Nvidia pulls Titan V out of its hat

Nvidia launches Titan V desktop GPU to accelerate AI computation

Nvidia launched a new desktop GPU today that's created to bring massive amounts of power to people who are working on machine learning applications.

Now, NVIDIA is ready to unleash a completely new GPU aimed at researchers and scientists, the TITAN V. The card was fittingly announced at the Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) in Long Beach, California.

According to the specifications available on Nvidia's product page, the GV100 GPU behind the Titan V has all 6 Graphics Processing Clusters (GPCs) or 80 Streaming Multiprocessors (SMs), for a total of 5120 CUDA cores and 320 TMUs.

Nvidia's Titan V is the first "consumer-grade" card (i.e. the Titan brand, as opposed to Tesla) to use the company's new Volta technology (the next step on from Pascal, which powers the current GeForce 10-series cards), and it boasts no less than 21.1 billion transistors, delivering a jaw-dropping 110 teraflops of computing power.

Microsoft recently launched the Xbox One X console for $500 that is the most powerful console in the world right now in terms of specs but Nvidia wouldn't allow the PC Master Race to sulk as the company has revealed a massive graphics card, the Titan V priced at $3000. Power efficiency has reportedly been drastically improved with Volta as well; NVIDIA is claiming big performance gains, within the same power envelope as Pascal.

Nvidia calls its new compute units Tensor Cores, and they are designed specifically for deep learning, with independent integer and floating-point data paths that can operate in parallel.

"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI". Never the less, the time will come where games will be able to use AI to process out game environments and that's where the Titan V will shine. "We broke new ground with its new processor architecture, instructions, numerical formats, memory architecture and processor links", said Huang. Meanwhile, clock speeds of the Nvidia Titan V is rated at 1200MHz (base) and 1455MHz (boost).
