When we all thought the Nvidia Titan XP was way over our heads and in a galaxy far, far away, we probably wouldn’t have seen these new cards coming.
Nvidia has shown the world that even the mightiest of powers in the Star Wars universe could invade even our own world – now starting with two special versions of their Titan XP. The “Jedi Order” option comes with a glowing green light system and a silver aluminum cover that Nvidia has cleverly designed to appear as if the card had battle scars. On the other hand, the “Galactic Empire” version is loaded with dark red lights and a black cover, which was designed to look cleaner and orderly as the empire does best – we can see the corruption flowing out just by looking! Luckily for you, we’ll be going over a few details about these products.
With 3840 CUDA cores and a 1405 MHz core clock (1582 Mhz boost clock), the graphics cards come with a gigantic 12 GB GDDR5X of video ram and go as fast as 11.4 Gbps, which are the same specifications as the normal card. The versions come with a unique backplate with the Star Wars logo embedded into it and the usual Titan model name glowing on one side. Depending on what card you choose, the other side will display “Galactic Empire” or “Jedi Order” glowing in the chosen version’s color.
Review of Nvidia TITAN Xp Star Wars Collector’s Edition
As mentioned, we can see the special variant’s name on one side of the card, which was also designed to appear as a lightsaber – we suggest not wielding it like one just yet!
If you aren’t familiar with the performance of the Titan XP, we can tell you that it is a monster of a graphics card. The two versions also have the symbol of their faction where the fan is located and the dominating performance of these products makes it very appropriate. Temperature is controlled by the Titan’s vapor chamber cooling system that can partially be seen through the windows of these cards. It’s recommended that you have a 600-watt power supply before you consider blasting your energy weapons at incoming tie fighters, but an interesting situation would be putting these cards in SLI – now we’re talking.
Nvidia GeForce members will be allowed to preorder these Star Wars Collector’s Edition graphics cards as of today, but the general public will be able to purchase on November 17th and just in time for the holidays too.
We already know that the Titan XP is a monster of a card, but this is a definite must-have for those who are loyal fans of the Star Wars series or if you’re looking for a worthy addition to your battle station to dominate every game out there in the universe. Either way, it’s a change of pace for Nvidia since they rarely offer Star Wars licensed products such as these. It’s also a good idea to offer both the light and dark side for the many fans out there.
