Last week VRFocus reported on NVIDIA releasing a teasing video for a new TITAN Xp Collectors Edition model. Today, the company has now officially unveiled the new graphics card and there’s actually two versions, both modeled on Star Wars.
Paying homage to the light side-dark side dichotomy, the two new cards contain hints of the Star Wars galaxy, such as the hilt of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber, and the light panels reminiscent of the Death Star.
So the Jedi Order GPU has battle-worn wear and tear, with a die cast aluminum cover having the look of extensive, corrosive salt spray. While the Galactic Empire GPU features simple, clean lines, emulating the high-end, orderly nature of the resource-rich Empire.
The Star Wars NVIDIA TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition GPUs use the NVIDIA Pascal-based GP102 GPU, each with 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz, and 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4Gbps, with 12TFLOPs of processing power. These specifications are exactly the same as the standard TITAN Xp which launched earlier this year, becoming NVIDIA’s new top-of-the-range consumer graphics card.
GeForce Experience users in the US, United Kingdom, France and Germany will receive exclusive pre-order access to purchase the Star Wars NVIDIA TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition graphics cards starting at 6am PT/2pm GMT, on 8th November. The cards will then go on general sale from 17th November, priced at $1,200.00 USD – exactly the same as the standard model, just looking a lot more fancy.
Because they are a Collectors Edition model the retail box packaging for the Jedi Order edition is bathed in white, and the Galactic Empire edition comes in black. Each edition also includes a collectible electroformed metal badge containing the insignia of the customers preferred alliance.
For Star Wars fans who want the best out of the virtual reality (VR) headsets, the new Star Wars TITAN Xp Collector’s Edition certainly does pack an impressive punch.
