Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X comes with a massive full-fledged 12GB GDDR5 with 7Gbps effective memory bandwidth. It also has a massive price tag that suits the Titan X too. It should be interesting to see how good the card performs in all fronts in comparison with GTX 980 that  was reviewed earlier.

The cooling unit for the Titan X is the same nickel-alloy based shroud all in black. Unfortunately, no backplate. Seeing that Nvidia’s AiB partners cannot have its own variant of GTX Titan X, it simply looks strange not to see to be present by default. Even the reference variant of the GTX 980 has it which makes it look odd.

Though I wouldn’t go as far as to say that backplate helps to dissipate heat (unless maybe if the entire design helps in passive airflow, as pointed out in Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980), but it does help in minor cases. In the past, I’ve reviewed motherboard that have lesser clearance between 140mm CPU coolers and the first PCIe x16 slots, limiting users to make some decisions when purchasing air CPU coolers, like Coolermaster Hyper D92 and Noctua NH-U12S. Of course, liquid coolers- closed loop and custom built- will not have any issues.
