NVIDIA reveal the New Titan X

by on July 22, 2016

NVIDIA has unveiled the obscenely powerful and expensive all-new Titan X.

Boasting 12GB of memory, this is just… insane, and obviously should run games at 4K rather well – at least you’d hope for, given that it costs $1200 dollars direct from NVIDIA, and is coming on August 2nd.

Apparently the idea began as a bet, which is fair enough given these numbers:

  • 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)

I mean… fucking hell, to be honest. If you’ve got the money, then your PC can become a super-computer, essentially. Also, thank god for the full stop in their strapline of “The Ultimate. Period.”, right?
