The flagship GPU takes aim at AI researchers and data scientists, rather than gamers; Nvidia claims the card "transforms the PC into a supercomputer" allowing faster training and inference of neural networks and enables researchers to experiment with larger neural networks and data sets.
Over the weekend Nvidia has been indulging in a social media marketing campaign to get tongues a wagging about an upcoming RTX Titan graphics card. The Titan RTX packs 72 Turing RT Cores, delivering up to 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray-tracing performance, just a notch above the 2080 Ti. Nvidia this morning confirmed that the Titan RTX would be part of its ray tracing accelerated GPU lineup, and it comes at quite the price: $4000.
Finally, content creators will be glad to know that the Titan RTX will facilitate real-time 8K video recording.
576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, offering up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance.
The card also includes 24GB of GDDR6 memory - non-ECC, naturally - running at an effective 7,000MHz on a 384-bit bus for 672GB/s of bandwidth. Of particular interest for data scientists will be the fact that the Titan RTX supports RAPIDS, the open-source libraries that integrate with popular data science workflows to boost machine learning use cases.
On paper, then, it looks like the Titan RTX will be a very solid performer, but we'll have to wait until we get our hands on one to see if it justifies that incredibly high price tag.
