World’s fastest graphics card 2014 – nVidia GeForce GTX Titan Black

Fast and powerful yet cool and quiet. No, that’s not Chuck Norris in person but the Chuck Norris of graphics cards: the supercomputer-inspired-GK110 GPU, Kepler-driven nVidia GeForce GTX Titan Black.

The original Titan packed 2688 CUDA cores; the Titan Black has 2880. The original Titan had stock and boost clocks of 837MHz and 876MHz respectively; the Titan Black powers up to 889MHz and 980MHz.

Gamers with the deepest pockets will gloat that the Titan Black not only incorporates the impressive features of the GTX780 Ti but even betters it with 3GB extra GDDR5 VRAM. Even if/when the 6GB version of the GTX780 Ti is launched, the double precision floating point compute capability of the Titan Black will top the charts in 4k gaming.

Work hard, play hard

The original Titan was aimed at the hard-core graphics processing required in 3D design rendering and high end video editing. The Titan Black works even harder but now you can also use it to up your score during those sneaky game breaks you’re not really allowed to take at work.

Some would say that the GTX Titan Black is an overkill. A bit like using a Lamborghini Huracán to go get bread and milk at the local shop. Then again, if you actually did own a Huracán, wouldn’t you do just that?!

World’s fastest graphics card 2014 

In 2012, the world’s fastest graphics card was the GTX690. In 2013, the GTX780 Ti held that coveted title. Now the GTX Titan Black holds the honour.

If you’re lucky enough to have Titan Black (or two or even three Titan Blacks), enjoy the ride!
