Nvidia announces $2999 Titan V, 'the most powerful PC GPU ever created'

Nvidia has just announced the newest addition to the Titan graphics card line, the Titan V, the catch here is that it is very much focused on AI and deep learning.

As it features the fully-enabled GV100 GPU, the Titan V also comes with 640 Tensor Cores, delivering over 100 TFLOPs of deep learning performance, something that Nvidia has been pushing quite hard these days.

That said, the Titan V is an insanely expensive GPU to be called a consumer-grade product, also there is no word on when Volta architecture might come to more affordable gaming GPUs.

All of that power is packed into the 21.1 billion-transistor GV100 GPU that is manufactured using a TSMC 12nm FFN high-performance process, customized for NVIDIA. Hopefully though, this is still an indication of the performance we can expect when Nvidia decides to refresh its gaming GPU lineup. The latest release from this lineup is Titan V GPU, which is created to bring tons of power to the people who are interested in dealing with machine learning applications. "With Titan V, we are putting Volta into the hands of researchers and scientists all over the world".

Some Google searches are now answered by selfie videos from celebrities
It's kind of like Wired's video series , in which celebs team up in pairs to answer frequently asked questions about themselves. Google considers these "selfie-style videos" as being "uniquely personal, authentic and delightful touch".

As per Nvidia's claims, it is the world's most powerful GPU designed for PCs; it's powered by the advanced Nvidia Volta GPU architecture.

The 12GB of HBM2 has a data rate of 1.7Gbps on a huge 3072-bit memory bus that provides a huge 652.8GB/sec of memory bandwidth. However, gamers still have to wait a while - the new Nvidia Titan V is a powerhouse designed primarily for machine learning, big data analysis and artificial intelligence development, and is priced at $2,999 (approximately Rs. 1,93,300 before taxes and duties).

Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang said in a statement -"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI". Given the drastic rise in processing power, it's clear that Nvidia has also managed to improve power efficiency thanks to the new manufacturing process as well as its architecture. Instead, the TITAN V is priced at $2,999 and is available right now from the NVIDIA store.
