NVIDIA Launches Modded Collector's Edition Star Wars Titan Xp Graphics Card (hothardware.com) 45

MojoKid writes: NVIDIA just launched its fastest graphics card yet and this GPU is targeted at Star Wars fans. In concert with EA's official launch today of Star Wars Battlefront II, NVIDIA unveiled the new Star Wars Titan Xp Collector's Edition graphics card for enthusiast gamers. There are two versions of the cards available -- the Galactic Empire version and a Jedi Order version. Both of the cards feature customized coolers, shrouds, and lighting, designed to mimic the look of a lightsaber. They also ship in specialized packaging that can be used to showcase the cards if they're not installed in a system. The GPU powering the TITAN Xp Collector's Edition has a base clock of 1,481MHz and a boost clock of 1,582MHz. It's packing a fully-enabled NVIDIA GP102 GPU with 3,840 cores and 12GB of GDDR5X memory clocked at 5.5GHz for an effective data rate of 11Gbps, resulting in 547.2GB/s of peak memory bandwidth. At those clocks, the card also offers a peak texture fillrate of 379.75 GigaTexels/s and 12.1TFLOPs of FP32 compute performance, which is significantly higher than a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. In the benchmarks, it's the fastest GPU out there right now (it better be for $1200), but this card is more about nostalgia and the design customizations NVIDIA made to the cards that should appeal to gamers and Star Wars fans alike.

    Since JJ Abrams will be responsible for two of the new films, it seems appropriate to include special lens flare rendering cores.

    But I doubt even NVIDIA has the magic ability to make JJ a good director.

    In 10 years it will be just as worthless as the standard one. Even while its good no one will know or care that you have it. About the only place you'll get to show it off is in your signature on forums. Might as well just lie and say you have one rather than pay the $1200 to feel justified in your signature bragging.

      You can then buy the limited-edition display card display case for the low, low price of $99.95.

      I've got to admit, the first thing I thought was that this was rather silly. Then I thought it a bit and realized that the people with really pimped-out cases might be able to make it fit in to a theme... if the cool artwork doesn't get hidden by the card in the next slot, that is.

    This makes as much sense as a 14.4 USR Collectable Modem or floppy drive, or CRT. Computer subsystems might gather dust in a museum but aren't going to be tooled around with like old cars.

    This is just Disney doing a Scott Adams and sticking a logo on anything that has a shape. I never thought I'd say it, but this makes me think of Lucas as comparatively tasteful.

    • Ahahah, were you not around in the 70's and 80's? The Star Wars logo was stuck on anything and everything. Or maybe you just don't remember the Star Wars branded toothbrushes or bed covers. There was nothing tasteful about it.

        TAKE THAT BACK. I had one of those bed covers as a kid and it was awesome. It was the Return of the Jedi one, with the flying bikes -- which are the coolest vehicles ever; fast, agile, with a built-in commlink jammer and a cool rugged paint job.

      • It's a rhetoical device. Sort of like:
        "Has your mom lost weight?"
        "No, she's just standing next to an elephant".

    Do you have to pay EA extra to unlock all the GPU cores before playing Battlefront II?

    • Each locked GPU core will also be available after playing an hour. So, it's not like you *have* to pay extra, right?

      With 3,840 cores, that should take you a mere 1.8 years to unlock it's full potential, assuming you're playing games full-time.

    Does the video card come with a slot to insert your credit card for Nvidia DLC?

  • by Anonymous Coward

    Seems to be the thing with Star Wars branding. Just sayin...

  • NVIDIA just launched its fastest graphics card yet ...... In concert with EA's official launch today of Star Wars Battlefront II

    So....how are AMD GPUs these days?

  • Will this Windows XP video board be fully supported under Windows 10?

  • Your $1200 only buys you maybe 3 months at most of being the fastest card on the planet, after that is just more of yesterdays tech.

Real programs don't eat cache.

Working...
