NVIDIA Announces Flagship GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB GPU At GDC 2015
NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang Reveals The GeForce GTX Titan X
NIVIDA has their own conference—GTC—happening in about a week’s time, which is where the company usually announces next-gen GPU technology, but Jen-Hsun went ahead and announced a new GPU right in the middle of EPIC’s talk. Out from within the jacket came a black box adorned with “Titan X”. Jen-Hsun opened the box to reveal a graphics card that looks much like the current generation GeForce GTX 980 (and 780, before it). The fan shroud and cooling hardware is reminiscent of previous-gen products, as you can see.
There weren’t many details given, but the GeForce GTX Titan X is obviously powered by a new, Maxwell-based GPU. Jen-Hsun also mentioned that the chip is comprised of roughly 8B transistors and that the card has a massive 12GB frame buffer.
