NVIDIA today introduced the new GeForce GTX TITAN, the world’s fastest GPU.

When benchmarked against other single GPU products including GTX 680 and HD 7970, the GTX TITAN performed 21% to 117% better in all twelve tests running at a resolution of 2560x1600 with 4xAA/16xAF settings.

"GeForce GTX TITAN is a beast of a GPU -- and the only one in the world powerful enough to play any game at any resolution at any time," said Scott Herkelman, general manager of the GeForce business unit at NVIDIA. "And yet, all of this immense power is housed in a sleek, sexy design, so gamers can also build beautifully-designed PC gaming machines about the size of a gaming console, yet magnitudes more powerful and always upgradeable."

GTX TITAN is built with the same NVIDIA Kepler architecture that powers Oak Ridge National Laboratory's newly launched Titan supercomputer, which is number 1 in the list of the Top500 supercomputers in the world.

The GeForce GTX TITAN:
• Contains 7 billion transistors
• Has 2,668 GPU cores -- 75% more than the Company's NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 GPU
• Delivers 4.5 Teraflops of single precision and 1.3 Teraflops of double precision processing power
• Supports new GPU Boost 2.0 technology which automatically boosts graphics performance and supports unlocked voltage and advanced controls for even more gaming control and overclocking customization
• Can be combined with additional GTX TITANs in SLI mode for even more performance

The GeForce GTX TITAN GPU will be available starting on February 25, 2013 from NVIDIA's add-in card partners, including ASUS and EVGA in North America, and additional partners, including Colorful, Galaxy, Gigabyte, INNO 3D, MSI, Palit and Zotac outside the US. Partner participation will vary by region. Pricing is expected to start at $999 USD.
