Nvidia announces $2999 Titan V, 'the most powerful PC GPU ever created'

Nvidia today introduced TITAN V, the world's most powerful GPU for the PC, driven by the world's most advanced GPU architecture, Nvidia Volta. In addition, this graphics card also features 5,120 CUDA Cores, 640 Tensor Cores, and a single-precision floating point compute performance of 15 TFLOPS.

While companies with large coffers and their own data centres can tap into the Volta architecture capabilities with Nvidia's enterprise-grade Tesla cards, these are more costly than the Titan V.

But at almost $3,000 it is really aimed at developers, researchers and companies that wish to create and power AI systems that tap into the parallel processing capabilities of GPU, helping them crunch through massive amounts of data more efficiently than central processing units would.

The Volta also features new Tensor Cores, which have been designed specifically for deep learning to deliver up to 9x higher peak teraflops. However, the TITAN is clearly a workstation card this time around, with the main focus being on pushing forward AI development and machine learning.

"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high-performance computing and AI". Meanwhile, clock speeds of the Nvidia Titan V is rated at 1200MHz (base) and 1455MHz (boost). The new Volta architecture doubles the energy efficiency when compared to last generation Pascal design.

In the previous news-item, we talked about the Titan Volta graphics card.

TITAN V's is intended for developers who want to use their PCs to work in AI, deep learning and high performance computing and they will be able to gain immediate access to the latest GPU-optimised AI, deep learning and HPC software by signing up with NVIDIA's GPU Cloud account which provides access to NVIDIA-optimised deep learning frameworks, third-party managed HPC applications, NVIDIA HPC visualisation tools and the TensorRT inferencing optimiser.

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. Instead, the TITAN V is priced at $2,999 and is available right now from the NVIDIA store.
