2 Nvidia Titan V Graphics Cards In SLI Will Cost You $7,196 Because of the NVLink
Nvidia has just released the Nvidia Titan V and the graphics card has a huge price tag but also has some incredible performance to offer. You can check out the benchmarks of the Nvidia Titan V here. Although the graphics card is not for gaming, we have some gaming numbers.
The numbers show that the Nvidia Titan V is able to beat an overclocked GTX 1080 Ti at stock speeds. As mentioned before the graphics card is pretty expensive but getting 2 will cost you even more. The cards will cost you $2999 each and you will also need to get the NVLink bridge in order for the cards to play well with one another.
Update: Nvidia Titan V does not support NVLink or SLI. According to Nvidia: Titan V does not support SLI or NV Link which is confusing because the NVLink ports are there on the graphics cards.
The NVLink bridge is not cheap either and one of them will cost you $599. As the graphics cards use 2 you will need to buy a pair which will set you back $1198. Add all this up and the SLI setup for the Nvidia Titan V will cost you $7196 which is a lot of money. But then again this is the price that professionals will be paying for the superior hardware.
The graphics card features the GV100 GPU, 640 Tensor Cores, 320 texture units, and 110 TFLOPs of GPU performance for AI-related algorithms. According to Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang:
“Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI. We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links. With TITAN V, we are putting Volta into the hands of researchers and scientists all over the world. I can’t wait to see their breakthrough discoveries.”
