ASUS, MSI and Palit launch NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X
Another trio of add-on card manufacturers have now launched the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X, billed by NVIDIA as the world’s most advanced GPU. ASUS, MSI and Palit have now joined the party with their own branded reference versions of the GTX Titan X, making the full power of the GM200 Maxwell-based GPU available to more enthusiasts seeking the absolute best in single-GPU graphics performance.
The ASUS GeForce GTX Titan X features the same 1000MHz GPU base clock and 1075MHz boost clock as NVIDIA’s reference card. It also sports the same black aluminium cooling shroud and vapor-cooling chamber as the other cards in this line-up, which take their cue from NVIDIA's reference card as well. The card ships with ASUS GPU Tweak software, which allows gamers to easily make changes to their graphics card’s clock speeds, voltages and fan speeds. And with XSplit Gamecaster, ASUS gives gamers a tool to begin live streaming their games on the world’s most powerful single-GPU card.
The MSI GeForce GTX Titan X also boasts the same clock and boost speeds as NVIDIA’s reference card. Gamers looking to tap into every ounce of performance on the MSI GeForce GTX Titan X will be able to do so with the MSI Afterburner overclocking utility, which allows them to tweak core and memory clock speeds for better performance. When combined with the Kombuster burn-in testing feature, MSI Afterburner will be a perfect complement to the GeForce GTX Titan X, serving as a valuable tool for enthusiasts who want to achieve maximum performance in the latest games with a stable overclock.
To cap it all off, Palit has also joined the crowd with a reference design as mandated by NVIDIA. The Palit GeForce GTX Titan X shares the same specifications and design as its ASUS and MSI counterparts.
And like the other two cards, the Palit GeForce GTX Titan X is also shipping with Palit’s own overclocking software. The ThunderMaster Overclocking Utility is designed to fully utilize NVIDIA’s GPU Boost technology and better monitor the card’s clock speed, which will help maximize performance with more stable overclocks. Gamers will also be able to set new parameters for their overclocks, with features such as GPU Temperature Target and Frame Rate Target.
