Nvidia unveils ' world's most powerful' Turing-Powered TITAN RTX desktop GPU

Nvidia unveils ' world's most powerful' Turing-Powered TITAN RTX desktop GPU

The card features almost the same raytracing performance as the Ti, but increased deep-learning muscle with 576 multi-precision Tensor Cores resulting in a hefty 130 TFLOPS of deep learning performance.

The Titan RTX delivers high-end performance for demanding applications with 576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores for deep learning performance, 72 Turing RT cores for ray-tracing performance and 24 gigabytes of high-speed GDDR6 memory, double the memory of last-generation Titan GPUs.

Titan RTX is essentially an unabashed representation of the full Turing TU102 GPU. A listing for the GPU is already live on NVIDIA's website, but get ready to shell out some serious cash to take one home, because the TITAN RTX costs a whopping $2,499.

Alabama, gunning for its sixth national title in the past 10 years, plays Big 12 champion Oklahoma at 8 p.m. The two teams last met in the 2014 Sugar Bowl where the Sooners beat the Crimson Tide 45-31.

"Turing is NVIDIA's biggest advance in a decade - fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU", said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. The hype building exercise involves social media "influencers" inserting Nvidia RTX Titan hardware and/or packaging somewhere in their shared photos or videos, some more subtly than others. Of particular interest for data scientists will be the fact that the Titan RTX supports RAPIDS, the open-source libraries that integrate with popular data science workflows to boost machine learning use cases.

But here's the kicker, the new Titan is paired with 24GB GDDR6 memory at 672GB/s of bandwidth, significantly faster than the previous Titans. The RTX 2080 ships with 2,944 cores active, while the RTX 2080 Ti has just 4,352 cores. The dual-slot design includes dual fans over a vapour chamber cooler covered in diecast aluminium, while an NVLink bridge to allow for two cards in a single system.

VirtualLink port provides the performance and connectivity required by next-gen VR headsets.
