Colorful Shows Off Overclocked GeForce GTX Titan

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 20 comments

Colorful is releasing a GeForce GTX Titan with two interesting features.

Colorful has announced its own factory-overclocked version of the GeForce GTX Titan that maintains Nvidia's reference design and the stock vapor-chamber cooler. The standard reference specifications of the GTX Titan are a GK110 GPU baked with a lithography of 28 nm, 2,688 CUDA cores, 48 ROPs, 224 TMUs, 6 GB of GDDR5 over a 384 bit memory interface that runs at 6008 MHz, and a base clock speed of 837 MHz with a GPU boost speed of 876 MHz.

Colorful's GTX Titan however has a maximum GPU clock speed of 983 MHz and a memory speed of 6400 MHz. This translates to a 12.2 percent increase in clock speed and a 6.7 percent increase in memory speed.

This being said, the most interesting part of this card is the two extra pieces of plastic that act as jacks and reduce stress on the PCB and PCIe port.

No word on pricing, but we can safely assume it will cost more than the reference model from other manufacturers. Sales will begin in the Greater China region, with no word on U.S. or global availability yet.

    1000 dollars and you get plastic jacks?... how about plastic jacks with the "colorful logo on them"
    or dragon figurines(or ajack in the form of dragon)... a dragon the height of the jacks with a magnetic (steel case bottom) or "hook and loop/velcro" bottom for plastic/aluminum cases)

    That would be a cool tchotchke!.. two dragon figurines that pop up the graphics card...

    Can just get the normal retail version and use some credit cards to prop it up instead or a wad of government bonds for safe measure.

    Ha ~ gimmie a break.. the benchmark results and comparisons from the Article review was just terrible and even worse the price to boot.

    If anything, I've made my mind up to the upcoming Radeon 7990 and this is coming from a die-hard Nvidia user for almost 10 years. I can't wait ~ ^_^ Thank you!

    You know a 670 outperforms a 7970 in most situations? http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/508?vs=598

    No, look at some new benchmarks. Far Cry 3 would be a good example of a more recent one, 7970 is better than the 670

    No, it doesn't. Anand doesn't use up to date drivers in that tool. That makes it absolutely useless in modern comparisons. It's test suite is also getting outdated even if you ignore the outdated drivers and outdated game versions simply through the games tested being old.

    You can't prove a point without a link to the source article because it can't be confirmed except by trying to find which article the image came from. Also, why did you give a link to downloading the image instead of posting the image?
