How well can the GeForce GTX Titan X run games
14 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

One of the most powerful pieces of hardware available today, the GeForce GTX Titan X runs today’s game system requirements comfortably. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

This PC hardware performance game review for the GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card, when running 2019 more popular games, lets us see what type of FPS this card gets when playing at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions and ultra settings. This graphics hardware can run 891 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

First we looked at 1080p resolution for the GeForce GTX Titan X performance to explore what sort of benchmarks it would achieve on the popular title Borderlands 3 and saw it deliver good frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 157 FPS, Medium: 124 FPS, High: 83 FPS and Ultra: 60 FPS. We proceeded to look at Planet Zoo to see how that compared and saw that it returned a reasonable 46 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the GeForce GTX Titan X performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Borderlands 3 and saw it deliver reasonable frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 120 FPS, Medium: 94 FPS, High: 64 FPS and Ultra: 45 FPS. We then checked the performance on Planet Zoo to see if that runs well. It was playable with a 35 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce GTX Titan X is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX Titan X in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX Titan X? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2060 Super 8GB which is 30% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 992 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX Titan X is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 Air XT 8GB, which is 21% more powerful and can run 982 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX Titan X Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX Titan X is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the second revision of the Maxwell architecture.


Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.
The Second Revision of Maxwell also adds VXGI (Voxel Global Illumination) which makes scenes significantly more lifelike and believable as light interacts more realistically in the game environment and the MFAA technology which provides the same effect as MSAA but at a much lower performance cost.


GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GM200-400-A1 which has 24 SM activated and thus 3072 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 96 ROPs. The central unit runs at 1000MHz and goes up to 1089MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 12GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The memory clock operates at 1753MHz. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and in no way adds extra performance.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.2 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, VXGI, MFAA, GameStream, G-SYNC, GPU Boost 2.0, GeForce Experience, PhysX and other technologies.


Cooling Solution
The Cooling System is Identical to the one used on the Original Titan but colored black instead, giving it a more modern design.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 250W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with one available 6-pin and 8-pin connectors.


Release Price
GeForce GTX Titan X was released for $999.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate that 1920x1080, it is even faster than AMD's Radeon R9 295X2 - a dual Graphics Card.
However, GeForce GTX Titan X is best suited for 3K gaming and in that scenario, AMD's Dual Radeon R9 295X2 is considerably faster and somewhat cheaper.
Truth is, even a solution of 2 GeForce GTX 970 proves to be faster and much cheaper.
Therefore, GeForce GTX Titan X is not a worthy purchase.


System Suggestions
We recommend a very strong processor (Intel Core i7 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 16GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX Titan X.
