NVIDIA Titan X Review - Monster Performance: 4K 60FPS On A Single GPU

NVIDIA has used a new GP102 GPU for the Titan X, which is slightly different to the GP104 used on the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards. We have a huge 3584 CUDA cores with 1417/1531MHz base and boost clocks, respectively.




The new Titan X has a huge 12GB of GDDR5X memory clocked at 10Gbps, and thanks to its 384-bit memory bus, we have a huge 480GB/sec of memory bandwidth. If we compare it against the Maxwell-based GeForce GTX Titan X which had the same 12GB of RAM but with GDDR5 instead of GDDR5X, the same 384-bit memory bus resulted in just 336GB/sec memory bandwidth, meaning NVIDIA has crammed an additional 42.8% memory bandwidth.



Now, 480GB/sec is a considerable jump over the 336GB/sec on the original GTX Titan X, and if we consider AMD had to use HBM1 technology on its Radeon R9 Fury X to hit 512GB/sec, NVIDIA has shown we don't need next-gen memory technology (yet) to have insane memory bandwidth numbers.


NVIDIA's new Titan X has a TDP of 250W, where it will pull the power down from the 8+6-pin PCIe power connectors. It has the same dual-slot design of all of NVIDIA's current and previous-gen graphics cards, with the same 3 x DP, 1 x HDMI and 1 x DVI display output supporting up to 8K displays at 60Hz.



Detailed Look



NVIDIA has always been a company that takes pride in its retail packaging. With the $1200 investment into the Titan X, you'd expect a beautiful box - yeah? Well, it looks great, but you only get the card inside - disappointing, but once you see the performance numbers, you won't care.




The front of the new Titan X box, not bad at all.




And again from the side, where NVIDIA says that the Titan X is "Powered By Pascal."




The front of the Titan X, with a beautiful black and silver style that looks aggressive, expensive, and FAST.




NVIDIA has used a backplate on the Titan X, with GeForce branding - weird, considering there's no GeForce branding anywhere else.




Display connectivity remains the same, with 3 x DP, 1 x HDMI and 1 x DVI on the Titan X.




Beautiful, ain't it?




From the top of the card, we have the GeForce GTX branding - again, weird because this is the Titan X and not the GeForce GTX Titan X.




We have 8+6-pin PCIe power connectors, which draw up to 250W TDP and under our testing, 340W for our entire system under load.
