Rehashing an old name, NVIDIA will call this new graphics card the Titan X. You know, like the "new iPad" this is the "new TitanX." Here is the data we know about thus far:

Note: everything with a ? on is educated guesses on our part.

Obviously there is a lot for us to still learn about this new GPU and graphics card, including why in the WORLD it is still being called Titan X, rather than...just about anything else. That aside, GP102 will feature 40% more CUDA cores than the GP104 at slightly lower clock speeds. The rated 11 TFLOPS of single precision compute of the new Titan X is 34% better than that of the GeForce GTX 1080 and I would expect gaming performance to scale in line with that difference.

The new Titan X will feature 12GB of GDDR5X memory, not HBM as the GP100 chip has, so this is clearly a new chip with a new memory interface. NVIDIA claims it will have 480 GB/s of bandwidth, and I am guessing is built on a 384-bit memory controller interface running at the same 10 Gbps as the GTX 1080. It's truly amazing hardware.

What will you be asked to pay? $1200, going on sale on August 2nd, and only on NVIDIA.com, at least for now. Considering the prices of GeForce GTX 1080 cards with such limited availability, the $1200 price tag MIGHT NOT seem so insane. That's higher than the $999 starting price of the Titan X based on Maxwell in March of 2015 - the claims that NVIDIA is artificially raising prices of cards in each segment will continue, it seems.

I am curious about the TDP on the new Titan X - will it hit the 250 watt mark of the previous version? Yes, apparently it will it that 250 watt TDP - specs above updated. Does this also mean we'll see a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti that falls between the GTX 1080 and this new Titan X? Maybe, but we are likely looking at an $899 or higher SEP - so get those wallets ready. 

That's it for now; we'll have a briefing where we can get more details soon, and hopefully a review ready for you on August 2nd when the cards go on sale!

Thats like saying "Now that the Ford GT is out Mustangs are obsolete" Kinda not the same class/bracket. People who buy a Titan X might be the same person who buys a 1080, or two, but not the other way around.

My speculation is this. If I recall correctly, Nvidia pushed Volta back to 2018. So I wonder if they have decided to split the Pascal releases.

So we got GP104 (GTX 1080) this year. We're gonna get GP102 (Titan X MkII). They could also release a cut down GP102 as a 1080Ti (or not).

THEN next year they unleash GP100 with HBM2 memory which could give them the basis for several new products (new Titan, new 1080Ti) with a further performance increase.

$1,200 a lot of money for a card, but if you can afford a $1,000 gsync monitor, why not. This card will do 4k@60, the 1080 was close this will close that gap, the silicon valley trust fund kids just got their card, the rest of us got the 1060.

HAHAA OH MY GOD
Nvidia actually did it, the absolute madmen.

People were, at worst, expecting the Titan P to be $999~ - WHOOPS!
Oh, wow. That is absolutely hilarious.

Well, Nvidia fans, you got what you wanted (;

July 22, 2016 | 12:00 AM - Posted by quest4glory

No, at worst, more like $1699 to $1999 USD.

Who the hell was thinking that the Titan P was going to be 2K?
I think people might have set those expectations so they wouldn't be let down by the severe Nvidia price gouging.

July 22, 2016 | 01:12 AM - Posted by quest4glory

intel has already set precedent. This in comparison seems like a bargain to those with more discretionary cash than most.

July 22, 2016 | 01:36 AM - Posted by NamelessTed

The Titan Z launched at $3000 so its not like nVidia hasn't already set that precedent.

July 22, 2016 | 10:36 AM - Posted by quest4glory

That was a dual GPU card, and like this one, not specifically marketed to gamers. Most sites wouldn't even benchmark it in games.

July 23, 2016 | 03:14 PM - Posted by Scott Michaud

That's because NVIDIA didn't seed Titan Zs to gaming reviewers. Ryan had to get his from elsewhere IIRC. But yes, people were expecting the Titan X to hit $999, and it crept up $200, even with 12GB of GDDR, etc.

