NVIDIA: Pascal-based GeForce GTX Titan X to ship on August 2nd for $1,200

Posted on Friday, July 22 2016 @ 13:36:05 CEST by

NVIDIA surprises us with this out-of-the-blue announcement of the Pascal-based GeForce GTX Titan X! The naming of this product is highly confusing as it's exactly the same name as the previous GM200 based card, but the new GeForce GTX Titan X is indeed based on the 16nm FinFET GP102 GPU.

It's a paperlaunch but NVIDIA promises the new Titan X will be available August 2nd for $1,200 from the NVIDIA.com website. The card features a GP102 GPU with 3584 CUDA cores, 1417MHz base clock and 1531MHz Boost. It has 12 billion transistors, 12GB GDDR5X memory, 250W TDP and raw computing power of 11 teraflops (FP32).

Performance-wise, NVIDIA claims the new Titan X is up to 60 percent faster than its predecessor.
It began with a bet.

Brian Kelleher, our top hardware engineer, bet our CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, we could get more than 10 teraflops of computing performance from a single chip. Jen-Hsun thought that was crazy.

Well, we did it. The result is crazy. And, as of today, Jen-Hsun now owes Brian a dollar.

The new NVIDIA TITAN X, introduced today, based on our new Pascal GPU architecture, is the biggest GPU ever built. It has a record-breaking 3,584 CUDA cores.

We said our GTX 1080 delivers an “irresponsible amount of performance.” It was a bit reckless. But this is even more reckless.

So forget words. Here are its numbers:

  • 11 TFLOPS FP32
  • 44 TOPS INT8 (new deep learning inferencing instruction)
  • 12B transistors
  • 3,584 CUDA cores at 1.53GHz (versus 3,072 cores at 1.08GHz in previous TITAN X)
  • Up to 60% faster performance than previous TITAN X
  • High performance engineering for maximum overclocking
  • 12 GB of GDDR5X memory (480 GB/s)

    Did we go too far? Your call. Just don’t call us crazy, or you might owe Brian a dollar, too.

    TITAN X will be available Aug. 2 for $1,200 direct from nvidia.com in North America and Europe, and select system builders. It is coming soon to Asia.
