Nvidia Corp.’s latest ultra-high-end graphics cards offer unbeatable performance and do not really have direct rivals. Unfortunately, when it comes to prices, not everything looks truly good, especially in Europe. Fortunately, stores like Overclockers UK and their partners this week offer substantial discounts on Nvidia’s flagship product.
The suggested retail price of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card is £899 in the U.K. Many graphics boards cost more because they come with custom cooling systems and are factory-overclocked, some adapters cost a little less to attract attention. For a limited time only, OcUK, Palit and Zotac will offer their GeForce GTX Titan X graphics cards for £799.
All flagship Titan X graphics boards are made by a contract manufacturer under Nvidia’s supervision. The company then sells add-in-boards to its partners, which is why all GeForce GTX Titan X graphics adapters look similar. As a result it does not really matter what brand name does a Titan X carry: they are all equally good from quality point of view.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X is based on the GM200 graphics processing unit with 3072 stream processors, 192 texture mapping units, 96 raster operations pipelines and 384-bit bus. All Titan X graphics cards are equipped with 12GB of GDDR5 memory operating at 7GHz.
Keeping in mind that initial demand for Nvidia’s new flagship is over, there is GeForce GTX 980 Ti that offers similar performance and there is AMD’s Radeon Fury incoming, it is about time for resellers to start reconsidering premium prices of the GeForce GTX Titan X.

KitGuru Says: Without any doubts, the GeForce GTX Titan X remains a very expensive solution. Still, it is good to see that prices are getting a little bit lower.
