According to ComputerBase’s sources the new launch date for GeForce GTX TITAN Z is set for next week.
The most powerful gaming graphics card from NVIDIA might finally be released on May 28th. Multiple sources told CB that TITAN Z should be expected on Wednesday. This is quite odd, because Wednesday is not a common launch day for NVIDIA. In fact, I can’t remember when did the company release a new graphics card on this day before. Usually it is Tuesday or Thursday, so don’t be surprised if we see it’s actually May 27th or 29th.
This would be a third launch day for this card, but no one really knows if this is a final date.
Eariler this week NVIDIA CEO spoke with CNET about the TITAN Z. Long story short, I wouldn’t expect a price-cut anytime soon.
CNET: In other gaming topics, there are reports you killed or delayed Titan Z, your new high-end GPU.
— Huang: No, no, that’s silliness.
CNET: So it’s still on time?
— Huang: Yeah.
CNET: $3,000 is a lot of money for a GPU. What do you do to make sure that for someone who buys it, it’s not irrelevant two or three years down the road?
— Huang: In fact, most of the customers that buy Titan Zs buy it every year.
CNET: Do you anticipate that happening even with the $3,000 pricing?
— Huang: Yeah. And the reason for that is the people who buy Titans and Titan Zs have an insatiable need for computing capability, graphics computing capability. So either they got tired of using just a 1,080p monitor and they just bought a 4K. My Titan all of a sudden’s not enough. For a 4K monitor, a $3,000 to $5,000 monitor, I need something bigger to drive it. So that’s Titan Z.
