Embrace the Light – or Dark – side with NVIDIA’s Star Wars-themed GPUs

NVIDIA has unveiled a couple of collector’s edition Star Wars Titan Xp GPUs for fans of the Galactic Empire and Jedi Order, which are set to go on sale in mid-November. Be warned, though: they won’t come cheap.

Priced at $1,200 each, the GPUs are equipped with the one thing most gamers can’t resist: LEDs – red for the Galactic Empire and green for the Jedi Order. That’s about all that separates these variants from the standard Pascal-based Titan Xp.

The Titan Xp is driven by 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz and 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4Gbps, reports The Verge, generating an eye-watering 12-teraflops of power, around double the graphics capabilities of the Xbox One X.

Much to our surprise, NVIDIA decided against throwing in a free copy of Star Wars Battlefront II with every order. Each unit, instead, comes equipped with a metal badge. That’s it. No hidden light tricks. No cool sound effects. Just a badge.

To be fair, NVIDIA’s selling the Star Wars Titan Xp GPUs at the same price as the regular Titan Xp, when it could probably charge a premium – so the added LEDs and badge are a nice gesture, albeit one that not everyone will appreciate.
