NVIDIA finally puts $2,999 GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card on sale

NVIDIA first announced their massive GeForce GTX Titan Z graphics card in March, but today the company announced that the $2,999 product is now finally on sale as a stand alone add-on. In addition, a number of PC makers are now allowing customers to add the Titan Z as an option in their desktop rigs.


As a reminder, the Titan Z card has two Kepler-based GPUs, which have a combined total of 5,760 processing cores, along with 12GB of GDDR5 dedicated frame buffer memory. All of that hardware is placed inside a shiny aluminum case.

If you are in the market for a new PC gaming rig and want to buy with the Titan Z already inside, both ORIGIN PC and Maingear have announced they are letting customers add the massive card as an option in many of their desktop systems. Origin PC buyers can include the Titan Z in their Chronos, Millennium and Genesis rigs for an upgrade price of $3,251  for one card, or $6,677 for two Titan Z cards.

Maingear is including the Titan Z as an option in its SHIFT, F131, Vybe, Rush and Force desktop lines. It will cost $3,350 to add one of those big cards to those rigs or $6,900 for two Titan Z cards.

i just ordered an ORIGIN with TITAN BLACK.

Anyone have any comparisons yet? Will this thing make a significant difference using Lumion?
Something about double precision flops, blah blah blah... 8)

Maybe i should get the TITAN z put in!!

Any suggestions welcome. thanks.

It's a beast.  :o

The Titan Z is like the GTX 590's and 690's dual GPU.

Lumion does not access more than 1 GPU so Lumion would not benefit from the extra GPU, and still only access the core 6GB of VRAM.  There might be some other improvements in the card to make Lumion a tiny bit faster for the one GPU, but that is unknown.

It would be great for gaming and scientific applications.

It would seem more worthwhile to spend the difference between the Z and a Black to either put another Black or a GTX 780 Ti in the PC, or on part of another PC.  :)

Still waiting for the GTX 780 Ti with either 6GB or 12GB announced late last year  :(.

Was waiting too, but i think we can wait for a long time as for me it will probably never happen (IMHO) a 780ti with 6go would be to close to a Titan black. Who will buy their Titan after the release of such a graphic card ?
