The Titan Xp is one of the most high-end GPUs that Nvidia is selling to the consumers. The GPU costs $1,199 and has much to offer with GP102 GPU, 3,840 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and 12 GB of GDDR5X memory. The graphics card features a 384-bit wide memory interface. Now the Titan XP has even more features with the new Nvidia driver update.
The Nvidia driver update is aimed at professionals rather than gamers and delivers increased performance in creative applications like Maya. It is debatable whether or not this is a move to tackle AMD Vega and the performance it has to offer the professional market as professional Nvidia GPUs cost thousands of dollars and AMD is providing relatively similar performance in much less.
According to Nvidia’s official blog, the new Nvidia driver update will enable the Titan XP to provide 3 times more performance in creative applications. One can wonder why this feature was locked away in the first place. It is possible that this was done so in order to differentiate the Titan XP from the more expensive professional graphics cards.
