Nvidia has announced its latest Titan graphics card at NIPS 2017. This time Nvidia has brought Nvidia Titan V, its very first graphics card based on Volta Architecture. Without any further delay, let us dive into the specifications and other details.
The Nvidia Titan V is based on Nvidia’s latest 12nm Volta GPU Architecture. Being called the fastest Graphics card ever built this Titan V also joins Nvidia’s Titan lineup and of course is packed with the latest and fastest technology.
The card is capable of delivering 110 Teraflops from its 21.1 billion transistors. The card has 12 GB of HBM2 memory loaded on board, 5120 CUDA cores and 640 tensor cores. These tensor cores offer 9 times more deep learning performance than the previous Titan cards. The core is clocked at 1200 MHz base and 1455 MHz boost. And this card requires 1x 8 Pin Connector and 1x 6 Pin Connector. And the card comes in this cool looking golden/black colour scheme.
The 12 GB of HBM2 memory comes with a data transfer rate of 1.7 Gbps along with a 3072-bit memory interface offering a high-speed bandwidth of 652.8 GB/s leaving its predecessor Titan Xp in the dust.
However, this one is not actually meant for gamers. Nvidia is targeting prosumers market with their new card and it is focused on AI simulations. That’s where the 640 Tensor cores will help, High-speed AI calculations and deep learning performance.
“Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI. We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links,” said Huang. “With TITAN V, we are putting Volta into the hands of researchers and scientists all over the world. I can’t wait to see their breakthrough discoveries.”
Nvidia Titan Series Comparison.
Here is a comparison table of Nvidia Titan V with different Titan series graphics card which is also the series that comprise of the most powerful graphics cards ever. The table credits goes to Wccftech.
