ASUS today announced GTX Titan Black, a graphics card powered by the brand-new GeForce GTX Titan Black graphics-processing unit (GPU) clocked at 980 MHz and bundled with exclusive GPU Tweak technology for advanced overclocking that's also accessible, simple and incredibly safe.

Fitted with 6 GB of super-fast GDDR5 video memory and further benefiting from NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 and G-SYNC technologies, GTX Titan Black is a powerhouse graphics card with a stylish black heatsink design for enthusiasts who demand supercharged visuals for the very best gaming experiences.





Exclusive tuning technology to push GTX Titan Black even further
GTX Titan Black is a powerhouse card that puts supercomputer-grade graphics power in the hands of enthusiasts - and with GPU Tweak enthusiasts can push the GeForce GTX Titan Black GPU even further.

GPU Tweak is an exclusive ASUS tool that gives users real-time fine control over GPU and video-memory clock speeds and voltages, cooling-fan speeds and power-consumption thresholds, all via an intuitive interface.

Additionally, the GPU Tweak Streaming tool lets users share on-screen action over the internet in real time, so others can watch live as games are played. It's even possible to add a title to the streaming window along with scrolling text, pictures and webcam images.

The new card also includes NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0, which lets users crank up the GTX Titan Black GPU's clock speed while allowing full control over the power and temperature - delivering faster visuals for a better gaming experience.

Super-smooth cinema-quality visuals that eliminate tearing
GTX Titan Black includes full support for the latest DirectX 11.2 standard. This enables allows on-GPU tessellation that delivers more and incredibly detailed geometry to be packed into every game scene - characters come to life with detail levels that rival blockbuster movies.

The card also has new NVIDIA G-SYNC technology built in, ready for the next generation of gaming. Connect GTX Titan Black to a G-SYNC-compatible display and it will synchronize its refresh rate to the GPU's render rate to provide stunning smoothness and ultra-fast response. The upshot for gamers is that tearing, graphics stutter and latency become a thing of the past - gaming has never felt this fluid.

ASUS Titan Black will be available worldwide from 18th February, 2014.

I was gonna wait it out and buy Titan black for my BLACK ASUS board...but when I found out they had the same heatsink, I got my two Ti cards for basically less than one of these costs. :p

Yet for some reason...I still want these. :p

How about four ?

Titan has been even worse than R9-290X when it comes to price hike. take a look at these figures on Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=node=284822&field-keywords=GTX titan&rh=n:284822,k:GTX titan
Meanwhile, on Newegg, the R9 290X hit $900, so I guess it depends on your circumstances. Of course the Out of Stock models are $699, so at least the ones you can't buy are cheaper

/silver lining
