Nvidia Reveals $1,200 Titan X Graphics Card
Nvidia officially revealed its most powerful and expensive graphics card so far, just a couple of months after the release of the also impressive GTX 1080 and GTX 1070.
Gamers who were eagerly waiting for the next generation of Nvidia graphics cards were thrilled some months ago when the company announced the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. The two new Pascal generation cards had some impressive specifications, with the GTX 1080 providing faster performance than the last generation's Titan X.
Nvidia's Titan X has been considered as top of the line card for a long time, so maybe it's not surprising to hear that it wouldn't stay outclassed by the GTX 1080 for long. Last week, Nvidia has continued its rapid GPU release schedule with the announcement of a new Titan X that's going to cost $1200.
The revitalized Titan X is being billed as the company's most powerful graphics card yet and is the largest GPU ever created with a total of 12 billion transistors. The other part of the architecture is equally impressive, featuring 12 GB of GDDR5X memory and 3,584 cores working at 1.53 GHz for a quoted 11 teraflops of performance. The card is launching on August 2 in the U.S. with an Asia release following. At $1200, gamers will be paying $100 for every billionth transistor.
Clearly Titan X will be a fantastic card for virtual reality gaming machines but will do little to eliminate the idea among some consumers that quality VR is too expensive. The card will also be a godsend for those that want to do high-end gaming with a 4K display, but for the average gamer, this extra horsepower won't be necessary. After the reveal of the GTX 1080, someone managed to get the latest DOOM game running at 200 FPS at 1080p on that card.
Anyway, for those gamers looking to have the very latest technology, the refreshed Titan X gives another item to add to the wishlist. Let us hope Nvidia can keep the drivers working properly for all these new cards as new AAA games launch soon.
