The reasons for the delay are unknown, but some believe that Nvidia wants to reconsider specifications of the product. When originally unveiled, the GeForce GTX Titan Z was supposed to be the highest-performing graphics card on the market with 8TFLOPS of maximum single-precision compute performance, which could justify its incredible price of $3000 (£2330, €2835). However, since then AMD rolled-out its Radeon R9 295X2 powered by two Hawaii XT GPUs that costs less than half the price and delivers nearly 11.5TFLOPS of compute performance. Given such a rival on the market, Nvidia reportedly took additional time to tweak clock-rates of the GPUs and memory as well as to polish its drivers.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z delayed indefinitely?
