NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Introduction:
After taking a stroll through the feature set and visuals of NVIDIA's GTX Titan, it's time to put it to the test to find out if indeed it is a Titan (pun intended) among video cards. Packing a full 2688 CUDA cores in its five Graphics Processing Clusters, it is equipped with the feature gamers have been clamoring for: a larger frame buffer size. To that end the GTX Titan is equipped with a 6GB frame buffer running through a 384-bit bus for the most memory bandwidth available on an NVIDIA graphics card. This helps drive performance when using maximum settings in games along with running larger resolutions, including up to 4K.
When you look at the feature set, the GK110-equipped GTX Titan is geared strictly towards the gamer and has the graphics power to run the entire NVIDIA Ecosystem off of a single card equipped with a single GPU. Packing two, three, or four into a supporting motherboard should provide the ability to run every game on the market at maximum settings; in other words, as NVIDIA states, a Tri-SLI equipped system can run Crysis 3 at maximum settings using a surround resolution of 5760x1080. It's been an ongoing joke over the years but the holy grail was to run Crysis with maximum settings. Here we have a solution that purports to do just that.
It's time to get past the mindless banter and see what the GTX Titan can really deliver as a gaming video card and decide whether or not it is the world's most powerful GPU.
