Nvidia launches Titan Xp

Nvidia launches Titan Xp

Nvidia has officially launched the Titan Xp, a top-end, GP102-based, consumer-grade graphics card boasting impressive performance and an even more eyebrow-raising price tag.

Nvidia has officially launched its most powerful GP102-based graphics card yet, the confusingly named Nvidia Titan Xp, but if you're looking to pick one up you'll be paying a whopping £1,200 for the privilege.

Designed to sit very firmly at the top end of the company's consumer-grade lineup - missing as it does the features of a pro-grade graphics card, such as ECC memory and non-nobbled double-precision floating point compute performance - the Nvidia Titan Xp is thus far the most powerful GP102-based graphics card the company has released. Its name, sadly, seems destined to confuse: Its immediate predecessor, the Titan X Pascal, is commonly though unofficially known as the Titan XP or Titan Xp to differentiate its architecture from the earlier and original Titan X that was built on the Maxwell architecture.

The new Titan Xp, not to be confused with the older Titan X Pascal, boasts some impressive specifications: The card includes a 12GB GDDR5X frame buffer with a throughput of 11.4 gigabits per second (Gb/s), the GP102 graphics processor has 3,840 active CUDA cores running at a boost clock of 1,582MHz - though, oddly, Nvidia isn't sharing the native clock - apiece, and overall the card offers a claimed 12 trillion floating-point operations per second (TFLOPS) of compute performance. Two-way SLI is supported should anyone fancy splashing out £2,400 on graphics cards. The card is claimed to max out at 250W. Oddly, the card includes the same 'Titan X' markings as its predecessor, with no 'p' suffix in sight - something that will doubtless do little to fix the naming confusion Nvidia has created.

While the Titan Xp is an undeniably impressive beast, it's the pricing which will raise the most eyebrows: Nvidia is asking a whopping £1,200 (inc VAT) per card, with a limit of two per customer. Full details, plus a link to order the card, are available on Nvidia's official product page.

I've completely given up trying to make sense of nVidia's naming scheme for the Titans now. Honestly, if it wasn't for CUDA, I'd go back to Radeon and be totally happy. If only some of the software I use had an OpenCL version... :( as it is, I'm stuck with either a) using nVidia GPUs, or b) things taking weeks instead of days to process.

So they have three cards now all called the same thing. LOL.

Nah, it'll be Titan XXXPe3n - But abbreviated to Titan X3.

What I want to know is why Nvidia released this with little fanfare?

EDIT: Reminds me of the Radeon Pro Duo launch.

Rushed it to throw shade on the Project Scorpio announcement. Not that Nvidia's still bitter about losing the contract, of course(!)

Probably because it's not a big deal to many at that price point. Nvidia has a 1 generation effective net lead now. This is the sort of do as you please approach that happens at that point.

Diversion tactic to all the Ryzen news that is basically saying Nvidias drivers are crap and not working well in threaded scenarios DX12 etc.

Does Scorpio utilise a full fat Polaris GPU then? I heard even the 5XX (i.e. 4xx with extra cores) series will not be using a full implementation. Kinda confusing.

All Microsoft has given is the Tflops figure, that's the advantage of custom soc you can say nothing and nobody really knows outside of AMD or Microsoft.

They have given some base stats for the cpu and the memory capacity.

Console crowd won't care for such things though xx

I'm willing to put down money that at some point a Titan XYZ will be made.

I reckon it will be called Titan Ultra, and I also reckon it will cost $1500.

Recently AdoredTV did some research and it seems that the majority considered $1500 their limit. Can't see Nvidia complaining for the free market research and yeah, I reckon before long they will start using the ultra moniker again too.

AMD should release something really competitive on the high end, nvidia prices are nuts lol
