Volta Arrives: nVidia Announces Titan V Graphics Card

While the Pascal architecture that powers Nvidia's GeForce 10-series gaming GPUs is far from showing any signs of age, the company has just released its first consumer product based on the next-gen Volta architecture.

As it features the fully-enabled GV100 GPU, the Titan V also comes with 640 Tensor Cores, delivering over 100 TFLOPs of deep learning performance, something that Nvidia has been pushing quite hard these days.

This Volta architecture features a major redesign of the streaming multiprocessor that is at the centre of the GPU.

But at almost $3,000 it is really aimed at developers, researchers and companies that wish to create and power AI systems that tap into the parallel processing capabilities of GPU, helping them crunch through massive amounts of data more efficiently than central processing units would.

Nvidia calls its new compute units Tensor Cores, and they are designed specifically for deep learning, with independent integer and floating-point data paths that can operate in parallel. Meanwhile, clock speeds of the Nvidia Titan V is rated at 1200MHz (base) and 1455MHz (boost).

Nvidia founder and CEO Jensen Huang said in a statement -"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI".

Nvidia cards are the de facto standard for running machine learning workloads and today, the company added yet another high-end compute-centric card to its line-up: the Titan V. Given the drastic rise in processing power, it's clear that Nvidia has also managed to improve power efficiency thanks to the new manufacturing process as well as its architecture. "I can't wait to see their breakthrough discoveries", Huang said.

The 12GB of HBM2 has a data rate of 1.7Gbps on a huge 3072-bit memory bus that provides a huge 652.8GB/sec of memory bandwidth.

Along with the purchase of TITAN V, users can gain access to the latest GPU-optimized AI, deep learning and HPC software for free.

The Nvidia store shows the new bridge at 599 USD a piece, in the store, it's the one right next to the 30 USD HB-SLI bridge.
