Nvidia Pascal GTX Titan X Launched with 12GB GDDR5X VRAM, 60% Faster Than Predecessor
Nvidia has just unveiled their fastest graphics card yet, the Pascal GTX Titan X. This ultimate graphics card is based on their monstrous GP102 GPU which is capable of delivering 4K performance at the smoothest 60 FPS. The latest Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X is aimed at the enthusiast gamers and should be available in the first week of August.
The Pascal GTX Titan X is a beast with “record-breaking” 3,584 CUDA cores which are clocked at an insane core clock of 1.41GHz and boost clock of 1.53GHz. The GP102 packs 12 billion transistors compared to 7.2 billion transistors on GP104, which is indeed a massive leap. The chip will push around 11 TFLOPS of single precision and 44 TOPs INT8 calculations (new deep learning instructions).
The Pascal GP102 appears to be identical to the GP100 with 64 Core per SM which means we’re looking at around an ROP count of 96 and TMU count of 224. The card will however not feature the HBM2 memory, but the 12GB of GDDR5X which is clocked at 10 GB/s delivering a cumulative bandwidth of 480 GB/s.
