Up close and personal with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X

Our NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X is here, so we've snapped some photos to give you the best look at the Maxwell-powered beast yet.

Our review sample of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X is here, so we decided to snap some high-res shots of the entire card to give you the best look at it yet.

If you didn't see our post on it, NVIDIA's founder and CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, unveiled the card during Epic Games' GDC 2015 event. The company hosted its own 'Made to Game' event, but kept the Titan X under wraps for a few more hours. Even with GTC 2015 right around the corner, the company has shipped out Titan X samples to various people in the media, including TweakTown.

The new GeForce GTX Titan X is something truly special, as its built on the Maxwell architecture, compared to the Titan Black and Titan Z which were built on the older Kepler architecture. Maxwell has a long list of benefits and features, but one of the big ones is a massive reduction in power consumption and heat, but a nice boost in performance.

The Maxwell-based GeForce GTX Titan X has a huge 12GB of VRAM, which is a gigantic jump on the 4GB of framebuffer found on the GTX 980. The Titan Black has 6GB of VRAM, while the dual-GPU Titan Z had 12GB (but only 6GB per GPU). This is the largest amount of VRAM found on a consumer-ish GPU yet, something we can't wait to really stress test.

Let's dive into the card now, taking a look at it from all sides.

At the front, we have the usual blower-style cooler that we've seen on the recent Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 980, as well as the Kepler-based GTX 780.

On the back we can see 12 chips surrounding that sure-to-be powerful GM200 core, a total of 12GB of GDDR5 RAM.

The display output configuration is the same as the GTX 980, with three DisplayPort outputs, an HDMI 2.0 output, and a dual-link DVI out.

The GeForce GTX Titan X can be thrown into 4-way SLI, which will result in some truly next generation performance.

All of this arrives in a card that should have a 250W TDP, requiring a 6-pin + 8-pin PCIe power connectors.

There you have it. A quick look at the GeForce GTX Titan X before the big launch which will be happening soon. As for performance, we should expect 30-50% on top of what the GeForce GTX 980 is offering, as well as a huge increase in high-res situations thanks to its 12GB of VRAM.

It isn't long until NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference, and we'll be right there to deliver you to latest news from Team Green.
