NVIDIA’S TITAN RTX GPU revealed with 24 GB GDDR6 Memory, 130 TFLOPs AI Learning
NVIDIA officially unveiled their Turing-powered TITAN RTX graphics card yesterday at the 2018 Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems in Montreal, Canada.
According to the company, TITAN RTX is “the world’s most powerful desktop GPU” that offers massive performance for AI research, data science, and creative applications.
The TITAN RTX, which NVIDIA has dubbed T-Rex, is driven by the new NVIDIA Turing architecture. It can deliver 130 Teraflops of deep learning performance and 11 GigaRays of ray-tracing performance to world’s most demanding users.
“Turing is NVIDIA’s biggest advance in a decade – fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU. The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users — developers, scientists and content creators,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA.
“NVIDIA’s greatest leap since the invention of the CUDA® GPU in 2006 and the result of more than 10,000 engineering-years of effort, Turing features new RT Cores to accelerate ray tracing, plus new multi-precision Tensor Cores for AI training and inferencing. These two engines — along with more powerful compute and enhanced rasterization — enable capabilities that will transform the work of millions of developers, designers and artists across multiple industries.”
Designed for a variety of computationally demanding applications, TITAN RTX provides an unbeatable combination of AI, real-time ray-traced graphics, next-gen virtual reality and high-performance computing.
According to NVIDIA in its announcement, the TITAN RTX will feature:
- 576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, providing up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance.
- 72 Turing RT Cores, delivering up to 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray-tracing performance.
- 24GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory with 672GB/s of bandwidth — 2x the memory of previous-generation TITAN GPUs — to fit larger models and datasets.
- 100GB/s NVIDIA NVLink can pair two TITAN RTX GPUs to scale memory and compute.
- Incredible performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing.
- VirtualLink port provides the performance and connectivity required by next-gen VR headsets.
As far as specifications are concerned, TITAN RTX has 6 GPCs, 36 TPCs, 72 SMs, 4608 CUDA cores, and 72 RT Cores. It has a base clock of 1350MHz, with the boost clock maxing at 1770MHz. The memory is clocked at 7000MHz and offers a data rate of 14Gbps. For more detailed information on specifications, click here.
TITAN RTX will be available for sale later this December in the U.S. and Europe for a hefty price of $2,499.
