Nvidia Pascal based Titan X Could Launch on Aug 17th – 50% Faster Than GTX 1080 with HBM2 Memory
Following the release of the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, Nvidia is currently readying to launch their mid-range Pascal based solution, the GeForce GTX 1060, on July 7th. However, it seems that the company has another Pascal card in the store which is even more powerful than the GTX 1080.
Rumor has it that Nvidia’s next generation Pascal based Titan X is a monster with at least 50% higher performance than the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition. The report comes from VR World which recently had an hands-on experience with the Pascal GP102-based GTX Titan X successor.
According to details revealed, the next-gen Titan X will have boards in both 8+8-pin and 8+6-pin configuration, with the PCIe power connectors being placed at the front of the card, rather than on top. The TDP is expected to be rated at 300W for the 8+6-pin version, and up to 375W for 8+8-pin configuration. Below is a 8+6-pin configuration on a 30cm / 12″ long Tesla PCB:
The report further suggests that the Pascal based Titan X will be available in two versions, the 16GB and 12GB, with HBM2 memory clocked higher than it was for the Tesla family of GPUs. If inside sources of VR World are to be believed, the upcoming Pascal GPU could now be bound by the CPU. Nvidia engineers reportedly claim that the even Intel’s new Core i7-6950X isn’t powerful enough to feed the card in enthusiast level scenarios.
Nvidia is expected to unveil the Pascal based Titan X on August 17th at this year’s Gamescom trade fair to be held in Cologne, Germany.
