NVIDIA Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector's Edition - Take A Walk On The Dark Side

NVIDIA caused a great disturbance in the Force recently, as if millions of gamers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. We fear something terrible has happened, and they might not be able to get their hands on the glorious Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition cards that were announced a few days ago, but arrive today, alongside EA’s Star Wars Battlefront II.

Fear not young Padawan. If you can’t gaze upon a Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition with your own eyes, we will do our best to convey what it’s like to game on one of these limited edition beasts and witness its customized, lightsaber-themed shroud illuminating your system.

We’re going to dispense with the pleasantries, and not dwell on the Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition specifications much. The card features the same fully-enabled, Pascal-based GP102 GPU and has identical specifications to the standard NVIDIA TITAN Xp. If you’d like a fresher on Pascal and its features and capabilities, we suggest checking out our launch coverage, right here. The Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition is more about nostalgia and the design customizations NVIDIA made to the cards, so that’s what we’re going to focus on here.

There are two Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition cards available, the Galactic Empire version we’ll be showing you here and a Jedi Order version. Both of the cards feature customized coolers, shrouds, and lighting, designed to mimic the look of a lightsaber. They also ship in specialized packaging that could easily be used to showcase the cards if they’re not installed in a system.

The packaging features thick, rigid cardboard and fitted foam to hold and protect the card, and is topped with a clear acrylic housing. When the lid of the box is removed, the top portion of the card is revealed. We’ve got a ton of additional pictures in the image gallery available at the bottom of the page if you’d like to see everything from a few more angles.

As we’ve mentioned, the coolers are designed to resemble a lightsaber, and have multi-LED lighting to mimic the effect of a lightsaber’s plasma blade and diatium power cell. Laser-etched logos reside on the cooling fan's hub cap and the official Star Wars logo is featured on the back cover. Even if you’re not a huge Star Wars fan, the cards look great in our opinion.

The GPU powering the TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition has a base clock of 1,481MHz and a boost clock of 1,582MHz. It’s packing a fully-enabled GP102 with 3,840 cores, 240 texture units, and 96 ROPs. The whopping 12GB of GDDR5X memory on the card is clocked at 5.5GHz for an effective data rate of 11Gbps, which results in 547.2GB/s of peak memory bandwidth, over its 384-bit interface. At those clocks, the card also offers a peak texture fillrate of 379.75 GigaTexels/s and 12.1TFLOPs of FP32 compute performance, which is significantly higher than a GTX 1080 Ti. The Titan Xp still falls within the same 250 watt power envelope, however. As such, it requires 8-pin and 6-pin supplemental power feeds.

The outputs on the TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition are similar to a 1080 Ti as well, and consist of a trio of full-sized DisplayPorts and an HDMI 2.0b output. Up to four outputs can be used simultaneously for multi-monitor or VR setups.

And now, for some benchmarks and overclocking...
