NVIDIA surprises with the announcement of the new TITAN V graphics card, which implements the Volta GV100 GPU, used by the Tesla V100 accelerator of the green company, which now leaps the mass consumer. The big giant NVIDIA launches the TITAN V card with the Volta GV100 module.
NVIDIA announces the new Titan V, a graphics card based on Volta with 12GB HBM2 and 5120 CUDA cores
The GV100 is a multichip module, with the Volta GPU and three HBM2 memory batteries, all in one package. In this graphics card, we have a total 12 GB of HBM2 memory. That combines through a memory interface of 3072 bits of bandwidth.
The function of GV100 Chip?
The GV100 module comes with a 12 nm FinFET + manufacturing process by TSMC. With more than 21 million transistors, this card can have a performance of 110 TeraFLOPS for Deep Learning and has about 5120 CUDA cores and 640 Tensor cores. Recall that the GTX 1080 Ti has 3584 CUDA cores.
The base frequency of the GPU is running at 1200 MHz and can reach 1455 MHz in load. The HBM2 memory operates at a speed of 850 MHz, which translates into a memory bandwidth of 652.8 GB/s. With a double-slot format, the card comes with a 6-pin connector and an 8-pin connector. Regarding connectivity, it comes with three DisplayPort ports and an HDMI connector.
However, until now we do not know how this graphics card will work in video games. But we already know that its price is excessively high. TITAN V is now available from the NVIDIA official store for about 3100 euros, with a delivery date of December 30, just before the end of the year.
This movement is curious because NVIDIA had declared that they did not plan to launch a Volta card for ‘Gaming’ this year, but I think they have changed their mind.
