Taking a closer look at the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X, you can see that the newest iteration of the RTX has some impressive numbers. Among them is a six-phase power supply with overvoltage capability, a TDP rating of 250 watts, and 3,072 CUDA cores. And it comes with 12GB of GDDR5 memory.
GM200 is a graphics chip based on the Maxwell architecture, a newer architecture developed by NVIDIA. Maxwell is designed to improve efficiency and performance per die area. The chip includes a 384-bit memory interface and supports feature level 12.1.
The GM200 GPU comprises 8 billion transistors on a 28nm process. It’s also composed of six Graphics Processing Clusters, and each GPC shall consist of four SMMs, which share the same instruction buffer. The GPU includes 96 Raster operation units, 192 Texture Mapping Units, 48KB of shared texture/L1 cache, and a 384-bit memory interface.
The GPU is cooled by a blower-style fan that exhausts hot air through a large aluminum fin array heatsink block. The fan’s design means it runs quietly when the card is under load.
3,072 CUDA cores
During the Game Developers Conference, NVIDIA revealed their new flagship card, the GeForce GTX Titan X. Featuring a fully unlocked GM200 GPU and 192 texture units, this new card is a step up from the GTX 980.
GeForce GTX TITAN X comes with 12GB of GDDR5 memory. This continues NVIDIA’s tendency to outfit Titan cards with as much memory as possible. The memory runs at a 7Gbps bandwidth, similar to the GTX 980.
GTX Titan X will be available to purchase soon. Pricing information has yet to be announced. The new card is based on the Maxwell architecture, designed to deliver power efficiency. It’s also designed to support 4K resolutions.
The GTX Titan X features a black PCB. The card also has an all-black cover, which includes a clear polycarbonate window.
12GB of GDDR5 memory
Until the release of HBM, the GeForce GTX Titan X is only better than the GTX Titan Black. However, it is also much more expensive. Nvidia is charging the highest prices for the cards.
It has eight billion transistors, more than all of Nvidia’s current flagships. The memory subsystem serves up 336GB/s of bandwidth. This is the most considerable bandwidth of any single-GPU card currently on the market.
The memory is accessed with a 384-bit bus. The GDDR5 memory is clocked at 7GHz. A two-phase power supply backs the memory. The card also supports simultaneous multi-projection. The GPU has been reported to have 192 texture units.
It has a 267mm aluminum heatsink. The cover is made from black aluminum. The GPU itself has an illuminated Nvidia logo.
Six-phase power supply with overvoltage capability
Whether you’re looking to buy a new Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti or a high-end GPU for your PC, you will want to pick a power supply that can deliver the high voltages your graphics card needs. Fortunately, this is easy to do.
First, you will want to measure the voltage output of the power regulator. This can be done by placing two wires (AWG32-28) between the positive and negative terminals of the capacitor.
Next, you will want to measure your graphics card’s voltage for a good clock. For GTX 980 Ti, this means 275 watts at the maximum power target. If you’re looking to overclock your card, you may need to increase the voltage even more.
Now, there is a little more to it than simply measuring the voltage. Your card may need a few hardware modifications to deliver the high voltages it needs.
TDP rating of 250 watts
NVidia’s GeForce GTX TITAN X has a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 250 Watts. This high-end video card is a good choice for well-heeled gamers.
The GTX Titan is based on the GM200 graphics chip, manufactured at 28nm. It features a copper vapor chamber and dual-slot aluminum heatsink.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX TITAN X is a video card for desktop computers. It is based on the Maxwell 2.0 microarchitecture codenamed GM200. It has over seven billion transistors. The card is connected to a system via a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card has an HDMI 2.0b output and a Dual-Link DVI output.
The TITAN X’s memory bandwidth is 480GB/s. Its memory frequency is clocked at 5GHz. The GPU also has a base clock of 1,417MHz and a boost clock of 1,531MHz. The card also features three DisplayPorts, with one output supporting 8K at 60Hz and the other supporting DP 1.3 and 1.4.
