Nvidia Unveils $4000 Titan RTX GPU


NVIDIA has officially unveiled the TITAN RTX, which is something we probably all assumed was on the way.

NVIDIA is also touting 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray tracing performance from the card, and it's no wonder that the vendor is calling the Titan RTX the most powerful desktop GPU in the market today. The fully-armed TU102 GPU and high core clock make the Titan RTX the fastest single gaming card around for those who can stomach its price, but gamers aren't really this card's raison d'être.

"The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users - developers, scientists and content creators". Having announced the new GeForce RTX 20 Series during Gamescom this summer, the company has gradually rolled out the various iterations, the 2070, 2080 and the 2080 Ti.

576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, providing up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance. That "Real Time" Star Wars demo was a DGX Station and Nvidia's professional GPU SKUs that cost way more than even this Titan RTX. Data scientists will look forward to the accelerates data analytics with RAPIDS, one of the most popular data science workflows.

But here's the kicker, the new Titan is paired with 24GB GDDR6 memory at 672GB/s of bandwidth, significantly faster than the previous Titans. The Titan RTX supports NVLink as well, allowing people to scale up to two RTX Titan cards if they want to avoid shelling out for the expense of a Quadro 6000.

Incredible performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing.

Following a number of teases on social media that suggested the launch would be soon, Nvidia has disclosed that the Titan RTX will go on sale later in December at a breathtaking price of $2,499 (around £2,000, AU$3,400).
