Star Wars Collectors’ Edition Titan Xps are the cards you’re looking for

Star Wars fans, take note. Nvidia is releasing two limited editions of its Titan Xp übercard today that commemorate everybody's favorite galaxy far, far away: one for fans of the Jedi Order, and another for adherents of the Galactic Empire.

Each card has a cooler shroud with details inspired by famous lightsabers wielded by Sith lords or Jedi knights, and they'll carry corresponding red or green backlighting to complete the effect. These Titans will come with suitably-themed presentation boxes, as well. A close look at the cooler shrouds on these cards will reveal careful weathering and detailing that's worthy of the Lucasfilm prop department.

No matter which side of the Force you embrace, you can turn over $1200 for one (and only one) of these limited-edition pixel-pushers when pre-orders open November 8 at 6 AM PT. Only GeForce Experience users in the United States, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany will be able to get a crack at those pre-order slots, so be sure to sign up today if you're angling for one of these babies. Presumably, whatever cards aren't spoken for during the pre-order window will be available come November 17.

    Now those are very nice looking cards. Nvidia seems to come up with more interesting designs than AMD.

    I’m actually really grateful to Nvidia for using Titan Xps for this. If it were a 1080 TI, I might actually be tempted enough to buy it, price premium and all. I mean aside from the Star Wars ness of it all, they’re just really aesthetically pleasing, for me at least.

    Although I realize I underestimate the power of the Red Side.
    And an obligatory reminder that anyone can be turned.

    It’s the card that made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs. I’ve outrun AMD cards. Not the RX Polaris based ones, mind you. I’m talking about the big Vega cards, now. She’s fast enough for you, old man.

    [Nvidia with Titan XP] “Its over AMD RTG! I have the high frame rate ground!”

    [AMD RTG with Vega RX 64] “You underestimate my power consumption !”

    AMD leaps over Nvidia as Vega RX 64’s HSF gets sliced off. The chip starts to overheat and burst into flames.

    I like Star Wars as much as the next nerd, but we all know that $800 buys you a 1080Ti card with superior power delivery designed for factory overclocks, amazing triple-fan or even AIO watercooling loops, and [i<]base clocks[/i<] higher than the 1.6 boost clock Nvidia are claiming for this card. I think the styling of these is pretty cool but you [b<]*do*[/b<] need to be a very devoted SW fan to want to pay another $400+ for a vaguely-Star-Wars-ey themed card that is only one fan-hub sticker away from not being Star-Wars themed at all. Take this Zotac 1080 AMP Extreme model at $792 with a free copy ($60) of Destiny 2; Full backplate, enhanced VRMs, 1759GHz boost clock (stock, 2yr warranty at those clocks), dual bios, RGBLED lighting and Guru3D got their sample to clock to 2062 MHz core, and 12.4GHz on the GDDR5X [i<]at default fan speeds[/i<]!! So, yeah - this thing quite comfortably outperforms the Nvidia Titan XP and apart from the fact that it's a little power hungrier and physically huge, it's also quieter and offers better minimum framerates. You're doing yourself a disservice as a well-heeled gaming enthusiast if you're in the market for a top-end card and limit yourself to Nvidia's reference boards, no matter how nerdy the Disney tie-ins might be.

      Han Shot First During your lengthy analysis that made the fatal mistake of taking this launch seriously.

        • drfish
        • 2 years ago

        I was going to say, if we’re going have serious comments now, let’s talk about how this should have been a special edition 1080 Ti that Nvidia could still charge $1200 for if they extras were noteworthy. For example…

        1) Make the display case an eGPU dock
        2) Bundle it with a Steam code for tons of Star Wars games
        3) Throw in a t-shirt, I mean, come on, it’s $1,200
        4) Purple Mace Windu or flickering Kylo Ren options for $1,337

    Looking forward to the Disney/Nvidia merger which this clearly indicates is on the cards; ha ha.
    There are almost as many card variants based on this architecture as there are films and that’s really saying something!
    So we can expect self driving spaceships powered by Nvidia and Star Wars games enjoying all the benefits of being Nvidia supported.

    A little of Yoda’s wisdom is needed here.

    “Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the GeForce. But beware of the Marketing. Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the GeForce are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight. If once you start down the Marketing path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.”

    “You will know (the good from the bad) when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the GeForce for knowledge and defense, never for Marketing.”

    “LED Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the GeForce, and a powerful ally it is. LED Life creates it, makes it grow. Its LED energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous LED beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the GeForce around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.”
