Today, Nvidia introduces the GeForce GTX Titan X, which they claim is easily the fastest single-GPU graphics card in the world. Our extensive test reveals that Nvidia did not exaggerate even in the slightest.
The Titan X is based on the Nvidia GM200 chip, the largest and most complex GPU of the Maxwell generation, which features 50% more cores than the GM204 chip that lies at the heart of the GeForce GTX 980 and 970. Do note that this is not the first graphics card that is based on this GPU, as Nvidia had already previously announced the professional Quadro M6000. However, whereas that graphics card is tailored to business applications, the Titan X will instead be tailored to gamers. More specifically, gamers with a 4K / Ultra HD display who are looking to max out their games. While we've previously seen that the GTX 980 is generally fast enough to render most games at the Ultra HD resolution, you'll often times have to make do with medium settings.
The GTX Titan X truly is a monstrous graphics card, which will no doubt sport an equally monstrous price. At the time of writing, Nvidia had not yet disclosed the board's MSRP; they will do so today during a keynote on their GPU Technology Conference. We suspect that the minimum price tag will be at least $999 in the States, which when taking into account the current exchange rates, VAT, and other such things, might just result in prices of around £900 / €1250 in Europe. But perhaps Nvidia will end up having a pleasant surprise for us, so do keep an eye on our news feed. Whatever the price may end up being, it does get you a magnificent graphics card...
