We got our first glances of the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X thanks to an early reveal on stage, at GDC in San Francisco last week. We didn't get to see much of it as it was presented by Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang to Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney during Epic's GDC keynote. It was revealed that the new Titan X was the main muscle behind the 'Thief in the shadows' VR experience. Beyond this on-stage appearance Nvidia showed a nice clear shot of its latest super-powerful aspirational graphics card on its Google+ page.

Since that time, when we learned that the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X sports 8 billion transistors and a 12GB buffer, a couple of sites have gone ahead and published a good selection of close-ups of the Titan X from all angles. You can check out the full array of snaps at TechGage and MaximumPC – but I have included the choicest photos here.

The TechGage shots are on the whole far superior and the publication shows the latest Nvidia TITAN X next to the GTX980 for comparison purposes (as above). This helps you gauge the black finish of the new card against the mostly silver GTX 980 and also conclude that beyond the colour scheme the construction is remarkably similar.

Looking at the graphics card the other way around, TechGage reckons that it lacks a backplate, as equipped on the 980, to aid hot air convection from the GPU and VRAM. With the 1 x 6-pin and 1 x 8-pin PCIe connectors in evidence this card might have a TDP as high as 250W.

Unconfirmed reports say that the 28nm GM200 upon which the Titan X will be based will feature 3,072 CUDA cores and run about 100MHz slower than the GTX 980. A proper set of official specs, and more, should be released when Nvidia takes to the stage at the GPU Technology Conference, which starts on 17th March.

The soldering for the power connectors is always an easy spot on the back of a board so I would love to know what the other bank of 8 points on the back that are rotated 90 degrees and near a little cut out of the PCB are for.

Also there on the 980 - looks like they were thinking of 1 x 8-pin? http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/74849-nvidia-geforce-gtx-980-28nm-maxwell/?page=5
I'm sure it will be an awesome graphics card…

Got a friend who's really into his GPUs and overclocking.
Any time a new one comes out, he'll be showing me photos of it and going, “Cor, look at this 6950/7970/7990/780Ti/290X/Titan”… while showing me pics of cards with reference coolers on.

If I'm honest, they all look the same to me - The only way I can tell the difference is by what it says on the side or on the box it comes in!! :D

Hadn't thought of looking at the 980 picture, the interesting difference is that in the 980 pic the solder isn't there, just the place it would go, but it is on the Titan.

The solder is there on my 980.
