A List of Manufacturers Releasing GeForce GTX Titan Cards

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 31 comments

Various manufacturers including Asus, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit and Zotac have released their Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan cards.

A number of manufacturers have released their Titan cards, and a few of them deviate from the reference specifications, as Nvidia has supposedly encouraged manufacturers to stick with the stock PCB, just like it did with the GTX 690. Because of this, almost all the cards are identical replica's of Nvidia's reference model, and the cards that deviate from the reference specifications come with nothing more than a small software suite or some extra peripherals. The only manufacturer that has more than a minor addition is EVGA, which has released a HydroCopper version of the card on top of its reference clone.

The standard reference specifications of the card is a GK110 GPU baked with a lithography of 28 nm. The cards feature 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.

The two manufacturers that include a software suite to go with the card are Asus and MSI. Asus ships the card with its own GPU Tweak Utility, and MSI ships the card with its own MSI Afterburner software. Both software packages are for monitoring GPU temperatures, fan speed, and adjusting the clock speeds for easy overclocking.

Gigabyte has decided to throw in a few extras, so rather than the default empty box buyers will find a Aivia themed pack of playing cards (Although we'd be willing to bet that anyone buying this card will be doing something other than playing with the playing cards when they get it) along with a gaming mouse pad.

EVGA has gone the extra distance to include a separate cooler. The HydroCopper version of EVGA's graphics card was developed in partnership with Swiftech, and the cooler is built mainly with nickel plated copper. Moreover, the card is marked as a SuperClocked card, however, the clock speeds were not given. Neither was a price, but we can expect it to be priced about $300 above the reference model. EVGA is also releasing a reference version of the card without the HydroCopper cooler.

The GTX Titan should be hitting shelves soon, with pricing at roughly $1000 for all reference cards.

    Well if I had the money I'd get one from EVGA to replace my 400 series card. I've always had good luck with their cards. Sucks being unemployed :[

    I suspect the price/demand for GTX 690 might actually GO UP after the Titan release.

    It must have been tricky to price this card. On one hand it under performs its price point (single card). On the other it is by no means a rip off if you buy two, because two Titans out perform two 690s for the same price.

    So let me get this right.. I need 2 Titans in SLI to see any noticeable difference in Far Cry 3 with 3 screens over the 690 gtx correct? Meh... I think I will wait for the 700 series and I love my gtx 670 ^_^

    If AMD kept rolling new series every 12 months, this card would be half price now. Nvidia really made some dough on Kepler thanks to AMD.
    Also, I still believe this was supposed to be original 680 if 7970 wasn't so underwhelming. Still, I'd rather buy 7970 than 680 due to Nvidia pulling an Apple with this generation.

    I like playing cards:) 
    I thought the software utilities are available freely for download so probably aren't much use

    If anyone wants anyone knocked off, I'm only charging 3 of those liquid-cooled Titans. ;)

    soldier2013Spoken by someone who can't afford one. Some of us can and do buy these types of cards. My single 30" display costs more than this card. I game at 2560 x 1600 so yeh I need one of these or 2 who knows...

    No you don't. My HD 7850 runs 1440p just fine. You really have to be a sucker to spend $1000 on a single GPU.

    are u bashing him because he wants to buy a better card and on top of that, from nvidia?

    on another major hardware testing/review site, at 2500x1600 the Titan does perform close enough to the GTX690, without all the usual hassles with SLI. And for far cry 3 both the 690 and the Titan barely made it at that resolution.

    My personal experience is with Crysis 3 the situation with single card is even worse.

    Should I take out a mortgage or pass on this one?

    You have it backwards. AMD made out better than planned due to Kepler's problems and delays. Tom's had an article out yesterday on the dismal state of GPU sales:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/GPU-fourth-quarter-discrete-embedded-graphics-market,21194.html

    Anyway, AMD can't release a new generation every 12 months. TSCM makes the 28nm parts for both AMD and nVidia. However in the lastest case AMD got their parts(platters/chips) months before nVidia. All Kepler GPU's are less than a year old, some only a handful of months old. nVidia was in a bad pinch and they did something radical. They gutted the mid level GK104 of compute ability, boosting graphical processing power and it was able to compete against the Radeon 79XX series in gaming. So all said and done, it kind of worked out ok for nVidia! As they could have been really doomed.

    Who knows what will happen with the next generation. Maxwell and Volcanic Islands are the code names. But it's really in the hands of the fabrication companies. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing(TSCM) and their competitor, GlobalFoundries.

    Not everyone uses cards like this for games. In fact, it really is going to be a flagship for CUDA work. Except for the lack of ECC and a couple of other 'features' anyone who needs GPGPU work will find this card comes at 1/7 the cost of the K20X and performs just about as well (if not better). AMD does need to release more cards to increase competition, but right now we're lucky AMD isn't out of business the way they keep buring through cash and posting huge losses.

    Stop reporting about this overpriced garbage already. It's a niche card hardly anyone will buy......no one cares.

    >690 with fan slightly moved to the side.
    >EVGA's HCS. Exactly the same.

    Boooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing...

    No, you have to be rich, which you're not.

    Looks nice, price should be down in a year or two for a new gaming rig when the new kiddie consoles are in full swing and the new PC games (port jobs) are better.
