At this point in a new GPU launch article, we would normally list details of our test bed and dive right into the performance results. Unfortunately, for those of you that are itching to see exactly what the GeForce GTX Titan can do, you’ll have to wait just a little while longer.
NVIDIA has asked that we not publish our performance results for just few more days, but don’t sweat it—the wait will be worth it—especially if this Crysis 3 download finishes on time. In the meantime, here’s a video NVIDIA has put together announcing the GeForce GTX Titan. After geeking out over the last few pages, this little teaser should get you fired up all over again.
The GeForce GTX Titan should be available immediately from many of NVIDIA’s key system partners, with limited retail availability to follow. As you probably expect, pricing is going to be relatively high and will fall into the same range as the dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690. Whether or not you consider the GTX Titan worthy of consideration will depend on your budget and the card’s performance relatively to competing offerings. We’ll paint the complete picture soon enough, but one thing is for certain: the GeForce GTX Titan will easily be the most powerful single-GPU powered graphics card available and its high-end construction, new features, quiet operation, and ability to work in a wide range of form factors make it all the more interesting.
