The NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X has been spotted with two displayports. The second generation TITAN GPU has already passed, although this model is significantly more distinctive than others. NVIDIA’s TITAN series, released in 2013, was the most luxurious GPU at the time, aiming for optimal gaming performance at a relatively low price. More than a decade later, however, a $999 retail price reflects poorly on NVIDIA, which produces significantly more expensive GPUs today.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X is a 2015 model. It is built around the Maxwell GM200 GPU, which has 3072 CUDA cores. This graphics card has 12 GB of GDDR5 memory and was the most advanced gaming GPU at the time. The card obtained by Redditor “puzzlew” is the same card that was eventually distributed to the public, with one minor difference: it only has two DisplayPort connections instead of four.
This GTX TITAN X has a similar board number to the original TITAN X that was released on the market. However, the product code is slightly different: instead of 699-1G600-0000-500E, this model is 699-1G600-0000-501C.
On Reddit, the NVIDIA community manager acknowledged that this tech copy should not have been sold. The company regularly exchanged pre-production products with partners, who eventually validated the hardware. In this situation, one of those samples was sold without permission from NVIDIA.
