Nvidia GTX Titan X 4K Gsync Review
We'd become fairly used to the silver and black shroud on the standard nVidia reference cooler, but we like the all-black look of the Titan X. It's stealthy.
Given that the GTX980 came with a backplate, and more and more graphics cards are doing so, we find it curious that the Titan X isn't equipped with one. We would have imagined that with all this extra power in place there will be some extra heat, and that's when a backplate will help ensure the stability of the card.
Although the shroud is all black, the side still has the bright green GeForce GTX logo. So it's not quite as stealthy as one would hope. The biggest shock comes from the power inputs. 6+8. For a 12GB, 3000 core card. Incredibly impressive confidence in the low power capabilities from nVidia there.
