It's not all virtual reality headsets and VR experiences at GDC 2015. Well, it is mostly, but what's going to be driving the super-immersive PC gaming experiences? If you ask Nvidia, it'd say its newly-announced Titan X graphics card.
Revealed at Epic Games' GDC press conference, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang claimed it'll be the most powerful GPU ever built when it touches down later this year. Packed with 8 billion transistors and 12GB of VRAM, the Maxwell architecture card even outdoes the ridiculous Titan Z, which managed to squeeze in a mere (and I use the word "mere" incredibly lightly) 7 billion transistors. A 4K, 60fps playthrough of Crysis 3 doesn't sound all that improbable all of a sudden.
