Nvidia has added yet another high-end card to its GPU line-up, called the Titan V. According tot he company, its ‘the most powerful GPU ever created’ which fetaures 21.1 billion transistors on a 815 mm2 that produces a whopping 110 teraflops of compute power.
Nvidia also asserts that the new Titan V offers up to 9x more processing power compared to the Titan XP, thanks to a potent combination of 12GB of HBM2 memory, 5120 CUDA cores, along with 640 ‘tenser cores’.
That said, the Titan V also gets a $2999 price tag compared to its predecesssor, which retailed for only $1299. Nvidia is also offering Black and Gold color optipns for its newest Titan V GPU.
“Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI. We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links,” Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang says in a statement. “With Titan V, we are putting Volta into the hands of researchers and scientists all over the world. I can’t wait to see their breakthrough discoveries.”
Interestingly, Nvidia is marketing the new Titan V as a workstation level AI compute card that can offer more computing power with its tensor cores. Therefore, it gets the Titan branding instead of GeForce TITAN. However, its still very much a video card at the end of the day, but Nvidia says it also offers massive neural networking performance advantages over earlier Nvidia cards. The company says it can be also be used for gaming, despite the fact that gaming may not be the primary focus of the card.
Titan V features 80 streaming multiprocessors (SMs) and 5120 CUDA cores. Elsewhere, it features a vapor chamber cooler with copper heatsink alongside 16 power phases. In terms of output, the Titan V comes with 3 DisplayPorts and 1 HDMI connector.
