The 3DMark performance of Nvidia’s Pascal-based Titan X graphics card has been leaked. As one would expect, the insanely powerful card was able to churn out impressive scores when tested with the Fire Strike series of tests – despite being low on precision compute performance.
The launch date for the Pascal-based Titan X is on the 2nd of August and according to sources, not many reviews of the graphics card will be out on launch day; which is expected given how pricey the graphics card is. It’s worth noting that the chart below comprises of the Fire Strike scores of Nvidia’s Pascal-based graphics cards based on benchmark runs by VideoCardz (aside from the new Titan X).
Based on the chart above, one can clearly see that the new Titan X managed to achieve significantly higher scores in both Fire Strike and Fire Strike Ultra tests compared to the more “wallet friendly” GTX 1080. To be more specific, the new Titan X had a Fire Strike and Fire Strike Ultra scores of 26,660 and 6,532 respectively. The same level of dominance can also be observed when the new Titan X is compared against other recently released high-end Nvidia graphics cards.
That said, a pair of GTX 1080s and GTX 1070s would definitely be faster than the new Titan X in synthetic benchmarks (and games with good multi-GPU scaling). Knowing this, it wouldn’t make much “economical” sense for someone to splash out US$1,200 (about RM4,864; will definitely be priced higher in Malaysia) for a graphics card that can be matched or beaten by pairing two high-end Pascal-based graphics card that costs slightly lower (RM5,920 for two Palit GeForce GTX 1080 JetStream).
