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.

yramak - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkhi my nvidia geforce 8400m gs graphics card 128mb in Dell vostro 1500 is not working and unable to get this spare in India. Can any body suggest the alternative.
JonnyDough - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkMost enthusiasts have a system that is "good enough" to play just about any game out there currently. With millions of games to choose from, I don't even care about new ones. Tech should be getting cheaper, with the economy the way it is things should be cheaper. Not more costly. Not to mention economies of scale. Most large corporations are doing just fine, they have more customers than ever. Why? More people and more markets than ever before.
Then there's also the fact that with each process shrink, it becomes cheaper for them to manufacture these parts. So why then is it that prices have gone up recently? Hmm. No thanks.
JonnyDough - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkDon't be a sucker. Pay off debt. Invest.
chizow - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkAgreed, I wasn't planning on buying a GK110-based card, made my decision months ago when Nvidia delayed BigK and 670 fell to reasonable prices and bought 2 at $330 each. But I would've considered getting 1 or even 2 if it were a reasonable $700 or so.
For $1000 Nvidia can stick it, I'll probably end up investing the $1000 into Nvidia stock instead, sell at $20 and let the suckers who buy this thing finance my pair of GTX 780s whenever Nvidia decides the unwashed masses are ready to experience GK110.
CeriseCogburn - Sunday, March 3, 2013 - linkOh come on, you fagged out on getting the 570's at the launch price and waited forever till you could squeeze out the lowest end price that is still not available anywhere.
You're a crybaby tightwad who didn't pay any sort of regular price for either 670, so who cares how much you whine ?
The cheapest 670 TODAY is $364 each at the egg, so you aren't any sort of measuring stick.
Tightwad, cheapskate, scrooge, crybaby, penny pincher, then add in the braggart part, and the big fat STILL INCORRECT brainfart about 670 "having fallen" to $300 (implied), and if anyone goes by what you spew, they're nutso as well.
In2Boost - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkDumb question, please be kind =) but what accounts for the price difference between vendors for the same card? I can understand volume pricing, with respect to NewEgg if that's even the case, but if the vendors offer the same card with same clocks, what gives?
FNW has a riser card with their Tiki system yet it costs less than iBuyPower and Origin's offerings. Different OEMs maybe?
haukionkannel - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkBrand cost... iBublegum is more expensive than Walmart bublegum, even they are exactly the same product from the same factory...
There are people who are willing to pay more, if the "brand" is right...
RoninX - Saturday, February 23, 2013 - linkThe Titan is like the Bugatti Veyron. People aren't buying it for price/performance. If that's your goal, you're much better off buying a $50K Corvette than a $1M Bugatti. It's for people who want the absolute fastest machine and don't care about the cost.
Personally, I'm happy with my GTX 680, and feel no desire to buy a Titan.
chizow - Monday, February 25, 2013 - linkSorry, but no. Titan is like a Corvette at Veyron prices. How they came to price it that way was completely arbitrary and contrary to their own historical pricing and performance metrics.
