NVIDIA delays launch of GeForce GTX Titan Z

The GeForce GTX Titan Z flagship graphics card is hardly news nowadays being leaked as an NVIDIA product a few months ago. Still the highly expected dual-GPU video card is nowhere to be seen nowadays. The reason is quite simple – underperforming drivers.

According to unofficial information the existing drivers for the GeForce GTX Titan Z put NVIDIA in a difficult situation – by using them the GeForce GTX Titan Z is faster than the dual-GPU AMD Radeon R9 295X2 in some tests, while it is slower in others. This ambiguous picture hardly warrants the twice as high price for the GeForce GTX Titan Z (USD 2999) when compared to the Radeon R9 295X2 (USD 1499) so NVIDIA has two ways in which it can tackle the situation – either reduce the price of the GeForce GTX Titan Z or design better drivers that can beat the R9 295X2 everywhere. It appears that NVIDIA tries to achieve the latter hoping to create drivers that can extract the best out of the GeForce GTX Titan Z and ultimately beat the R9 295X2 convincingly.

Unfortunately there’s no word on the official release of the GeForce GTX Titan Z so NVIDIA fans have little choice but wait for the 3D card.
