Nvidia reveals details about the Titan-Z

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z

NVIDIA began the GPU Technology conference today by revealing the GeForce GTX TITAN Z. This card has two GK110 GPU’s  together on to a single card giving it a total of 5760 CUDA cores and 12GB of on board ram!! NVIDIA is currently saying this card is capable of 8 TeraFLOPS and is made for 5K gaming!

The design looks kind of like a  Titan, but they moved the fan from the rear of the card to the middle. Don’t get too excited unless you’ve got $3000 to spend on it ;)

Zotac Announces its newest creattion: The GeForce GTX 750 Ti Thunderbolt Graphics Card

Zotac GeForce GTX 750 Ti Thunderbolt

Zotac has just announced their GeForce GTX 750 Ti Thunderbolt Graphics Card. Word is Zotac are releasing this only to China, but if I know my Chinese , they will find a way to get this to the states, they are known for that.

The card features a much more robust cooling solution, a much more stronger VRMss and  just a much better overall product design than Zotac’s reference 750 Ti card. The name Thunderbolt has nothing to do with the Thunderbolt interface either. The new cooler design  features a dual 90 mm hybrid  fans that sit on top of a big aluminum heatsink that has heatpipes. The whole cooling solution is covered by a nice clean aluminum shroud.

Most of you that are into bitcoin mining will just want to know the bottom line numbers. Here you go: It comes overclocked from Zotac at speeds of 1229 MHz core, 1320 MHz boost and 6000 Mhz memory. When compared to the reference GTX 750 Ti speeds of 1020/1085 (boost)/5400 MHz. This will make it the highest factory overclocked GeForce GTX 750 Ti to date. It is expected to be priced at  around $195 US, if/when it reaches the states.


GALAXY GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF V20 first look

GALAXY has unveiled their GeForce GTX 780 Ti Hall of Fame Edition which features a very unique white PCB and having an impressive power design that will take overclocking to unheard of levels. This card is so powerful, that it set a 3DMark world record in FireStrike Extreme with some insane clock speeds using LN2 cooling.

GALAXY GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF V20

The Galaxy GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF V20 makes use of the GK110-425-B1 chip that’s fully unlocked providing you 2880 CUDA cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory running across a 384-bit interface. We know this card will be overclocked, but the exact clocks are unknown at the moment. To achieve the 3DMark FireStrike Extreme world record overclocker MadTse pushed the card to 1886 MHz core and 2000 MHz memory (8GHz effective).

The card will probably have an all white PCB, which we’ve seen on most of the Hall of Fame cards from Galaxy. The PCB has 16 phases for the core, 2 phases for the memory and 3 phases for the PLL. The PCB makes use of high-end Panasonic tantalum capacitors, so it should be very stable. The pic shows KEMET tantalum capacitors with a capacity of 330uF and MDU3606 MOSFETs from Magnachip. The memory and power delivery components will have their own heatsinks, and THAT rocks!!  Power to the card will come in the way of dual 8pins pci-e and a single 6pin pci-e connector which means the card will have a TDP of around 300W. If it perfroms as good as it looks, it will be a winner!

GALAXY GeForce GTX 780 Ti HOF V20

Galaxy has not revealed details about the cooler for this card, but are we expecting it to similar to their last HOF card which featured a dual fan cooler and impressive heatsink design. If users want extra power,  Galaxy will be shipping an additional power supply module by having an 8 phase PWM with its own pair of voltage adjustments and tuning points. No word yet on pricing or when this card will soon be available.

Nvidia Titan Black


Often the announcement of a brand new flagship desktop graphics card is a chance for Nvidia to brag about having the “fastest card ever, ” but things are a little different with the new GeForce GTX Titan Black. While it should indeed be a superior performer to the original Titan, launched last year, the company hasn’t even pumped out a pr release extolling its virtues (though it does devote a webpage to the Titan Black on its GeForce website).

A quick look at the specs provides some explanation as to Nvidia’s “silent launch” of the Titan Black. That’s because there’s perhaps not a whole lot different about the Titan sequel, though clock speeds are a tick higher (from 837MHz to 889MHz core clock, 876MHz to 980MHz boost clock, and 6GHz to 7GHz video memory clock) and there are a few more stream processors (2880, up from 2688) and texture units (240 instead of 224).

The major upgrade is the amount of GDDR5 video RAM, with the Titan Black offering two times as much (6GB) as the original Titan (or the more gamer-friendly GeForce GTX 780 Ti). All told, AnandTech estimates a performance improvement of roughly 15 per cent over the Titan Black’s predecessor.

The good news is that the extra graphics memory and faster performance is available for the same price as the original Titan. The bad news is, well, the price — $999. That’s probably still another reason Nvidia is choosing to tout its new GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti budget cards today instead of the Titan Black.

Nvidia’s stealthy launch hasn’t deterred boutique PC builders from embracing the new card, with several racing to announce that their desktops are available with the Titan Black. For instance, Origin PC is providing it in three different systems, while Digital Storm is making the Titan Black available in four desktop lines. AVADirect and Velocity Micro are also making it an alternative for their high-performance PCs.
