How well can the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition run games
2 May 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

Gamers upgrading will be considering the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition graphics card as a serious price to performance entry point. This card will meet and play most demanding AAA games and do so with good graphics setting as standard, and confidently pushing past the recommended game system requirements needed to run today’s games. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

How well will the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition run 2021 games? We will take a look at the biggest releases and frames per second analysis on Ultra graphics settings. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 425 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition can run Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition at 1080p and saw it return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 58 FPS, Medium: 44 FPS, High: 29 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Far Cry 6 is predicted to return a weak 20 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition by playing Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition which yielded a weak performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 45FPS, M: 33FPS, H: 22FPS, U: 11FPS. Another popular game we researched with this card was Far Cry 6 and that was weak. This graphics card is predicted to deliver 15 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was Age of Empires IV which is predicted to get playable results with a 37FPS on Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition, this is in need of some graphics adjustments to get some stability, which means its not an ideal gaming resolution for this GPU.

How many years will the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition then a good choice would be 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB as this is better than 786 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 27% better performance as well. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition is the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB, which is 36% more powerful and can run 905 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition is an Enthusiast Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Kepler architecture.

The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GK110-430-B1 which has 15 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 2880 Shader Processing Units, 240 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The Central Unit is initially clocked at 889MHz and goes up to 980MHz, in Turbo Mode.

The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 384-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz.

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

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.

At 2560x1440, the best suited resolution for GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition, benchmarks indicate its performance is a little over GeForce GTX 780 Ti.
Therefore, GeForce GTX 690 and even GeForce GTX 980 are still faster.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Very Strong Processor (Intel Core i7 Quad Core/AMD FX Eight Core) and 12GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition.
