NVIDIA GeForce TITAN X spotted with two display connectors

The second-generation TITAN GPU is already a part of the history, but this model is even more unique than others. 

NVIDIA TITAN series started by NVIDIA in 2013, were the most luxurious GPUs at the time, designed for best gaming performance and relatively very high prices. But almost ten years later, a retail price of $999 puts a shame on NVIDIA who now make much more expensive GPUs.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X is a 2015 product. It was based on Maxwell GM200 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores. This graphics card featured 12GB of GDDR5 memory and was the most powerful gaming GPU at the time.

The card purchased by Redditor ‘puzzlew’ is the same card that was later released to the market, but with one small exception: it only has two display connectors instead of four.

As it turns out, this GTX TITAN X has the same board number as the original TITAN X released to the market. However, the product code is slightly different, instead of 699-1G600-0000-500E this model is 699-1G600-0000-501C.

NVIDIA community manager on Reddit confirmed that this is an engineering sample that shouldn’t have been sold. The company often shared pre-production units with partners who later use this hardware for validation. In this case, one of those samples was sold without NVIDIA’s permission.
