When Nvidia first announced the GTX 1080, everyone figured it would only be a matter of time before another card, a super card would be released. And while Nvidia was hush on the topic, many speculated that the next card to surpass the GTX 1080 would be either a GTX 1080 Ti or a new Titan. Well, ladies and gentlemen, the later was correct as Nvidia has recently announced the Pascal powered Titan X.
Continuing the Titan line, the Titan X on paper looks like a complete and total beast. Seriously, the specs on this card put just about every video card there to shame.
- 11 TFLOPS FP32
- 44 TOPS INT8 (new deep learning inferencing instruction)
- 12B transistors
- 3,584 CUDA cores at 1.53GHz (versus 3,072 cores at 1.08GHz in previous TITAN X)
- Up to 60% faster performance than previous TITAN X
- High performance engineering for maximum overclocking
- 12 GB of GDDR5X memory (480 GB/s)
Set for an August 2nd, 2016, released date and priced at $1,200.00. I can’t wait to see the benchmarks of this card. Come to think of it, I’m wondering any reviewerss already have this powerhouse in their hands now, running it through countless benchmarks.
Though, I’m not sure why Nvidia is still calling this card the Titan X, when the original Titan X was released back in March 2015. Previous Titan cards were named various suffixes, like the Titan Black, Titan Z and of course the Titan X. Let’s just hope this doesn’t cause any issues when the new Titan X is released.
Alright, Nvidia, you have my attention. Now how about being a bit nicer to my wallet and announce the GTX 1080 Ti, ok?
