NVIDIA TITAN X Pascal Unleashed – Currently The Fastest Single Card on the Planet

Well that was surprisingly pretty fast. NVIDIA recently announced the new NVIDIA TITAN X graphics card based on the new Pascal architecture. The new TITAN X is not to be confused with the previous TITAN X released last year since its predecessor was based on the previous Maxwell architecture. The new TITAN X boasts 3584 CUDA Cores, 11 TFLOPS of compute performance, 12GB GDDR5X and a whopping $1200 price tag. The said card will become available on August 2. For those who have bought the GTX 1080, well it’s no longer the fastest graphics card and it was quickly dethroned in a matter of 2 months. We knew something faster is coming and we knew that there will be a 1080Ti or TITAN Pascal soon; but definitely not this soon. More details about the TITAN X Pascal below.

NVIDIA TITAN X (Pascal) – The Ultimate Graphics Card

Okay, NVIDIA decided to call their latest TITAN, TITAN X, the same name given to their Maxwell-based flagship graphics card last year. Why not TITAN P instead for Pascal? I don’t know, better ask Jen-Hsun about that. Besides, TITAN P doesn’t sound like “The Ultimate” graphics card.

The NVIDIA TITAN X is powered by a 16nm FinFET GP102 GPU based on Pascal architecture. It features 3584 CUDA cores, 12 billion transistors and 11 TFLOPS of 32-bit floating point compute performance. Its core has a base clock speed of 1417MHz and a boost clock of 1531MHz. The TITAN X Pascal is said to be 60% faster than the TITAN X Maxwell.

In terms of graphics memory, it doesn’t feature the latest HBM2, instead it features 12GB of GDDR5X same type of memory used in the GTX 1080. The memory is clocked at 1250 MHz, with 10GHz effective clock speed, 480GB/s bandwidth and runs on a 384-bit memory interface.

If NVIDIA released the new TITAN X this soon, I wouldn’t be surprised why they didn’t used HBM2 since the new memory isn’t readily available at this point in time. This could also mean that the GTX 1080 Ti won’t be featuring HBM2 as well.

The TITAN X features a Thermal Design Power or TDP of 250W and draws its power from a 6-pin + 8-pin configuration. Like the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, it also supports SLI and the new High Bandwidth (HB) SLI bridges. It’s also noticeable that the TITAN X Pascal is using the Founders Edition cooler shroud design with an all-black finish.

The TITAN graphics cards aren’t generally targeted towards PC gamers. Instead these cards are usually marketed for developers. So expect there will be something new for us PC gamers, and that could be the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
