Introducing GeForce GTX TITAN Z: Ultimate Power

Featured Stories, Hardware

GeForce GTX TITAN Z

GeForce GTX TITAN and GeForce GTX TITAN Black stormed the industry by offering supercomputer class performance to enthusiast gamers, for the most demanding titles. On the desktop, they delivered unmatched gaming performance on 3840x2160 “4K” screens, whilst remaining cool and quiet with industry-leading power efficiency.

For researchers, scientists and other CUDA developers, meanwhile, GTX TITAN GPUs delivered unparalleled double-precision computational performance that can be found beneath your feet in a traditional PC chassis.

GeForce GTX TITAN Z - The Ultimate CUDA Development Platform

Today, we unleash the fastest and most advanced graphics card we’ve ever made: the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN Z. A technical masterpiece, designed from top to bottom for record breaking performance, the innovatively-designed GTX TITAN Z has 12 GB of 7 Gbps video memory, 5,760 CUDA Cores, and two GK110 GTX TITAN Black GPUs to power 3840x2160, max setting gaming experiences in the latest and greatest games.

Innovative Design, From Silicon To Shroud

To push the limits of GPU technology to new heights, GTX TITAN Z’s record breaking silicon is encased in an all-new, custom-made cooler that sits at the cutting edge of design. For starters, the exterior is comprised entirely of aluminum, providing utmost strength, durability, and heat dissipation.

The all-important centrally-mounted axial fan is 40% thicker than GTX TITAN Black’s, and was specially optimized with custom fin pitch and air entry angles to minimize noise and maximize cooling efficiency. At full speed, airflow peaks at 33 cubic feet per minute.

Beneath the fan, on an aluminum heat-dissipation plate placed above the VRAM, we’ve introduced ducted channels that improve airflow, minimizing turbulence, and improving acoustic qualities.

Flanking the fan are dual vapor chambers attached to 500 square inch extended fin stacks, featuring 60% more surface area than GTX TITAN Black, to draw heat away from components and towards the aluminum exterior.

Beneath sits the GTX TITAN Z’s dual GK110 GTX TITAN Black GPUs, and our revolutionary 12-phase dynamic power balancing technology that ensures peak performance at all times.

In the past, exactly half of the power was routed to each GPU. However, depending on variations in cooling, workload and manufacturing process, one GPU may have required more power than the other. Now, we dynamically route power to each GPU, ensuring each is fully optimized.

Lining the exterior of the GeForce GTX TITAN Z PCB are 12 Gigabytes (GB) of record-breaking 7 Gigabits Per Second (Gbps) GDDR5 Video RAM, ensuring ultra-high resolutions gaming systems and large CUDA workloads have enough memory.
