NVIDIA Could Review GTX TITAN-Z Pricing for the Retail Channel

Under pressure from its own recently launched GeForce GTX 980 cannibalizing its $3,000 flagship GeForce GTX TITAN-Z (you can buy GTX 980 Quad-SLI at $2,200), NVIDIA could finally review its pricing, in the retail channel. The company recently reduced its price for the OEM channel, letting pre-built gaming PC manufacturers source the card at a lower price, whether those price-savings were transferred to the end-users, is a different question. To what measure NVIDIA could lower prices of the GTX TITAN-Z, is not known at this point. Retailers like OCUK were seen offering their GTX TITAN-Z cards at a slightly reduced price, last week. Across the big pond, American retailer Newegg sold-out an ASUS-branded GTX TITAN-Z for as low as US $1,500.

In the wake of GTX 980, AMD cut prices of its dual-GPU flagship product, the Radeon R9 295X2, down to $999. It's hard to imagine that competition from this card, and the GTX 980, are the only factors driving down prices of the GTX TITAN-Z in such a big way. Could NVIDIA be working on its next dual-GPU flagship graphics card already? Perhaps one based on a pair of GM204 chips, with thermal and power requirements as low as those of the GTX 690? Watch this space for more.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 has Three DisplayPort Connectors: G-Sync Surround!

With its next-generation GeForce GTX 980 graphics card, NVIDIA has taken the initiative to help phase out DVI, the digital display connector that has had its reign since the dawn of flatscreen monitors. In its place, NVIDIA is promoting DisplayPort. A picture of the rear I/O shield of a GeForce GTX 980 graphics card reveals that the card features no less than five display connectors, a staggering three DisplayPorts, and one each of HDMI 2.0 and dual-link DVI (with analog/VGA pins for compatibility with D-Sub only monitors). The rear vent pattern has been revamped to triangles, so vents can be cut through in vacant spaces between the connectors, without compromising on the shield's structural rigidity. This pattern made its debut with the dual-GPU GeForce GTX TITAN-Z.

Radeon R9 290X Sees Price Cuts

AMD is apparently working with its add-in board manufacturers and retailers to bring down prices of its flagship single-GPU graphics card, the Radeon R9 290X. The card can now be had for as low as $449, non-reference design, factory-overclocked cards starting at a $50 premium. Prices could settle down somewhere between $450 and $500. This closely follows AMD's move to bring down price of its dual-GPU flagship Radeon R9 295X2 by a whopping 34 percent, down to $999, offering performance competitive to the $2999 GeForce GTX TITAN-Z. NVIDIA is preparing two new graphics cards competitive in performance to the Radeon R9 290 series, the GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980. The two are based on the company's new 28 nm "GM204" silicon, implementing the "Maxwell" GPU architecture.

NVIDIA Cuts GeForce GTX TITAN-Z Price by 37 Percent, But for OEMs Only

With a price-tag of US $2,999, the GeForce GTX TITAN-Z from NVIDIA is the most expensive consumer graphics card in recent times. You needn't be a Vulcan to tell that it's overpriced by a lot, and that NVIDIA is selling these cards at a gargantuan margin. In a bid to see more system builders sell the card to their high-paying customers, NVIDIA cut prices of the card, by as much as 37 percent. An OEM partner will now be able to source a GTX TITAN-Z from NVIDIA for as less as $1,830. What they do with the cards - such as charging the full $2,999 for the option, is their business. DIY users will still have to cough up three grand for one of these illogical cards.

Drivers Holding Back GTX TITAN-Z Launch

It turns out that drivers are holding back launch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX TITAN-Z flagship graphics card. That's not to say that drivers for the card don't exist. When tested with ones that do, performance numbers yielded by Hong Kong-based tech print magazine E-Zone, reveal that the card trades blows with AMD's R9 295X2 in too many tests to warrant double its price at $2,999; and that it's also slower in some. The only way NVIDIA can sell the GTX TITAN-Z at that price, is by either making it significantly faster, or reducing the price. It looks like NVIDIA is trying the former, and not by tinkering with hardware specifications, but drivers. NVIDIA believes it can yet salvage the $2,999 pricing of the GTX TITAN-Z, by developing drivers that make the card convincingly faster than AMD's $1,499 offering. Retailers and distributors are being told not to sell their GTX TITAN-Z inventory until NVIDIA releases these drivers. The company didn't mention a date to these retailers. Given its track-record with performance-enhancing drivers, one can give NVIDIA the benefit of doubt. It may yet prevent a "GTX TITANIC-Z" from happening.

$2,999 Price of GeForce GTX TITAN-Z Not Justifiable: Review

Here's why NVIDIA still hasn't launched the GeForce GTX TITAN-Z at the $2,999 price-point it so boldly announced at GTC 2014 - it's not worth its price by a long shot, at least not when stacked up against the Radeon R9 295X2, according to a review published by Hong Kong based print magazine E-Zone. In most tests, the two are evenly matched, with the R9 295X2 even outperforming it by a significant margin in some. In tests where the GTX TITAN-Z leads the R9 295X2, the lead isn't significant, at least nowhere close to justifying its price. The only way NVIDIA can sell the GTX TITAN-Z, if these numbers hold true, is by delivering on its 375W TDP figure.

