Continuing its TITAN legacy, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX TITAN X gives the gaming world its latest drool-worthy top-end offering. With sights on 4K gaming, TITAN X gives us a sleek black card that boasts 3,072 CUDA cores and an absurd 12GB framebuffer on a 384-bit bus. Words are not needed – let’s dive in.

It’s that time again, when we’re able to talk about a brand-new “world’s fastest” graphics card. This one shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as we posted a super-quick look at it about two weeks ago.
The events that led up to this point are kind of interesting. Originally, NVIDIA wasn’t planning to unveil its GeForce GTX TITAN X until its GPU Technology Conference kicked-off this week. A change of plans came when Epic Games had some aptly epic VR demos to show off at San Francisco’s Game Developers Conference earlier this month. NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang then deemed that to be the better event to announce the card at.
At the time of its announcement, I didn’t realize just how quickly the TITAN X would launch – I had even noted that it could be a month or two out. To my surprise, a sample arrived just two days later. Somehow, I received the card almost a week ahead of most other editors, but that advance didn’t mean I could get to benchmarking right away: NVIDIA didn’t give us a working driver until last Thursday, and with GTC trips coming up, I can’t imagine many editors were thrilled about it.
I admit that I would have appreciated more time, but as Mother Nature saw it fit to delay my outgoing flight for GTC, I managed to get more testing done than I initially expected. That said, this is going to be a more abbreviated look than usual, and as such, I am focusing on what’s important: 4K results. In lieu of benchmarking at smaller resolutions, which TITAN X can eat like a snack, I tackled some other neat tests which I think are more valuable.
That’s enough preamble; let’s get into the heart of this thing.
