NVIDIA Introduces GeForce GTX TITAN: DNA of the World's Fastest Supercomputer, Powered by World's Fastest GPU

NVIDIA Introduces GeForce GTX TITAN: DNA of the World's Fastest Supercomputer, 
Powered by World's Fastest GPU 
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/19/13 --  NVIDIA today
introduced the new GeForce(R) GTX(TM) TITAN, powered by the fastest
GPU on the planet(1) and designed to unleash the world's fastest
gaming PCs including personal gaming supercomputers and svelte,
quiet, small form-factor PCs. 
"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(TM) 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. 
By harnessing the power of 3 GeForce GTX TITAN GPUs simultaneously in
3-way SLI(R) mode, gamers can max out every visual setting without
fear of a meltdown while playing any of the most demanding PC gaming
Designed with unsurpassed craftsmanship, GeForce GTX TITAN features
an array of innovative technologies complemented by sleek materials
that contribute to the exotic design of the card, including a
high-quality exterior aluminum frame and high efficiency vapor
chamber cooling. Overall, GeForce GTX TITAN's aesthetic design evokes
the spirit of a supercomputer and the enormous capability within: a
blistering-fast GPU and astonishing graphics horsepower that is
delivered with the power efficiency that only Kepler-class GPUs can
With its advanced thermal and acoustic characteristics, GeForce GTX
TITAN is also perfect for powering the new wave of small form-factor
gaming PCs. So gamers no longer have to make the choice between
performance and size -- they can have both at the same time. 
"GeForce GTX TITAN will allow us to create the nearly-impossible
product our customers have wanted for years: a ridiculously fast,
tiny system that you barely know is running," said Kelt Reeves, CEO
of Falcon Northwest. 
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(TM) 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

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. 
GeForce GTX TITAN will also be sold in fully configured systems from
leading U.S.-based system builders, including AVADirect, Cyberpower,
Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, Geekbox, IBUYPOWER, Maingear, Origin
PC, Puget Systems, V3 Gaming, Velocity Micro, and other system
integrators outside North America.

 NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) awakened the world to computer
graphics when it invented the GPU in 1999. Today, its processors
power a broad range of products from smartphones to supercomputers.
NVIDIA's mobile processors are used in cell phones, tablets and auto
infotainment systems. PC gamers rely on GPUs to enjoy spectacularly
immersive worlds. Professionals use them to create 3D graphics and
visual effects in movies and to design everything from golf clubs to
jumbo jets. And researchers utilize GPUs to advance the frontiers of
science with high performance computing. The company has more than
5,000 patents issued, allowed or filed, including ones covering ideas
essential to modern computing. For more information, see
(1) Based on the results of testing a dozen games and benchmarks
testing GTX TITAN against other single GPU products including GTX 680
and HD 7970. GTX TITAN is faster in all twelve tests ranging from 21
percent to 117 percent. All games and benchmarks were tested at a
resolution of 2560x1600 with 4xAA/16xAF settings.