I am thinking "robbery" by them, so I guess they can afford to give a few away. These are desperate moves as he knows he will have real competition for the first time in years, already with the 480, and not soon enough for me, with the vega (and beyond).

July 22, 2016 | 05:53 PM - Posted by johnny rook (not verified)

I kinda of agree.

The last time I saw a rushed product like this by NVIDIA (yes, it's rushed! 1080 just came out), was when GTX 780Ti was announced 4 months only after GTX 780 was released to the public. And that happened because of AMD Hawaii.

I don't know but, I think NVIDIA knows what's coming with AMD Vega and are cashing out on Pascal as much as they can, so they can run with the money before AMD takes it.

Bought TX sli .. then we all know what happened with the 980ti .

Never regretted paying more for TX , and its paying off now as its a bit stronger than 980ti but ... i'll definitely be waiting this time to see what comes after.

The pricing is getting a little silly.

Faster than the 980Ti? nah the 980 Ti managed to beat the Titan X in benchmarks when it came out.. Something about the TDP of the titan x gimping it. and the 980ti cores being clocked much faster IIRC.

Titan x used to have FP64 compute but they got rid of that, now the only differentiator is the increase in VRAM because nvidia is not gonna gimp the 1080Ti to much, it needs every bit of that 35% to convince people who bought 1080's to upgrade again.

That is a beast... but for compute does it make sense ?

Because it seem the RX 480 is a little over 50% the TFLOP, and also over 50% the bandwidth. And cost $240 for 8GB.

So wouldn't it make sense to write code to distribute code over multiple GPU ?

I'm not dismissing this monster.. but at $1200 and 'only' 11TFlop, it seem very costly for what you get. Unless you absolutely need that in a single double slot card.

July 22, 2016 | 03:19 AM - Posted by Irishgamer01

So now we know why they want to do away with SLI.

Nvidia seem to intent on putting their cards out of reach of their own customers. I for one have not purchased any of their new range of cards. Not because I cannot afford them, but because I am a little sickened by their conduct. The Nvidia TAX, general price rises across the board, and they also seem to be behind the Anti SLI campaign that seems to have creeped into the Nvidia friendly media.

Will wait for Vaga. I doubt AMD's ability but without hope its hard to see a future in hight end gaming being nerfed by nvidia greed.

If ever there was a time for AMD to get their act together, this is it. I predict crowds of angry nvidia fanboys just itching to stick it too nvidia.

Nvdiots note I own nvidia 8 cards. 4x980ti 2x980 2x970

July 22, 2016 | 03:36 AM - Posted by JohnGR

$1200? So maybe $799-$999 for the 1080Ti in maybe November, which means that 1080 will drop probably to $499-$549(if 1080Ti comes at $799) by that time. At least the MSRP and with a question mark if you will be able to find a GP104 close to it's MSRP by then.

Also it will be interesting to see if in case of a price drop in a few months, Nvidia will drop the prices for both MSRP and Founder Edition, or just the MSRP.

July 24, 2016 | 07:31 PM - Posted by Allyn Malventano

I'd be kinda surprised if we saw a drop in Founders ed prices. I think they'll just let the board partners drop theirs and let FE shipments taper off.

1080 just lost all of its appeal. Price drop imminent.

July 22, 2016 | 10:06 AM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Maybe if this thing was priced at $1000. They made this thing $1200 specifically so they didn't have to drop the price of the 1080.

July 22, 2016 | 04:48 AM - Posted by Anonymous (not verified)

Peak compute for the 1080 is (2560 * 2 * 1.733) = 8873 TF, so just under 8.9 TF. Not 8.2 - that's the base value of (2560 * 2 * 1.607) = 8228 TF.

New Titan is (3584 * 2 * 1.417) = 10157 TF up to (3584 * 2 * 1.531) = 10974.

100% price hike for 23% improvement. Cool.

July 23, 2016 | 04:43 AM - Posted by StephanS

Yep, its amazing what high clock can do....

AMD 14nm process at 1.7 ghz would have ended nvidia.

