After making a sparse appearance across several major online sites, NVIDIA has finally and officially lifted the veil on the TITAN RTX graphics card. It’s most powerful desktop GPU to date.
Like the brand’s current range of cards, the TITAN RTX runs on NVIDIA’s Turing GPU architecture. However -and much like its predecessor – the TITAN V, this desktop GPU is designed for the realm of AI research, data science, and creative applications.
To that end, the card houses a beastly 24GB of GDDR6 graphics memory, backed by 576 Tensor Cores and 72 Turing ray-tracing (RT) cores. Statistically, this allows the card to deliver up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance, and up to 11 GigaRays of real-time ray-tracing performance per second.
As if that isn’t powerful enough, the card can also be paired with a second TITAN RTX via NVIDIA NVLink. As a single GPU, though, the card’s enormous power still allows it to render and edit 8K videos in real-time.
The NVIDIA TITAN RTX is slated for availability a little later this month, both in the US and in the EU. As you’d expect, the card won’t be cheap with its official retail price of US$2499 (~RM10358). There’s no word when and if NVIDIA will be selling the card within the Asia Pacific region.
