NVIDIA has a coup on its hands this holiday. With the release of Battlefront II today and The Last Jedi next month, a new series of Titan Xp cards is available that will make Star Wars fans giggle with excitement! This is the same Titan Xp performance we expect but with a completely new external design and style, available in both a red-themed Galactic Empire version and a green-themed Jedi Order option.
Check out the video above for the unboxing and my thoughts as I swoon over them…
If you want some more pictures of the goods, I have them here as well.
Do note – though it's hard to recommend a $1200 graphics card to many people, these cards almost seem like a steal considering they are priced at the same cost as the standard Titan Xp models. I know that the price for these custom shrouds in short runs was not cheap, so its almost like NVIDIA is giving Star Wars that double as PC enthusiasts a little gift for the holidays.
Okay, that might be a stretch… But come on, look how awesome these graphics cards look!!
We are working up a full system build (time for my personal upgrade!) with these two GPUs and will have a build log of that up before Christmas. Don't worry, we plan on properly presenting this hardware through an all-glass chassis!
Ryan, how much did you have

Consider the possibility that
Consider the possibility that people working at PCPer or people they know, where interested in buying Titan Xp cards. So, why not buy the special editions, do a presentation and then give them to their new owners. Let’s say that I am a professional, I know Ryan and I am about to build a new system. Ryan tels me that a Titan Xp is the best for my work and tells me about those new versions, offering me to help me build my new system, if he can borrow the card for a short presentation at his site.
Or probably major tech sites enjoy a nice price discount from top companies, when buying from the online shop, under the condition they present that hardware online in their sites. So, they get the cards, do the presentation and then sell them at the prices they got them in the first place, prices that would look great for anyone searching at second hand hardware.

Those Google AdWords hard at work lol 😉 nice one Ryan. It’s nice to splurge once in a while.
