Do You Have $2,500 To Spare For The Nvidia Titan RTX?

Do You Have $2,500 To Spare For The Nvidia Titan RTX?

We all knew that ray tracing would be a hot feature in gaming. Likewise, a lot of folks thought that the new Nvidia RTX cards, most especially the GTX 2080 Ti, would be a fairly high-end GPU for quite some time. Then, of course, a few leaks popped up here and there teasing the Nvidia Titan RTX. That means the GTX 2080 Ti will have to move over because there’s a new king in town.

Here are the full specs from the official website:

  • Architecture – Nvidia Turing
  • Video Memory – 24GB GDDR6
  • Base Clock – 1350 MHz
  • Boost Clock – 1770 MHz
  • Tensor Cores – 576
  • RT Cores – 72
  • CUDA Cores – 4608
  • Memory Speed – 14 Gbps
  • Memory Interface Width – 384 bit
  • Total Memory Bandwidth – 672 Gbps
  • Texture Rate (Bilinear) – 510 GigaTexels/sec
Compare the above to the RTX 2080 Ti Founder’s Edition specs and you’ll see quite a difference:
  • Architecture – Nvidia Turing
  • Video Memory – 11GB GDDR6
  • Base Clock – 1350 MHz
  • Boost Clock – 1635 MHz
  • Tensor Cores – 544
  • RT Cores – 68
  • CUDA Cores – 4352
  • Memory Speed – 14 Gbps
  • Memory Interface Width – 352 bit
  • Total Memory Bandwidth – 616 Gbps
  • Texture Rate (Bilinear) – 420.2 GigaTexels/sec

Nvidia Titan Rtx

An Absolute Monster

Based on the above, if you thought the RTX 2080 Ti was already a beast, then perhaps the Titan RTX is the monster that swallows it whole. If you thought ray tracing might be causing some issues for games such as Battlefield V then perhaps the Titan RTX would be the one to wow your senses. There’s a feeling that it could be a potential gamechanger especially for 8k gaming and video editing. Then again, it also seems more suitable for scientific research owing to computing and rendering speeds.

Performance benchmarks are to follow suit when the Nvidia Titan RTX GPU releases later this month. Just like any monster, you can expect it to swallow your savings whole. The Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Founder’s Edition already sets you back by $1,199. As for the Titan RTX, it’s more than double that price at $2,499! So yes, it will be a very pricey and very top-of-the-line investment. At least it’s cheaper than the Quadro RTX series.
