NVIDIA revealed the GTX Titan X card at the Game Developers Conference earlier this month but decided to keep the specs a secret. Finally the company has formally announced the card today at the GPU Technology Conference and it is every bit as impressive as the rumors had claimed.
The GTX Titan X is based on NVIDIA’s 28nm GM200 Maxwell GPU and packs a total of 3,072 CUDA cores. It also includes 192 Texture Mapping Units (TMUs), 96 Raster Operators (ROPs), and 384-bit GDDR5 memory interface with a whopping 12GB of memory. It has a TDP of 250W, same as the previous Titan card.
Coming to the performance, NVIDIA claims a peak compute performance of 7.1 TFLOPS. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang mentioned during the announcement that the GTX Titan X is capable of completing a scientific application in three days that used to take forty three days with current GPUs.
The NVIDIA GTX Titan X will be available in reference design soon at a price-tag of $999, which is exactly the same as the previous Titan cards.
