NVIDIA has just announced the company’s latest Titan graphics card at the NIPS 2017 conference, the Titan V. The Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) is a conference that focuses on AI and deep learning and the Titan V will definitely serve the purpose for users interested in it. However, we don’t think many gamers would like to part with $3000 for a single GPU as of now.
The Titan V comes merely after 7 months after the company announced Volta with Tesla V100 accelerator and the GV100 GPU inside it. The company claims that the Titan V can perform 110 teraflops of information from its 21.1 billion transistors. The GPU has 12GB of HBM2 memory, 5120 CUDA cores, and 640 “tensor cores” that helps offer up to 9 times the deep-learning as compared to the predecessor.
As compared to the Titan Xp, the Titan V has 1,280 more CUDA cores and is clocked slightly higher as well. The new GPU has a base clock of 1200MHz and a boost clock of 1455MHz. Where the Titan Xp has a bandwidth of 480GB/s, the Titan V has a 653GB/s bandwidth. The full specifications and differences can be found in the image below.
The NVIDIA Titan V has a vapor chamber cooler with a copper heatsink and 16 power phases, all which require a total of 250W TDP. As for output, the Titan V brings 3 DisplayPorts and 1HDMI connector. The GPU sports a gold and black color, which looks pretty cool as well. The GPU is available today and is limited to two per customer.
Talking about the new product, NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang said,
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. 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.
