Nvidia Launches The Titan RTX - A 24 GDDR6 Monster

Nvidia just launched the new Titan RTX Turing card, a new graphics card that completes this year's RTX series. 

The Titan RTX is not quite a flagship card, and just as the other Titan series it holds a very interesting spot in Nvidia's GPU lineup as a prime workstation compute card.

The new chip is a bigger version of the RTX 2080Ti let's say, being a full unlocked TU102 GPU with over 250 more CUDA cores than the RTX 2080TI reaching a total of 4608 CUDA cores, although it is a little bit less than last year's TITAN V which features 5120 cores. 

The Titan RTX comes with 576 Tensore core for AI and DLSS computing, and its clock speeds is 1350MHx base with 1770MHz boost. In terms of memory bandwidth the card comes with the same 14Gbps GDDR6 as in the case of the 2080 TI, but it comes with a massive 24GB Video memory buffer (see the full specs below).

Graphics Processing Clusters: 6

L2 Cache Size: 6144 K
Total Video Memory: 24 GDDR6
Memory Interface: 384-bit 
Total Memory Bandwidth: 672 GB/s 
Texture Rate (Bilinear): 510 GigaTexels/sec

Transistor Count: 18.6 Billion
Connectors: 3 x DisplayPort , 1 x HDMI, 1 x USB Type-C
OS Certification: Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 10 64-bit (April 2018 Update or later),Linux 64-bit 
Form Factor: Dual Slot
Power Connectors: Two 8-pin
Recommended Power Supply: 650 Watts
Thermal Design Power (TDP): 280 Watts
Thermal Threshold: 89° C
Looking at these numbers the Titan RTX looks to be the top dog of the RTX lineup, but it comes at a huge premium. Nvidia shifted away from the idea of a semi-consumer Titan with the launch of the Titan V and goes towards the idea of a straight-up professional grade workstation card used not only for just graphic tasks, and thanks to the Turing architecture's ray-tracing capability the new Titan is being pitched as a ray-tracing video-card for content-creators.

While Nvidia is the first to note that the card is not really for gaming, even the Titan V sold to some gamers out there since Titans use the GeForce driver stack, and we expect much the same trend here. While the potential 15% performance improvement by no means justifies the greater-than 2x jump in cost, for the crazy rich out there, we expect the Titan RTX to be a little better suited to gaming than the Titan V was. 

Design wise, like the rest of the RTX series, the Titan RTX also follows very closely. What is notable is that Nvidia is using an open-air double-fan cooler here, which Nvidia switched to on this generation, and not a traditional blower like the Titan V or the current Quadro cards. 

Until now everything looks good for the Titan RTX, besides the cost, and we should soon see it in action as well. Meanwhile Nvidia tells us that the card will be available for purchase on their website first later this month.
