It also includes 24GB of GDDR6 VRAM - double that of the RTX 2080 Ti - and is aimed at the hardcore computing needs of researchers as well as wealthy gamers.
During the conference on Neural Information Processing Systems in Montreal, the RTX Titan dubbed as the T-rex was shown off by the NVIDIA CEO, Jensen Huang.
If you look at the RTX Titan design you can see that Nvidia is going for something that looks much like the current crop of Founders Edition cards in form, with the twin fans and styling. The card features almost the same raytracing performance as the Ti, but increased deep-learning muscle with 576 multi-precision Tensor Cores resulting in a hefty 130 TFLOPS of deep learning performance. That "Real Time" Star Wars demo was a DGX Station and Nvidia's professional GPU SKUs that cost way more than even this Titan RTX.
72 Turing RT Cores, providing up to 11 GigaRays per second of real-time ray-tracing performance.
"The introduction of T-Rex puts Turing within reach of millions of the most demanding PC users - developers, scientists and content creators".
Performance and memory bandwidth for real-time 8K video editing.
The TITAN RTX also integrates with Nvidia's RAPIDS open-source libraries to speed up machine learning workflows. All of the Titan RTX's professional attributes also commands a professional pricetag: it is to be made available in Europe and the United States for US$2,499 later in December.
NVIDIA will be launching the TITAN RTX - which company CEO Jensen Huang refers to as "T-Rex" in today's announcement - later this month in both the USA and Europe.
