I know it's probably inconceivable but you think there will be a version of the Titan X that would work with the G20?

current specs on the net say it is a 250W card.

I suppose we'd have to settle on the GTX 980 huh?

Would Asus release higher capacity external PSUs for the G20 system to compensate? like say a 2nd 230w or maybe a 300w PSU to replace the 180 or 230?

Better to wait for the actual product to be released if specs can affect compatibility. Final specs often change. And NVidia's partners have a tradition of modifying specs further by manufacturing enthusiast cards with tweaked non-reference designs.

hmm maybe asus can come up with a poseidon version :) kinda like this 980… http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/POSEIDONGTX980P4GD5/

curious if it'll fit the G20AJ

The specs say 300W, so no it wouldn't work in a G20AJ.

Then there's the heat that thing will certainly put out.

They are going to test Titan-X soon, but a retail version is unlikely to appear before the summer.

Yeah i figured as much, just hoping to see what vendors come up with (such as asus :D) I'm guessing its more likely a 980 Ti would work in the G20AJ whenever it comes out compared to the Titan X.

Unless you boys can come up with a water cooling kit for the G20 >_>

You could mod a G20 with an external kit! :D

A bigger Asus power supply brick than the 230W "MIGHT" work, if there is one.

The Asus G20 provided 230W power supply brick is: 19.5V x 11.8A = 230.1W

I don't know if two 230W power supply bricks could be used.

180W+ 230W= 410W

230W+ 230W= 460W
460W- 180W= 280W available for a video card

I don't know if the extra 50W could be even used, or applied to the video card.

The Nvidia Titan X Reference card Graphics Card Power (W) is 250W. That's for a standard, non-overclocked video card. If that 250W is the average, minimum, or maximum, isn't noted.

lol an external PSU enclosure would look silly… and i'm pondering how the wiring will go out… drill holes in the back? lol ugh i don't even want to think about it

i think i'll wait until next summer and see what Asus ROG can come up with in a Ref card form factor either as a 980TI or with a TITAN X cuz Im holding off replacing the GTX 760 in the G20AJ US009S

That could actually work for having 2x 230W models. However, just having titan inside the case is a bit silly at this point imo. It would overheat easily (may easily go above 86c+). I'd rather stick with a 970 and OC it from there with the left over W headroom.

i guess i could wait and see what else comes out later this year. like a gtx 980ti maybe :p

I am confident enough to say that, the next G20 perhaps in 2017 might come with better flexibility within the case. The current one is well designed, perfectly imo for it's size. However, if people truly wish to throw a titan in there, better of having the side panel modded out with grill holes for in-take and out-take air.


because otherwise, it's a waste on having the card there, it will just end up having a dynamic frequency scaling (throttling) in a long run.

Not true at all. I have a GTX 980 TI and never go above 75c with a custom MSI Afterburner fan profile (Fan doesn't even go above 70% pretty quiet actually) with zero throttling ever. I have the i7 4790K and it never goes above 73c with several hours of GTA 5 (GTA 5 is very a CPU intensive game) with Gelid Extreme thermal paste. Never break 65c on the CPU with Far Cry 4 maxed out.

Is it possible to move everything in the PC to another tower an buying like a 800 watt power supply?

As I pointed out in another thread, anything is possible, w/modifications, but for the most part, No. The m/b isn't a standard one, nor are the power supplies.

Once again the G20AJ is quit a nice capable system, w/quit a punch for it's size, w/the memory expandable up to 16 GB, which is the norm w/socket 1150 CPU's, w/the CPU expandable up to the i7-4790K, and the video card, up to a standard Nvidia Reference Design GTX 980, and w/a Dell 330W power supply, a Reference GTX 980Ti.

If you wanted to max out everything, hardware wise, or overclock everything, then the G20AJ was the wrong system to buy in the first place.

Alienware just came out w/their third generation of their X51, which supports Intel's sixth generation of CPU's, which is water cooled as an option, and which allows overclocking, and offers the use of an external video card w/it's own power supply, which supports a Titan X. The only problem w/the system at the moment is, is the available selection of CPU's for it. There's nothing available from Intel, in the 6th generation of processors, which can really out perform the i7-4790K, yet.
