Following Nvidia’s recent unveiling of its GeForce GTX Titan X – which it called “the most powerful graphics card the world has ever seen” – the company has revealed the GPU’s specifications and pricing.
Nvidia is not holding back with the Titan X, promising that the $999 card is the fastest, most advanced GPU money can buy.
For that small fortune you receive 12GB of GDDR5 VRAM, a 384-bit bus width, and the need for at least 600W of system power – the card alone draws 250W.
“The GeForce GTX Titan X is the ultimate graphics card, combining the latest technologies and performance of the new Nvidia Maxwell architecture,” said Nvidia.
The Titan X’s basic specifications are detailed in the table below.
