NVIDIA Drops Pascal Bomb With GP102-Based TITAN X, 60 Percent Faster Than Its Predecessor
Tonight’s announcement, however, takes the cake. We just received details from NVIDIA regarding an upcoming ultra-powerful, Pascal-based Titan X, featuring a 12 billion transistor GPU, codenamed GP102. The email’s subject began with “SURPRISE” and the body started with, “It began with a bet”.
NVIDIA is obviously having a little fun with this one.
The specifications NVIDIA has released thus far include:
- 12-billion transistors
- 11 TFLOPs FP32 (32-bit floating point)
- 44 TOPS INT8 (new deep learning inferencing instruction)
- 3,584 CUDA cores at 1.53GHz
- High performance engineering for maximum overclocking
- 12GB of GDDR5X memory (480GB/s)
And here's how the specs of the new beast map out versus previous and current generation NVIDIA high-end GPUs:
|TITAN X (New)||GTX 1080||GTX 980 Ti||TITAN X (Old)
|Number of Cores||3584||2560||2816||3072||2048|

|Memory Clock||10000 MHz||10000 MHz||7000 MHz||7000 MHz||7000 MHz|
|Memory Interface||384-bit G5X||256-bit G5X||384-bit||384-bit||256-bit|
|Memory Bandwidth||480 GB/s||320 GB/s||336 GB/s||336 GB/s||224 GB/s|
|TDP||250 watts||180 watts||250 watts||250 watts||165 watts|
|Peak Compute||11.0 TFLOPS||8.2 TFLOPS||5.63 TFLOPS||6.14 TFLOPS||4.61 TFLOPS|
|Process Tech||16nm FinFET||16nm FinFET||28nm||28nm||28nm|
NVIDIA also just posted a teaser video to its YouTube channel. There aren’t any more details revealed in the video, but the visuals are interesting nonetheless.
We’re told the new Titan X will be available Aug. 2 for $1,200 direct from NVIDIA.com in North America and Europe, and from select system builders. Availability in Asia will come at a later date.
