Nvidia, one of the best graphics card companies in the world, has just announced their new graphics card Behemoth, the Nvidia GTX Titan X.
Although the company has released a graphics card that has a similar name, the 2016 GTX Titan X will be their “best one yet”.
After the success of its two major graphics cards, the 1080 and the 1070, the graphics card company is not finished yet.
Their new GTX Titan X is probably the best graphics card in the world. That is because this graphics card has everything and it does so by really amping it up.
So, what can you expect with the Titan X 2016? Well, it’s got 11 Teraflops of computing power. For those of you who do not know, the more Teraflops a graphics card has, the better it is in handling floating point operations.
This could mean that it can render graphics at a much higher rate compared to graphics cards that have a lower teraflop count.
The next thing you can expect is that the Titan X might be the first card that can give us 60 frames per second in 4K resolution gaming with all of the graphics settings cranked up to its maximum.
Now, I am not saying that it is 100% but what I am saying is that the Titan X can. We will have to wait and see until the card releases.
The Titan X also has a new chip in the form of the GP102. This is a new chip that has the Pascal architecture, which by now, is one of the most power-efficient chips in the world.
Not only do you get a lot of performance but you are also assured that the graphics card has only minimal power draw.
It also has a whopping 3584 CUDA cores. This number of CUDA cores is already present in their P100 lineup but that is already a complete machine: the Titan X is just a graphics card that would complement your gaming rig.
The Titan X has sheer power on its hands and I am already looking at a graphics card that can demolish every game when it comes to its graphical prowess.
In terms of Memory bandwidth, the Titan X comes with 12 GB of GDDR5X with a memory interface of 384-bits and a maximum sustained throughput of 480GB/second.
Although it doesn’t use the new HBM memory, the GDDR5X is still quite a speedy graphics memory module (as evidenced by the GTX 1080).
Furthermore, a lot of people think that 12GB of VRAM is quite overkill, at least in today’s applications. But, the Titan X looks into the future of gaming and with the emergence of Virtual Reality games, 12GB of VRAM will give you more than enough headroom to enjoy those games.
All in all, the Titan X is a serious graphics card with a lot of power. But, with this much power, comes a pretty heavy price tag. I am not talking about an $800 graphics card, no, I am talking about a $1200 graphics card.
That’s right, the price of the Titan X costs more than a standard gaming rig of today. This means that the Titan X is only for those enthusiasts who wants to brag about how their system can perform at top notch levels.
Still, the Titan X is a really interesting prospect and if you can buy one of these, this graphics card can be used for more than 3 years.
