The Nvidia Titan Xp Collector's Edition gets a Star Wars makeover

The Nvidia Titan Xp Collector's Edition gets a Star Wars makeover

The Collector's Edition versions of NVIDIA's high-end graphics card are split between a Jedi Order version on the light side and a Galactic Empire version for fans of the dark side - both of which pack in plenty of extra aesthetic bells and whistles.

Obviously, these cards are not for everybody, but if you're a Star Wars superfan looking to make the interior of your PC pop, these GPUs should get the job done.

Ever look at an Nvidia Titan Xp GPU and thought, "Hmm".

EXTERIORAlong with the design, the use of aluminum covers was meant to emulate the standard metal hilt of most lightsabers. Each card also has their faction's emblem prominently displayed on the illuminated blower fan. The Galactic Empire edition glows red by comparison, and has the Empire/Sith symbol on the cooling fan.

Other than their appearance, the collector's edition cards are the same as the vanilla Titan Xp with 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz, and 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4Gbps.

Of course, there's no question that these are kick-ass graphics engines, based as they are on Nvidia's Pascal architecture - so good that it has taken Intel and AMD joining forces to take them on. Obviously, different versions of the new Titan Xp will carry logotypes of the two fractions as well as Star Wars backplates.

Preorders open tomorrow (8 November) at 2m United Kingdom time and are limited to one per person.

Meanwhile, customers who want something cheaper with a similar level of performance (and with fewer gimmicks) can opt for an RGB LED-enabled GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
