Nvidia’s new Titan X is a monster



Nvidia’s new Pascal architecture has been dominating charts recently with their GTX 1000  series; however the graphics company is far from done as the new version of the Titan X has been revealed and is about 60%  faster.

Here’s some specs:

  • 12-billion transistors
  • 11 TFLOPs FP32 (32-bit floating point)
  • 44 TOPS INT8 (new deep learning inferencing instruction)
  • 3,584 CUDA cores at 1.53GHz (versus 3,072 CUDA cores at 1.08GHz in previous TITAN X)
  • High performance engineering for maximum overclocking
  • 12GB of GDDR5X memory (480GB/s)

A point to note is that this also uses GDDR5X rather than HBM2 as the supply for the new memory type is still out of reach sadly; but should start popping up next year.

Now while as much as any of us would love to own one of these babies; it comes at a whopping cost of $1,200.   Obviously, this isn’t really meant for the average gamer as it’s main market is 3d rendering studios. Still, it’s amazing to see a single-core chip that can pump out 11 Teraflops.
