Nvidia tops off its Turing range with the Titan RTX

Nvidia tops off its Turing range with the Titan RTX”

It's time for the RTX 2080 Ti to move over, because there's a new card climbing to the top of the RTX heap today.

Will Nvidia enable NVLink's full coherency on Titan RTX and properly allow more than one Titian/RTX GPU to share the same VRAM memory address space and any L2 cache coherency traffic between multi-GPU Titan RTX configurations.

Nvidia has revealed its flagship Titan RTX desktop GPU for artificial intelligence researchers, data scientists and content creators, but the beast of a graphics card will come at a high price: US$2499.

Previously, Nvidia's consumer-oriented RTX range - the first to be based around the new Turing architecture with its ray tracing RT and deep learning Tensor Core acceleration hardware - topped out at the already-fairly-expensive GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. The Turing powered TITAN Delivers 130 Teraflops of deep-learning horsepower along with 11 GigaRays of Ray-Tracing Performance to users with the most intensive workloads...and a lot of spare cash.

"Turing is Nvidia's biggest advance in a decade - fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU", Jensen Huang, Nvidia's CEO, said in a statement.

The NVIDIA Titan RTX will feature 6 Graphics Processing Clusters, 36 Texture Processing Clusters, will be clocked at 1350 MHz and can be turbo boosted at 1770 MHz.

24GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory with 672GB/s of bandwidth, twice the memory of previous-generation TITAN GPUs, to fit larger models and datasets.

NVIDIA will be launching the TITAN RTX - which company CEO Jensen Huang refers to as "T-Rex" in today's announcement - later this month in both the USA and Europe.

Performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing. If you thought the RTX 20-series prices were off-putting, the Titan RTX is going to be a bitter pill.
