Nvidia Unleashes The Titan V; Its Most Powerful Titan Graphics Card

U.S. technology firm Nvidia has unveiled its latest processor, the Titan V, that has been named the world's most powerful processor for the PC, using its Nvidia Volta GPU architecture. The latest release from this lineup is Titan V GPU, which is created to bring tons of power to the people who are interested in dealing with machine learning applications.

According to a press release, the Titan V promises increased performance over its predecessor, the Pascal-based Titan X, while maintaining the same power requirements.

"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI". NVIDIA TITAN V maxes out the GV100 silicon, if not its memory interface, featuring a whopping 5,120 CUDA cores, 640 Tensor cores (specialized units that accelerate neural-net building/training). This card, which is based on Nvidia's Volta architecture, features 21.1 billion transistors on a 815 mm chip that can produce a full 110 teraflops of compute power. "We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links", Huang said at the conference.

That aside, when it comes to specifications, the Nvidia Titan V is equipped with the Volta-based GV100 GPU (12nm), which is even further enhanced with 12GB of HBM2 memory (first ever Titan graphics card to have this memory controller).

Well, it's possible. I already mentioned that I did not see an SLI connectors on the card, and made a comment about NVLINK, indeed the card has NVLINK Bridge connectors, which is a fundamental change, but also price. The HBM2 memory module has a clock speed of 1.7Gbps and 3072-bit memory which performs at 653GB/s of bandwidth.

That said, the Titan V is an insanely expensive GPU to be called a consumer-grade product, also there is no word on when Volta architecture might come to more affordable gaming GPUs.

Nvidia has given the Titan V a distinct black and gold paint job, but it's still a dual-slot PCIe card with the company's now-familiar angular stock cooler.
