Nvidia is set to release a new graphics card, the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan, that harnesses GK110, the GPU architecture present on the Kepler technology used for general-purpose GPUs in supercomputing. Their biggest customer in the space, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, has recently upgraded their fastest supercomputer, called the Titan, with 18,688 Tesla GPGPU cards which made it the world’s fastest supercomputer. Now Nvidia is bringing that technology to the PC gaming consumer.
The GTX Titan is priced at $999.99, a few grand cheaper than the higher end Tesla cards used for scientific and engineering applications. It will come with 6 GB of GDDR5 memory, and on the higher end of clock speeds can get up to about 990 Mhz.
