My review of NVIDIA's new Titan X graphics card will be up in the next couple of hours, and it's completely glowing - due to the fact that the Pascal-based $1200 graphics card has amazing performance.

But, I like the push the boundaries of everything that I test, so I set up my triple 4K monitor rig and cranked the resolution up to 11,520 x 2160 and tested out the new Titan X to see if it would have the same ~20% or so performance benefit over the GP104-based GeForce GTX 1080. Well, I was wrong - it's faster than that, with a huge 51.4% lead in Heaven so far.

I'm currently testing a few other games at 11,520 x 2160 and will write a full article up once it's done - but for now, a 51.4% increase in Heaven at this mammoth resolution is making me weak at the knees.
