NVIDIA has officially unleashed the second generation NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition featuring a 28nm GK110 core silicon with full double precision floating point GPGPU performance and promises to be faster than the GTX 780 Ti. It features a full 2,880 CUDA cores with 48 ROPs, 240 TMUs and 6GB of GDDR5 memory in a 384-bit memory interface. Check out the rest of its features and full specifications below.
UPDATE: Added price and where to buy below.
The first GeForce GTX Titan was released last year in the same month, and was the fastest single chip graphics card back then. Despite the high price of the super computer GTX Titan, it was still a more popular choice compared to the GTX 690. Unfortunately it’s reign did not last, as the more cheaper and faster GTX 780 Ti surface and replaced its throne.
Now the Titan is back with its second generation GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition, offering faster performance than the GTX 780 Ti. It features a full double precision unlock cores with speeds of 5.1 Teraflops single precision and 1.3 Teraflops double precision. The 2,880 CUDA cores has a base clock of 889MHz and a boost clock of 980 MHz, while the 6GB GDDR5 memory has an effective memory clock speed of 7Gbps. It has a thermal design power of 250W and draws its power from a 6pin+8pin power connector.
Like the first generation Titan, it has a suggested retail price of $999 USD. If you look at the performance chart below, its performance is not that far from the GTX 780 Ti, but their price difference is big. This wouldn’t make sense at all for a PC gamer – huge price difference for a little amount of performance gain. Basically, the Titan Black Edition is geared towards developers and content creators, although it can be used for gaming purposes. Meanwhile the GTX 780 Ti, despite being slightly slower than the Titan Black Edition, is still the best choice for gamers.
