Asus has unveiled the newly designed GTX Titan Black, a highly specced graphics card, supported by an Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Black GPU that provide users with advanced overclocking capability.

The Titan Black is a finely tuned version of the GTX Titan which launched in February 2013, the key enhancements most noticeably the base, boost and memory clock which make the Black edition 15% faster than its predecessor (according to the manufacturer). The base clock for this graphics card registers at 889 MHz, with a boost clock functionality measured at 980 MHz. The Titan Black also features 6 GB of GDDR5 video memory and 7000 MHz memory clock. All of which adds up to a pretty powerful looking graphics card on paper.

Asus has integrated this unit with Nvidia’s GPU Boost 2.0 and G-SYNC technologies. Boost 2.0 will allow users to increase the GPU’s clock speed while providing full control over power usage and temperature. G-SYNC works in conjunction with a compatible display, and automatically synchronises its refresh rate with the GPU render rate, in an effort to provide a smooth and responsive gaming experience.

All in all, this latest offering from Asus looks extremely powerful and may prove a worthwhile, although pretty expensive, investment at an estimated R14 999. No local release date is confirmed yet, but we cannot wait to get our hands on it and put the Titan Black through its paces.
