Nvidia launches Titan Xp…probably too soon for GTX 1080 Ti users

NVIDIA reveals Titan Xp, billed as 'world's most powerful graphics card'

NVIDIA reveals Titan Xp, billed as 'world's most powerful graphics card'

We knew it was coming, just like last year's Titan X eclipsed the GTX 980 Ti, but whether or not you consider it a "consumer" graphics card is another matter. The 3,840 CUDA cores play an instrumental role in such potential of the Titan Xp.

The XP is available right now from Nvidia.com, and will set you back a wallet-busting $1,200. There's no doubt that at least a few Titan XM or Titan XP cards will be bought under the pretense of a later release. Here are the details, specs, and reason why NVIDIA GeForce TITAN XP beats Xbox Scorpio. And that's about it, the new TITAN Xp is the fastest GPU on the planet. The card is available for sale now directly from Nvidia, and the company plans to release Mac-compatible drivers later this month.

Nvidia has quietly replaced its top-of-the-range PC graphics card, the 2016 Titan X, which hasn't even been out for a year, with an even more powerful flagship, the Titan Xp. At teraflops level, the graphics card comfortably outperforms the 12 teraflops, compared to just over 11 and nearly 11 of the previous models. The Xp model's cores are also faster with a boost clock of 1,582MHz besting the Titan X's 1,531MHz clock speed.

Stolen truck kills 4 in Stockholm; Sweden calls it terror
Intensive intelligence work was underway in order to identify the person or persons behind the attack, the spokesman said. The vehicle bomb never went off, and Abdulwahab died when one of his devices exploded among panicked Christmas shoppers.

The big hardware news this week was the surprise release of Nvidia's newest new top-of-the-line desktop graphics card, the 2017 Titan Xp.

Whenever Nvidia's name comes in the vicinity of phrase "world's most powerful graphics card", nobody's surprised. Its 12GB of GDDR5X memory runs at 11.4Gbps and the memory bandwidth is given as 547.7GB/s. The fact that the new Titan is here so soon, though, is a pleasant surprise and reflects positively on NVIDIA's ability to understand and serve its highest-paying customers. The last Apple desktops with user-accessible PCIe slots were the 2010 Mac Pros with Intel Westmere Xeons.
