NVIDIA Titan RTX now available

Priced at a cheap $2499 US

The NVIDIA RTX Titan is finally here and available with for “just” $2499 US. NVIDIA’s new flagship graphics card is based on the Turing TU102 chip in its full glory, offering even more CUDA cores than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, higher clock speeds and faster memory when compared to the RTX 2080Ti. Although this graphics card has been created for AI researchers, deep learning developers, data scientists and content creators, we are sure that some enthusiasts will also use this ridiculously expensive card for gaming.

According to NVIDIA, the Titan RTX is the most powerful desktop graphics card currently available. The card sports 4'608 CUDA cores, 576 Tensor cores and 72 RT cores. There is 24GB of GDDR6 memory which is twice the amount of what the previous-gen Titan models had to offer. The base clock features a frequency of 1'350MHz and the boost clock goes all the way up to 1'770MHz. The memory works at 1'750MHz (14'000MHz effective) and there is a 384-bit wide memory interface. At the moment the only thing missing is the card’s ray tracing performance.

The Titan RTX comes with a TDP of 280W and pulls the power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors. On the I/O side there are three DisplayPort outputs, one HDMI port and one USB Type-C port for NVIDIA VirtualLink. The cooler is similar to the one used on the GeForce RTX 20XX series graphics cards. NVIDIA has changed the color to light gold and improved the backlight by adding RGB LEDs.

With a price tag of $2'499 US, it's easy to say that this graphics card is well beyond anything most gamers can afford. Since the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is already extremely expensive the pricing of the RTX Titan almost seems like a joke.
