NVIDIA officially unveils its flagship Titan RTX GPU
NVIDIA today announced the Titan RTX, the most powerful video card in the world, capable of guaranteeing extraordinary performances for the development of artificial intelligence, data science and creative applications. Available at the end of the month for a mere $2,500 ( R35,000).
The Titan RTX is designed for a variety of computationally demanding applications, TITAN RTX offers an unbeatable combination of artificial intelligence, real-time ray tracing graphics, next-generation virtual reality and high-performance computing.
“Turing is NVIDIA’s biggest advance in a decade – fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU,” said Jensen Huang, founder, and CEO of NVIDIA. “The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users — developers, scientists, and content creators.” – NVIDIA
TITAN RTX turns the PC into a supercomputer for researchers and developers of Artificial Intelligence. TITAN RTX provides multi-precision Tensor CoreTuring for revolutionary performance from FP32, FP16, INT8 and INT4, enabling faster training and inference of neural networks. It offers twice the storage capacity of the previous generation TITAN GPUs, along with NVLink to allow researchers to conduct experiments with neural networks and larger datasets. If you are a content creator with deep pockets the TITAN RTX brings the power of real-time ray tracing and artificial intelligence to creative applications, so 5 million PC creators can iterate processes faster. TITAN RTX also offers computing power and memory bandwidth required for real-time 8K video editing.
Moving on to the specifications, the TITAN RTX uses the full TU102 GPU configuration with 6 GPCs, 36 TPCs, 72 SMs and 4608 CUDA Cores arranged within those SMs. There’s also 576 Tensor Cores and 72 RT cores that handle the bulk of AI/DNN and Raytracing workloads. The clock speeds will be maintained at 1350 MHz for the base and 1770 MHz for the boost frequency. The card features 24 GB of GDDR6 VRAM along a 384-bit bus interface that is clocked at 7.00 Gbps (14.00 Gbps effective) clock.
