NVIDIA's surprise announcement of its super-fast TITAN Xp graphics card has made me think about the reasoning behind its release... now, of all times - on the heels of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
It's also an incredibly confusing naming scheme that NVIDIA has adopted, but before I get into that - let's look at NVIDIA's previous TITAN X graphics cards, and their official (and unofficial) names:
- GeForce GTX Titan X (Maxwell) aka TITAN X(M)
- TITAN X (Pascal) aka TITAN X(P)
- TITAN Xp (Pascal) aka the new TITAN X(P)
NVIDIA just finished launching their new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which provided better than TITAN X(P) performance for nearly half the cost ($699 vs. $1200) - and now we have custom GTX 1080 Ti cards like MSI's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G that is beating both the GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition, and TITAN X(P).
Now we have the new TITAN Xp graphics card, and while it's indeed faster and beefier than the previous TITAN X(P) - was it needed weeks after the release of the GTX 1080 Ti? No, no it wasn't.
