NVIDIA surprised the world with the announcement of its new Titan X, something that was rumored to feature HBM2 technology and the fully unleashed GP100 GPU. But, instead we received something equally as impressive - the first GP102-powered graphics card, the continued use of GDDR5X (but this time, with 12GB onboard) and an additional PCIe power connector.
NVIDIA debuted its Pascal architecture last year and slapped it onto its first graphics card in May with the debut of the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards. The GeForce GTX 1080 is a monster, with the GP104 GPU and 8GB of GDDR5X memory clocked at 10GHz. It's fast enough to handle anything you throw at it, but can't hit 4K 60FPS yet. NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1070 is an amazing value for money card as it provides near GTX 1080 levels of performance for $200+ less.
The previous GeForce GTX Titan X was a monster when it was released, and heck - it still is. It's powered by the Maxwell architecture and has 12GB of GDDR5 (no X here, folks), but it handles everything you throw at it. NVIDIA has dropped the GeForce branding from the new Pascal-based Titan X, so it's just called the 'NVIDIA Titan X,' which I like and hate at the same time.
Pricing & Availability
NVIDIA is pricing the new Titan X at $1200 USD, which is a mammoth price, but the performance will surely justify it, right? Everything I've read so far has it beating the GTX 1080 by 20%, which impresses me greatly, but it's also 70% more expensive. The 12GB framebuffer is a nice addition, and the hugely increased memory bandwidth will help with multi-monitor, 4K, and VR gaming - hopefully.
The new Pascal-based Titan X graphics card can only be purchased directly from NVIDIA's website, or in gaming PCs that you buy from folks like Digital Storm and Falcon Northwest.
