The excellent NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 is probably the most short-lived King of the graphics cards, no thanks to the Titan X that was just revealed earlier today.
Of course, a Titan card isn’t entirely surprisingly – it was bound to happen. But surely, nobody expected the card to come so quickly right on the backs of the recent GTX 1080, 1070 and just a couple of days back, the 1060.
As you might expect, the NVIDIA Titan X is based on the new Pascal GPU architecture, is the biggest GPU ever built and has a staggering 3,584 CUDA cores. In contrast, the GTX 1080 has 2,560 CUDA cores.
So forget words, here are the numbers:
- 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)
There’s no doubting that this card will be insanely fast. In fact, NVIDIA has claimed that the Titan X is up to 60% faster than the previous generation Titan X. The TITAN X will be available August 2 for US$1,200 direct from www.nvidia.com in North America and Europe, as well as select partners. No dates have been set for Asia, but NVIDIA has told us that it will be “soon”.
In the meantime, you can check out the teaser video of the card right below:
