NVIDIA TITAN X creative professionals performance driver gets benchmarked

Posted on Tuesday, August 01 2017 @ 14:24:02 CEST by

As I wrote yesterday, NVIDIA rolled out a new creative professionals performance driver for its Titan Xp video cards. This should be seen as a reaction to AMD's Vega Frontier Edition. Under normal circumstances, NVIDIA is basically crippling the performance of its gaming cards to ensure professionals buy the much more expensive Quadro cards.

With this new Titan performance driver, NVIDIA is enabling all or some of the performance optimizations that are usually exclusively for the Quadro lineup. This means Titan X users get a big performance boost, but a lot of businesses will still need to stick with the Quadro lineup as those cards have certified drivers.

Reddit user brutuscat2 ran SPECviewperf 12.1 on his Pascal-based Titan X video card and reports huge performance increases. In most tests, there's a performance increase ranging from 53 percent to 107 percent. Siemens NX even sees a 654 percent increase in performance! Only Maya and Showcase are showing some performance progression, perhaps due to the use of outdated versions.

Isn't it amazing what a little bit of competition can do?
