When it was first shown to the world for the first time at GDC 2015 earlier this month, NVIDIA only revealed three things about its brand new GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card: how it looks like, 12GB of VRAM, and 8 billion transistors. The company promised to reveal more info about its new high-end graphics card at its own GPU Technology Conference that kicked off earlier today and yes…NVIDIA has kept its promise.
Equipped with NVIDIA’s new 28nm GM200 GPU, the new Titan X features 3,072 stream processors (or CUDA cores, as NVIDIA calls them), 192 texture mapping units, and 96 raster operations unit. The card runs at a base clock speed of 1000 MHz that can dynamically rise up to 1075 MHz.
In terms of memory, Titan X features a 384-bit memory interface together with 12GB GDDR5 VRAM that runs at 7 GHz. Altogether, the card apparently able to deliver 7 TFLOPS worth of single precision performance as well as 0.2 TFLOPS double precision performance at 250W TDP.
At the same time, NVIDIA also claims that Titan X has 33% higher texture filtering rate and 50% more peak memory bandwidth than GeForce GTX 980. Apart from DirectX 12, it goes without saying that the Titan X pretty much supports plenty of NVIDIA’s in-house techs such as Physx, MFAA, VXGI, SLI, VR Direct, and the upcoming VR SLI.
Meanwhile, NVIDIA has also stated that Titan X is also designed for overclocking. Hence, the company has strengthen the card with 6-phase power supply with overvoltaging capability in addition to another 2-phase power supply specifically for its 12GB GDDR5 memory. In total, the Titan X’s GPU receives 275W worth of power at maximum power target setting of 110%.
In fact, the company claimed that Titan X cards have managed to hit 1.4GHz during its internal testing even though they are running on reference air cooling. Together with the help of improved airflow design, NVIDIA has also quipped Titan X with polarized capacitors and molded inductors to help the card operates more quietly.
Available immediately from NVIDIA with add-in board partners to follow suit within the next few weeks, the retail version of NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X will continue to carry the reference design cooling system and is priced at USD 999 (around RM 3,695).
