Nvidia targets scientists with world's most powerful GPU for PCs

In April of this year, NVIDIA ratcheted up the performance a tad with a fully unlocked Pascal GP102 core in the form of TITAN Xp, boasting a full 12 TFLOPs of compute power.

Certain statements in this press release including, but not limited to, statements as to: the impact, performance, efficiencies, benefits and availability of TITAN V GPUs; TITAN V setting new performance standards for what is possible in a PC; and the value and impact TITAN V will deliver to deep learning researchers and its use to help change the world are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause results to be materially different than expectations. The GPU was launched by the company's founder and CEO Jensen Huang at the annual NIPS conference. Single-Precision performance will likely come in at a much more tame 14 TFLOPs, give or take depending on the GPU frequency.

"Our vision for Volta was to push the outer limits of high performance computing and AI".

Nvidia has, rather surprisingly, unveiled its newest graphics card called the Titan V. As its name implies, Nvidia's new flagship graphics card is based off of the company's Volta architecture. "I can't wait to see their breakthrough discoveries", Huang said. Power efficiency has reportedly been drastically improved with Volta as well; NVIDIA is claiming big performance gains, within the same power envelope as Pascal.

Customers will also be able to use Nvidia GPU Cloud software to get further performance improvements on their workloads.

"As an NVIDIA Inception partner, we trust NVIDIA to deliver innovative solutions to the AI market". "With TITAN V and NGC, Deep Cognition's Deep Learning Studio has built a powerful desktop solution for AI development, iteration and training". "With TITAN V, we are putting Volta into the hands of researchers and scientists all over the world". Meanwhile, clock speeds of the Nvidia Titan V is rated at 1200MHz (base) and 1455MHz (boost).