A 40% faster RX 480 (same number of transistor) would beat a GTX 1070.

AMD badly need to up the clock rate of its 14nm GPU, this would be like printing hundreds of millions in free money.

July 24, 2016 | 12:43 AM - Posted by Jason Elmore (not verified)

they wont tho. the 14nm process is sub standard compared to TSMC's 16nm. Apple showed us that when it made the A8 and the 14nm chips ran so much hotter, but were smaller. Nvidia will gladly take the slightly bigger die for consistency. with 14nm, you never know what your gonna get, and each fab (samsung's, IBM's, etc..) all do 14nm slightly differently.

Artificially raising prices? You all are under a misconception about how money works.

If your company continually makes something better from generation to generation, prices can only stay flat if the currency's purchasing power stays flat too...

The US dollar, like most currencies in countries that engage in idiocy like quantitative easing and leveraged debt trading, constantly loses value.

Its not simple inflation and you cant expect zero price change along with innovation when the currency youre buying with is constantly losing value.

So it'll come out at $1200 and be great until 3 months later when the Ti releases for $800 and has 97% of the Titan's performance. No I'm not bitter about last year's Titan X release.

July 22, 2016 | 09:59 AM - Posted by '47 Knucklehead (not verified)

When there is a 1080Ti, it will most likely be in Q1 or so of 2017. Why? Because AMD has nothing to even come close to the GTX 1080 now except MAYBE their $1500 Radeon Duo card based on last years technology. Even if the RX 490 is a dual GPU RX 480 on a card, it won't give the 1080, much less this card, any real competition. The only thing that nVidia has to worry about is Vega, due out sometime in 2017. nVidia will use the GTX 1080Ti as a stop gap between the time that AMD drops Vega and before nVidia is ready to drop Volta. Besides, you act as if either video card company never comes out with a cheaper card months later.

So this still isn't the fabled GP100 with HBM2 memory. So what is that beast going to be like when it arrives? And it ought to be positioned above Titan, so just how expensive will it be?

Sounds like Nvidia is continuing their evil masterplan of raising all their price points as they please. We seriously need AMD to be competing at the top end of the market to stop Nvidia's run away pricing policy.

July 22, 2016 | 07:37 AM - Posted by Baldrick's Trousers (not verified)

Another thought. I understand Nvidia has Volta slated for 2018. So what are they going to be doing next year in 2017? I wonder if they have decided to hold GP100/HBM2 based cards back to give themselves something to release next year?

The problem with Dual chip GPU cards like those is that not all games will take proper advantage of both GPU chips and scale properly.

AMD still don't have a single chip GPU product that can perform on a par with Nvidia's top end cards. Now don't think I'm some kind of fanboy. I buy whatever will give me the performance I want. Right now that is Nvidia.

But I WANT AMD to be performing in the same space, because otherwise without true competition between equivalent products from AMD and Nvidia, there's nothing to keep prices down.

nvidia is sure good at keynote hype!!

Maxwell keynote: stacked VRAM and ARM Cores to assist with GPU rendering

Pascal Keynote: HBM2 and new form factor for consumer GPU.

Turns out maxwell arm cores was denver k1, and pascal hbm2 was for Telsa only.. They didnt tell us that, instead they made us think the consumer Gaming cards were getting these features.

Whatever volta promised, i'm taking with a grain of salt, because most of those cool features will be restricted to either Mobile GPU's or Telsa ASIC's

I would love to get one. Just not for $1200! $999 maybe. $1200 there is no way I would pay that much.

It's not $2000.00, so AMD's competition has had a slight effect of Nvidia's pricing across all of it's consumer SKUs.

And Really, "Donning the leather jacket he goes very few places without", not so that's only for show to make JHH appear as common as Joe Six Pack, but JHH is all Blue or Black business suit on the inside and plaid on the links. Oh look at me JHH says under his breath, They eat this leather jacket bit up Hook, Line, and sinker! Yes that's the ticket, now go and hock your wife's jewelry and get my pricy kit! It's Bling Bling for the ding a lings!

