So, Nvidia has just relased a little info about various things in the "GPU Technology Conference 2014". Some of it was about one of 2014's upcomming gpu's, the "Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Z", along with other news such as for example:

- PCI-E speed will most likely increase by anywhere between 500% to 1200% in the next year or 2.
- Gpu efficiency pr watt will be 4x of what it is now etc.

So would love to hear a few thoughts around both the massive PCI upgrade, and what other changes you might think this will / can bring us in the near future. And also around the Titan Z.


Video i uploaded, containts a tiny bit info at the end of the video + in the description:

Yeah, this gpu is not for people with "realistic" paychecks or budgets for their builds. It makes it possible to run Titan Quad-SLI in mid-tower cases with a regulare ATX mobo. Also for 2-way SLI Titans in a small form factor mini ITX case for those who want it.

$3000 is just a launch price. I'm willing to bet it'll drop to $2000 or lower in a few months.
The TITAN-Z is just two titans paired together.
About the news:
Not only NVLINK, that promises around 80GB/s bandwidth between the CPU and GPU, but also stacked memory allows for 1TB/s memory bandwidth.
Also, the maxwell successor is also set: Pascal.

toooo costly. titan black was justified with 6g & for developers on the side dish but with the 780ti 6 gb cmin out brings another decision of choice. mayb for 4k but there no saying what future cards will have better performance. 2 titans blacks in sli will offcourse be cheaper option. i say mayb for developers or game dsigners the titan z is a good place to start

I know, i watched the whole livestream ;) 

And yes, the price will go down, seing as this will be one of 2014's earlier gpu releases. Meaning other / new serie gpu's will come out on the market, pushing the price on the previous cards down. But even with a lowered price, this one is still one expensive son of a bi***.

Note that, the Titan Z is a dual-core gpu based on the Titan Black Edition due to being fully unlocked, and not of the original Titan.

The Titan Z also allowes people to run a "Titan Black Edition" Quad-SLI type performance pc using a mid-tower case. Or a 2-way SLI in a Mini ITX for that matter.

The Titan Z seems mostly like a [totally successful] attempt to claim bragging rights over AMD. Other than that, I don't expect it to see much use in gaming. Before any games ever release to stress it, the design will be out of date. It'd be like if there was a 10Ghz Core2Duo, or 16GB of DDR2 RAM. Professional applications might find it more useful, but it won't be up to date for long enough for any games to use its power.

I'm more excited about the 8xx series of video cards. The architecture shows a lot of potential in the laptop GPUs and 750 so far. There's been a huge increase in power efficiency, and a still-larger-than-average increase in brute force.

Who knows, one of the $300 Pascal GPU's could outperform this card....

I cannot really imagine how the higher end cards using Maxwell will be, I earlier said it could be that a super high-end Maxwell could cross the 7500 GFlop mark, but with this card and Pascal promises, I'm stumped.

did the original Titan ever drop in price when Titan Black comes out? While stuff like NVLink seems interesting but i don't think consumer based gpu will use it. anyway boutique system builder would love to have titan Z :p

Completely off topic and not to be picky. But just noticed that you have named your X60 "Kraklin" + and are missing a "G" in "gigs" on the Samsung SSD on your rig. ^^

I can't either. Won't work.
You can use 2 way SLI only(in layman terms, quad SLI technically) for a Titan Z card -- it's dual GPU card.

With the release of "NvLink" from Nvidia and its transfer speed, that might just be possible in the near future.

Or even better, 8-way SLI with Quad dual gpu core cards. :heink:

Thanks a lot for the video! The Titan Z is impressive and I think it could become the most popular dual GPU-single card on the market. I am looking forward to reading more about it. Also, does anyone know the estimated price?

The confirmed price: $3000.
Yeah it could be popular, but the price needs to be slashed in fourth.

Well, 1 Titan Black Edition costs about 1100$ and seing as this is a 2-way SLI of Titan Black in 1 gpu that would mean that you would have to pay 2200$ for the same performance. But then again, a Titan Z will take up less space in the case (and takes up less PCI back-ports), i will generate 1/2 the heat that having 2x Titan Black's would, and more importantly it would be alot more quiet to have 1 dual core card instead of 2 single core cards.

So its not like the price is out of this world, and you do get some benefits from paying extra. Alltho i will agree on the fact that 800$ might be a little stiff price for most people.

I guess this is GPU is meant for professionals, like 3D artists and people working in movie studios. It´s definitely way to expensive for the common people...Anyway, I´m looking forward to seeing the AMD Radeon R9 295X, which is AMD´s response to the Titan Z :)  Rumors say it will be significantly cheaper than the Titan Z.

Hope we don't need liquid helium tanks for the 295x :p

With the R9 290x's target temp of 95degrees C, then i guess it would be more like "liquied nitrogen tanks" for the 295x ^^
