If you're looking to make a splash in your next high-end gaming rig and have the requisite funds, EVGA
will tempt you with not one, but three different NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z
graphic card options. There's the standard model, if you can use such a term to describe a dual-GPU beast like the Titan Z, as well as a Superclocked SKU and a version that comes with a Hydro Copper cooling solution for water cooling setups.
The Titan Z boasts two GPUs, 5,760 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 672GB/s of memory bandwidth, to cover some of the highlights. It also uses a new dynamic power balancing technology to ensure peak performance across two GPUs with optimal power delivery. And yes, you can install two Titan Z cards and have yourself a quad SLI setup.
EVGA's regular Titan Z (12G-P4-3990-KR
) sticks to the reference design with base and boost clockspeeds of 705MHz and 876MHz, respectively, along with a 7000MHz clockspeed for the memory. If you opt for the SuperClocked model (12G-P4-3992-KR
), EVGA gooses the base and boost clockspeeds to 732MHz and 915MHz, respectively.
The Hydro Copper SKU (12G-P4-3999-KR
) also comes factory overclocked with the base pushed to 758MHz and boost at 941MHz. Faster clockspeeds are made possible thanks to the Hydro Copper cooler, which sports a full cover design providing direct cooling to the GPUs, memory, and VRM, along with 1/4-inch threaded fittings on each side.
It's worth pointing out that EVGA warranties each of these cards for 3 years. Additionally, you can purchase extended 5-year and 10-year warranties
. For cards that cost $500 and over (as the Titan Z cards do), the 5-year and 10-year extended warranty options cost $30 and $60, respectively.
EVGA is also know for its 90-day Step-Up program
. If a newer card comes out with 90 days of purchase, you can use the Step-Up program to upgrade by paying the difference in price.
