NVIDIA Launches Most Powerful Titan GPU Yet

The next model in the new NVIDIA Turing line of Titan graphics cards is the Titan RTX, and with over 130 teraflops of performance and 11 GigaRays of ray-tracing performance. That makes the Titan RTX the most powerful GPU on the market.

“Turing is NVIDIA’s biggest advance in a decade – fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users — developers, scientists and content creators.”

Designed to tackle effortless 8K and virtual reality video workflows, the NVIDIA Titan RTX (also known as the “T-Rex”) has over 24GB of GDDR6 RAM memory, twice that of previous Titan GPUS, and over 672 GB/s of bandwidth, that can work in concert with NVIDIA’s NVLink for an additional 100 GB/s. Thanks to it’s Turing architecture, two cards can be daisy chained together to handle higher end workflows.

Specs include:

  • 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

The Titan RTX was designed with the heavy lifting of real-time 8K video workflows in mind, and offers a combination of artificial intelligence and machine learning with real time ray-traced graphics which next generation virtual reality workflows can take advantage of as well.

The result, is that video editors won’t have to wait for rendering to see how changes are effecting the 8K timeline, and CGI models will be able to interact in real time. Finally, editors have a GPU that can push the heavy computations and cut post production costs by shortening turn around times.

The NVIDIA TITAN RTX will be available later this month in the U.S. and Europe for $2,499. Half the cost of the Quatro RTX, putting it within reach of low budget, indepdent film companies in need of high performance graphics that won’t bust the post production budget.
