Nvidia Corp. demonstrated its upcoming GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards in its booth at the Game Developers Conference and allowed the press to take pictures of the board. Just like its single-chip predecessors from the ultra-high-end league, the novelty uses an ultra-quiet cooler, is multi-GPU-capable and is not very power hungry. Moreover, the card is already in production.
Legit Reviews has published a lot of GeForce GTX Titan X’s photos and revealed some additional peculiarities about the graphics card that promises to be the fastest single-GPU graphics solution on the market for some time thanks to massive amount of stream processors, 12GB of GDDR5 memory and Nvidia’s “Maxwell” architecture.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X will continue to use blower-type dual-slot cooler introduced two years ago along with the original GeForce GTX Titan. The new cooler is completely black and has holographic word “Titan” embossed on it. The cooling solution is expected to remain very quiet and efficient. The length of the graphics card seems to be similar to that of its predecessors.
The new flagship graphics adapter from Nvidia has two MIO connectors for multi-GPU SLI configurations, one 6-pin PCIe and one 8-pin PCIe auxiliary power connectors, three DisaplyPort, one HDMI as well as one DVI output. This means that the graphics card can support 2-way, 3-way or 4-way SLI multi-GPU configurations (just because someone thinks that 3072 stream processors of the GM200 are not enough to play games fine and 12288 SPs are just what the doctor ordered) and will not consume more than 300W of power, which is not that lot by modern standards.
The graphics card, which Legit Reviews pictured, featured all the stickers typically found on commercial graphics cards that are in production. Therefore, Nvidia can probably start to ship the new Titan X graphics card shortly.
The card carries 24 GDDR5 memory chips and has a rather sophisticated voltage regulator module.

KitGuru Says: The new graphics board looks similar to predecessors and has comparable power consumption. Therefore, if your PC supports previous-gen Titan, it will also support the new Titan X.
