Priced at $1200, you can choose to power your gaming rig with either the light side of the Force or the dark side.  NVIDIA have announced two new Titan Xp GPUs, one battle scarred and lightsaber green representing the Rebel Alliance and a pristine black card which glows a familiar red.  It would seem that they are a bit behind the times as neither of those organizations exist in the current Star Wars timeline but that doesn't make them any less attractive to fans.

The specifications are familiar, a Pascal-based GP102 GPU, with 3840 CUDA cores @ 1.6GHz, and 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4Gbps.  The look is very unique however, so if you are a big fan of Star Wars then this might just be something you want to consider.  The full PR and launch movie are just below.

Tatooine, Outer Rim Territory—NVIDIA has announced two new collector’s edition NVIDIA TITAN Xp GPUs created for the ultimate Star Wars fan. The new Jedi Order™ and Galactic Empire™ editions of the NVIDIA TITAN Xp have been crafted to reflect the look and feel of the Star Wars galaxy.

These new Star Wars collector’s edition GPUs pay homage to the light side/dark side dichotomy, and contain hints of the Star Wars galaxy, such as the hilt of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber and light panels reminiscent of the Death Star.

The Jedi Order GPU simulates the wear and tear and battle-worn finish of many items used by the Rebel Alliance, resulting from its diecast aluminum cover being subjected to an extensive, corrosive salt spray.

Conversely, the Galactic Empire GPU’s finish features simple, clean lines, emulating the high-end, orderly nature of the resource-rich Empire.

Both versions have multiple windowed areas to showcase internals and lighting, evoking each faction’s lightsabers, green and red, respectively. The finishes of both versions took over a year to perfect.

The retail box packaging also pays homage to the light and dark sides of the Force, with the Jedi Order edition bathed in white, and the Galactic Empire edition bathed in black.

Exclusive Pre-Order Access for GeForce Experience Users
GeForce Experience users get exclusive pre-order access to purchase(1) the Jedi Order and Galactic Empire TITAN Xp editions before the cards are broadly available in mid-November. Starting tomorrow, GeForce Experience users can purchase one card of each design by using their log-in credentials in the NVIDIA store.

Power! Unlimited Power!
The Jedi Order and Galactic Empire TITAN Xp GPUs use the NVIDIA Pascal-based GP102 GPU, each with 3,840 CUDA cores running at 1.6GHz and 12GB of GDDR5X memory running at 11.4Gbps.

Their staggering 12TFLOPs of processing power under the hood allows Star Wars fans to play any of today’s most cutting-edge titles at the highest resolution with the highest detail quality turned on.

Priced at $1,200, each edition also includes a collectible electroformed metal badge containing the insignia of their preferred alliance.

Oh, Nvidia, you've missed Starwars's sweet teets by only a few decades.

What kids (and adults) are into these days is Rick and Morty.

With it's popularity going strong since the 60's, maybe there's still hope for a 'Coronation Street' branded GPU. Nvidia, I'm looking to you for a one-two punch this holiday season.

Never!!!!!!!  Not even if they make the shroud look like the front of the Rovers Return.

nice play with the xmas color scheme:
red vs green, right at holiday shopping season, right at 1070ti launch, as if to say:

this might be amd vs nvidia, but we own this xmas holiday!

meh, the designs look neat and all, but definitely NOT worth 1200$$$$

>this might be amd vs nvidia, but we own this xmas holiday!

Don't worry, Nvidia clearly also wants to serve people who prefer the read team over the green team.

If Nvidia wants to be really cheeky, they could also offer a red special edition 1080Ti for xmas and call it the "Geforce 1080 ATi" *cough*
