NVIDIA Releases Their New Volta-based GPU the TITAN V

Written by

NVIDIA’s newest volta-based gpu are finally here and it’s the first consumer graphic card that is powered with Volta. Though, this new GPU is quite expensive priced at $3000 for the gold Titan V.

At NIPS (Neural Information Processing Systems) 2017, Nvidia announced their newest graphics card the volta-based TITAN V and the main focus of this graphics card is the AI and deep learning technology that requires massive amount of processing power – thanks to its built in 640 Tensor Core. And of course, this card is for gaming as well, but looking at the price of this graphics card its quite hard for average gamer’s to bought this graphics card that is equivalent on building your own complete CPU rig.

The price of $3,000 is more than twice the price of the current Titan XP of Nvidia, but why it is expensive and what are the difference of this card from its predecessor?

Let’s take a look of the chart below to give you overview.

Based on the specs, Titan V has a massive amount of Bus width and almost doubled its GFLOPS and CUDA cores that will give you more FPS in game and can also be used to render 3d graphics for developers. Plus the additional tensor cores which really gives this graphics card the ultimate consumer graphics card.

The Tensor Core technology is also an exciting feature of graphics card this may be use on the future games in PC and probably in enhancing game physics or game AI.

Do you have $3000 in your wallet right now? You can actually order this new graphics card at NVIDIA site.
