Nvidia’s Titan Z is a $3,000 card that features two fully-enabled GK110 GPUs, which result in a total of 5,760 cores.
Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang started off the company’s annual GPU Technology Conference by announcing a new high-end card in the Titan series, called the GeForce GTX Titan Z. The card features two fully-enabled GK110 GPUs working in conjunction. Nvidia isn’t throttling the clocks on either GPU, which means that the Titan Z is equivalent to two GTX Titan Black cards.
The Titan Z features a total of 5760 stream processors, 480 TMUs and 96 ROPs on a 2X384-bit wide memory interface. The card features 12 GB of VRAM in total, while the memory clock will be the same as the Titan Black at 7 GHz. Nvidia claimed that the card can achieve 8 TFLOPS of FP32 performance, which means that the card can be used for compute tasks as well as gaming. Nvidia also claims that the card will be able to run a dual-monitor setup at 5K (5120 x 2700) resolutions.
Power consumption figures haven’t been announced, but the fact that the card features two fully enabled GK110 silicon means that it would be much more than the 250W boasted by the GTX Titan Black. Nvidia has announced the pricing of the Titan Z, which is high at $3,000. The card itself would be overkill for most gamers, but is a decent offering for high computing users. For even the most demanding of games, the GTX 780 Ti will be more than sufficient, until Nvidia launches its next-gen Maxwell 20nm-based offerings later this year.
