Written by Joffy S on 05 March 2015 at 11:30

With a 12GB framebuffer and a staggering 8 billion transistors, Nvidia’s new GeForce GTX Titan X is the most powerful graphics card on the planet. Thousands of Titans are no doubt cropping up on eBay as you read this, with Nvidia’s Maxwell-powered newcomer the GTX Titan X set to blow it away.

We’ve been waiting on news of Nvidia’s ‘Big Maxwell’ for a while now, and the GTX Titan X is the result.

The left circular touchpad has now been updated with a cross-shaped indentation, similar to a traditional four-way directional-pad. The right one meanwhile acts as a trackpad, similar to that on laptops, complete with acceleration to mimic mouse movement. [More]
