NVIDIA Reveal GTX Titan Z - Two GPUs, One Card

At the GPU Technology Conference Keynote Address NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang took to the stage, showing off some of the brand new and upcoming technologies his team are bringing to the GPU Compute space in 2014 and beyond. Whilst also detailing inventions which won't be in the home until well into 2016, he also displayed the final flagship in the Kepler GPU product range, the GTX TITAN Z.

Implementing two GK110 GPUs on the same card, the GTX TITAN Z is designed for resolutions beyond 4K as well as being completely unlocked for compute capabilities. It's powered by a total of 5760 CUDA cores and is backed by 12GB GDDR5 RAM, and is also capable of running in SLI for a total of four GPUs and thus truly monstrous speeds.

The two GPUs are tuned at the same clock speed but power is balanced dynamically such that neither bottlenecks the other no matter the workload.

A reference with aluminium shroud and single radial fan is similar to that of the GTX 690, but low profile components and airflow ducts allow the card to remain cool and quiet.

Unfortunately the TITAN Z doesn't come cheap - sitting at $2,999 it's a pretty penny. There's no information on exactly when the card is due but it's unlikely to be very long, NVIDIA will likely aim to time the release to at least coincide with Intel's Haswell refresh in the first half of this year.
