Simply 7 months after it introduced the Volta GPU microarchitecture with the Tesla V100 accelerator and the GV100 GPU because the successor to Pascal, American chip-maker NVIDIA, unveiled the Titan V on the 2017 version of the annual ‘Convention and Workshop on Neural Data Processing Methods (NIPS)’ being held at Lengthy Seaside, California. The machine succeeds the Pascal-based Titan X because the flagship NVIDIA video card and, is already up on the market on NVIDIA’s official webstore for $2,999.
The Volta-based, GV-100-powered, Titan V is NVIDIA’s first-ever HBM2-equipped graphics card with a 1.7Gbps reminiscence clock and 12GB VRAM. The cardboard options 5120 CUDA cores like different Tesla V100 chips, though, it loses out on 4GB of HBM2 and two of the 512-bit reminiscence controllers. The cardboard additionally comes with a whopping 110 TFLOPS of tensor efficiency (deep studying) with 640 tensor cores.
|Nvidia Titan V Specs|
|Reminiscence Clock||1.7Gbps HBM2|
|Reminiscence Bus Width||3072-bit|
|Half Precision||30 TFLOPS (Seemingly)|
|Single Precision||15 TFLOPS|
|Double Precision||7.5 TFLOPS (Seemingly)|
|Tensor Efficiency||110 TFLOPS|
|Transistor Rely||21.1 billion|
|Manufacturing Course of||TSMC 12nm FFN|
The cardboard is fabricated utilizing TSMC’s 12nm FFN course of and, contains a vapor chamber cooler with copper heatsink and 16 energy phases. By way of connectivity, the Titan V comes with 3 DisplayPorts and 1 HDMI port, however there appears to be no SLI connectivity on-board.
Asserting the Titan V on stage, Nvidia founder and CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, stated that the cardboard excels at computational processing for scientific simulation. In accordance with him,
Our imaginative and prescient for Volta was to push the outer limits of excessive efficiency computing and AI. We broke new floor with its new processor structure, directions, numerical codecs, reminiscence structure and processor hyperlinks”. The corporate additionally says that the cardboard is “very best for builders who need to use their PCs to do work in AI, deep studying and excessive efficiency computing.
Whereas the Titan V appears to be like nice on the spec-sheet, the pricing is one thing that has already attracted a number of destructive consideration from social media customers. Nevertheless, it does begin to make sense while you consider it as a ‘cheaper V100’ reasonably than a ‘sooner 1080 Ti’, seeing as this can be a true prosumer card that isn’t aimed toward players to start with.