The review finds that a system running a single GTX TITAN-Z draws 33W less power than the same system running two GTX 780 Ti cards in SLI, and 60W less power than the same system running a single R9 295X2 (tested at FireStrike Extreme load). Unless you plan on future-proofing yourself for the next decade, the lower power draw doesn't justify the $1,500 higher price. So what explains the delay in launching the GTX TITAN-Z? Either a redesign with higher clocks (and proportionately higher power draw), or development of faster drivers.

New GTX TITAN-Z Launch Details Emerge

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX TITAN-Z missed the bus on its earlier 29th April, 2014 launch date, which was confirmed to the press by several retailers, forcing some AIC partners to content with paper-launches of cards bearing their brand. It turns out that the delay is going to be by just a little over a week. The GeForce GTX TITAN-Z is now expected to be available on the 8th of May, 2014. That will be when you'll be able to buy the US $3,000 graphics card off the shelf.

A dual-GPU graphics card based on a pair of 28 nm GK110 GPUs, the GTX TITAN-Z features a total of 5,760 CUDA cores (2,880 per GPU), 480 TMUs (240 per GPU), 96 ROPs (48 per GPU), and a total of 12 GB of GDDR5 memory, spread across two 384-bit wide memory interfaces. Although each of the two GPUs is configured identical to a GTX TITAN Black, it features lower clock speeds. The core is clocked at 705 MHz (889 MHz on the GTX TITAN Black), with GPU Boost frequencies of up to 876 MHz (up to 980 MHz on the GTX TITAN Black); while the memory remains at 7.00 GHz. The card draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and its maximum power draw is rated at 375W. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up against the Radeon R9 295X2 by AMD, which costs half as much, at $1,500.

GeForce GTX TITAN-Z Market Availability Delayed?

NVIDIA's flagship dual-GPU graphics card, the GeForce GTX TITAN-Z, was expected to go on sale later today. That launch is now delayed, according to a SweClockers report. The three thousand Dollar question is why. According to some sources, NVIDIA is effecting a last minute design change that sees a meatier cooler on the card, than the one Jen-Hsun Huang rafikied to the press at GTC 2014.

There may have been a last-minute realization at Santa Clara, that the card - as presented at GTC - may not cut it in the ring against AMD's Radeon R9 295X2, or at least it won't be able to warrant its vulgar $3000 price tag, against the R9 295X2's $1500; despite AMD's rather messy three-piece approach to its liquid-cooled product (the card itself, a radiator, and coolant tubing), and so NVIDIA could be redesigning the GTX TITAN-Z with an even bigger cooler, to facilitate higher clock speeds.

Inno3D Readies iChill HerculeZ Cooler for GTX TITAN-Z

For those not sold on the looks or performance of NVIDIA's reference cooler for its GeForce GTX TITAN-Z graphics card, Inno3D is readying an iChill HerculeZ air cooler for the card. Pictured below, the cooler consists of a densely packed aluminium fin stack shared by two bases and their heat pipes. A base plate is in charge of cooling the memory, VRM, and bridge chip. With restrictions in place for coming up with custom-design variants of the GTX TITAN-Z, barring those with factory-fitted water blocks, Inno3D could take GIGABYTE's route in including its cooler with a reference-design board, and instructions for end-users replace the cooler by themselves. NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN-Z is expected to hit stores on Tuesday, the 29th of April, 2014; prices start at US $2999.

GeForce GTX TITAN-Z Market Availability Detailed

NVIDIA's upcoming flagship graphics card, the dual-GPU GeForce GTX TITAN-Z, could see the light of the day (well, lights of a hardware store/warehouse), on April 29, 2014. That's when you'll be able to buy the card from ground stores off the shelf, or order one online. It's expected to stick to the price NVIDIA announced when it was unveiled at GTC 2014, which is a wallet-scorching US $2,999 (excl. taxes). Depending on your country's taxation and import excise, you could be paying anywhere between 10 and 33 percent over that. In Japan, for instance, the card is expected to be priced around 400,000¥ (incl. taxes), which converts to about $3,900.

The GeForce GTX TITAN-Z is a dual-GPU graphics card with a pair of 28 nm GK110 GPUs. The chips are configured to feature all 2,880 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs, and 48 ROPs at their disposal; and are each wired to 6 GB of GDDR5 memory across their 384-bit wide memory interfaces, totaling 12 GB on the card. The best part? Unlike AMD's Radeon R9 295X2, the GTX TITAN-Z is air-cooled. Just be ready with three slots in your system, and give up on your dream of equipping your ITX rig with it.
