“The world’s most advanced GPU” boasts 8 billion transistors.
Nvidia finally took the wraps off of what it’s claiming is “the world’s most advanced GPU” – the Titan X. Appearing at the State of Unreal session hosted by Epic founder Tim Sweeney, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang stated that the GPU features 12 GB of VRAM and 8 billion transistors. To showcase its raw power, a real-time Unreal Engine 4 tech demo running on the Titan X was released. Check it out above.
The Titan X will also reportedly become Nvidia’s costliest GPU till date. Official pricing was missing but previous rumours indicate that it could retail for $1,349. More information on the Titan X will be provided during the GPU Technology Conference taking place form March 17th to 20th and we can’t wait to hear more.
How will current games leverage the Titan X? For that matter, how does it out-match the current king of the GPUs, namely Nvidia’s own Titan Z? Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks to find out.
