NVIDIA Announces the TITAN Xp - Faster Than GTX 1080 Ti

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cannibalized the TITAN X Pascal, and the company needed something faster to sell at USD $1,200. Without making much noise about it, the company launched the new TITAN Xp, and with it, discontinued the TITAN X Pascal. The new TITAN Xp features all 3,840 CUDA cores physically present on the "GP102" silicon, all 240 TMUs, all 96 ROPs, and 12 GB of faster 11.4 Gbps GDDR5X memory over the chip's full 384-bit wide memory interface.

Compare these to the 3,584 CUDA cores, 224 TMUs, 96 ROPs, and 10 Gbps GDDR5X memory of the TITAN X Pascal, and 3,584 CUDA cores, 224 TMUs, 88 ROPs, and 11 GB of 11 Gbps GDDR5X memory across a 352-bit memory bus, of the GTX 1080 Ti. The GPU Boost frequency is 1582 MHz. Here's the catch - the new TITAN Xp will be sold exclusively through GeForce.com, which means it will be available in very select markets where NVIDIA's online store has a presence.

Somehow I get the feeling that @W1zzard sold his Titan X Pascal because he knew this one is coming.

How is this a finger up the ass? It's literally double the price of a 1080 Ti. For another ~8-10% performance? Lol no thanks.

Yeah this was inevitable. Titan X was eolled at the time gtx1080ti were out(or at least it should have been eolled). And I presume Nvidia has bunch of working full gp102 to ditch somewhere and p6000/teslas won't sell them all.

For performance it will be the fastest pascal graphics card for gamers ever to come(Faster than same core config and lower memory configured quadro p6000, which bests titan X by good margin). Next is Volta, pascal is finished(well maybe lower segment will see gp108/gp107 cards but that's all)... Unless we see some sort of titan Zp with two gp100 and nvlink experiment, which i highly doubt.

You mean original titan x owners. It's in very different price segment. And I don't think people who is ready to buy titan cares a price at all.

They know they do, and if they are still surprised about this after 2013, well... they have some issues.

Titan's never been a good buy.

A finger? Try something longer and a lot thicker.

Finally! The perfect video card for my Windows XP build.

(Can they not pick a different letter, I mean Titan X, Titan X (P), Titan Xp)
Z was used but that was for dual-gpu.

So the GPU isn't cut down in any way? Finally. While I wouldn't buy such a ridiculously expensive card available only as an FE version, at least it's finally possible to buy the uncrippled GPU.

A new Titan X to rip off big-wallet half-mind customers. If someone is willing to spend that much money on a graphics card, why not buying two 1080Tis for 200$ more that performance-wise can destroy a single titan xp .

Original two were, if you needed fp64.

Can't be bothered quoting those saying "object up orifice" for 1080ti buyers. But I'll say this, i didn't buy a Titan X Pascal due to the price. I waited and bought a 1080ti. I wouldn't but this new card so there's no orifice invasion on my part.
You people need to get over this odd idea a company isn't allowed to re-establish it's ultra high end, ultra high cost premium product.
I'm ultra happy with my card. Best gfx card I have bought at this end £500+ ever. It doesn't even have coil whine on the Unigine Valley quit screen. It's tremendous. But i wouldn't pay over £1100 for it.

Exactly. People buying these cards:

  1. Don't care about the price, they'll pay anything to get the best available.
  2. Know that something better, or the same for cheaper, will be along very shortly.
  3. Have cash to burn.
This is true not just of nVidia Titan's, but AMD's cards in this price point too.

This is true, but nVidia realized it was cutting into their workstation market. Because they were essentially very cheap workstation graphics cards.

Yeah, people think that somehow their 1080Ti got slower suddenly or something. Shit happens all the time. Faster stuff comes out, deal with it.

Some people just want the best it is out there and don't give a damn about the money, so those are the people who will buy this, apparently there are a lot of people like that if Nvidia is pulling this trick

I don't think there is a lot of them, the Titan market is a niche one. That is why it is priced so high.

Think of it like this, nVidia is maybe making $900 per card on these. And since they are selling them directly, they are making all that profit, no middle men here. If they sell 1,000 cards, thats $900,000 profit to them.

On the other hand, something like a GTX1060 they probably make $40 per card. But they might sell say 25,000 of those because they are way way more popular. They'd be making $1,000,000 profit.

Economically, they are making roughly the same off both models. They just have to sell a crapton more of the GTX1060 to make the same amount of money.

You mean server. Tesla were all about computing, workstation Quadro's has always been more for advantaged rendering/modelling. And you could not use quadro drivers on titans(well you could mod them but it did not behave like it should. You could mod your hw with soldering couple of smd resistors and use quadro firmware's).
