Nvidia launch their new flagship Titan Xp

Nvidia Titan Xp

 

When Nvidia released the GTX 1080 Ti, we have to admit that we were a little thrown aback with the companies decision to ultimately render their much more expensive Titan X card useless, thanks to a much more powerful and cheaper GTX 1080 Ti. Here at TECH_root, we were actually quite happy about the decision, as it mean’t that there was one less card to confuse the current offering, with all efforts being focused on the Ti. Unfortunately, or fortunately, however you look at it, the Titan X is back with a vengeance to claim that top spot again. This comes in the form of Nvidia’s rather quiet launch of the Titan Xp that is still built on the Pascal GPU.

 

The Titan Xp is essentially the same as a GTX 1080 Ti, except Nvidia have have enabled all of the GP102 GPU, meaning that the Titan Xp gets a full 384-bit memory bus width, as opposed to the GTX 1080 TI’s 352-bit. With the boost in clock speeds and additional memory bus width, it means that the Titan Xp creeps ahead in memory clock, with 11.4Gbps of GDDR5X compared to the 1080 Ti’s 11Gbps. Nvidia has also stuck with the same 12GB of GDDR5X memory that was found on the previous iteration of the Titan X, meaning that you are only going to be seeing a rough 7% increase in performance with the boost in clock speeds. And while 7% is a decent gain in performance, it is the price that makes purchasing this card over the GTX 1080 hard to justify.

 

The Titan Xp will set you back a ridiculous £1,159.00… you did read that correctly. That is almost double the price of the GTX 1080 Xp, begging the question, why not just buy two 1080 Ti’s if you are spending that much. However if you only have space for a single card solution, then you will be pleased to know that the Titan Xp is on sale now exclusively from Nvidia, with the full set of specifications found below:
