    Pretty poor that in an era of RGB lighting, this is an "either/or" thing. When other manufacturers give full control over lighting on much cheaper items, a 1000ukp graphics card doesn't give us full control and we have to choose one or other

    Pff, they were kind enough to let you have one of each before refusing purchase! What more could you want...

    they go to all the trouble of custom lighting, worn shroud with salt, but they cant put a tiny p after the X.
    'The box includes a collectible electroformed metal badge containing the insignia' and has a tiny p. so why cant the shroud itself?
    0/10 for effort NVidia.

    Re: Nvidia Titan Xp Star Wars Collectors Editions launch

    The shrouds on each model are different so hence why there is no RGB I suspect.

    They look incredible, but £1150 is crazy money for 12TFLOPS. £650 will buy you a 1080ti with 11TFLOPS

    I also was informed today that Philips have Star wars shavers - https://www.philips.co.uk/c-m-pe/face-shavers/dark-side

    Considering the poor RGB lighting, it really is appalling, like one giant LED stuck at one end.

    Also, still not keen on the Nvidia stock fan.
