Nvidia announced today that their fasted video card to date is now available to system builders and add-in card partners. The Geforce GTX Titan Z, based on the company's Kepler architecture, will run users a staggering $3000 to start according to the company.

The card is based on two fully-enabled GK110 Titan Black Kepler-based GPUs featuring 5760 CUDA cores and supporting resolutions up to 3840 x 2160. The card contains 12 GB of 7 GHz GDDR5 memory with a core clock of 706 MHz and 876 MHz boost clock. It also features a memory bus width of 2 x 384-bit and 2 x 240 texture units thanks to the use of two cores. The Titan Z has a thermal design power (TDP) of 375 watts and 12 phase power supply with power balancing, requiring the card to use two 8-pin connectors for power. The will also require three open case slots for use.

"GTX TITAN Z is the fastest and most advanced graphics card we've ever made. A technical masterpiece, designed from top to bottom for record breaking performance," says Nvidia.

Add-in companies such as EVGA are looking at bringing a number of options to the market for consumers interested in the Titan Z. With three SKUs the company is trying to fill the power hungry needs of gamers, EVGA will offer a standard version, a Superclocked version that raises the base block to 732 MHz from 705 MHz, and a Hydro Copper version which is setup for water cooling with a 758 MHz clock.

System builders like Origin PC have already begun to offer the Titan Z cards as an option in their systems. The builder is offering the card in all three of its desktop designs. Adding the Titan Z will bring the Z97 base price of the Genesis up to $5310, $5027 for the Millennium and $4641 for the Chronos.

"What happens when you fuse the power and performance of 2 of the most powerful GPUs in the market into a single graphics card? You get Titan Z," said Origin PC CEO Kevin Wasielewski. "Titan Z is undeniably the most powerful single card solution ever offered by Origin PC for professionals and gamers."

Other builders have added the card upgrade, starting at prices as low as $2600 in custom configurations. A Titan Z upgrade in Cyberpower's Black Perl line will run $3500. Digital Storm's Hailstorm II can be upgraded for $2613. Falcon Northwest buyers can upgrade the Mach V for $2923. The Shift line from Maingear can upgrade to the new GPU for $3050.
