GeForce Titan Pre-Order Availableby Jarred Walton on February 22, 2013 1:31 PM EST
This week saw the launch of NVIDIA's latest and greatest single GPU consumer graphics card, the GeForce Titan. Priced at a cool grand ($1000), the Titan isn't the sort of video card that every hobbyist and gamer can buy on a whim. Instead, NVIDIA is positioning it as an entry-level compute card (e.g. it's about one third the price of a Tesla K20), or an ultra-high-end gaming card for those who simply must have the best. We expect to see quite a few boutiques selling systems equipped with Titan, and indeed we've seen press releases from all the usual suspects.
This is as good a place as any to list those, so here's a short list, with estimated pricing based on a custom configured PC at each vendor. (I'm sure there are other vendors selling Titan as well; this is by no means intended to be a comprehensive list.)
- AVADirect includes Titan as an option in many of their custom desktop systems, with a price of $1067 per GPU.
- Falcon Northwest has Titan available in their SFF Tiki that Anand previewed this week, as well as their full desktop Talon and Mach V desktops. Titan adds $1095 per GPU to the cost of a FNW system.
- iBUYPOWER currently has the Titan in their Revolt SFF, which Dustin recently reviewed. Pricing is $1111 per GPU, because that's such a cool number I guess. Titan is also available in their custom configured desktops
- Maingear has a variety of desktop systems now available for configuration with Titan, with the GPUs adding $1090 each to the cost of the system.
- OriginPC has both Genesis and Chronos systems with Titan; Ryan previewed the Genesis earlier this week while the Chronos goes after the SFF market. They appear to be charging $1156 per Titan GPU, but they're also one of the first (if not the only) vendor with liquid-cooled Titan availabe.
Obviously that's a higher cost per GPU at every one of the above vendors, and if you've already got a fast system you probably aren't looking to upgrade to a completely new PC. For those looking to buy a Titan GPU on it's own, Newegg is now listing a pre-order of the ASUS Titan at the $999 MSRP. The current release date is listed as February 28, so next Thursday. We expect EVGA and some other GPU vendors to also show up some time in the next week, and we'll update this list as appropriate.

Omoronovo - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkPreorders for Titan are available at a lot of the big uk retailers now; Scan, Overclockers, Dabs, Novatech and Ebuyer.
Still a ridiculous price, £840 seems so much like a bad move from nvidia. If it was even $100/£100 cheaper it would put a major crimp on the style of the "unofficial" 7990 cards.
cratersill - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkyes indeedy. certainly no reason to rush out and preorder one of these. at this price there are going to be plenty available for the forseeable future.
behold the most marked up video card ever released, obviously from nvidia
prefer to wait for the price slashing to begin on these cards, they wont be able to hold this price on the market, their performance doesn't come near to justifying it
kilkennycat - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkAlthough this card reclaims the single-GPU graphics crown,. the primary target market for this card is not consumer graphics, but compute-hungry developers, students and researchers on a tight budget. Also professional desktop video production, taking advantage of the
massive GPU-compute capability.. a cost/performance sweet-spot. nVidia has a winner here in a previously cost-restricted market. The lowest-cost Tesla is 3x the price. Also, the card is supported with CUDA updates and mature Linux drivers previously honed on Fermi and others in the Kepler series.
Lonyo - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkI guess a week or so delay doesn't count as a real soft launch, and it gives people time to speak with their bank about financing.
Ahnilated - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkThey finally go back to having a card that is a step up from the GTX 580 in number crunching after they stripped this out of the GTX 680 for their pocket books and now want to charge us $1000 for it? I think it is time to boycott Nvidia cards until they stop giving the customer the shaft in favor of their pocket books.
HisDivineOrder - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkBlame AMD. They didn't show up to the fight. It becomes clear that nVidia really, really needs competition in order to maintain reasonable pricing.
And to be fair, I think reasonable pricing on this card is $700-$800. Still, it's not meant for most people to buy. It's there to make every other product look more affordable and sane.
Creig - Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - linkOh, please. It's AMD's fault that Nvidia is greedy? Nobody put a gun to Jen-Hsun Huang's head and forced Nvidia to charge $1,000 for their latest GeForce card. Nvidia has ALWAYS been the one to put out the highest price cards. If they wanted to, they could have charged $700 for it. But they chose not to.
Nvidia is the one who set the price of the Titan. Not AMD.
CeriseCogburn - Sunday, March 3, 2013 - linkAll you crybabies should check the usual and the latest nVidia profits which sit at 10%.
If you idiots spent $90 to make something and sold it for $100, you'd all be screaming bloody murder that you got ripped off by your customer.
Being a blaring idiot without any facts is popular though, so carry on.
Silver Bullet 126 - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkNCIX Canada has the eVGA and Gigabyte Titans up for pre-order ... $1049 and $1056 CAD.
finbarqs - Friday, February 22, 2013 - linkIn for 1! Thanks op!
