Nvidia Announces Titan V

Accepted submission by takyon at 2017-12-08 17:11:40

Nvidia has announced the Titan V, a $3,000 Volta-based flagship GPU [] capable of around 15 teraflops single-precision and 110 teraflops of "tensor performance (deep learning)". It has slightly greater performance but less VRAM than the Tesla V100, a $10,000 GPU aimed at professional users.

Would you consider it a card for "consumers" []?

It seems like Nvidia announces the fastest GPU in history multiple times a year, and that's exactly what's happened again today; the Titan V is "the most powerful PC GPU ever created," in Nvidia's words. It represents a more significant leap than most products that have made that claim, however, as it's the first consumer-grade GPU based around Nvidia's new Volta architecture.

That said, a liberal definition of the word "consumer" is in order here — the Titan V sells for $2,999 and is focused around AI and scientific simulation processing. Nvidia claims 110 teraflops of performance from its 21.1 billion transistors, with 12GB of HBM2 memory, 5120 CUDA cores, and 640 "tensor cores" that are said to offer up to 9x the deep-learning performance of its predecessor.
