Nvidia's $2999 Titan V is a 110 teraflop GPU for AI processing

Volta Arrives: nVidia Announces Titan V Graphics Card

NVIDIA Announces Monstrous TITAN V With Volta V100 GPU, 12GB HBM2, 110 TFLOPs Of Compute

At the annual NIPS conference today, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announced TITAN V, the world's most powerful GPU for the PC.

Unveiled by Nvidia chief executive Jensen Huang late on Thursday, the Titan V isn't a gaming card, despite not living in the company's Tesla accelerator or Quadro workstation families: As demonstrated by the choice of launch venue, the Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems, it's created to bring top performance to those using graphics processors for compute-heavy work in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

It's a chip that's meant for machine learning researchers, developers, and data scientists who want to be able to build and test machine learning systems on desktop computers.

This graphics processor card, is based on Nvidia's Volta architecture and features 21.1 billion transistors that claim to deliver 110 teraflops of raw horsepower. Speaking of insanity, Nvidia has mentioned that the Titan V will come at a ludicrous price of US$2,999 (about RM12,222).

At one point in the past year, the shares traded as low as $3.14 but has recovered 33.12% since then. (NASDAQ: GILD ). The average 12-month price target among brokerages that have issued a report on the stock in the past year is $84.40.

The Titan V is fabricated on a TSMC 12nm FinFet NVIDIA manufacturing process and guarantees 1.2 times delivered memory bandwidth. Power efficiency has reportedly been drastically improved with Volta as well; NVIDIA is claiming big performance gains, within the same power envelope as Pascal. Both the Titan V and V100 cards seem to have quite a bit in common, including the V100 GPU at their core, though the Titan V features both less memory and a reduced memory bus width.

In total, the card has six graphics processing clusters, 80 streaming multiprocessors, 5,120 CUDA cores (compared to 3,840 in the mighty Titan Xp) and 320 texture units, with a base clock of 1200MHz and boost clock of 1455MHz.

He further added, "What NVIDIA is all about is building tools that advance computing, so we can do things that would otherwise be impossible".

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). With one HDMI, one DVI and three DisplayPort connectors the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti reference board measures 10.5-inch.
