopping 10GB of GDDR5 RAM. That’s significantly more than the amount of DDR3 RAM found in most of the world’s modern PCs.

Though an official release date for either of the upcoming Nvidia graphics cards has yet to be revealed, the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition will likely be released sometime next month. As for the GeForce GTX 790, that card could hit the market sometime in March. Both cards are expected to go for roughly $1,000.

Considering that the price tags for both the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition and the GeForce GTX 790 are expected to hover in or around four digit territory, it’ll be interesting to see whether these cards take off or not, especially because the GeForce GTX 780 Ti can be had for hundreds less.

For instance, we’re currently seeing the PNY XLR8 GeForce GTX 780 Ti go for $673 on Froogle. Meanwhile, cards based on the AMD Radeon R9 290X, which is an excellent card in its own right, can be had for even less; the XFX Radeon R9 290X being sold for $600 on Froogle, as of this writing.

What do you think of the upcoming GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition and the GeForce GTX 790 graphics cards from Nvidia? Sound off in the comments below.
