  • Nvidia's TITAN Xp Collector's Edition is Star Wars themed

NVIDIA has unveiled a pair of new Titan Xp graphics cards built for Star Wars fans.

These new Star Wars collector's edition GPUs pay homage to the light side/dark side dichotomy, and contain hints of the Star Wars galaxy, such as the hilt of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and light panels reminiscent of the Death Star.

Both versions have different cooler die-cast aluminum shrouds with matching Galactic Empire and Jedi Order design, that should emulate the design of lightsabres, as well as matching red and green LED color, Jedi Order or Galactic Empire logos and special backplate. Internally, the coolers use the same architecture that NVIDIA has been using for its high-end Titan cards for years: a heatsink featuring a vapor chamber and thin fins that is cooled down by a blower. They're actually a bargain for what you get at just $1m200 (£915), and thankfully there's no mark up compared to the regular editions - and we've got a lot of respect for Nvidia for that.

Breakthrough Test Means Waymo's Autonomous Cars Can Ditch Backup Drivers
Of course, Waymo is still being watched by an employee in the vehicle in case of an emergency. They hail the vehicles using a Waymo app, and being the trip onboard with a push of a button.

Currently, the Star Wars Nvidia Titan Xp Collector's Edition will be $1,200, with each purchase including a collectible electro-formed metal badge, which features the crest that varies depending on which alliance you side with. The GPUs will be generally available on November 17th, but Experience members can pre-order on November 8th. The cards will then go on general sale from 17th November, priced at $1,200.00 Dollars - exactly the same as the standard model, just looking a lot more fancy.

Looks aside, this is still the Titan Xp we've know and love. They'll also offer 12 teraflops of processing power.
