Nvidia reveals Titan V, its AI-focused graphics card

However, for technology enthusiasts and those who wouldn't settle for less, the Titan V is world's most powerful card right now as it is future ready and can run all AAA titles at 4K resolution with minimum 60 fps while it can go all the way up to 120fps or more based on your setup. Nvidia has pointed towards a redesign of the streaming multiprocessor that is at the centre of the GPU, which it claims doubles energy efficiency compared to the previous generation, which results in the boost in performance in the same power envelope.

So where does the extra power come from? The card, which features 12GB of HBM2 memory, will retail for $2,999.

It's worth noting that this isn't really Nvidia's most powerful card yet - that honor still belongs to the 112 teraflop Tesla V100, which tends to retail for around $10,000. In April of this year, NVIDIA ratcheted up the performance a tad with a fully unlocked Pascal GP102 core in the form of TITAN Xp, boasting a full 12 TFLOPs of compute power.


Nvidia calls its new compute units Tensor Cores, and they are designed specifically for deep learning, with independent integer and floating-point data paths that can operate in parallel.

The launch of the Titan V came as a bit of a surprise. The new TITAN V is based on the NVIDIA Volta architecture, and with that shift comes a very big leap in compute performance with certain workloads.

Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang said in a statement -"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI". The latest release from this lineup is Titan V GPU, which is created to bring tons of power to the people who are interested in dealing with machine learning applications. "We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links", Huang said at the conference. Its 21.1 billion transistors are able to deliver 110 teraflops of performance, which is 9 times more than its predecessor.
