NVIDIA Announces the GeForce GTX TITAN X Pascal

In a show of shock and awe, NVIDIA today announced its flagship graphics card based on the "Pascal" architecture, the GeForce GTX TITAN X Pascal. Market availability of the card is scheduled for August 2, 2016, priced at US $1,199. Based on the 16 nm "GP102" silicon, this graphics card is endowed with 3,584 CUDA cores spread across 56 streaming multiprocessors, 224 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and a 384-bit GDDR5X memory interface, holding 12 GB of memory.

The core is clocked at 1417 MHz, with 1531 MHz GPU Boost, and 10 Gbps memory, churning out 480 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The card draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, the GPU's TDP is rated at 250W. NVIDIA claims that the GTX TITAN X Pascal is up to 60 percent faster than the GTX TITAN X (Maxwell), and up to 3 times faster than the original GeForce GTX TITAN.

Good naming scheme. nVidia is taking the Apple approach to nomenclatures. Let the confusion mount.

Also, was $1,000 for a single-GPU just not enough? $1,199 now?

1200$ and stil no HBM2. Interesting way to milk money by nVidia.

$200 Founders Edition premium.

nVidia is not known to allow anything but reference designs for the Titans. They've been more lenient recently but I would still be surprised if this were classified as a Founder's Edition card, that would suggest AIB Titans.

1080Ti will almost certainly follow at a lower price after they sell as many of these as they can. Might even drop the 1080 and 1070 prices slightly for it to fit in around ~700-900 USD at a wild guess.

Maybe they fear AMD's newest/soon arriving offerings and are getting this out asap to make some sales in lieu of waiting for HMB2.

So this will actually retail at $1,500 then...

Both GTX 780 Ti and GTX 980 Ti were launched as response to AMD products. GTX 780 Ti was launch as response to R9 290X, and GTX 980 Ti was launched to preempt R9 Fury X. So unless AMD has something that beats GTX 1080 and gets-close-to/outperforms GTX TITAN XPascal, NVIDIA won't launch GTX 1080 Ti. If AMD's response is slower than TITAN X Pascal, GTX 1080 Ti will have fewer CUDA cores. If it's faster then NVIDIA will max out 3,840 CUDA cores present on the GP102. If it's way faster, then NVIDIA will tap into GP100. So no, GTX 1080 Ti probably won't launch till Vega10 is close, and it's not.

At this rate GP100 won't make a market debut under GeForce brand this generation. It will be shelved for the GeForce 20 series.

Whatever the price is, anyone who have the money and passion for fastest graphics should buy this... buy it fast and stay on the top... until the next 1080Ti comes and then buy that to stay on top.

Or not, this is a rather surprising move.
Meanwhile for distribution, making a departure from previous generations, the card is only being sold directly by NVIDIA through their website. The company’s board partners will not be distributing it, though system builders will still be able to include it.

If this one doesn't have HBM2 no GeForce Pascal will this series.

1080 TI will likely stick to G5X

GTX 1080 is already 24% faster than Titan X at 4K

this is good news - not that nvidia can dare to ask 1200$ for a top end GPU (that is not something new) - but because nvidia could wait a few months before its owerpriced titan and before its reasonably priced 1080ti (reasonably - compared to titan)..... why nvidia would wait as long as it time would allow? because right now it can sell midrange cards like gtx1070 and gtx1080 for 500$ and 700$ and people buy empty stocks for those prices (???!!!) and amd has no answer.... this move (unexpected launch) migh indicate that nvida knows better what AMD has and it is last time for them to milk those who are ready to pay titan prices now, knowing that later a 1080TI will be launched at 700$ (for basically the same preformance of titan for 60% price - jsut like before) and if AMD has something it will very fast cost sub 600$ and 1080 will cost sub 500$.... it is just like with previous titan, 980ti, 980 where AMD could spoil the nvidias "700$ for midrange 980" party with rebranded, but cheap 390X (even thou this card was not a winner by any means - but its cheap prices pushed down the whole nvida linup - starting from 970 all the way till 980ti).

They could call it XP, but then people would buy it and not upgrade for 10 years or more, unless forced to. :p

Jaysus. 40% more CUDA cores, 40% more TMUs, 50% more ROPs, 50% more memory bandwidth, 50% more memory... this thing is gonna be a monster. And that means 1080 Ti will be even faster.

Seems NVIDIA is out to crush AMD absolutely this round. They could probably have got away with only releasing the GTX 1080 and 1070, but we also have the 1060 that rains on RX 480's parade, and now the TITAN X Pascal which is even faster than the 1080. If Vega is as much of a disappointment as Polaris was, AMD is in big trouble.

More hardware, less clocks. 15% slower in frequency?

Anyone remembers what happened to 3dfx when they wanted to do everything by themselves? They seem to be heading in that direction...

AMD just needs to release something. Its been an Nvidia show for the last 2 generation. Everything is so quiet when it comes to AMD.
