Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced at an engagement at Stanford University the NVIDIA Titan X, NVIDIA’s new flagship video card. Based on the company’s new GP102 GPU, it’s launching in less than two weeks, on August 2nd. The new NVIDIA TITAN X is the biggest GPU ever built. It has a record-breaking 3,584 CUDA cores. So forget words. Here are its 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)
On the clockspeed front, Titan X will be clocked at 1417MHz base and 1531MHz boost. This puts the total FP32 throughput at 11 TFLOPs, 24% higher than GTX 1080. In terms of expected performance, NVIDIA isn’t offering any comparisons to GTX 1080, but relative to the Maxwell 2 based GTX Titan X, they are talking about an up to 60% performance boost.
Feeding the card that is GP102 is a 384-bit GDDR5X memory bus. NVIDIA will be running Titan X’s GDDR5X at the same 10Gbps as on GTX 1080, so we’re looking at a straight-up 50% increase in memory bus size and resulting memory bandwidth, bringing Titan X to 480GB/sec.
Like the past Titans, the new Titan X is a 250W card, putting it 70W above GTX 1080. The card is powered by the typical 8-pin + 6-pin power connector setup.
Display I/O is listed as DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and DL-DVI.
The card will retail for $1200, $200 more than the previous GTX Titan X (Maxwell 2), and $500 more than the NVIDIA-built GTX 1080 Founders Edition. It will be available Aug. 2 direct from nvidia.com in North America and Europe, and select system builders. It is coming soon to Asia.
