Nvidia announced its latest Titan V graphic card at the NIPS 2017 conference on Friday. In the words of the company, “Titan V is the most powerful PC GPU ever created,” and is based on the “world’s most advanced GPU architecture – Nvidia Volta.” Through Titan V, Nvidia wants to focus on Artificial Intelligence and deep learning.
Nvidia Titan V – is the price justified?
The Nvidia Titan V graphic card would come with a price tag of $2999. According to the company, it has up to 110 teraflops of performance from its 21.1 billion transistors with 12GB of HBM2 memory, 5120 CUDA cores, and 640 “tensor cores,” making it at least 9 times more efficient in deep learning than its predecessors. Tensor cores are highly specialized processing units that are best for math-suited AI and deep learning, making Nvidia Titan V a compute card first rather than gaming focused.
Announcing the new product, Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang said, “Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance
