NVIDIA Unveils Pascal Based Titan X
Over the last few weeks NVIDIA has been announcing a new fleet of next-generation GPUs based on their new Pascal architecture. It all started with the GEFORCE GTX 1080 and 1070, then onto the GTX 1060 and now the new Titan X. NVIDIA’s new card could just be the most powerful AND most expensive card the market has ever seen.
The new Titan X is based on the next-generation Pascal GPU architecture. Considering the new GTX 1080 is based on the same architecture and can out preform the last-generation Titan X, it is safe to say that this next-generation card will pack quite the punch. The card was announced on July 21, 2016 and it will be available on August 2, 2016 in North America and Europe, along with select system builders. NVIDIA also said it would be coming to Asia “soon”. NVIDIA also revamped the card with a new “blacked-out” theme, that (in my opinion) looks great! The new card does not come cheap as it starts at $1,200 USD. NVIDIA shared some of the specs customers can expect from the card at the launch event. Below are the specs listed directly from NVIDIA and can be found here.
· 3,584 CUDA Cores at 1.53Ghz (as compared to 3,072 cores at 1.08GHz in the last-gen Titan X)
· 11 TFLOPS FP32
· 44 TOPS INT8
· 12 BILLION transistors
· Up to 60% faster performance than the previous Titan X
· 12GB of GDDR5X memory (480 GB/s)
· SLI Combatable
From the specs sheet alone, the next-generation Titan X looks like the Graphics card for serious power users. Reviews will begin popping up closer to August 2nd, but for now we can only image the possibilities.
