Nvidia reveals Titan V, its AI-focused graphics card

Nvidia says the Titan V has nine times the power of its predecessor the $1,200 Titan Xp.                Nvidia

Inside, the new TITAN V features 640 Tensor Cores that are turned for deep learning performance. Single-Precision performance will likely come in at a much more tame 14 TFLOPs, give or take depending on the GPU frequency.

The Titan V is priced at $2,999 and is aimed towards AI and scientific simulation processing. The GPU ticks at a base clock of 1.2GHz with 1.455GHz Boost clock. The GV100 has 21.1 billion transistors and can achieve throughput of 110 teraflops in optimised workloads, which Nvidia says is a massive 9X leap over its previous architecture.

All of the specifications stated above are, of course, higher compared to the older Pascal-based Titan Xp graphics card; the only exception being slower clock speeds on the new Titan V. Due to the use of HBM2, the Nvidia's newest graphics card now boasts a memory bandwidth speed of 653GBps - 106GBps higher than the Titan Xp. Nvidia's current Pascal architecture was introduced over a year and a half ago with the GTX 1080, which still remains one of the best gaming GPUs available - only really topped in performance by its turbocharged successor, the GTX 1080 Ti.

(COST) Earns Outperform Rating from Cowen and Company
Welch And Forbes Limited Liability Com owns 0.53% invested in Costco Wholesale Corporation (NASDAQ:COST) for 119,147 shares. The retailer reported $2.08 earnings per share for the quarter, topping analysts' consensus estimates of $2.02 by $0.06.

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.

Also, the Titan V comes in a black and gold colour scheme, which makes it look like an otherworldly gadget straight out of a super-hero movie (read THOR-Ragnarok). Given the drastic rise in processing power, it's clear that Nvidia has also managed to improve power efficiency thanks to the new manufacturing process as well as its architecture. Ever since the American semiconductor maker has been making some of the fastest GPUs, and now it seems like it has outdone itself once again by announcing the - Titan V - which in Nvidia's own words is "the most powerful GPU ever created". Pricing and availability in India are not yet known.
