Asus, Inno3D, MSI, Galaxy, Gainward, Gigabyte, Zotac, Palit and EVGA has all announced their implementations of Nvifdia's new flagship graphics card, the GTX Titan.
Nvidia's AIC partners are under strict directions not to modify GeForce GTX Titan board design, meaning that they had to stick in Nvidia's reference design and try to attract enthusiasts by offering either rich bundles, factory-overclocked versions and most interestingly, their own overclocking utilities, which take advantage of Nvidia's GPU Boost 2.0 technology allowing users to play with temperature, power targets, fan speed curvesand voltage.
Starting with Asus, their GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, which features NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 837/876/6008 MHz (core/GPU Boost/memory). Exclusive ASUS GPU Tweak integrates into this package, offering even more detailed graphics card performance modification options. You may change core and memory clocks, voltages, and fan speeds, plus create dedicated profiles for differentgames and applications. Global release of the Asus Titan card is scheduled for 25 February, 2013 at a recommended retail price US$1000.
Inno3D's, Gainward's and Palit's GeForce GTX Titan graphics cards feature Nvidia's sleek exterior of cast aluminum and chromium plating. They also run at default speeds and are expected to be available at the same ~$1000 price range.
Possibly NVIDIA's highest volume AIC partners, Galaxy, also announced its GeForce GTX Titan offering. Galaxy's offering is no different from any other among NVIDIA's partners - it features NVIDIA reference clock speeds and will be priced around $1000.
MSI's GeForce GTX Titan bundle includes the 'Live Update' and the 'Afterburner' overclocking software. Besides these, it features NVIDIA-reference clock speeds and it is priced at $1000 before taxes.
Gigabyte's GeForce GTX Titan graphics card also sticks to NVIDIA reference design, but the company is offering a few extras from its Aivia line of gaming peripherals - a gaming mousepad and a pack of Aivia-themed playing cards.
EVGA's upcoming GTX Titan Signature SC HydroCopper graphics card (model: 06G-P4-2795-KR) will be possibly the first GTX Titan with a full coverage water block pre-installed co-developed by Swiftech.
The card will most probably be factory overclocked and its package will include a t-shirt, a gaming poster and a mouse pad.
EVGA didn't disclose its price, but it could be a little bit higher than rest GTX Titan's. EVGA will also offer non-overclocked versions of the card.
In any case, Nvidia's GTX Titan graphics card is a premium offering aimed at enthusiasts who are seeking the highest possibly performance out of a single-GPU graphics card and of course, they are willing to pay for it. Titan is purposely removed from the price/performance curve as it is an luxury product.
To give you an idea of the gaming performance (2560x1440) you may expect from the GTX Titan, it is more 40-50% faster than the GTX 680, 10-15% slower than the dual-GPU GTX 690, 30-50% faster than AMD's single-GPU R7970GE and 15-30% slower than the dual-GPU AMD R7990.
