Card Specifications

 

Before we blow you away with how powerful the GM200-based GeForce GTX Titan X is, we'll give you a rundown of the specifications of the card. We have 96 ROPs, 256 TMUs and 3072 shaders. This is compared to the 64 ROPs, 128 TMUs and 2048 shader cores found in the GM204-based GeForce GTX 980. So we can see that the Titan X is incredibly powerful on paper, even against the already powerful GTX 980.

 

We also have a 384-but memory bus on the Titan X, compared to the 256-bit memory bus found on the GTX 980. This gives us 336.6GB/sec of memory bandwidth, up from the 224GB/sec that the GTX 980 is capable of.

 

One of the big points of the Titan X is the 12GB of RAM, which is clocked at 7GHz. As for the Core and Boost clocks, we have 1002MHz on the GPU and 1072MHz Boost.

 

 

Cooling Setup

 

NVIDIA has continued the use of the blower cooler design that the GeForce GTX 780, GTX 780 Ti, GTX Titan Black, and the Maxwell-based GTX 980 on the new GTX Titan X. While it might look basic, the design is high-end, and it has some great performance that we'll talk about later on in the review, and a future article or two.

The GTX Titan X is identical in size, measuring in at 10.5 inches long, with the identical cooling system that powered the GTX 980. I'm a big fan of this design, and an even bigger fan of the GTX 980 as even when they're being stressed to the max, you don't hear them. Is the GTX Titan X going to be the same? We'll find out soon.

 

The entire GTX Titan X is lined with a massive aluminum baseplate, which acts as a gigantic heat sink that covers the VRM and other components near it.
