GIGABYTE Outs Its GeForce GTX Titan Graphics Card

Gigabyte announced its GeForce GTX Titan graphics card. Much like every other GTX Titan announced till now, it sticks to NVIDIA reference design. To spice things up, Gigabyte is tossing in a few extras from its Aivia line of gaming peripherals, by including a gaming mousepad, and a pack of Aivia-themed playing cards that you can also play "memory" with. Based on the 28 nm GK110 silicon, the GeForce GTX Titan features 2,688 CUDA cores, 224 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 6 GB of memory. The card features NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 837/876/6008 MHz (core/GPU Boost/memory). It should be priced at $1000 before taxes, $1100~$1200 after it.

Of course it's not worth it but you would be surprised the number of people who will buy these none the less. These high priced toys are for bragging rights.

Awww look, it comes with a pack of playing cards to practice poker in the hopes of winning back the $1000 you just dumped on a card that'll be obsolete in no time. Gigabyte does care! :D

Not that I would buy it, but if I were I would be glad I live in a state where there is no sales tax, no state income tax, and even happier that there are liquor stores on the highway and anywhere you would want one because after spending this much on a GPU, you're going to be wishing you had some liquor to forget how much it costed. :p

I agree! We too much TOLERATE these price politics, wtf are we doing?!

In my opinion, there is no advancement in the GPU field at all. The architecture is not advanced enough, it runs HOT, it makes small leaps in fps, consumes a lots of ENERGY and PLANETARY and HUMAN resources.

Culture and its values are not our friends.

i have nothing against cashing in on someone's excess money and/or idiocy. that's why i started playing poker.

if you don't have money to burn or are not an idiot, you won't pay them, that's all.

I was gonna make a joke about the playing cards, but has been said already.

They should offer a mouse with that pad.

I wouldn't buy it for that price even if it came with a free t-shirt... Especially since my last high end card only lasted a bit over 2 years. I purchased a high end with the thought of it being future proof for a few years not to have it die on me just outside it warranty period . Never again will I buy a high end card. Its mid range cards for me now.

I wouldn't even buy it unless it gave me enough stuff to offset the price to 750 USD and even then it will be a tough sell.
