    Editors' Choice GTX Titan Trounces AMD

    Programmers who wants to take advantage of the GTX Titan's 1.48 TFLOPs of double-precision floating point, the GTX Titan is a fabulous deal. This card packs all the floating-point performance of a high-end Tesla for more than a $1,000 less.

    Customers who prefer to buy high-end hardware on a three-to-four-year replacement cycle should also seriously consider the GTX Titan. The card's 6GB of VRAM will be current for years. Ditto for the huge amount of memory bandwidth and Kepler's already-excellent performance characteristics. The GTX Titan really is an early adopter product—buy one now, and you'll be ahead of the mainstream for several years.

    If you're into multi-monitor gaming, the GTX Titan is an easy fit there, too. While we don't have comparative figures for other solutions, the GPU has no trouble driving 5,760-by-1,080 resolutions across three 27-inch displays. That means it'll also have no trouble driving single monitors at 2,560-by-1,440, and could likely handle even a 4K HDTV with aplomb.

    If the Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 was Nvidia's response to a resurgent AMD 12 months ago, the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan cements Team Green's position in the driver's seat. If you've got the cash, this card is an easy recommendation and is our new Editors' Choice for high-end video cards
