The Titan Z is “inspired” by supercomputers like the Cray Titan.
Nvidia has launched its next generation of graphics cards, called the GeForce GTX Titan Z card, at the company’s annual GPU Technology Conference, marking an entry into the dual-GPU/single-card market.
Incorporating 12GB frame buffer memory and a pair of Kepler’s GK110 GPUs, the new card is powered by 5,760 processing cores, or 2,880 cores per GPU.
Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said: "If you’re in desperate need of a supercomputer that you need to fit under your desk, we have just the card for you."
According to the company, Titan Z’s twin GPUs run at the same clock speed, which together with Nvidia’s dynamic power balancing reportedly assures that there’s no performance bottleneck.
The low-profile components and ducted base plate channels also allow it to run cool and generate less sound.
Together with the GeForce GTX Titan Z card, Nvidia also launched Jetson TK1 software development platform, Iray VCA, 3D Memory and Unified Memory among other announcements.
