NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN: specs and benchmarks
NVIDIA started GeForce GTX TITAN sales 19 February 2013 at a recommended price of $999. This is Kepler architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 6 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 288.4 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. One 6-pin and one 8-pin connectors are required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 31.68 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of GeForce GTX TITAN's architecture, market segment and release date.
GeForce GTX TITAN's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of GeForce GTX TITAN's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on GeForce GTX TITAN's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed on GeForce GTX TITAN: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on GeForce GTX TITAN. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
APIs supported by GeForce GTX TITAN, sometimes including their particular versions.
Non-gaming benchmark performance of GeForce GTX TITAN. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
3DMark Fire Strike Graphics
Fire Strike is a DirectX 11 benchmark for gaming PCs. It features two separate tests displaying a fight between a humanoid and a fiery creature seemingly made of lava. Using 1920x1080 resolution, Fire Strike shows off some realistic enough graphics and is quite taxing on hardware.
Unigine Heaven 4.0
This is an old DirectX 11 benchmark, a newer version of Unigine 3.0 with relatively small differences. It displays a fantasy medieval town sprawling over several flying islands. The benchmark is still sometimes used, despite its significant age, as it was released back in 2013.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Octane Render OctaneBench
This is a special benchmark measuring graphics card performance in OctaneRender, which is a realistic GPU rendering engine by OTOY Inc., available either as a standalone program, or as a plugin for 3DS Max, Cinema 4D and many other apps. It renders four different static scenes, then compares render times with a reference GPU which is currently GeForce GTX 980. This benchmark has nothing to do with gaming and is aimed at professional 3D graphics artists.
Cryptocurrency mining performance of GeForce GTX TITAN. Usually measured in megahashes per second.
Let's see how good GeForce GTX TITAN is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 98% minimum and 92% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
Overall GeForce GTX TITAN performance compared to nearest competitors among desktop video cards.
We believe that the nearest equivalent to GeForce GTX TITAN from AMD is Radeon R9 Nano, which is slower by 1% and lower by 2 positions in our rating.
