GIGABYTE joined several other NVIDIA add-in board partners, in announcing its GeForce GTX TITAN-Z graphics card. GIGABYTE's card sticks to NVIDIA reference design, and consists of a meaty cooler scaled up from that of the GTX 690. Under its hood, the GTX TITAN-Z packs a pair of fully unlocked GK110 graphics processors in an internal SLI configuration, and wired to a total of 12 GB of GDDR5 memory. The card draws power from just a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of DisplayPort and HDMI. The card is designed for ultra high-end builds with up to three Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) displays in 3D Vision Surround setups. It commands a $3,000 price.

I wouldn't stand by the phone waiting for orders of these pointless cards that are inferior and impractical for virtually everyone. Nvidia will try to exploit universities and others who are foolish enough to be locked into CUDA. If they are spending your money you should have a vote and the obvious choice is NO WAY IN HELL.

Inferior? How is this card inferior?

LOL. To play Zuma or Crazy Birds maybe, but definitely not the latest graphic intensive games. It cannot even output 60fps on one 4K monitor and you are talking about 3x 4K monitors?? Hilarious! :)))
