The new Maxwell-based GeForce GTX Titan X is capable of training AlexNet for deep learning, at magnitudes faster than previous GPUs like the Titan, Titan Black and even a 16-core Xeon CPU from Intel. The Xeon CPU with 16 cores takes 43 days to train AlexNet, but Titan X drags this down to just three days. Even the Titan Black sits at five days, while the Titan is at 6 days.
