Nvidia Unveils New Titan X Graphics Card


Speaking at a gathering of deep learning experts at Stanford University, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang confirmed that the company will be launching a new flagship Titan series graphics card based on the same new Pascal architecture as the recent GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and1060 GPUs. The new card will be called Nvidia Titan X, apparently dropping the GeForce branding for the first time since the Titan series debuted. It will be priced at an incredible $1200 (approximately Rs. 80,515 before taxes and duties) and will be targeted not only at the world’s most demanding gamers, but also at researchers and corporations developing tools for deep learning and artificial intelligence.

Architectural details are light at the moment. Nvidia has not confirmed the codename of the new GPU, which is undoubtedly larger than the GP104 which both the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 are based on. The new Titan X has 12 billion transistors in the form of 3,584 programmable CUDA cores. It runs at up to 1.53GHz and can achieve throughput of 11 Teraflops. It will also have 12GB of high-speed GDDR5X memory on a 384-bit wide bus resulting in 480GBps of memory bandwidth.
