GTC 2015: If you’ve been under a rock for a while, then you’ve missed out on something huge happening within the market and for the most part we’re probably sure that you’ve heard about the new NVIDIA GTX TITAN X launching in some capacity or another.
If we cast our minds back only a short while to GDC, you’ll remember that NVIDIA unveiled the TITAN X graphics card, but while a lot was said about the card, there were still so many unanswered questions, including pricing, availability and much more.
Scroll forward to the present day, and CEO and owner Jen-Hsun answered these questions and officially introduced the TITAN X graphics card at this years GTC 2015 event. While he took to the stage, a promotional video was played showing us the new card in all of its glory, but one of the main speculative questions on everyone’s lips came down to pricing.
Some were basing pricing off of the TITAN Z that launched at last GTC in 2014, expecting the new TITAN X to be at least $2000, but with a shock moment and a stunned audience, the pricing of $999 came to light.
While $999 is considered ridiculously expensive by some, you have to remember that this is the world’s fastest GPU on the market with 8 billion transistors, 3072 CUDA cores, and a whopping 12GB of memory. This card allows 4K high quality gaming to be an easy task with room to spare and something that we are definitely looking forward to testing out.
