The $1199 Beast: TITAN Xp
NVIDIA sent over two TITAN Xp graphics cards for some ongoing 8K benchmarking and gaming that I've been doing, which will be the article I write once this is finished - and boy, are they amazing cards. Just one of them is gaming and mining powerhouse, but I will have to put a note here: you would never, ever use the TITAN Xp in a mining situation... like, ever. Ever, ever, ever. OK?
This is purely a test between NVIDIA and AMD silicon and technology, with this being the very best that NVIDIA has in the consumer space. TITAN Xp is an expensive card coming in at $1199 while the Radeon RX Vega 56 is $399, RX Vega 64 air is $499, and the RX Vega 64 LCE is $599. TITAN Xp is double the price of the RX Vega 64 LCE but has nowhere near double the performance.
Under my testing at stock clocks, the TITAN Xp reached 62C comfortably with its fan spinning at around 1750RPM with 200W of power consumption (this is the most impressive part), while Ethereum mining performance was at 35MH/s, not bad for our first attempt.
I then played with a bunch of settings between reducing and then increasing the power limit on the TITAN Xp. All the way up at +120% power the card was consuming a much larger 300W of power, and our mining performance went to an insane 42MH/s. I was able to settle down to power being at -85% and seeing ETH mining performance at 41.3MH/s while the power consumption was lower at 265W.
NVIDIA has slapped on 12GB of GDDR5X on the TITAN Xp which is put to really good use in high-res gaming, oh... and Ethereum mining. I was able to overclock the 12Gbps GDDR5X up by 800MHz, for a total of 300W power consumption total, but 43MH/s of mining performance.
Get this; the memory bandwidth numbers are off the chart here with a completely out of this world 614GB/sec of memory bandwidth thanks to the wide 384-bit memory bus on TITAN Xp.
