The Nvidia Titan Xp has just been announced and it is better than what we previously got with the Nvidia Titan XP. The original Titan X came out in 2105 and we got the refresh, the Titan XP last year. Now we have the Nvidia Titan Xp.
The Nvidia Titan Xp has the following specifications:
- 12GB GDDR5X memory operating at 11.4 Gbps
- Maximum memory bandwidth of 548Gbps
- 3,840 CUDA cores running at a clock speed of 1.6GHz
- 12 TFLOPs of compute power
- Available direct from NVIDIA with an MSRP of $1,200
The Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti falls behind here with just 3,584 CUDA cores, which competes well with the previous Titan but is less than the new one. There is no information regarding the TDP of the Titan Xp so we cannot comment about that at the moment.
If you bought the GTX 1080 Ti thinking that it is the most powerful consumer GPU on the market then you were wrong. The new Titan Xp takes its place.
You might think differently from a price to performance perspective, the Titan Xp is priced almost double that of the GTX 1080 Ti. For the money that you are paying you would expect double the performance but we all know that is not how things work.
It is safe to say that the Nvidia Titan Xp is not a GPU for everyone and even though you might want one there are a very few people that will actually need one. This is for the enthusiast for whom money is no object and no compromise is made on graphics.
As of right now local pricing has not been disclosed but you can buy the GPU directly from the Nvidia store for $1200, which is no small amount. We will let you know how well the GPU performs when we have statistics.
Let us know what you think about the Nvidia Titan Xp and whether or not you are interested in getting one of these beasts.
