If you're looking to make a splash in your next high-end gaming rig and have the requisite funds, EVGA will tempt you with not one, but three different NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z graphic card options. There's the standard model, if you can use such a term to describe a dual-GPU beast like the Titan Z, as well as a Superclocked SKU and a version that comes with a Hydro Copper cooling solution for water cooling setups.

The Titan Z boasts two GPUs, 5,760 CUDA cores, 12GB of GDDR5 memory, and 672GB/s of memory bandwidth, to cover some of the highlights. It also uses a new dynamic power balancing technology to ensure peak performance across two GPUs with optimal power delivery. And yes, you can install two Titan Z cards and have yourself a quad SLI setup.

EVGA Titan Z Superclocked

EVGA's regular Titan Z (12G-P4-3990-KR) sticks to the reference design with base and boost clockspeeds of 705MHz and 876MHz, respectively, along with a 7000MHz clockspeed for the memory. If you opt for the SuperClocked model (12G-P4-3992-KR), EVGA gooses the base and boost clockspeeds to 732MHz and 915MHz, respectively.

EVGA Titan Z Hydro Copper

The Hydro Copper SKU (12G-P4-3999-KR) also comes factory overclocked with the base pushed to 758MHz and boost at 941MHz. Faster clockspeeds are made possible thanks to the Hydro Copper cooler, which sports a full cover design providing direct cooling to the GPUs, memory, and VRM, along with 1/4-inch threaded fittings on each side.

It's worth pointing out that EVGA warranties each of these cards for 3 years. Additionally, you can purchase extended 5-year and 10-year warranties. For cards that cost $500 and over (as the Titan Z cards do), the 5-year and 10-year extended warranty options cost $30 and $60, respectively.

EVGA is also know for its 90-day Step-Up program. If a newer card comes out with 90 days of purchase, you can use the Step-Up program to upgrade by paying the difference in price.

I've never actually purchased a newer high-end video card, the cost to performance ratio has always seemed too high. What does something like this go for, anyway?

These cards are going to cost $3000 and probably $3250~3500. If you want it for games, don't bother. If you want to use it for CUDA and still have space in your computer, consider getting two Titan Black cards which cost less and perform better. If you want it for CUDA computing because you already have the max number of cards your system can handle, this is the card for you.

Thanks: 2 times

GPU Prices are nuts.