There are no leather jackets allowed at the 19th hole at that very exclusive links, proper attire required! Oh the Dogs and Ponys from JHH!

I'm guessing now that the Titan line is being pushed to $1200, that the Ti line will not be getting closer and closer to $1000. Possibly $899? There's no way 1080ti will be priced anywhere near 980ti, since 1080 alone is more expensive.

This is the evolution of a low competition market.

What prompted them to announce Titan-X now? A good theory is that AMD is very close to announcing the release of Vega.

Let's hope for the best. THe 480 is a good card but not that good as AMD advertise ( I'm up for a Nitro for the holidays ).

I have to agree. Seen it before with GTX 780Ti vs Hawaii GPU in 2013

It sounds great and all, but can it do async compute???

July 22, 2016 | 12:39 PM - Posted by Penteract (not verified)

Yeah for me the trouble with this thing is that by the time I save up the money for it Volta will be out. But then it really isn't targeted at me, it's targeted at those that don't have to save up money to buy the most expensive hardware. :)

And who does Nvidia thing they are with that kind of price, Intel? :D

1070 and 1080 is midrange cards at high-end prices, crazy how easy it is to fool people by changing a few numbers, Ngreedia has seen the last dollar from me!

July 22, 2016 | 06:08 PM - Posted by johnny rook (not verified)

You must think a GPU with ~600mm2 costs a penny to develop and manufature in 16mn, I'm sure.

Anyways, high prices are not good for consumers but, ultimately they also benefit AMD, don't you think?

AMD just needs to price the card $20 less and everybody will praise the fact - doesn't necesserally translate in noticeable market share gains but, praised nevertheless.

July 25, 2016 | 12:45 PM - Posted by extide

This GPU is likely in the 450mm^2 range with the removal of most of the DP FP stuff. Sure, it costs a lot to design, but this price is un-precedented.

EDIT: Confirmed, die size is 471mm2, has same FP64 and FP16 rate as GP104.

July 22, 2016 | 03:45 PM - Posted by ChrisMag (not verified)

I don't really understand why people are upset about the price. It seems simple - sell GP102 cards at a high price to absorb the initial cost of producing new chips with a lower yield (my guess).

It's no different than any other discretionary purchase. If you don't like the price or can't afford one, don't buy it. It's the same with any toy.

More importantly, we have cards approaching the performance of a 2 year old GTX980 for $199-249, which is an amazing value when you consider that similar performance was 2x-3x the cost 24 months ago.

Anounced only a month and half after 1080 release and with no HBM2? Feels like a rushed product to me.

I don't know but, I think NVIDIA knows what's coming with AMD Vega and are cashing out on Pascal as much as they can, so they can run with the money before AMD takes it.

July 22, 2016 | 06:13 PM - Posted by johnny rook (not verified)

Give it another month or two, NVIDIA announces its GP102 GTX 1080Ti, prices it at $650 or $700, cuts GTX 1080 to $500 and pisses every 1080 owner off!

Seen it before with GTX 780Ti and GTX 780.

Mark my words

Fool me once, shame on you;
Fool me twice, shame on me.

AMD got no card for the next 6 month that could remotely compete.
nvidia can price its card with zero competition.

So no. the 1080ti will be in above $800

Absolutely zero reason for nvidia to do any price adjustments.

Seeing how hot the 1080 FE gets this is going to be on whole new level

I love the sinister black styling. Shame I'm gonna rip all that off and fit a waterblock. Undoubtedly EK will be working on a WB for this thing.

$1.2K is a shit ton of money to spend... I'd would spend around $500-$650 to upgrade new graphics card. Nevertheless, technology is constantly changing and adapting, and thus I see how cyclical road pattern works. For instance, new architecture is always going to be faster and efficient than older architecture which means older architecture becomes obsolete.

No hbm2?

Only 12gb?

No gp100?

Bit of a letdown especially since they axed 3 way and 4 way.
