After a lot of teases from various social media personalities, Nvidia has finally officially unveiled it’s new Titan RTX GPU.
The Titan RTX is a top-end consumer GPU beast which features 72 Turing RT and 4,608 Cuda Cores whereas Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Ti has 68 Turing RT and 4,352 Cuda Cores which means that we are seeing an uplift in raw specs which was expected. Unlike most Titan cards before it which were aimed at gamers and consumers, this one is more like the Titan V compute GPU. It is aimed at AI researchers, workstation users and for those who might use the Tensor cores for real-time Raytracing.
It matches the specs of the Quadro RTX 6000 with 24GB of GDDR6 VRAM, a TU102 GPU and has the same number of CUDA cores, Tensor and RT cores as it. This GPU could very well be used for 3D animation and in render farms since it is half the price of the Quadro RTX 6000 and is different in terms of graphics drivers and OpenGL support so it should perform somewhat similarly in the aforementioned areas.
In terms of gaming, the Titan RTX should be better by 15-20% in terms of raw performance when compared to the RTX 2080 Ti so if the card isn’t doing it for you, you could pay double it’s price and get the Titan which costs $2,500. It’s not the most logical choice for a gaming set up but, if you have the money and want the best product on the market, this is for you. The full spec sheet can be seen here at Nvidia’s site.
