Is the Nvidia Titan XP the king of all GPUs? Let’s see how well it dominates the market. It is currently out of many people’s grasps. The XP is priced at $1200 USD. Us Canadians up north will have a much harder time with the price after conversion. Nonetheless, many people have bought it and it is presently out of stock.
Here are the specs. It has 3584 CUDA cores, a base clock of 1417MHz that boosts up to 1531MHz, 12GB of GDDR5X and 224 texture units. Although it has lower clock speeds than the GTX 1080, everything else it has helps it to soar beyond.
For design, this is very similar to the GTX 1080 & 1070. It has the angular looks with the fan however the difference is that Nvidia has opted for a black color instead of the satin silver. At the left side is the “TITAN X” logo. In the front, we get the “GeForce GTX” green light up logo. For the backplate, we get an inscribed “GeForce Titan X” logo. Other than that, the backplate is pretty empty. Connectivity is the same as the other GTX 10-Series ports. It has one HDMI 2.0 port, three DisplayPort 1.3 ports and one ancient DVI port.
In terms of performance, let’s talk about the temperatures and noise. Temperatures hover around 85 degrees and acoustics is about 50 decibels. This is not a surprise especially when we have a super power GPU. For power cosumption, it only uses around 375 watts but Nvidia says you should have a 600 watt power supply or higher. In order to spit out lots of calculations, it needs the power in the first place. When benchmarking at 1440p at maxed out settings, this thing remained at the top every single time. There is usually a minimum frame difference of 10-15 frames. At 4K, it still remains the champion. At highest settings, it usually gets between 40-60 FPS which is spectacular.
Overall, this GPU is insanely powerful but the price is what holds back many people. Sadly, there will not be any custom version of the Titan XP and you can’t buy it from retailers. However, you can buy it from Nvidia directly or buy it with a whole computer from PC Builders like us from NCIX.
