GeForce GTX Titan Z Game Requirement Analysis

The GeForce GTX Titan Z is a dual-graphics solution of two GeForce GTX Titan Black. It is thus based on the 28nm, Kepler architecture.
It offers two full Kepler GK110 GPUs and thus features 5760 Shader Processing Units, 480 TMUs and 96 ROPs, on a 768-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 706MHz and goes up to 836MHz, in turbo mode, the memory clock operates at 1750MHz. GeForce GTX Titan Z has a rated board TDP of 375W and thus consumes around 25% less than a SLI solution of GeForce GTX Titan Black, while it offers the same performance.
GeForce GTX Titan Z is thus suited for 5K gaming and should only be paired with an extremely powerful processor, as well as 12GB of RAM.
Its release price of $2999 makes it a very unattractive product as it offers twice as much performance as a GeForce GTX Titan Black but it costs three times more. Furthermore, the $1500 worth Radeon R9 295X2 is still faster.
