NVIDIA launches GeForce GTX Titan X for US$999

NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang, kick starts the GPU Technology Conference with the launch of the GeForce GTX Titan X.

When we reviewed the GeForce GTX 980 late last year with a core code of GM204, we knew immediately the it wasn't meant to be the king of the second generation Maxwell GPU architecture.

Enter the GeForce GTX Titan X that was just launched moments ago by NVIDIA's CEO at the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California. The Titan X is a singe GPU graphics card that has 3072 CUDA cores, 192 texturing units and 384-bit memory bus packed within its 8 billion transistors GPU. That's quite a bit of firepower over the GeForce GTX 980 with 2048 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs and a 256-bit memory bus.

This is the true king of the second generation Maxwell GPU architecture with its GM200 core code.

The Titan X also boast 12GB of GDDR5 memory running at 7GHz memory clock; coupled with its 384-bit memory interface, its peak memory bandwidth at 336.5GB/s, 50% higher than the GeForce GTX 980.

As with other previous Titan-series of graphics cards, the GeForce GTX Titan X will be launched at US$999 and will be available in retail shortly.

The Titan X being branded under the GeForce label is not just meant for great 4K gaming (as our below video clip shows), it's advanced architecture, dense compute prowess and large frame buffer also handily lends itself to other more serious computing scenarios such as Deep Learning in a neural network system to be a researcher's best friend.

We'll be discussing more about the progress of neural network processing, deep learning and more in further news updates from NVIDIA GTC 2015. But to understand the power of the Titan X - check out our performance preview article!
