This evening at an artificial intelligence event at Stanford, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang revealed the next-gen Titan X, the company’s crazy-powerful, crazy-expensive high-end GPU.

Nvidia is bringing its Titan X card into the next generation with a new version of the GPU built upon the company’s latest ‘Pascal’ architecture. The Titan X tops the recently released flagship GTX 1080 with some whopping specs:

  • 11 TFLOPs FP32 (32-bit floating point)
  • 12GB of GDDR5X memory (480GB/s)
  • 3,584 CUDA cores at 1.53GHz (versus 3,072 CUDA cores at 1.08GHz in previous TITAN X)
  • 12-billion transistors
  • 250 Watts

With those whopping specs comes an equally whopping price: $1,200. If you’ve got the cash to drop, you’ll be able to buy the card starting on August 2nd from Nvidia and yet to be announced third-party GPU makers. The new Titan X will debut first in North America and Europe and later in Asia.

Nvidia says the card is up to 60% faster than the previous generation Titan X and, thanks to the new Pascal architecture, supports the same enhanced VR rendering capabilities (like simultaneous multi-projection) that debuted with the GTX 10-series cards.

The announcement of the new Titan X comes after the introduction and release of the GTX 1060, 1070, and 1080 GPUs over the last few months.

    Dang, that shroud looks slick.

    • Dredogg

      Yeah it looks cool except it’s probably just like prior model and gets hotter than the devils dick.

      • JustNiz

        Maybe you need to stop touching it with your dick while its running :-)

  • Raffi

    aww nigga, please

  • Pistol Pete

    Nvidia has been hitting that crack rock again.

  • Ian Shook

    500 more cuda cores? Meh.

    • Dynastius

      500 more cores with all cores running 50% faster. Seems like a good replacement for the last Titan X.

  • Jim Cherry

    My arms and legs are worth more than 600 usd a piece to me. That said i might be willing to sell a toe or two for one of these ;}

    • Archie1dash

      I would’nt even cut my toe for anything less than a million.
      It’s not worth it hiding your foot for the rest of your life. Lol

  • RavnosCC

    So we wait another month and get the 1080ti?

    • CMcD

      Haha I thought the same thing

  • Tim Suetens

    Good, good. War and competition are good for progress. Imagine the games devs could make with tech like this.

    • brandon9271

      IF they weren’t constrained by consoles.

    • Nigerian Wizard

      We already have
      the Titan Z that came out almost 2.5 years ago and we still have console graphics on the PC.

  • Aldrin

    I just want to know how much supersampling it can handle in Raw Data, Project Cars etc.
