NVIDIA Volta has been praised for it’s super high performance & intelligence level. If you remember our DGX Station article where we talked about the NVIDIA Tesla GPUs used in that Personal $69000 Super Computer that were based on this new Volta Architecture. But, that wasn’t really a general consumer level GPU. It was geared towards the development of Artificial Intelligence for example, Machine Learning, Deep Learning & stuff like that.
But, we all knew that Volta will be the successor to these consumer level Pascal based GeForce & TITAN GPUs that are used by people in Gaming, Content Creation etc. So, that era starts with the NVIDIA TITAN V, a new consumer level GPU that costs almost Three Thousand US Dollars ($2999 to be exact).

So, 5120 CUDA Cores are definitely a huge deal when it comes to Graphics Intensive Works like 4K Gaming or 3D Rendering. But, this new Titan V also has 640 Tensor Cores that means GPU is capable of some serious Machine Learning. So, this indicates that the TITAN V & even the upcoming GeForce series GPUs will also be quite intelligent alongside being super powerful.
NVIDIA also claims that the 21.1 billion transistors deliver 110 Tera-flops of raw horsepower, that’s almost 9 times its predecessor (The Titan XP). Also, the 12nm Process Technology shall deliver great efficiency.
So, for 2999 US Dollars are you actually planning to upgrade to the TITAN V from an older TITAN or TITAN XP ? Let us know in the comments section below. Oh, and if you’re curios about the availability then, it is selling via. the NVIDIA Store from today.
