    Nvidia announces Titan X: 12 GB VRAM, 8 billion transistors

    source

    At Epic founder Tim Sweeney's State of Unreal talk from GDC this morning, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang came to the stage to announce the Titan X, which he calls "most advanced GPU the world's ever seen."
    It began as Sweeney lamented that achieving the potential of virtual reality and photorealistic graphics is going to require better GPUs. Huang joined him on stage, joking, "This GDC is about VR ... it needs an amazing GPU. And so the problem that I've got is this: If I launched our next generation GPU two weeks from now, GDC 2015 would be a bust. Now that's a legitimate problem—not just for me, that's a legitimate problem for the world."
    Huang then unveiled the Titan X, boasting a 12 GB buffer and "8 billion transistors," and presented the first one off the line to Sweeney. We'll have more as the story develops.

    And then shortly after showed this all in real-time using GTX980's:



    All I can say is that I am loving the way things have been announced this GDC, especially with VR in mind and this monster looks to be quite ravishing. The real question is whether those 12GB VRAM is fully usable or is it 2x 6GB VRAM?

    8 Billion transistors for 8 billion dollars

    Doesn't a 970 perform in the same ballpark as the old titan? And the old titan (adjusted for inflation) cost somewhere in the region of Ten hundred million GBP. Not worth it imo

    Jokes aside, wonder what the specs of the chip are? A 12GB frame buffer is insane for a single chip GPU...

    I'm more interested in the bandwidth to be honest with you all. Don't get me wrong, 12GB (or 11.5GB as Yuuichi pointed out ) is quite a bit but what about the bus? At the end of the day, you could have 32GB of VRAM on the card but if Nvidia continues on the 256bit bus width as they have for the 980 or the 384bit bus width they have for the 700 series cards, they are only exacerbating the increasing bottleneck issues the newer games have. Meanwhile, AMD has 512bit bus width on the R9 200 series cards. I hate to say it but bandwidth means more to me than how much ram a given graphics card has. This is an area that needs serious upgrades. My hope is that both Nvidia and AMD make improvements in this area instead of focusing so much on the amount of ram.

    Yep, I want one for that and to actually make use of my 144Hz screen since getting a 2560x1440 screen I've had to target 50-60fps rather than when I was targetting 90-120fps with my 1080p screen. Though GSync has made the transition a little less painful

    Considering that it will use (I'd imagine) 50W more than my GTX980, I would say an 850-900W PSU at most for dual Titan X's.

    I'm migrating to 40" 4k monitors for work (that's what I tell my wife anyway, wink) and am preparing a new build to drive those displays, so I'm eagerly anticipating the NDA lift today. If things look good, then I'll probably pick of a couple of these to SLI.
