Unboxing the TITAN X

The TITAN X arrives in a sturdy box which can also be used for display.DSCN1588

The TITAN X is made with premium materials and components, including a faceted die-cast aluminum body, and a thermal solution designed to run cool and quiet. Like the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition board, a dual-FETs power supply is used to improve power efficiency, along with a low impedance power delivery network and custom voltage regulators.Titan_x-59-Edit

Unlike the GTX 1080 and the GTX 1070 which use a single 8-pin PCIe connector, the TITAN X uses 8-pin plus 6-pin connectors. DSCN1598

The TITAN X has been designed and built by Nvidia and it was made with premium materials and components including a faceted die cast aluminum body that definitely has a very solid feel to it.  The TITAN X is built around a radial fan and featuring two copper heat pipes embedded in the base of an aluminum heatsink, and it moves all heated air outside the chassis.Titan_x-65-Edit

The connections are the same for all 3 Pascal cards.DSCN1601 Here is the TITAN X looking at the sturdy backplate.DSCN1596

The backplate is removable for use in SLI configurations.Titan_X_Back_PCB,AirFlowPiece

The Titan X is a remarkably good looking video card from any angle.

Other Features of the TITAN X

Ansel has been Integrated into Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst and later on in the Witcher 3  this Month

The TITAN X also supports Nvidia Ansel technology, a game-capture tool that allows gamers to explore and share gaming art in new ways. With Ansel, users can compose their gameplay shots by pointing the camera in any direction and from any vantage point within a gaming world, and then capture 360-degree stereo photospheres for viewing with a VR headset or with Google Cardboard.

The first game to support Ansel is Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst, and Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, will be available later this month. More Ansel-supported games are in development, including Epic Games’ Fortnite, Paragon and Unreal Tournament; Cyan Worlds’ Obduction; Thekla’sThe Witness; Boss Key Productions’ Lawbreakers; Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division; and No Man’s Sky from Hello Games.

VR Funhouse is now on Steam and adds TITAN X supportfunhouse

Nvidia VR Funhouse – the company’s VR carnival game – is now available for free from Valve’s Steam digital distribution service. Developed on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4, VR Funhouse will work on GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs with HTC Vive VR headsets. It will also be open sourced to developers and artists so they can create their own VR Funhouse attractions.  Of course, the very best VR experience will be on the TITAN X.

Everest VR

Beginning today, Everest VR is now available on Steam.  Everest VR uses Nvidia Turbulence to create realistic snow drifts which react to wind and also interact with blowing snow and debris accurately.  Nvidia’s Multi-Res Shading is used to achieve higher frame rates. Everest VR joins Raw Data and NVIDIA VR Funhouse as VR titles that support it.

EVEREST VR guides adventurers through a sequence of first-person events to simulate the climb to Mount Everest’s summit. EVEREST VR is high immersion VR and was specifically developed for the HTC VIVE.

Let’s check out the test configuration.


  1. I just brought a gtx1080… Feel a bit sick now… However i am only gaming at 1080p on my television so…. I think im good for a while or until i can afford to get a good monitor.

    As great as the 1080 is i can still make it sweat at 1080p on a couple of games which is a bit disheartening but then i guess almost anything has breaking points.

    • I am running a full custom liquid cooled setup with the 1080 Founders Edition. All EKWB blocks, fitting and petg tubing. I am running through a Sony bravia x800d at full 4k hitman maxed out and get between 56-60fps. I turned off all post processing in the TV settings for input 2. I’m overclocking my cpu 1 gigahertz and the 1080 is at factory base clocks.
