While AMD is still in the process of ramping up their upcoming Radeon Fiji XT/ R9 380X and Bermuda XT/ R9 390X GPUs, NVIDIA continue to release their new graphics processing units (GPUs) based on Maxwell architecture. During GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2015 on 17th of March, NVIDIA have officially released their latest flagship GeForce GTX TITAN X graphics card, featuring a whopping 12GB of DDR5 video memory and based on “Big Maxwell” GM200 silicon.
The new GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card was first unveiled by NVIDIA’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, during Game Developers Conference (GDC) early this month. For those who have not kept up with the timeline of NVIDIA’s GPU production, actually the GeForce GTX TITAN X is not the first Maxwell GPU that has been released in the market. The first desktop-based Maxwell GPUs are no other than the GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti which are based on mid-range GM107 GPU. Then NVIDIA introduced the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards based on high-end GM204 graphics processor.
