NVIDIA Shows off the $999 GTX Titan

Popular graphics card manufacturer NVidia today revealed the Nvidia GTX Titan, a beast of a graphics card both in power and price. Billed as a GPU for supercomputers the GTX Titan's true triumph is its efficiency and size. It generates less heat, consumes less power, runs quieter and is small enough to fit into compact PCs. The Nvidia GTX Titan contains 2,688 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR5 RAM, and 7.1 billion transistors and will be available starting on February 25. Far too rich for my blood but in a year or two these powerful cards should trickle down from the cutting edge PC enthusiasts to the regular gamers like me. More Information - NVidia GTX Titan

The system is powered by Nvidia's new quad-core Tegra 4 chip, has 5-inch 720p multi-touch display, wi-fi connectivity and integrated display. I am not sold on its clam-shell design and I'd describe it the product of a Xbox, Ps3, 3DS and Wii-U mating session. However, this is the most exciting but of gaming hardware news in a while, lets see how it develops. More details: shield.nvidia.com
