NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN: specs and benchmarks

VS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX TITAN sales 19 February 2013 at a recommended price of $999 . This is a desktop graphics card based on a Kepler architecture and made with 28 nm manufacturing process. It is primarily aimed at gamer market. 6 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6.0 GB/s are supplied, and together with 384-bit GDDR5 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 10.5" (26.7 cm). One 8-pin and one 6-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 250 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 21.12% of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090.

Passmark

This is the most ubiquitous GPU benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various types of 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.
