Nvidia unveils world's most powerful desktop GPU
Chipmaker Nvidia (Santa Clara, CA) has unveiled what it says is the fastest PC graphics card ever built, which transforms the PC into a supercomputer for AI research, data science, and creative applications.

TITAN RTX - dubbed "T-Rex" - delivers 130 teraflops of deep learning performance and 11 GigaRays of ray-tracing performance. It is powered by the company's new Turing architecture , which features dedicated ray-tracing and AI processors.

"Turing is Nvidia’s biggest advance in a decade - fusing shaders, ray tracing, and deep learning to reinvent the GPU,” says Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. "The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users - developers, scientists, and content creators."

Combining AI, real-time ray-traced graphics, next-gen virtual reality, and high-performance computing capabilities, TITAN RTX is designed for a variety of computationally demanding applications, says the company. Its features include:

  • 576 multi-precision Turing Tensor Cores, providing up to 130 teraflops of deep learning performance.
  • 72 Turing RT Cores, delivering up to 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray-tracing performance.
  • 24GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory with 672GB/s of bandwidth - 2x the memory of previous-generation TITAN GPUs - to fit larger models and datasets.
  • 100GB/s Nvidia NVLink can pair two TITAN RTX GPUs to scale memory and compute.
  • "Incredible" performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing.
  • VirtualLink port provides the performance and connectivity required by next-gen VR headsets.

TITAN RTX will be available later this month in the U.S. and Europe for $2,499.
