Has the "Gaming Supercomputer" era officially begun?
CyberPower PC is certainly excited about the release of Nvidia's GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, as are many other boutique system builders. Not only is Titan a, well, titan in the GPU space, it's also based on architecture that's been used in several supercomputers. This fact has led CyberPower to declare this the "Gaming Supercomputer" era, which for CyberPower actually begins on February 21, which is when customers will be able to configure Titan in new builds.
"With the DNA of the world’s fastest supercomputer and the soul of Nvidia Kepler, the GeForce GTX Titan is a revolution in PC gaming. This monster GPU establishes a new class of gaming PCs for CyberPowerPC customers: the Gaming Supercomputer. CyberPowerPC systems based on this formidable GPU will deliver the ultimate combination of power, performance, efficiency, control, and acoustics that PC gamers and enthusiasts demand," CyberPower PC says.
The GeForce GTX Titan will be available as an upgrade option on systems built around AMD's FX and Intel's X79 and Z77 platforms. Such systems will also feature CyberPower PC's Hydro 2 Liquid Cooling Kit.
Best of all, systems featuring the GeForce GTX Titan will start at just $1,699, a pretty impressive price point considering the Titan is a $1,000 GPU.
