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.

    My Steam library has 1,131 games at the moment so we definitely have a lot of things to talk about.

      Can someone explain me why PC gaming hardware is every year more and more and more expensive? A top end Nvidia card it cost something like 800$ max few years ago…its the same with RAM, and CPU’s… Wtf is happening? i cannot pay new hardware anymore, is not worth it for the cost…

      I remember i could have a top PC game for about 1400$ 10 years ago, now i have to spend at least 2500$.

        Thank you brother. I have the same feeling as you and nobody, god damn it has spoken of this…I have one theory, with all this “gamers” crap going on around and rich spoiled kids buying PCs for fun and to be colorful and good looking is pumping the prices, ah yes and the muuuuuch higher interest in gaming market, which lately become a business for many, instead of enthusiasts hobby, just look at the industry that is making the most money yearly – it’s “gaming” industry.

        Now, no wonder why we have game of the year award to shit game like “Fortnite” or why the pc parts are so expensive or why we see more and more stupid brainless nonsense games on the market, it’s just because of stupid people in groups wasting money on things they don’t need but they must have em to be “in”.

        It’s my theory but i might be wrong.
