on February 19, 2013 10:05 AM

PC Gamers have some new hardware to get excited about as Nvidia has introduced the GeForce GTX Titan that designed to bring large amounts of power in a small size.

This graphics card was built using the same architecture that is used on Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s newly launched Titan supercomputer that is ranked number one of the top 500 supercomputers. The card will be able to work together with two more Titans in 3-way SLI mode that will make playing Crysis 3 look like child’s play.

The GTX Titan also features high-quality aluminum frame to assist in keeping the card running cool. It is also small enough to fit into small form factor gaming rigs while providing performance best its larger brothers.

The specs for the GeForce GTX Titan include for the tech savy:

  • 7 billion transistors
  • 2,668 GPU cores that is 75% more than the GeForce GTX 680
  • 4.5 Teraflops of single precision and 1.3 Teraflops of double precision processing power
  • Supports GPU Boost 2.0 technology that boosts graphics performance, unlocks voltage, and controls for gaming and overclocking customization
  •  GTX Titans an work together in SLI to bring out even better performance

This card is going to be great for those working on smaller scaled computers for the living room to those that are working on large gaming rigs. Sadly all this power does come at a cost that will be $999. If price is not a limit then this is the card that most PC gamers will want.
