There's a new NVIDIA Titan X in town, and it costs $1,200

After launching the GeForce GTX 1000 series on its new 16nm Pascal architecture, NVIDIA has revealed the flagship Titan X video card. Boasting 12GB of GDDR5X video memory on a 384-bit memory bus and 3,584 CUDA cores running at 1513MHz, the card offers an astounding 11 teraflops of performance. To put things into context, the GTX 1080 has 8.9 teraflops of performance.

The Titan X contains 12 billion transistors, and is based on the GP102 GPU. The video card consumers 250W of power at load, and offers DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, and DL-DVI ports.

The cost? The Titan X will be available for purchase starting August 2 for $1,200, more than double the cost of the GTX 1080. Unlike the GTX series — which is aimed at gamers — the Titan X will cater to those looking for vast amounts of compute performance.

  • Over rated........ NVIDIA I still love my ex lumia 520
  • Titan was supposed to have 4096cuda...
  • More than double the cost of the GTX 1080? The pricing is pretty much the same now due to the horrible pricing model they came up with. This'll end up being around 1,500.00 USD (even 1,800.00 USD if you're that unlucky) for the partner cards.
  • thats not a "normal" GPU its made for FANS and collectors. Its like a Ferrari for wealthy people
  • Has the Titan-series ever had partner cards?
  • Yes Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • My xbox has less teraflops
  • Still cheaper than Hololens :))
  • Zing! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • How do you know, the Hololens hasn't officially gone on sale to consumers yet. No a Dev kit is not intended to be "on sale to consumers"
  • Just imagine the guys who paid this much for the last gen titan x just to be overtaken by a 400$ current gen card. You must be stupid to buy such expensive cards and be underpowered in 2 years.
  • Devalued is the word.
  • Then again, anyone whose following the industry even a little would have known that would happen. I doubt the people who can afford these cards care, they'll just get new ones as they are available.
  • What game needs this lmao
  • X-Plane. But one could reasonnably argue that it doesn't qualify as game. The term GPU and CPU melter would be more appropriate :p
  • This is what I call confidence, because NVIDIA knows doesn't matter how overpriced, overhyped and overrated this card is, it will make money... And how much useless money people has got...
  • Radeon Pro Duo still much better, 1Tbps Bandwidth with same price, REAL Asynchronous hardware and also future proof.
  • The past iterations of Titan cards turned out to be wastes of money after less than a year. I can imagine this will be the same in the near future.
  • But can it play Crysis?
  • Yes, Crysis 5
