NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB Video Card Review

Detailed Look




The NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X in all its glory.


On the front of the Titan X, we have the same blower cooling system that we have on the reference GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards. Compared to the Titan Black Edition, we have black styling versus the gray used on the original Titan.


The biggest difference between the GTX 980 and the Titan X is that the Titan X does not have a backplate, which some people have scolded NVIDIA for so far. I think the omission is good, as the backplate on the GTX 980 gets incredibly hot, and with the full GM200 core and a huge 12GB of VRAM, you want to get rid of as much heat as possible - so removing the backplate is a good move by NVIDIA in my opinion. We'll talk about temperatures and the feel of the card and its performance in a future article.




Display output wise we have what is turning into the usual Maxwell outputs: three DisplayPort outputs, an HDMI 2.0 port and a dual-link DVI port.




One of the surprising things, even for me, is that the Titan X is capable of 4-way SLI. With 12GB of VRAM, a 4-way setup is going to be the best setup you can have in your PC. Sure, the VRAM doesn't combine, but with the first card having 12GB, you'll never, ever run into a situation where you're pushing anywhere close to 12GB of VRAM. However, 4-way SLI support with a full GM200 core and 12GB of VRAM? We are living in amazing times, #pcmasterrace.
