The new Titan has arrived for the RTX generation and the specs are as impressive as the $2500 price tag.
- 576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, providing up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance.
- 72 Turing RT Cores, delivering up to 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray-tracing performance.
- 24GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory with 672GB/s of bandwidth — 2x the memory of previous-generation TITAN GPUs — to fit larger models and datasets.
- 100GB/s NVIDIA NVLink can pair two TITAN RTX GPUs to scale memory and compute.
- Incredible performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing.
- VirtualLink port provides the performance and connectivity required by next-gen VR headsets.
From what The Inquirer saw over a weekend of YouTubing, the card sports a gold-coloured shroud, and requires two eight-pin PCIe power connectors. As of yet we don't have any benchmarks to show how it performs but from the sounds of the PR this will be of more use to content creators than gamers. However, that is unlikely to stop some from trying it out; stay tuned for more.
"The Titan RTX, dubbed fondly by Nvidia as 'T-Rex', is based on the same Turing architecture as the firm's RTX 2070, 2080 and bork-prone 2080 Ti GPUs, equipping it with 130 teraflops of deep learning performance and 11 GigaRays of ray-tracing performance. "
