NVIDIA Titan RTX costs $2,500 for the most demanding players

According to foreign media reports, the graphics chip manufacturer Nvidia has officially introduced its high-end graphics processor: Titan RTX.

NVIDIA Titan RTX costs $2,500 for the most demanding players

It is assumed that this product contains 72 pieces of Turing RT core and 4608 Stars CUDA cores compared to the RTX 2080 Ti, that have 68 Turing RT cores and 4352 CUDA cores. As part of the Titan V family of computer GPUs, the Titan RTX is also available with up to 24GB of GDDR6 VRAM for $2,500, more than twice as much as the RTX 2080 Ti.

Titan RTX is targeted at artificial intelligence researchers, workplace users, and financial service providers. It is very similar to the RTX 2080 Ti, except that the memory is much larger. This includes the TU102 graphics processor, very similar to the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 6000, designed for workstations sold for up to $6,300. The CUDA number, tensor number and RT core of the two products are identical, and the GDDR6 VRAM is also 24GB in size.

If Titan RTX cannot meet users’ needs, NVIDIA has also released a price of $80 on the Titan RTX NVLink Bridge (“below”), so users can connect two Titan RTX to get VRAMs twice, with a total bandwidth of 100 GB/s.

Like the latest generation of the GTX series, the NVIDIA Titan XP consumer graphics card has already sold for $1,200. But since the introduction of Titan V, the company has begun to gradually change its strategy, so that Titan RTX is more suitable for AI researchers and others may want to exploit the needs of users of the tensor core, offering raytracing graphics in real time. A big memory will also allow scientists to perform larger simulations than the 11 GB of the RTX 2080 Ti.

Since the Titan RTX is similar to the Quadro RTX 6000, it can also be a suitable application for 3D animation, graphics animation, and video editing. The Titan RTX is less than half the price of the Quadro RTX 6000 and offers similar performance to the Quadro RTX 6000, with the exception of graphics and OpenGL drivers, which are rarely used by applications.

However, the Titan RTX Speed Racing Game should be better than the RTX 2080 Ti up to 10% to 20%. Unlike the Titan V, which costs $3,000 and uses expensive HBM2 memory, the Titan RTX is very similar to other game-oriented RTX cards. Therefore, this Titan RTX can be purchased by some high-end players, as the $1,200 RTX 2080 Ti simply cannot meet the needs of these players.
