Nvidia has, rather surprisingly, unveiled its newest graphics card called the Titan V. As its name implies, Nvidia’s new flagship graphics card is based off of the company’s Volta architecture. Interestingly, we’ve actually seen this graphics card before thanks to a leak allegedly from an Nvidia intern in May.
That aside, when it comes to specifications, the Nvidia Titan V is equipped with the Volta-based GV100 GPU (12nm), which is even further enhanced with 12GB of HBM2 memory (first ever Titan graphics card to have this memory controller). In addition, this graphics card also features 5,120 CUDA Cores, 640 Tensor Cores, and a single-precision floating point compute performance of 15 TFLOPS. Meanwhile, clock speeds of the Nvidia Titan V is rated at 1200MHz (base) and 1455MHz (boost).
All of the specifications stated above are, of course, higher compared to the older Pascal-based Titan Xp graphics card; the only exception being slower clock speeds on the new Titan V. Due to the use of HBM2, the Nvidia’s newest graphics card now boasts a memory bandwidth speed of 653GBps – 106GBps higher than the Titan Xp. One “new” feature that comes with the Titan V that is absent on the Titan Xp is Tensor Performance for deep learning (110 TFLOPS).
Design-wise, the Titan V graphics card seem to come with the same cooler shroud and cooling system as the Titan Xp. That said, the cooler shroud on the Titan V does come in flamboyant gold – probably to reflect its insane horsepower. Speaking of insanity, Nvidia has mentioned that the Titan V will come at a ludicrous price of US$2,999 (about RM12,222). At this price point, it seems rather obvious that this graphics card isn’t aimed towards PC gamers at all.
